    The problem is that there simply isn't much energy that can be harvested in a compact, portable form factor without relying on specific environmental conditions like "leave me in lying in direct...

    Not necesarily never. musl libc is working toward having an "LSB-compatible ABI".

    Given how having some MTA is so essential to so many programs (eg. cron), even if it's just ssmtp, that wouldn't surprise me either.
  4. I'm not sure how Nouveau is handling it these...

    I'm not sure how Nouveau is handling it these days but, with the non-KMS binary drivers, it's not the VT that's the problem at all. (Because VT and X11 do their own modesetting without KMS, the GPU...

    Definitely nifty, but it looks like it'd still suffer from the #1 smartwatch problem: needing to be charged all the time.

    I'm more interested in the Texas Instruments EZ430 as an experimentation...

    It has nothing to do with Linux being a "DRM-free platform". It's that, because they handle support themselves and offer a 30-day money-back guarantee if they can't get the game working for you on a...

    To be fair, I did know how egocentric it was to post that and did it anyway so I apologize for that.

    (I just needed to cut loose a bit and, for some reason, writing the post and then hitting...

    I was actually a pending backer for Wasteland 2 when it was on Kickstarter but, before the time ran out, I discovered that they weren't willing to guarantee GOG/Desura/Humble/SteamPlay-like "switch...

    The problem with that approach is that the DRM-free and Steam versions are different builds.

    If I were following your approach, I'd never have known that my DRM-free DVD+R backup of Strike Suit...

    They're all probably waiting for someone else to be the guinea pig for a CoreBoot+Payload combination that provides a menu-driven, configurable UEFI offering.

    If I remember correctly, Chromebooks...

    It's not classically good, but the world of transitional poses we normally only see via slow-motion cameras offers much stranger things.

    That just looks like he's taking a moment to centre himself...

    I have to agree with Sho_.

    In KDE 3.5.x, I did the vast majority of my work with Konqueror being used as a generic splittable, tabbable, KIO-backed KPart harness.

    I'm not sure, but "Direct Rendering Manager" is an obvious and intuitive name when you look at how it developed.

    It's the part of the Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI) that Manages access to...

    These days, the config I usually see is Alt<->Meta and Win<->Super.

    PHP is so broken that I'm skeptical they could fix all of the problems and still have something existing PHP programmers would recognize.

    I'm always open to it but there are two main obstacles:

    Even without X11 or things that are useless to servers like libalsa and PulseAudio, GNU componentry is a shrinking fraction of the core userland.

    "GNU" isn't "the" Linux vendor, nor is it a Linux distro, so you need the slash. You meant "GNU/Linux" (interpreted as "GNU over Linux" in the same way that "1/2" is "1 over 2").

    Even then, it's...
