    I would ordinarily prefer using a lighter, more 'integrated-with-the-DE' browser, but ever since finding the Pentadactyl addon I can't use anything but Firefox anymore. It so radically improves the...

    I think the new design looks great, especially the better use of the blank margins that used to be at the sides. I was initially shocked to see the 'phoronix green' disappear, but the new colour...

    Yeah, that's what I was referring to. I think I recall in particular that 10.04 had some controversial problems that weren't fixed for awhile, but I don't remember exactly what.

    I think it's great that they're willing to get bad press to make sure their product is high quality, unlike a certain other distribution that sticks to their schedule regardless of whether the...

    It's a configuration option to remove screen tearing. From the Arch forums:

    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Intel Graphics"
    Option "SwapbuffersWait"...

  7. New massive advertisement covers article text

    The new Staples Canada advertisements are very wide and cover the left half of articles, making them impossible to read.

    I took a screenshot of it, but I'm not sure how I could display it here.

    Mint has the exact same install process, while Manjaro even has it installed by default.
  9. Fedora

    I would prefer you do benchmarks on Fedora, for several reasons: it is very standardized in that it keeps its software as close to upstream as possible, with little or no modification; it has very...

    Fedora

    I personally recommend Fedora for it being the most cutting edge distro which is (almost always) stable. You keep getting new kernels and graphics stacks while having very little breakage; I've...

    I was referring specifically to D3D, probably should have said that. What my concern is is that, as another poster suggested earlier, developers who might otherwise be inclined to support GNU...

    If DirectX is upheld as the standard graphics API for GNU games instead of OpenGL, then we will become dependant on a technology fully under the control of quite the hostile entity. That is the...
  13. Great, but...

    How long will this last? There's already some newer features or performance improvements that are said to be for IVB/Haswell only, and Sandy is only a couple years old now. When it comes to Nvidia...
  14. Civilization V

    I'd say this patchset is worth it solely for use with Civilization V; I have a feeling that it is the type of game most popular amongst the GNU-using demographic, even though most of our native games...

    As it stands, the gallium intel driver is so far behind the mesa one that even with this patch it would probably be worse. I highly doubt the gallium driver will ever be able to catch up primarily...
  16. Flash to WebM converter

    Registered just to say this: get https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/save-my-youtube-day/?src=ss. It's a Firefox plugin that allows you to watch any Youtube video without any sort of...
