    Ok, besides the parity to Windows, I think the big news is that we finally see some improvements in Haswell graphics (after several months of flat performance, really good, but no changes with kernel...

    I bought a couple Amazon (Kindle Fire) tablets in the past. Big mistake. They run Android, but Amazon went out of their way to make the Fire a closed platform. You can't install Google Play, you...

    The release is way too close to include new packages, but OTOH, these are all...

    I think you are missing the point, the problem is that flashing from an OS is riskier, not that it is is harder.

    I'll have to agree as well. Just let me download the image, put it on a usb disk, and let me flash from the BIOS, nice and simple, why would you need a GUI or an OS running for this? The only variant...

    Ha, they got all of the overhead, and none of the benefits! But this is early code.

    Seriously, today we have the Hurd which sounds great from a design standpoint great but has made no progress,...

    These integrated GPU's are awesome, and you can play games, including 3D, assuming you are ok playing at lower resolutions and losing some detail. They are definitely not a gamer's dream, but my kids...
  8. Python?

    Michael, I actually always wondered, not why you use a scripting language, but rather why it wasn't Python. The one benefit of PHP, that I see now, is the use of a browser-centric GUI.

    I just hope the Landlord isn't reading this :)

    I am looking just for a solution like this for my Living room, but I really don't want to have cables hanging down. So, the cost of the mount will be...

    Thank you, and thanks to DrYak as well. I did take a quick look at the RedHat blog before posting and it sounded like bad parsing. And I totally agree that you can be sloppy in any language. But...

    I thought the idea was to post in the AMD Survey. Here is what I had to say.
  12. What's with all the 'bash-ing"

    So, here goes a more technical question. Would it have helped in this situation to have BASH written on a higher level language, such as go, rust, or some of the 'better' alternatives to C? I have...

    Yeah, I agree, Canonical has found a nice balance. They ship recent software, but they avoid bleeding edge. They decided to stick to a cycle and release when planned, not 'when ready', which is how...

    Yeah, I did that for a few years, but it was kind of annoying, at least to me: I needed to uninstall most of KDEPIM, make sure that I don't accidentally uninstall KDE, and then I also have, every now...

    I am not sure about GNOME as a default, vs XFCE, since I don't use either (I used GNOME in 2000-2004 or so). I tend to like software written with Qt, it just seems nice to use, modern and consistent....

    Congrats!

    Congrats Michael and Fatima on the new family nest. I live in the SF Bay Area. Boy, do I know what you mean by high taxes. Enjoy your new life!

    Yeah, but I actually worry more about their interest in SUSE. Do they really care? I hope so, but the Reuters article doesn't even mention Linux or SUSE!

    Great point, my i5-4670k works like that on turbo as well, by default. This is done for thermal reasons, to keep overall power under control. In that sense, it's not a bad idea to test the way...
