  1. Hey... don't get me wrong - I am not an Apple...

    Hey... don't get me wrong - I am not an Apple fanboi lost on the wrong website or anything... If there is high quality hardware - and a cool brand would be a nice touch - from a proper Linux...
  2. Hmm.... We can't use S3tc compression or integer...

    Hmm.... We can't use S3tc compression or integer textures because of legal fears, but we are ok with a Microsoft API implementation?

    Not expecting this to be merged. In any case - DX...
  3. Ah I see, yes - Apple's hardware is not gonna be...

    Ah I see, yes - Apple's hardware is not gonna be for you. Apple definitely isn't an OpenSource company. It's more: "my enemy's enemy turns out to be Apple". That's not necessarily "friend" because...
  4. Ok - not sure if I'd blame Apple directly for...

    Ok - not sure if I'd blame Apple directly for Broadcom's or NVidia's Linux support, but my Macbook wireless just works without additional blobs. I presume that your issue would also affect Dells or...
  5. No I'm not going to read yet another anti-Apple...

    No I'm not going to read yet another anti-Apple troll thread, but I will thank MatthewG for his work on Macs. To be clear, my MacBook was that first laptop that I have bought where *everything*...
  6. Yawn... an anti-Apple troll, never seen one of...

    Yawn... an anti-Apple troll, never seen one of those before on the Internet. You *really* want us to pay the Microsoft tax, don't you? Next you're going to tell me how I could have saved $200 by...
  7. Lolz... I like Open Source, but I'm not that...

    Lolz... I like Open Source, but I'm not that crazy! Maybe one day we'll have completely open source hardware too, but until then I'm happy to consider firmware "an integral part of the hardware...
  8. Yawn... This old flame-fest. Am I allowed to...

    Yawn... This old flame-fest. Am I allowed to post my stupid, irrelevant, one-off experience too? Once I think that maybe the NVidia BLOB corrupted my harddisk. I have switched that computer to...
  9. Actually, I think that MESA is now already "fully...

    Actually, I think that MESA is now already "fully caught up" in so far as it supports pretty much everything that the Intel IRIS chipset does (OpenGL 4.0/4.2 depending on which one you buy). Note...
  10. Not sure if I believe you there! If you do...

    Not sure if I believe you there!

    If you do want me to stand up for OpenGL (even in its current form): it is *still* the only...

    - cross-platform (ahem... Metal)
    - cross-vendor (ahem.....

    Workman and his/her tools

    Yawn... Whinging about stuff that other people have done is easy. We all know where Khronos is, so you can go there and help them work on OpenGL 5.0. If you want them to copy ideas from Mantle or...

    Hmm.. OpenBSD ripping on other projects?

    I don't think that it is on for OpenBSD people to start berating OpenSSL as a group. It's not like OpenBSD has never, ever, ever, had a bug or security problem (and Heart Bleed is "just" information...
  13. Why do anything?

    I think the answer to your question is pretty much: "because people want the absolute best graphics possible". You don't have to use a GPU, just like you don't have to use the CPU. You get the best...
  14. So how open is Mantle?

    I have concerns about how open AMD is willing to be on Mantle. There is no value in one company turning up with a solution and saying "everyone use this now". Are they going to let NVidia use it? ...
  15. A little late, maybe?

    This would have been vaguely interesting five years ago, but frankly if you look at GL3.txt the Intel guys are a fair chunk of the way to OpenGL 4.2 already. Is this additional Catalyst work really...
  16. At least a decision has been made - that is...

    At least a decision has been made - that is usually the important thing. Both Upstart and SystemD would technically have worked as an init system.

    To be fair as a basis for a server distribution,...
  17. Snap and then some. I see exactly this too with...

    Snap and then some. I see exactly this too with no extensions.
  18. Dunno - nothing that seems to affect Chrome,...

    Dunno - nothing that seems to affect Chrome, anyway.
  19. Sadly this is my experience too. For me,...

    Sadly this is my experience too. For me, performance took a major hit ages ago when they (or at last at the same time as) introduced MySql to store browser history and bookmarks. Since then it is...

    I have also heard bad things...

    The rumours are that Google don't let you stream directly to the device (which makes it a bit useless). They are also building an AppStore or something, although I personally don't know the details....
