    Tablets with Windows preinstalled are in the overpriced category by default due to the M$ tax.

    This makes me wonder what difference would it make to radeonsi users if they switch from the dedicated X.org driver to the generic one. Would the 3D driver use features like tiling that are controled...
  4. I don't claim this is true for any application,...

    I don't claim this is true for any application, but at least the one I develop uses about 30% extra memory on 64bits vs 32bits.

    Do the following operations: create directory A. Notice its time stamp.
    Now inside it create directory B. Notice that the timestamp of A changed and is now the same as the one of B.
    Also inside...

    Not really, the FreeBSD ports are tied to FreeBSD. So they needed to be "ported" or "reinvented" to Linux. On the other hand:

    This is basicaly reinventing Gentoo Prefix with a hardcoded ACCEPT_LICENSE="-* @FSF-APPROVED".
  9. Have a look at L4Linux...

    Have a look at L4Linux. In that case can you still consider Linux a kernel? Since the drivers have to be modified to not access the hardware directly but use the L4 api to do so I would say no. It's...
  10. Maybe you don't understand what protected mode...

    Maybe you don't understand what protected mode is. Like you said, whatever# runs in unprotected mode (aka userspace) while the C++ part runs in protected mode (aka kernelspace).
  11. From the link you posted: So there is a...

    From the link you posted:

    So there is a microkernel written in C++ and the whatever# part is strictly userspace. And linux can do that as well to some extent. You can implement a filesystem in...

    And they would also allow cooperative multitasking, all that preemtiveness adds way to much overhead!!!

    Do you have any ideea what you are talking about?

    If Windows 10 will come in late 2015 them probably the first to achieve "true convergence" will be KDE. With KDE SC 4 it wasn't easy to switch between regular Plasma and Plasma Active, but with...

    You don't need to be root to write in shared directories. It's enough for that dir to be writable by a group the user is part of. Gentoo uses the group "games" for maintaining a global hiscore board....

    It's more like "X.Org was compiled with XWayland disabled because Ubuntu doesn't support it". They have Mir, remember? If you were talking about other distros then it depends on the distro as well.
  16. The original TAINTED warning is not for the user,...

    The original TAINTED warning is not for the user, they should be aware of what binary blob kernel modules they have, that warning is for the developers investigating crashes reported by such users....

    So you like the Witcher 2 port better because it doesn't have a DirectX 11 renderer and it looks as shitty on Windows as it does on Linux? I don't see the merit here.

    What part of "pure luck" is so hard for you to grasp? Unless Microsoft stated in their Windos XP EULA (which is the closest to a contract you have with them) that any driver written for that version...

    What are you talking about? The latest driver for Windows was released in 2011, if it works on Windows 8 or newer it's pure luck, just like it would be with any of the external drivers for Linux....

    Since last year the default provider for virtual/ffmpeg in Gentoo has been changed to libav.

    Not sure why they did it but, like others have said before, Gentoo allows you to choose which one you...
