    I understand that. I'm talking about the authors of the Mesa code. It seems from this article and others that the Mesa drivers are written by the Mesa team and not the vendor.
  2. stupid question. I would that in Linux the...

    stupid question. I would that in Linux the graphics driver is spread out in many components such as DRM, X, Mesa. Wouldn't the vendor be the one writing the code in those respective sections?...

    Just make BIOS updating through the BIOS menu itself a mantadory option. Few days ago I had to install Vista just to update an HP desktop. Asus is the only vendor that allows updating on a bare metal.

    given the incompleteness of Wayland in Fedora 21, I doubt it would be ready in 23.

    swapping out a kernel is dangerous from a standpoint of stability. Vendors used to give you kernel updates back in the days, until they realized its perils. You don't have to build a new kernel, just...

    I sent a letter to Bryan Lunduke and I'm making it an open letter.

    I've always wanted these three issues to be widely talked about in the Linux world because I think they are the most important...

    I agree. Although I don't like forks, the OpenBSD devs' hands were tied. Because MS or Apple either create the software themselves or keep internal forks. They are not going to sit tight and accept...

    Does Wayland need or work with DRI/DRM or it is a X-only thing

    I am a big critic of the linux graphics stack and yet it is better in many ways to the pre-vista stack in Windows. The responsiveness of the stacking WM in Windows in awful. The reason people use XP...

    millions of macs which have 32 bit efi.

    So use ZFS.

    Frankly I'm sick and tired of his theatrical BS. If he was quick to anger I could sympathize but he is just putting on a show because people love the drama. You're a computer scientist, act like one.

    about time. I still don't understand why we have 32 bit uefi to begin with, but whatever.
  15. I don't understand. Is systemd a requirement for...

    I don't understand. Is systemd a requirement for Gnome now or what? My educated guess would be no, since Gentoo still can run it, but I'm a bit confused.

    this abstraction stuff is only true in college textbooks. In reality, software is poorly abstracted and one change in the stack affects everything in the chain. that's why browser makers often have...

    it's a f***ing disgrace that KVM and virtmanager are so cumbersome to set up that a vast majority of Linux users use Virtualbox. My mom could set up Hyper-V on Windows 8, it's just a matter of...

    You sir hit the nail on the head. To win you either have to beat the price (I'm not going to pay for a Cisco firewall and will go with an Untangle one) or give the buyer a better value proposition....

    i thought the new negeration of laptops would be 64 bit uefi only. I'm happy since we would get uefi support on old Macs.

    As a proud hater of Linux and the FOSS "movement" I think the "Linux is not GNU/Linux" line that the kernel cabal uses it total crap. The OS was always the GNU. The kernel was chosen to be Linux...
