    To my knowledge, there have been at least two attempts to port FF to Qt, and both failed. Don't bet on any results this decade.



    Qt is indeed a bit heavyweight if all you need is a XUL backend....

    These benchmarks measure throughput, but not responsiveness under load. Someone only interested in throughput will find the benchmark results helpful. If responsiveness is required, more research...

    about good old rm -rf / :

    The protection is not about the idiot user who would run it (you want it, you get it!), nor about the fact that the command couldn't complete once parts of your system...

    I'm sure that's just a coincidence and not clickbait. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, I've managed to break both gentoo (portage) and ubuntu (apt-get) by entering commands that seemed reasonable and safe at...

    Yeah. For someone who's capable of setting VIDEO_CARDS="r600", this change means that my driver is now 7 MB instead of 6 MB because it supports cards I don't have. I don't care about 1 MB on my hard...

    It's a big thing precisely for a large company like NVidia, where a release is more work than commiting a fix, tagging it and uploading a tarball - all that pesky QA gets in the way. That being said,...

    Is there a plugin to block unrelated mid-sentence rants about plugins I might be using?

    Ad blocking is not about depriving someone of their income. It's about protecting my privacy. If your...

    Every single item in that feature list is available in mpv or vlc as well. Why exactly should I pick this?

    I like mpv because it has very fast seek times. I've never seen a gstreamer based player...

    With a lowpower-mainboard without a dedicated GPU, I have no doubt that you didn't run into any thermal constraints. Would be more interesting to see what happens when the 450W power supply is maxed...

    They needed an input device that could replace a mouse/keyboard combination. The touchpads were meant to do exactly that.

    Turns out they also need an input device that can replace a gamepad. So...

    or maybe you just need a good non-tiled window manager.

    With my setup:

    Windows-Key + left click moves windows, Windows-Key + right click resizes. No hunting for window titles or borders....

    Two things missing from the review: glossy or matte?
    Considering the small frame, it it a good choice for multi-monitor setups, or would that obstruct important buttons or something?

    thanks a lot for that. I copied gentoo's git-ebuild (from x11 overlay), targeted it at your git, compiled, and voila! I can finally use urxvt again without it hogging all the CPU or dropping to 1...

    A silent hang during boot, before initializing the proper gfx drivers? I had that once, turned out a piece of firmware was missing (the new kernel required the UVD files, which I hadn't had installed...

    :eek: so radeonSI on debian is completely unaccelerated? (if 2d uses shadow buffer instead of glamor, 3d acceleration and uvd don't work. All you have is PM and modesetting.)

    Maybe. While the new hardware would be a bit faster (12-45% depending on the metric), the radeonsi driver is less optimized than r600. They're also different drivers with different strengths and...
