    Feeling inferior because a 'toy language' has better features than your grandmother's language? Go compiles extremely fast and can be used as a scripting language because, unlike C/C++, it has proper...

    Unlikely considering the header nonsense causes compile times to grow exponentially. Golang is fast enough at compiling that you can actually use it like Python/Bash when you use 'gorun' to execute...

    Considering the syntax is very close to other modern languages like Go and Rust, I doubt it would effect anyone. I personally don't have problems mastering a programming language in a few days. I...

    The homepage for Julia shows actual numbers -- not sure how you missed that. It topples the C implementation in a few benchmarks even if it loses some. If you think their implemetation is not the...

    If you want to claim that it is slower then explain the benchmark results which demonstrate otherwise.

    1) You're really naive. Fortran is faster than C which is faster than C++. Julia makes heavy use of the best of C and Fortran math libraries so it is close to Fortran performance.
    2) That's not the...

    Why even bother with C++ or Python when you have Julia which is much faster/easier than both and is heavily optimized for this kind of task? Julia was created for this type of problem so it doesn't...

    Well darn, was hoping for something more interesting like "Voracious Velociraptor".

    Try using Julia or Golang. Python isn't really needed anymore now that better programming languages are available.

    Why do we need a dead project like mplayer? mpv is vastly superior.

    Sounds like they should just pick up a better language, like Go.

    Why not Rust? The API isn't stable yet, but it will be soon.

    I wonder when they are going to support Opus audio inside MKV containers. XBMC and VLC both suffer from two years of negligence of enabling this support. At least VLC nightly builds have supported it...

    Nope, it's all about Rust and Go now.

    Why do you think they are designing Source 2 engine? I fail to see how porting Steam to Linux, pushing developers to support Linux, creating SteamOS and actually releasing their entire category of...

    Even a cheap quad core AMD APU can reach that -- it's not that demanding.

    That only applies to RadeonSI+ hardware. Radeon HD 6000 and prior practically equal Catalyst's performance. If there is a difference, the difference is closer to 20%.

    Sabayon has shipped with proprietary drivers out of the box since forever.

    Reversing the chessboard, seems like their reason for releasing this graphics driver is that they are still working on a different driver and that this is a stopgap measure to support their new...
