    Though we REALLY don't need yet-another-package-manager, I don't think it really matter that Canonical is doing this as long as Ubuntu retains some .deb support by default. If they don't allow deb...

    Hmm.... makes me wonder if this means the R9 300 series will be released soon...

    The DWA-160 is another super cheap n compatible USB wifi adapter that, to my knowledge, is FOSS compatible. It works out-of-the-box in linux. If you open up the casing, I think there's a place for...

    This is a great idea - it's a good way to convince more developers to contribute.
  6. And mechanical hard drives don't? Besides, it's...

    And mechanical hard drives don't? Besides, it's still unbiased test, because neither the filesystem nor the computer itself are controlling the optimizations - only the drive's controller is doing...
  7. That's exactly why I suggested it be included -...

    That's exactly why I suggested it be included - FAT32 is so basic that it shows nothing but raw I/O performance. It has no optimizations, it has no special features, and it is unbiased. That makes...
  8. I think including FAT32 would be a good "control"...

    I think including FAT32 would be a good "control" filesystem for these tests. It's very basic, so it is good at showing the raw performance of a drive. In other words, any tests that perform better...

    As I said in my post, Xephyr doesn't have full hardware acceleration. Xephyr is really only good as a sandbox for another login - otherwise, it's overall a pretty lacking program. You CAN get 3D...

    Multiseat, when done properly, has a lot of benefits over a VM. The main benefits are:
    * Immensely less disk consumption
    * Immensely less RAM consumption
    * Everything runs at bare-metal
    * Full...

    Unfortunately, it can't really be an extension. It's good for people who are too dumb or lazy to know how to file a bug report, and Firefox is a browser for the general public. That being said, if...
  12. Martin isn't an idiot. Maybe a little...

    Martin isn't an idiot. Maybe a little over-ambitious at times, but since so much of KDE is his doing, he has a much stronger idea of how a desktop environment works (and should work) than the...

    Hmm this was a pretty quick release compared to 36. Either way - I'm glad MSE is getting a little more completed. It still has a ways to go but it's getting better.
  14. I'm not aware of LFE being a commercial name......

    I'm not aware of LFE being a commercial name... whether it is or isn't, almost all computer sound cards that support 5.1 or 7.1 audio have a LFE/center jack - usually the orange one, IIRC.

    Also,...
  15. I'd say "the old carpet would help reduce noise"...

    I'd say "the old carpet would help reduce noise" but apparently there isn't much noise to begin with. Good to get rid of carpet for a server room anyway - adds unnecessary static and traps dust. ...

    For anything not too VRAM intensive, the 980Ti will be even faster, and cost less.

    I think nvidia learned their lesson this time around with the Titan X. The original Titan was probably one of...

    you don't need to spend twice as much as a normal PC to do that either. The point is, a lot of these tests aren't just a 5% performance difference. In some of these tests, its over a 50%...

    I think this is located in his basement, so, it's probably sufficiently cool during the summer.

    Pretty sure he gets to keep it. They've sent him some pretty pricey things in the past that he got to keep, and Michael sure as hell will put more benchmark use to it than most review websites. ...

    Very nice. You should edit the picture with before and after pictures - I'm not sure everyone knows how much work went into this.
