    Well, I've always called the Windows sticker a warning label. Now it really is, because there's a good chance that the computer won't run anything else.

    Eventually, with x86 PCs, Windows...

    Yeah, and it's a good thing most of them run OK in Wine (PlayOnLinux has a bunch of scripts that will install them in a few clicks as well).

    The biggest issue I see with GoG is that the games they...

    I think you've gone too far. The only reason OS X would be less buggy than Ubuntu is because Apple stops its employees from saying "bug". Also "hot", "crash", "freeze", "glitch",...

    It's not like code quality really matters with Nvidia or Catalyst. What matters to them is hacking it up to run on the latest Ubuntu without crashing it so much that it's plainly obvious the user...

    Their blob is incompetent, it has lots of problems, it creates many unsupportable issues, it exposes the user to security vulnerabilities that Nvidia never fixes. Did I leave anything out? I don't...

    I think that's the real meat of the kernel developer decision to keep Nvidia away from DMA-BUF. Why hand them something else that will be useful for them to harm people with (with their blob being...

    I don't know why you'd move to LXDE.

    I'd buy a real computer before I settled on LXDE. As far as I can tell, LXDE exists mainly to run on computers that were already considered crap around the...

    The fact that most distributions don't come with Yakuake by default, which uses Konsole's Kpart. :)

    -O2 and -O3 can actually produce massive binary output size increases for not much gain over -Os.

    When you compile Mozilla software with -O3, you will get much larger binary size, which actually...

    So they came in second to an aging Enterprise Linux distribution and didn't even use the current version of that... but I'll let that slide because......FreeBSD....and NetBSD.. . ouch.

    Trinity has decayed into a garbage patch of patches from everywhere, hacks, duplications (HAL running next to udev, dcop next to dbus, etc), all kwin 3.x themes were broken a while back, and there's...

    I think the two biggest reasons Nvidia and AMD don't want to open source their drivers or release certain specs (AMD) or anything at all (Nvidia) comes down to not wanting to reveal implementation...

    Nothing in userspace is ever considered a derivative of the kernel. Something that actually becomes part of the kernel is. Nvidia and AMD try to wiggle around this by having some permissively...

    Also, the "taint" warning is there for a good reason. It lets the user know they are running the kernel in a configuration that is totally unsupportable by either the upstream kernel developers or by...

    It means that the kernel developers consider something that uses those symbols to be a derivative work of the kernel.

    Several years ago, there was a troll named Jeff Merkey that wrote proprietary...

    Actually, I was being facetious. I know exactly why people would scream FUD. There's people who think that Apple is a shining beacon of perfection even though a lot of games warn of bad performance...

    Why would they scream FUD? Running games on Ubuntu under Compiz is about the easiest way to drag your framerate down 10% or more. KDE simply mops the floor with Compiz/Unity. Sorry, but I was well...

    It figures that Catalyst has just started to behave right after I decided to go with Nvidia this time. The last two years with Catalyst has been a complete disaster and their open source driver is...
