    This will be great. If it works.

    Based on history though, vendors will manage to find every way to interpret the specification except the correct one. It will almost sort of work for Windows but...

    GNU C++ requires linking to the same version or newer of libstdc++. Which means that if you build software with a newer compiler, you require all of your users to install a newer libstdc++ too. This...

    A new reliable stream protocol has the same problem IPv6 is having. Getting people to support it.

    It would be like the bad old days when you needed to install Trumpet Winsock in order to use the...
  4. Not sure about screen-casting (I thought the...

    Not sure about screen-casting (I thought the compositor did that if it wanted to?) but timing is done by the Presentation API.

    Phoronix even covered it at...

    OK, so you can see why I am confused by what you say. First you want only the basic drivers in the kernel, and the sound system in user space.

    What you seem to be missing here is that PulseAudio...

    Are you sure that you know what ALSA does? From what you wrote here, I don't think that you understand it...

    I am a big PostgreSQL fan. All of that can be done in PostgreSQL 9.2+ with far more reliability. It used to be faster too, but I haven't run any tests against the new version of Mongo.
  8. REAL databases like PostgreSQL are better than...

    REAL databases like PostgreSQL are better than these NoSQL databases any day. The only thing that they don't do is sharding and horizontal scaling.

    And if you want to treat a SQL database as a key...

    In that case they should also be safe, because software in the 80s wasn't using DNS. Instead of using DNS they'd be using an /etc/hosts file containing every IP on the entire Internet. It used to be...

    I agree. And that Jalopnik site? I poked around it with the Firefox dev tools. Did you know it sends off a background Javascript ping as the mouse moves over elements of the page? Kind of creepy. I...

    I am pretty sure that this depends on your version of fdisk. I had thought the Fedora and RHEL versions had been modified to support GPT. I would have to check.
  12. The server version of Windows 2000 was called...

    The server version of Windows 2000 was called Windows 2000 Server. So, by process of elimination Windows 2000 was the consumer version. The upgrade was priced at about $150 if I remember it right. I...
  13. Only people with single-core systems or not...

    Only people with single-core systems or not enough RAM slowed down in Vista. My Athlon X2 sped up and was faster than XP or XP 64-bit in most games.

    There were, technically, ugly hack programs you...

    Hehe. Redhat's RPM packaging tool had similar problems with RPM_BUILD_ROOT. A ton of packaging scripts would start off by doing rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT. And SOME of them put a slash on the end to make...

    Better not run Linux then. Or any Unix. They're all huge code bases written in C.
  16. From this I suspect you're one of those people...

    From this I suspect you're one of those people who remove PulseAudio without even trying it. Or possibly you have some exotic 24 channel sound card (RME Hammerfall?) that works great with JACK but...

    Intel's magic uncore doesn't handle the GPU? That seems like quite an oversight and something they should fix. The GPU absolutely adds to the power draw and heat output, and affects how far turbo can...

    The only downside I see for extra wide screens is a software problem. Full-screen apps work well on dual monitor setups but break when run on one huge display. It would be nice if there was a way to...

    You should look at the definition of "freestanding" C++. That's designed to run on bare metal CPU. Which means that the programmer has to provide ALL of the library support. In freestanding mode...

    You might be writing a tool in Ruby or Objective-C. I don't know.

    I have in the past hit annoying problems with tools that write code, and having to go into the code to fix things, by hand,...
