    I agree. $200k is totally worth a port. I doubt the cost of the port will exceed half of this amount.
  2. I won't speak on behalf of kaprikawn, but in my...

    I won't speak on behalf of kaprikawn, but in my case I use radeon rather than Catalyst simply because radeon is more stable despite being lower in OpenGL version. My experience with Catalyst on a...

    The blog post may be clean, but it's still hosted at pornhub. No thanks, I'm not clicking that link at work.

    I think it has little to do with whether the code is written in C or Assembly. It's about how the code is designed and how the design is fine tuned. Yes, hand writing things in Assembly results in...

    What I am hoping for is a version for the general public that we can recommend to people instead of Ubuntu. Fedora overall feels more solid than Ubuntu now but there are still certain aspects that...

    What you are saying would be true if Canonical:
    * actually brought some real advantage with Mir, or
    * made Mir follow the standard, or
    * add a wayland-mir translation layer to enable wayland apps...

    Fedora.Next should include a desktop version targetted at end users. I think Fedora is good and stable enough to be used by end users, not just developers.

    Glad to see all those companies involved. The last thing we need is competition at an API level. I am quite surprised Apple is in the list. I guess they realize if their OS doesn't support a standard...

    If it's not on Steam, I don't bother with the game. Steam gives me the convenience of a one click installation without touching my system directories.

    Sure, I agree. But nVidia can also afford to hire a couple of guys to work on Nouveau or simply release the source code for their binary driver, or at least hire a couple of guys to write proper...

    What I like about the Phoronix forums is that you often get the actual developers to reply :) Thanks for the update.
  12. That's great support from nVidia, but sorry,...

    That's great support from nVidia, but sorry, Intel is still better at supporting its customers because it gives the source code to the community. I think the reason why Intel's GPU support isn't...

    Great news. I am glad The Witcher's team is not ignoring performance issues. My machine is still slow for such a game, but I guess I will be buying it once I get a true gaming machine.
  14. I don't think that's the reason. Companies...

    I don't think that's the reason. Companies usually are more attracted to an improved version of a popular API than an all new API (if the improvement brings it on par with what the new API would...

    Thanks for the great explanation. Wow, this is what happens when you think more about the past (backwards compatibility) than the present and the future (proper code design).
  16. I am guessing once the new API is released a lot...

    I am guessing once the new API is released a lot of the open source developers will just switch over, making the progress much slower at the open source OGL.
  17. Reading about Direct State Access makes me wonder...

    Reading about Direct State Access makes me wonder why on earth was such thing not implemented in OpenGL 1? Why the hell was the non-DSA functions implemented in the first place?
  18. I hope this time around we'll only have open...

    I hope this time around we'll only have open source implementation and no binary BS.
  19. I am guessing (and hoping) that SteamOS will...

    I am guessing (and hoping) that SteamOS will change this. One of the reasons Windows games run fine is because it's only one setup developers have to test against. SteamOS will become a reference...

    I think he's talking about stability of games on Linux, not stability of Linux itself.
