    Personally, I don't have Steam because my portable has some Intel 965-class chip, and desktop has like a Geforce 6600. Not too much gaming to be had from those :rolleyes:

    Indeed. These arguments people make about not using Python because 3.x is incompatible with 2.x... well, by this same argument, don't use gcc, g++, Java, .Net, Visual BASIC or Visual C, any modern...

    Re: mark45. You don't get to decide what programs are important or not. It's not a matter of, oh, there's one programming language so Linux doesn't need more; they already have an editor, so no...

    Isn't that a bit academic? There are not Win32 for ARM applications being developed, since 1) They can't get into MS's store and 2) They may not even be able to be installed onto a WinRT tablet...

    First, what *is* OpenCL going to be used for in LibreOffice? It just doesn't do all that much heavy number crunching as far as I know. Not that I'm against it, I'm just curious.

    I don't think it's idiotic or retarded to not know that KDE is now considered to be composed of three independent components. I mean, I have an up to date KDE desktop on gentoo, and still had no...

    In case anyone wondered "Why?", the Debian team reports substantial performance improvements by running armhf (ARM with "hard float" support, requiring ARMv7 with NEON or newer) compared to running...

    I would assume between 2.6.33 incorrectly used some ARM6 or ARM7 instruction or FP or something, and the 3.9 will still correctly avoid those instructions when built for FPUless ARM.

    You don't know that for sure -- unless you use a low -O option, and possibly -g, gcc doesn't worry about debuggers. And LTO (link time optimization) is not real commonly used yet, but with this used...

    One such myth is that a rolling release model equals instability. This is totally BS for anyone who has used a rolling release distro in the past. It makes me lose my hope for humanity each time...

    I don't know what to say. Personally, I would favor *for now* keeping compiz, as it is functional while Wayland/Mir are essentially vaporware. (I know Wayland exists, but it's like "Oh, here it is...

    I'm with Panix on this one -- I don't hate on Intel, their video chips are not as quick as ATIs or NVidias, but they don't suck up near the power either. I don't want a 100 watt, 50 watt, or 20...
