    Need I say more?

    So, basically you blame everyone else for making the wrong hardware choice in the first place, then in an even more silly move, of all the choices you had, expect a rather old piece of software to...
  3. VMs, photo/video editing, and yes, compiling...

    VMs, photo/video editing, and yes, compiling packages for Gentoo, use cases where I also like to have a big Ramdisk at hand - 8GB are good, but 16GB are better today already. And as a matter of...

    I was really considering that laptop. However, there are several gripes with this shiny piece of ASUS hardware when you consider the price tag:

    Hard facts
    - CPU TDP: 28W
    This is much too high...

    For someone who is frequently pointing out the amount of work that is producing content for phoronix, while at the same time producing a lot of hot air, I was merely giving advice in how to improve...

    Hardware is a difficult beast; Regressions/problems may only happen (or become visible) on certain chips, or even revisions. That's why UVD works on most, but not on two systems of mine; that's why...
  7. Not anymore. Well, in any case it depends on your...

    Not anymore. Well, in any case it depends on your hardware. But right now, all my AMD systems (each being older than 1yr) run perfect with stable upstream versions, that is kernel 3.13, mesa-10.0.3,...

    I haven't used blobs in years. Maybe I'm following upstream git more closely than you, or what you get through the PPA (whatever that is :p) are vaguely tested snapshots instead of the steaming hot...

    I beg to differ:


    That's when you report it upstream as soon as you notice.


    That's when you write an article about it.

    Remember when Michael bisected a regression in the kernel, then...
  10. Then, lucky you. I understand that people using...

    Then, lucky you. I understand that people using AMD open source drivers have for a long time been used to running on the edge of only the latest versions of software, even from git, because of the...

    You should never ever recommend it to any _regular_ user.


    Something that people found out by simply looking through the last few commits between 'normal' and 'degraded' state.


    It doesn't...

    When they matter, e.g. in final versions, yes. Have YOU ever used software based on live sources? Regressions may happen on any commit, might be fixed in one of the following commits. In that case,...

    So now you write articles on testing and live versions of software? Maybe you should take a break instad, and improve articles that actually matter.

    So, once again, Shuttleworth goes full dickhead and Jono Bacon expects everyone to keep quiet about it... and in his generosity, he even starts #friendlyfriday to really show off how good he is!

    So, in essence, what you're saying is that the MacBook currently is a Lemon because it fails to comply with standards that are otherwise working.

    Same with Thunderbolt - will never work with Apple...
