    Publicity, bragging rights and some good resume fodder for the BSD developers. Not much, but what did the Linux ecosystem get from Microsoft not using their TCP stack code?
  2. MySQL did much the same thing, double licensing...

    MySQL did much the same thing, double licensing it's code under both the GPL and a proprietary license. So assuming (in the absence of evidence to the contrary) that Nicholas Bellinger and RTS are...
  3. How is power usage being measured?

    How is the power consumption being measured? Is independant hardware being used to measure power passing from plug to device (i.e. killawatt and it's more sophisticated brethern)? Or is a power...

    Has anyone gotten: UT2004, Doom 3, Quake 4 and/or Quake Wars working with recent open source AMD drivers? I haven't been able to find any reports one way or the other.

    However, it was flaws in the mesa drivers which forced Kwin to do the "wrong" thing.

    I was using xf86-video-ati and KDE together for a year or two without incident. My main problem with the open source drivers is lack of game support (and I believe this mostly due to upstream mesa...

    It isn't necessary for a rolling release distro to have bleeding edge versions of every piece of software. Slackware being the prime example of this. You are correct that frequently updated backports...

    I think this is a distribution problem

    I assume Martin has already updated the KWin compositing whitelist to include the new Intel driver. So biggest problem here seems to be that Ubuntu (and perhaps other distributions) are unlikely to...
  11. "developing viciously"?

    What do you mean by "developing viciously"? Do you mean to imply that Ubuntu/Canonical have a malevolent motive or goal in developing Unity? :confused:

    FWIW I'm planning to buy a Linux copy of Oil Rush once my new graphics card is delivered and setup.

    As much as I appreciate AMD's open source driver efforts, no open source driver will run Oil...

    Sweet. Beautiful graphics, and who doesn't love dinosaurs? So long as it has a decent single player mode (campaign, multi-player bot match, whatever), I want it.

    If I recall correctly, isn't the VESA driver is required for some VNC features to work? So for a server or virtual machine controlled by remote VNC access VESA might make sense. Also there are...
  18. Use a separate /home partition

    Combined with a separate /home partition, or better yet separate /home/user partitions for each user, the snapshot capability would be pretty nice - you could rollback the system and user data...
