    Fascinating. I mean, I don't use "minimize" and never bothered to enable it, so I honestly don't know whether GNOME has problems with minimizing games, but one of the reasons I swapped from Unity to...

    It's bizarre that you brought up Nazism, considering they were fascist and also favored the collective (specifically the national collective; hence ``national socialism'') over the individual. This...

    You've neglected to prove your thesis. That is an extremely broad argument -- that *NO* implementation of DRM can prevent *ANY* piracy -- and you have provided a single example of an exceptionally...

    But the same comparison with OS X finds 3.47% usage share on Steam, in contrast to the common statistic of 6-8%. Clearly, the PC gaming submarket is not a representative sample of the overall PC OS...

    This seems significantly disjoint with my observations. Most Linux users I know don't care at ALL about the GPL or free (as in free speech) software; they only care that Linux is free (as in free...

    Frankly, it confuses me that RMS simultaneously wants all Linux to be renamed GNU/Linux and disowns Linux distros which permit proprietary software. The distros which share values with GNU already,...

    I would propose that this suggests that Mint as a whole ought to be based directly on Debian, or at least that LMDE ought to be the primary focus of their project. If Canonical's rampant,...

    Actually, I've heard that's not accurate. It's quite true that Linux relies upon GNU for some very important utilities, but really GNU wrote only a very small percentage of the code in a modern Linux...

    I cringed when "antithetical" was mutated into "anti-ethical".

    Yes, but they are exclusively distributed through Steam because it's the only form of DRM that PC gamers have generally decided is acceptable. If they sell it outside of Steam, they either go...

    I'm glad you're not having issues, but that doesn't mean that nobody else is. See: any Linux user who ever had the misfortune of buying a laptop with an Optimus setup. Also, the tempest in the Steam...

    Lampshade Hanging now, are we? Welcome to the trollective conciousness.

    Explain why you think an Nvidia driver will support both Mir and Wayland. This, I think, is central to the opinion you've taken up; if this were the case, of course, then Wayland and Mir could easily...

    What about supporting Ubuntu, Valve's "favorite version of Linux", when they swap to Mir?

    I have to wonder whether this will set a precedent. Correct me if I'm wrong, but in my understanding, if...
