    Interesting, so another distro is finally going to try this. At the very least, as-needed installation of KDE packages is something we've had in Gentoo since... well, KDE 3.5 is the earliest I...

    So let me get this straight.... His proposed solution to this is YET ANOTHER COMPLEX LOW-LEVEL DAEMON DEPENDING ON HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF LINES OF CODE!?

    Interesting; this dovetails nicely with the rumours that AMD was looking to buy MIPS outright. Considering MIPS' current market cap is at about $350 million (up from $275-ish in early April), I...

    D1 has been around for a long time, yeah, but D2 is only just getting to a place we can, if we squint, call stable. The community has really grown in the last year or so, and it isn't showing signs...

    It's an interesting architeture, and I know at least a couple people who are pretty stoked about it. I'm not sure how I feel about x86 living on even still, but Intel somehow has made it work.

    Or maybe we can stop wasting time on inventing solutions to fake problems. Until someone can clarify what we gain from this, and how it radically overshadows what we lose, this is just wasted...

    Odd comparison. Despite the number of packages, you could still install KDE something like five times in the disk space required by the basic Vista/7 install. More, if you remove the additions in...

    The selfsame id that stated flat out that there wouldn't be a Linux client for Rage? Carmack invests most of his time in HMD development and rocketry these days if his Twitter feed is any indication.
