    Almost no-one has any particular use for GL4 on Intel cards under Linux.
    GL3 is fine for big companies' spreadsheets/browsers, or for most games that will actually run acceptably on an IGP. The...

    Well, as a gen4 owner this is a welcome improvement.

    Still forlornly waiting for my GL3 support though... :(

    It's the second-most-popular personal desktop distro after Ubuntu, per Steam's survey, and third after that and openSUSE per Wikipedia usage (ignoring the meaningless-but-favourable distrowatch...

    No, Mint will be on Upstart for at least another year, since it's being based off Ubuntu LTS releases.
    Presumably Mint 18 will be based off Ubuntu 16.04 and hence get systemd then.

    Was there ever any resolution, or at least clarification of the circumstances, regarding the rather bizarre ElementaryOS/SPI dispute earlier this year?

    It seems Mr Drake is still listed as a...

    Within a major version (2 or 3), all spec revisions are backward-compatible with existing versions.
    All code written to run on 3.1 will run perfectly on 3.4 or any future 3.x version.

    Code that...

    They are somewhat less stupid here, in that CodeWeavers do have a separate commercial product and hence a plausible motive to hinder the FOSS one (rather than LENNART IS EVUL!).

    I don't think...

    Nope - this isn't (or at won't be used as) a 3D game engine. :rolleyes:

    It's for integrating 3D content/displays into GUI software, which means integration with surrounding widgets and interface....

    I'm not at all keen on the new search setup, although I can see how it might be useful to others. The many-step approach to changing default engine is useless for searching docs/bugs.

    Luckily, the...

    I don't see how this is claimed to be 'a bit like the Pandora console' - the latter is explicitly designed to function as a mini-laptop rather than a pure gaming device, with a proper QWERTY...

    You run a 400-server cluster, in which you 'adapt things and control them' through the init system often enough that you care, but you can't spell the name (SysVinit) of the init system you...

    Nope, just yet another crazy name.

    It's far less strange than, say, "Erotic Pickled Herring" or "Err Metey! A Heury Beelge-a Ret!"....

    Doesn't look like the ffmpeg return suggestion got anywhere, then. Debian/Ubuntu/Mint get stuck with buggy, poorly-supported libav for another two years. :(

    ext2, as a non-journalling filesystem, is better suited for small removable media (thumbdrives, SD cards etc) than ext3 or ext4. It's quite possibly still the most commonly used fs in that role...

    Isn't dust an issue, with all the 'rear panel' vents/fans/ports facing upwards? :confused:
    For anyone who isn't a hardware reviewer, I can't see how the added bulk and reduced internal space would...

    They're generated from branches by git-send-email in a standard format, and the commits in question can be pulled, examined and fiddled with using whatever review tool you like.

    They're caching per-user (how? why?) in the home directory: "~/.AMD/GLCache".
    I'd have thought a system-wide cache in /var would make more sense, but apparently not. :rolleyes:

    Doesn't this put Linux's OpenGL support on SB ahead of the Windows drivers (which only expose 3.1 IIRC)?
    Is that a first for mainstream consumer hardware? :D

    As a regular KDevelop user (C++, PHP, Python...), this is great news! ;)
    The QtHelp and PHP fixes in particular will be very useful.

    Thinkpad HDAPS is even better than these Dell and Toshiba things - the full accelerometer data is accessible by the OS* - and fully supported by Linux .
