    Actually, this post from Michael only supports my very favorable experiences with TP-LINK. They are frowned upon by many just because they are Chinese and cheap, but I find again and again that they...

    I will add: Whether a project uses C or C++ has nothing to do with being modern. Commercial embedded solutions are driven by completely different factors than being object-oriented. They are driven...

    Working in that field, I can tell you it is still very much true. Note I am not saying embedded projects cannot use C++ in general. What I am saying is that there are a lot that cannot, probably even...

    Beside phone and tablets, there are a lot more commercial embedded projects that need a GUI, and on many of these, using C++ is a serious no-go. GTK has a pure C interface and is thus not just the...

    I have 8gigs and that's more than enough for complicated 1080p video processing, and if I am only working with 720p material then I can start up a virtual machine to that in parallel. Or up to 2...

    Good to see that someone's not only copying work and adding miniscule enhancements to existing video compression methods, but is experimenting with new fundamentals. Daala has the potential to become...

    Reading the change log, sound files created with FLAC 1.3 will not "sound better" in any way compared to older versions. First, FLAC is already lossless, so it cannot be made to sound better. At best...

    Ahh, since some of you are so caught up in the grammar, I'll add my own two cents to the topic (even if off-topic, sorry).



    That, when left alone, is false. Both having and not having a comma...

    It is quite obvious it is only for a single axis, not for the total number of pixels. To see this, consider that the old counter was only 15bits long, so it could count 32768 pixels at most. That...

    Okay, I admit that a "good" performance is relative to the intended use and limited by the many features it has to support, so I'll drop that point.


    However, as far as stability goes, I have...

    Aren't the folks at Btrfs getting a bit distracted? I mean, Btrfs doesn't even perform well on typical hardware and classic workloads performance-wise, hell it's not even stable right now... and yet...

    Everybody seems to forget that when people look for something "lightweight", their true goal is rarely to "minimize CPU usage" or to "minimize memory usage". CPU and mem usage are just indirect...

    Very interesting.

    But as a future reference, Michael, there isn't much point in doing such tests on ffmpeg, since ffmpeg's critical code paths are mostly hand-tuned assembly. So it is no wonder...

    The cons:
    1. This demo is using Mir for composition. Don't mix that up with being the display server.
    2. If I were to write a compositor (or display server) that can handle client applications, the...

    It is well known that compositing hurts framerates in games. For DEs where compositing can be toggled on/off, both options should be tested to get a fuller picture.
