    Intel's a big company. Not all departments have an equal interest in Linux.

    Due in no small part to the "backwards compatible with static PNG files" part.

    1. By design, any APNG file is also a valid static PNG file, just like every animated GIF is also a valid static GIF....

    Here's hoping it'll gain Oculus Rift support eventually. That'd really be interesting.
  4. Better, but I still prefer to leave my options...

    Better, but I still prefer to leave my options open in ways AGPL complicates and I'm still not a big fan of the Java experience on a system where the firmware, nVidia binary drivers, Flash, Dropbox,...

    AGPL3, written in Java, and no apparent effort to act as a porting aid for an existing RPG Maker version? No wonder it never came to my attention before.
  6. Yes. I'm having trouble remembering the name, but...

    Yes. I'm having trouble remembering the name, but I remember someone actually got to poking around in the VideoCore blob and recognized one of the commercially available RTOSes.

    How it works is...

    Gigabit? I'll be interested in seeing what the bandwidth on the internal buses is. I know the CuBox spec sheet notes that internal restrictions actually cap it at 470Mbit.

    As for the SATA, I...

    That would explain why really weak, noisy TV signals would tend to go grayscale when I was a kid.
  9. What nightmarex is saying is that you don't...

    What nightmarex is saying is that you don't actually need randomness... you just need something the other guy will consistently fail to predict.
  10. No, what you see on your TV depends on how the...

    No, what you see on your TV depends on how the TV's electronics interpret the noise. I haven't verified it, but I get the impression that it's grayscale because of the compatibility hacks which...

    First, that "Go's garbage collection is optional but it's not recommended" is part of what I meant when I said "or using them without their runtime is prohibitively awkward and/or limiting".

    Yeah. If I want Final Fantasy on Linux, I'll just install PCSX and PCSX2 and borrow the PS1/PS2 discs for FF 1, 2, and 4 through X from the living room. Better to emulate the good ones than play the...

    I should have been more clear. What I meant is that languages like D, Go, and various LISPs either cannot be run without their runtime (eg. garbage collection not optional) or using them without...

    And I know PHP, Python, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, Lua, C, shell script, a bit of C++ and Java, and I used to know a bit of Perl... Python is my favourite for exactly that purpose and I'd be curious...

    ...but, at the same time, a templating language that hasn't kept up with developments in templating. Hence so many people use templating engines like Twig and Smarty/Dwoo for PHP.

    Actually, Rust is pretty much unique in having a lot of similarities to C++11 but with compile-time enforcement of the C++ best practices for memory management and an ABI that allows foreign calls...

    Unless you're building a retro box. Then you wanna start researching the bazillion different models of SoundBlaster 16 and head over to eBay to pick one up.

    I'll wait until you have an opportunity to benchmark it. I've seen a lot of boards that looked faster than the Pi but benched slower due to things like a weak FPU.

    (I am hopeful though. Last I...

    In all fairness, though, I am quite worried about libinput. One of the stated design goals was to factor out a lot of the bugs by "using sane defaults to prune back the combinatorial explosion of...
