    I don't know about "not important at all". If it gets wide enough adoption, it could turn out to be like /proc - perhaps not something you think about every day, but one more useful tool (that some...

    Keep in mind that emacs didn't start as a UNIX tool, but comes from a very different tradition - it's a survivor from the LISP machines. Those gave you a LISP shell, where everything available was...

    I guess the best-case is that it grows up to be so good and so well-supported that it can take over as the default build-from-source tool in all distros. I don't really see that happening, though -...

    It's kind of unfair to say they "finally support bookmarks", though. Opera 15+ has always had ways to store an URL for later, the only new thing is that they've added a bookmarks manager with nested...

    Firefox uses its own Gecko engine. It's the only large browser using it, though it's also in a bunch of smaller products. (Siblings like iceweasel, weirder browsers like Wine's replacement for IE,...

    Uhm, did you accidentally post the same table twice? It seems unlikely that they'd be identical to two decimals.

    And please stop quoting him - having him no my ignore list doesn't help as much when people quote everything he writes anyway.

    I've been playing with it (on windows), and yes, it is quite entertaining. Sure, it's not entirely balanced, but you'll see a lot of weird things moving around, the damage mechanics lead to some...
  9. Sensible

    That sounds like a good idea. C++11 and C++14 seems to be mostly about conveniences and readability, so sensibly used that should make their code a tad easier to work with. No miracles (it's an...

    They might in the future, though. Notice how both AMD and intel are integrating increasingly useful 3D cores on their CPUs, and how these integrated GPUs have rather fast interconnects and a (so far...

    If the API available to it is suitably expanded, I imagine you could patch certain types of annoyances quite easily? ("This wifi card is known to freeze; but if you load this lua script that polls it...

    Nice - now that their cleanup projects are beginning to solidify, I wonder if they'll finally meet their goal of scaling better than FreeBSD?

    Lovely; that appears to fix the last of the large outstanding issues with clang. (Well, apart from support for older/rarer platforms, but that's nowhere near as pressing.)

    Also, it should make the...

    Looking at it: Not even that, it means "it's in the base system source and there is infrastructure to build and install it". It defaults to not being built, for now.

    Also, the epoll support isn't...

    Technically, it just means "it will be compiled by default when building the base system". Linux is a bit different, in that there isn't really a base system ... it's vaguely like if debian decided...

    How about normalizing it so the fastest (or slowest, or alphabetically first, or whatever) is at 1, and the others shows how much faster/slower they are (defined e.g. as "how many times could they do...

    I do wonder what a separate intel GPU freed from the space and heat concerns of a CPU die could do. (Compete with a three year old mid-range nvidia card, I guess - but with much nicer drivers.)

    Which is a real shame, since it absolutely screams with potential - it's visually great, the controls are arcadey but decent, the UI is simple and usable, the trade + fight Elite-style gameplay is...
