    As posted here, a lot of people are saying that if you don't like the "articles" (aka ranting blog posts), then leave. Between the blog posts and enough trolls to make slashdot look positively...

    You should probably look at the E17 provided themes (the ones in the THEME directory on svn).
    Not sure I get your point though - are you saying that your impression of an entire desktop shell is...

    Sounds a bit strange - I haven't encountered anything like that in a long time, and I normally do a complete rebuild every couple of weeks. That's just minimal E17 requirements though - no "extras"...

    A few days old now, but E17 apparently has a release date. Actual date not specified, but is "less than 6 months away". Hope they manage that target.

    From 2010. The compiler guys themselves aren't sure.
    And again, there are some things native to C++ that aren't in C, so when doing it the "C way"...

    Now that's more like it!
    Still, based upon that, I find it encouraging enough that the difference is relatively minor - any rewrite of sections into C++ (i.e C++ features not present in C) would...

    you haven't made statements that make sense lately, have you?
    (sorry, couldn't resist that one)

    Seriously though, got anything to back up that statement, or do you believe it just because? If...

    Why would it take longer?
    Regarding putting C++ into gcc, there's been talk of it for a long time, and their general guidelines are to only use something if it makes things "better". There are some...

    all this speak of OpenGL raises one good question: does Valve provide customised code paths for different vendors and drivers? I wouldn't be surprised if they did - you can get quite a performance...

    Not really, as it turns out. Sometimes things just aren't that simple, which is why different render backends are used (ogre uses plugins for that). Even simple things like matrix manipulation can be...

    It's not really a matter of comparing it to s3tc - it's a compression library for the dxtn formats itself. It doesn't touch on the issue of supporting s3tc in drivers.

    On a different subject:...

    As far as I know, you just need networking, and the same version of gcc. Of course, you might need the the kernel recompiled to enable networking, depending on the setup. At any rate, the gentoo...

    To make me unpopular in this thread, now I would say that it's "official" that Valve will make Steam on Linux. Previous posts on this site over the last years were, and still are, incorrect. After...

    The problem I think is in the what comes pre-packaged. A big part of AMD's open source driver push is that it allows everything to be distributed and work out of the box - no need to go and download...

    Technical reasons. S3TC is a rather good texture compression - 1/8th size best case scenario (from RGBA to DXT1, alpha channel discarded). Amount of memory used isn't the only issue; there's also...

    Not really my area of expertise...but is it a sata controller power management event? Might be causing a drive reset & power on. Also try disabling hot swap (if enabled).
