    @gens:

    Well I'm always in favor of alternatives. I like being able to chose, as I've learned quality of software comes and goes as times change. So I'm really in favor of systemd *and* whatever...
  2. I know nothing about systemd, but all this...

    I know nothing about systemd, but all this directed hate and ad hominem attacks have convinced me that systemd is doing something really important and necessary.

    Also, I cannot begin to understand...

    My main issue with PHP is that it is nearly impossible to write secure websites. One time my employer inquired about the security of our scratch-build internal (but web connected) CRM system; "Is it...

    The way I read it is that they had some platform/vendor specific code being enabled/disabled that caused the issues. It may be as simple as some FBO/z-buffer being 24-bit instead of 32-bit, or some...
  5. On the upside: if the UI will be defined as...

    On the upside: if the UI will be defined as HTML/JS, one will have more freedom to customize it. As in, something resembling a traditional uncluttered Firefox 1.0 UI (or whatever one prefers). :)
  6. You are correct, the commands may just as well be...

    You are correct, the commands may just as well be entirely lost or ignored.

    I don't currently use SDL2 because there are some minor SDL1.2 features lacking in SDL2. I may port it later, just not...
  7. Thanks Ansla, that was very helpful. The code in...

    Thanks Ansla, that was very helpful. The code in my application is exactly the same code in your sample. I use the proper display and window handles. The SDL window is resizable and the SDL resize...
  8. Yeah, that's one of the bits of code that doesn't...

    Yeah, that's one of the bits of code that doesn't work in my application on XFCE (I copied your code verbatim just to be sure). I think it fails because 'X11/XFCE doesn't guarantee a window to ever...

    IMO the developer may be better off not supporting Linux at all under these circumstances. Not every customer knows their machine hardware (nor should one these days). Sure it may have an Intel...

    Valve will likely give away a free copy of Half Life 3 with the machines. :)

    If they'd hold back the HL3 PC version for a few days, the machines would be sold out in no time. But Valve (IIRC it...

    Oh there definitely are, and use is very widespread actually. It is not often a button, that is true. But most messaging applications have an option to start minimized. Or applications that minimize...

    Pointer lock (assuming we're talking about the same thing) is actually a poor workaround, precisely because on some platforms there was no relative mouse motion vector available. This method resets...

    While I'm very happy with where Wayland is taking us, isn't it kind of sad that we need announcements for trivial things like this? These features apparently are rocket science, but it really...

    ReactOS is welcome here!

    There's nothing inherently wrong with Win32 (well except for some weird details that can be fixed in this project). The problem with Windows always has been more related...

    Well obviously I did read his blog post (which I found very insightful) and I guessed from the last name libv wasn't an American. But that was my point; it seems we are being influenced far, far to...

    @libv: What is your stance/opinion on 'clean room' reverse engineering? In this particular case (or otherwise)?

    I find it a really disturbing thought that there are people afraid of learning...

    This.

    I know many folks will probably disagree with me, but I also feel it is a poor thing to do. There's plenty of fragmentation at distro scale already. I always suggest Linux newbies to install...

    GPUs are no longer as sloppy as they used to be. All modern GL HW implementations by now have things like exact rasterization of lines, texture filtering (finally) worked out, and is consistent. Even...

    Wow, you are either confusing the Pi with something else, or utterly clueless (or a troll). I've been doing extensive floaty things on the Pi anyway. It loves floats, and eats them fast (especially...

    If you don't know what's wrong with the photo, then I can't help you. You just don't get it. It is the *context* dude. It might have been ok for a review, but not *this* story. The idea is all about...
