    Heh, not a day goes by without someone loudly proclaiming from the peanut gallery that this programming language or that operating system will be dead/irrelevant in a few years. I doubt this is true...
  2. Why would anyone install a full-blown init system...

    Why would anyone install a full-blown init system on such minimal hardware? Systemd is designed for the needs of anything ranging from server clusters to mobile and IVI, but I doubt you'd be running...

    By definition fanboys != developers. The project's not theirs. Just like Linux is not your project and thus you do not have the authority to represent it. We're just insignificant users with...

    That can be considered a reason to hate the fanboys at most, not the software. Not a good reason, but then again hate rarely has one.



    Heh, right. No Linux user ever trolls or attacks anything....
  5. No, most of us do not consider hating a piece of...

    No, most of us do not consider hating a piece of software as a very sane thing to do. Because most of us are not trolls and/or children.

    Don't be scared, little curaga. The monster won't hurt you. It looks scary but it's really just here to help us. (And it's actually just a bunch of nice little pieces of sotfware wearing a big...

    I'm not sure if you're rolling with the joke or just forgot to check the date... :/ Must be the former as this is one of the most obvious so far.

    As opposed to the almost universally ugly and blocky styling of business laptops? ;) I've been quite happy with our higher-end business HPs and Dells over the years, but I sure wouldn't mind if they...
  9. I'm with you. Any professional web developer...

    I'm with you. Any professional web developer would be out on their asses before you could say "IE blows" if they only tested on Chrome. They might develop on Chrome but they can't get away with not...

    They did decide to switch, but I'm pretty sure that was always supposed to be only until the whole Gnome 3/systemd thing got resolved. Gnome packaging in Debian became problematic for a while due to...

    Well I certainly can. For one, it's an excellent DE. :) All of the doom-and-gloom about new-fangled features and plumbing it might not support in the future isn't really a good reason to switch away...

    Did Canonical actually commit to a stable API at some point? I remember them stating that there are no guarantees and that they have no (financial, I guess) interest in supporting anything but Unity....

    DX will never be as low level as mantle if it wants to effectively and sanely support a more diverse set of hardware. Like curaga said, we know what happened to glide. It was designed for a specific...

    Ah, didn't realize you consider installing and using a dedicated compositor an "option" you can just set, and that might be required depending on your window manager. Never mind then, just trying to...

    Nah, his camera is fine, but photography isn't easy.

    Use a (OpenGL based) compositor and your tearing disappears, as long as you've enabled vsync in the NVIDIA settings. Personally I run compton with Xfce to get a tearfree experience.

    Please don't throw around numbers like you've measured them, as you obviously haven't. And of course the boot time is real. Why would you think starting a gui would take five seconds on a system that...

    Google says it might have something to do with American college boys throwing balls at hoops or with rabbit mating seasons. In either case completely irrelevant for the industry and indeed most of...

    I've only ever seen the term 2.5D in reference to games that mix 2D and 3D graphics, like many point and click adventures and some jrpgs do. Mostly prerendered backgrounds with 3D characters. But I...
