    1) Scaling is an awful solution. It's a temporary stopgap, but won't be needed in the long term.
    2) the screen in front of me is a high low resolution one (ie, not HiDPI, but fonts are tiny) and is...
  3. Not your coworkers, but anybody wandering in the...

    Not your coworkers, but anybody wandering in the building during lunchtime, or after hours? Having a secure screen lock is the a very very basic requirement for corporate information security.
    Do...
  4. Well, wayland clients will all implement the...

    Well, wayland clients will all implement the protocol, so every toolkit does it, plenty of duplication there already.
    Then, every compositor is expected to implement the protocol themselves as well,...
  5. I don't really get how it could, given that...

    I don't really get how it could, given that wayland is a protocol. It cannot be sucked up.
    That's just like hoping systemd doesn't suck in http. Systemd can include an http client, or an http server...

    We are speaking of time between releases and not total support time.
    From 95, 3Y to 98, 2Y to ME, 135Y to XP, 6Y to vista, 2.5Y to W7, 3Y to W8, 2Y to W10.
    So, yeah, 2 to 3 years between releases...

    Logind will probably be required by both until a decent user session management alternative is available.
    It is actually the key issue for non systemd systems in my opinion, for desktop users.
  8. Not really. Competition of implementations is...

    Not really. Competition of implementations is useful (KDE, Gnome, Unity) because they can evolve, but competition among protocols doesn't really help that as they are stable by design. For protocols,...
  9. This sounds to me as "systemd has so many...

    This sounds to me as "systemd has so many important features that nothing else comes close".
    It's not like they removed features from much else (it can be argued that projects they merged with or...

    The number of linux legacy applications compared to the number of piss poor applications in the average phone store suggests that non-phone aware apps would not really pollute anything more than it...

    What's your point?
    I was responding to jack_lesser, who complained "BSD allows justification for including binary blobs and firmware". I said "the linux kernel allows firmware and blobs" too, which...

    Except most code, open or closed, is written by paid developers, and guess what, during my paid developer time, I'll never contribute back to a GPL project because we would rather rewrite it than use...
  13. Because it's not either? You are misrepresenting...

    Because it's not either? You are misrepresenting my point. I am not telling BSD is free. I am telling GPL is not.


    They shouldn't. People who want to differentiate use copyleft and permissive,...

    "If you have the freedom to do something but you actually haven't it, then it's not freedom"
    Yup
    Indeed.
    Your point? :)
    (but yes, if you can use some code, but when you do, you have to do...

    Nobody pretends to call CC licensed content "free content" (or if they do, same bullshit). It's called CC licensed content.
    Similarly, GPL licensed software is not free software, neither as in beer...

    That doesn't make sense.
    There are different levels of CC licenses, like "public domain", "attribution" and "non commercial".
    Attribution is more restrictive than public domain, and non commercial...
  17. Comparing licenses and political systems is...

    Comparing licenses and political systems is completely useless.
    Development and governance in permissively licensed projects is no more anarchic than in closed or GPL licensed ones.
    There are...
  18. You cannot "restrict everyone else's freedom to...

    You cannot "restrict everyone else's freedom to use it in the future". That's not possible, neither in public domain, nor permissive, nor copyleft code. You cannot unlicense someone else code...

    My work setup is 3360x1050 (dual screen), and I find it very comfortable for coding and writing docs (it's a quite standard work setup I'd say). Not having the central bezel would be even better...

    This in incorrect, G-Sync is not Adaptive V-Sync.

    It's hard to find if they are even partially compatible (ie, if you buy a monitor with Adaptive V-Sync but not G-Sync, will a NVidia GPU at least...
