    C# has been an Open Standard (i.e. ECMA/ISO) for more than a decade.

    The Phoronix community is incapable of rational discussion around anything relating to Microsoft. "Microsoft have put source on GitHub for their new stuff, with a GPLv3-compatible license (and patent...

    Clause 3 of the Apache 2.0 license:



    This is pretty much the same patent grant language as found in GPLv3

    Apache 2.0 is a GPLv3-compatible license with a patent grant. What's *wrong* with Apache 2.0?

    Use of Steam requires a valid Steam account. Creating a Steam account requires an email address, and acceptance of the Steam Subscriber Agreement.
  6. It is up to the developer to decide how to...

    It is up to the developer to decide how to approach the DRM question.

    At its simplest, if a game builds against the SteamWorks API, then initializing that API requires a valid Steam auth token,...

    A bigger issue than the feedstock - assuming it vaguely resembles the animal's natural diet - is sufficient space for natural behaviours like "moving". Battery-farmed meat isn't ethical, but is *is*...

    It's pure community work.

    Would Valve offer me a job? Their hiring requirements are so insanely high (much higher than Google's) I really don't see it happening. They don't hire people just for...

    Because it's the easiest way to get audio *and* video through an HDMI/DisplayPort cable

    It's not an RT kernel. That's misreporting by Phoronix.

    Yes I'm sure. Every set of instructions said "and when the installer falls, drop to console and do X". Doing better isn't hard, including making an isohybrid image with both UEFI and BIOS support.

    Those instructions are so bad. Making a real BIOS remix of the installer isn't hard, but nobody with the knowledge to do it has done so yet. I won't until the redistribution terms are made clearer

    Here's your hint: SteamOS REQUIRES UEFI. The shipping beta does not support any other firmware. And thank fuck for the OEMs, since it means they can use conventional motherboards.

    A few devices abuse the HID joystick standard, including accelerometers and UPS battery monitors

    The theoretical benefit is if you whitelist your own key only, then you can't boot anything unexpected. No Windows, for example. No rootkits.

    This is a Javaism. Hotspot allocates enormous amounts of memory.

    Mono isn't particularly RAM-heavy.

    Jonimus was absolutely correct in his assessment back in August, when he made it.

    Last Light only shipped last night. Michael's post about it having been released, in August, was false.
