    LibreOffice/OpenOffice is a low quality, but free imitation of Microsoft Office. I use it when I have to view/edit MS Office files, and I'm using a system that didn't come to me with MS Office...

    Two big reasons to NOT use Windows:

    - The Shell. I've experimented with bash shells a lot and PowerShell under Windows and trusty old cmd.exe. None are nearly as good as OS X or Linux. Setting up...

    Microsoft developer tools has been moving more open largely because they've lost ground to competition. They fought open web standards, and fought them hard with everything they had, and pumped up...

    "better" is subjective to opinion and dependent on the task at hand.

    For general purpose system/server/app development, the higher level languages are "better" IMO: On .NET F# > C#. On the JVM,...

    Luke is right on this. The ECMA standard should provide full protection from potential lawsuits. I don't think most developers are really concerned about that however.

    While C# is an ECMA...

    This is generally a bad reason to choose products.

    Your judgement of what works for you is good. Your judgement of a giant corporation's ethics is probably beyond the scope of a traditional...

    You can get much better dev tools, programming languages, IDEs, and web frameworks for free:

    - JVM (Java, Scala, Clojure): All free, amazing IDEs, amazing web frameworks. Much better than .NET....
  8. All the JVM web frameworks have been completely...

    All the JVM web frameworks have been completely free and open source forever and are extremely Linux friendly, even Linux centric.

    I've done full time ASP.NET work for years, and it's main...

    He should have commented on OpenGL ES which supposedly resolves a lot of the legacy issues he refers to.

    No. Subsurface has clear, accurate, up to date instructions on their main website for Linux users. Monodevelop does not. Monodevelop lists a wildly out of date Ubuntu version that suggests they don't...

    I disagree.

    New games still use highly optimized low level code for low level graphics. Old games used non-optimized high level stuff like Lua for higher level game logic. That hasn't changed.

    Consoles were always personal use computers. That really hasn't changed.



    Same with Windows/Linux/Mac workstation PCs. They never even attempted to match the performance of supercomputers. They...

    Maybe you can make a case for covering MonoDevelop, but products like Xamarin Studio that flat out do not support Linux shouldn't be featured on a Linux site. Does Phoronix cover the new version of...

    Xamarin Studio doesn't even support Linux.

    Directly from http://xamarin.com/studio:

    Basically, nothing much... A few upstream packages changes, notably kernel updates. There's more if you are coming from 12.04 but 13.10 users will barely notice any differences.

    I'm running Chrome version 34 on Linux. Flash has been working perfectly. Flash is built into Chrome using the Pepper APIs and does not use NPAPI.

    Is the Phoronix article just completely wrong? Or...
