    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...

    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.
  7. 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...

    my hunch is that the slowness has to do with poor hardware support/optimization. on some computers Linux boots unnaturally slow too. Usually those are funky firmware handoff bugs. The slowness I...

    I think this plays into the aura of BS that surrounds the FreeBSD community. They constantly claim that their OS is "faster" than Linux, while the benchmarks claim otherwise. Even without systemd,...

    Microsoft got there because they understood the reason d'etre of computers. It's the applications stupid! The platform's worth is the richness and the quality of the content. No one gives a wet slap...

    I wonder if mesa and the x teams should merge into one. there is a lot of unneeded back and forth communication. DRI/DRM/Mesa/Cairo/X/Wayland should be a well oiled machine. This is the big advantage...

    but they wouldn't. you don't run a graphics stack project like amateur radio operators. these people need serious resources which they don't have. if I was them, I would merge Mesa with the X team....

    well C would really be avoided at all costs. Not because it is a bad language, but because it doesn't have native support for classes. you can kinda make your our workarounds around that, but its...
