  1. Amazing articles covering everything about the Linux graphics stack

    I can't remember seeing either of these articles, but they're both amazing, and very in-depth.

    The newer one is Xplain: Explaining X11 for the rest of us.


    The one that came before that was...

    Anyone use Samba4 or OpenXChange?

    I've been vaguely aware of Samba4 and OpenChange, which is an Exchange-compatible email server product. Has anyone used either of these in a test or production environment?
  5. Looking for opinions on a couple of laptops

    Hi, at my job we're upgrading some of the laptops to newer models, and my boss is okay with giving me one of the older models.
    I've got a choice between two HP models:
    HP Compaq 8510w with a Core 2...

    I'm glad I'm not the only confused by the "sadly no VC-1 hardware encoding". H264 is really all you need for Blu-ray, and if you plan to make an actual Blu-ray, you won't be using the hardware...

    I'm sure they do vet it- which is why it's kind of pointless to try getting a cert if you plan to do malicious things. You still have to provide information, and if you're going to try to convince...

    Theoretically, if you had the driver built and working, you could get ReactOS to sign it.

    So, maybe it won't be as hard as you think. Wine does put out tarballs of all the releases, and since you know it worked with 1.3, I would check 1.4 to see if that release worked. If it does, you've...

    Intel 945gm-friendly games

    Hi, I'm hoping to make a list of the currently available games that can be played on the Intel 945 series graphics chip. (Or if you know an easy way to check what OpenGL level a program needs, that...

    Having helped with Flashrom, there's two big issues with flashing modern machines:
    1. Laptops
    2. Intel's Management Engine

    The Management Engine is the easier of the two (which is only because...

    But you haven't answered the important question: what if the bootloader gets changed, and you don't know because things work exactly the same, except for a small change?

  17. If you want to dual-boot or install over Windows, it is your problem

    So, how do you stop a rootkit that installs a tiny Linux system, enough to boot, change stuff outside of Window's view, and ensures it always is loaded, and undetectable (because if you control the...

    I don't like to say this to people, but you are an idiot. How do you know what a boot virus looks like? You can certainly detect all the current known ones, but how do you defend against future ones...
  19. More like this please!

    This is pretty interesting- any chance of more articles like this?

    I really hope you don't have recent Intel motherboards in any of your computers- otherwise, you very likely have Intel's Management Engine as part of your BIOS/UEFI. It's a very interesting...
