    Number of years ago I would've been all over an Ubuntu phone - the sharing and honesty of it all - but the "canonical" since then... maybe he thought it was necessity for expeciendy, but principles...
  2. Tahdy-da

    If I recall correctly, Canonical's code names have quickly settled on a single word...

    For this 14.04 release I suggest that single identifying nomer to be Tardy!

  3. Animated gifs

    It'd be nice if gif animation could finally be made user-selectable, e.g with a click.

    For now it's "about:config" and them common pests set to "none".

    I'm not sure about the percentages estimated here, but...

    THIS.

    The issues with Canonical however started much earlier than the latest Mir and adware adventures and while many (even most?)...

    Sigh.

    Sorry if I brought this on.

    I'm from Northern Europe, rather well educated and all too well aware about the past and current shortcomings (OK, an understatement there) of the...

    Hear, hear!

    Jolla (in particular the software side) rather than the corporatized Tizen is the "closest" thing we have to an open stack able to handle all the essentials and more for 90+% people....

    Well, a thriving templates scene would certainly be worth a lot to many people.

    There aren't too many areas where the user community could really get engaged and help themselves and each other.

    The benchmarks are great and appreciated, but what does it actually mean for a netbook equipped with the GMA3150 in terms of real-life user cases?

    Since that chipset's useless in 3D anyway, what...

    True. Here's hoping... I usually root for the underdog (e.g. AMD), but I must admit Intel has been doing a sterling job looking after their past platforms.

    Now it's down to our dear devs to make...

    @darkseider

    Hostility due to elementary reading miscomprehension? That might be somewhat embarrassing.

    There was no 1:1 ARM vs Intel IB comparison, but a reference perhaps a little out of...

    What I and arguably most Linux-using potential AMD Fusion buyers want to know is simply whether distros support the new platform when it's released (or if later, when) *and* how well it is supported...

    Excellent points.

    Ultimately the kernel is there to accommodate different user-space cases, with sane defaults, options and all.

    The two sides of the whole (i.e us all) need to cooperate; and...

    Fair enough. I'll go with the known (OSS) supportable hardware and steer away from the frustratingly mouthwatering Fusion news but will be open to give AMD a try when that day comes. And bridgman,...

    If the AMD proprietary drivers are approaching feature parity with MS platforms, that sounds like good news for that set of Linux/Xorg users.

    It is unfortunate that AMD's Linux/X.org support remains half-heartedly inadequate (although basically functional).

    Their IGP and (upcoming) "Fusion" combos would be excellent in terms of...

    Well d'oh (for me ;-)

    Thanks agd5f. The table lists ATI hardware features up to R700 series (aka Radeon HD 4xxx) so I presume the current HD 5xxx line is called "Evergreen".
