    Oh nice, sounds even better! I'll look into it when i have the time to tinker with my computers a bit again.
    I'll report back then, hope it works with my trusty r300 gpu.

    I've bought it. Even though I didn't get any of them to work yet (and, al least in the case of trine, probably never will with free drivers), I'm happy with the purchas.
    I simply wanted to support...

    Oh noez, Politics!

    +1 for patents being the greatest threat to a widespread adoption of Linux, though.
    The mere idea that you can trivially make claims to own an idea, not an implementation, is...

    What I'd really like to see would be a success of the ongoing efforts in standardization of the mobile/embedded space (there was this linaro foundation, and other bodies, trying to get some order in...

    Sticky: Debian woody, 2006.

    While having heard about the concept earlier, I never got to try it out.
    That was, until I was drafted to serve in the military for 9 months (as is mandatory in Germany... Yes, we still have that,...

    Sounds logical. Since the linux crowd goes to great lengths for their OS to work, this could be a good place to get some crowd-funding to work.
    If done right (set up in a central manner, with one...

    Hm. Looks like most of the benchmarks were rather CPU bound anyway (largely the same scores even at different resolutions). But still, the gallium driver's results seem to be 'offset', which either...

    Well, i think that exactly this is going to be hard. As bridgman mentioned repeatedly, the DRM and content decoding seem to be tightly entangled in UVD, at least tightly enough to make their legal...

    Just wait a few years until all those home appliances are networked and home owners are confronted with DDoS attacks against their home-network: "transfer 5000$ to this account, or within 48h all...

    Nice to see :)
    This code dump happened much quicker than i thought. If power management works reasonably on netbooks equipped with such a chip, i'd happily ditch my current atom netbook for a...

    I'd doubt we'll ever see larrabee, at least in any form resembling a discrete, graphic-focused chip. I could imagine seeing something of a coprocessor, or something like this.

    Good to see that...

    Hm, i guess support for UVD3 will arrive eventually in the closed driver (in time for an ubuntu 11.04-"early preview"?), and the open drivers will have to do with some shader-based solution, which...

    Thanks for giving insight into your plans. In my view, the freedoms offered by an adapted debian installation could be well complemented by the freedom to install own disks. People who know how to...

    Thanks for the reply. Any thoughts on selling disk-less systems?

    Wow, hadn't thought that so many people would bash ubuntu for this plan. IMHO, Shuttleworth is trying to move ubuntu radically into the direction of 'idiot-proof linux for the masses'. Unity as...

    Wow, the ranks of appliances in the style of "ARM+Linux = cool, small, energy-saving device" are surely growing fast... which can only be a good thing, from a consumer (and Linux-advocate) standpoint...

    My guess would be that we will see similar reduced-feature-legacy strategies more often in the future. As graphical drivers get even more complex, and the graphical stack becomes an even faster...
