    if anything matches the definition of kernel porn.... it has to be this guy's onanistic description of Solaris. Where is Solaris today? And where is Linux? I'll stick with the duct tape.

    way you put it, sounds like amd and intel are in a dysfunctional marriage ... for a very long time.
  3. One can definitely fire devs, particularly those...

    One can definitely fire devs, particularly those who can't earn their keep...but if that took on any larger scale, there will not be any AMD left. No devs, no AMD. So it's safe to assume they will...
  4. I think what you're asking is how difficult is it...

    I think what you're asking is how difficult is it to reverse engineer/steal the IP of a proprietary video BIOS if the firmware is available in open source code? Probably a lot easier than reverse...

    So 'dungeon', do you have an alternative to capitalism? I'd like to hear it. Because if by 'open' you mean AMD should be giving away its IP so that some Chinese hack can reverse engineer it and...

    I wouldn't mind using FreeBSD for daily desktop use. In fact, I think FreeBSD and Linux should continue to borrow from each other's successes. They both can carve out their own niches either on the...
  7. Only if distrowatch is your sole source of truth....

    Only if distrowatch is your sole source of truth. And that's for desktop use only, and only God knows how they collect those stats or what they mean.

    johnc is right - you can stick a fork in...

    An astute observation by an astute chairman. I don't even know who he is but I like him already.
  9. You read my mind - a strategic...

    You read my mind - a strategic decision/partnership with AMD and hopefully their Linux-leaning brand new CEO (forgot what her name was), could result in a re-branding of Mantle to OpenGL Next while...

    Instead of complaining here, capture the screen and/or replicate and describe the problem in a bug report. The several devs who are actively working on this on various companies' payrolls are up...

    Exactly. To add to that, I'd like to know her attitude toward Linux and which of Linus' fingers is she going to earn.

    Dude, what took you so long?

    Now that would be ballsy. The things a kernel/OS project could do for Rust... it'll make it a top notch language in no time if such collaboration happened.
  14. Slower compilation and larger bins - maybe, but...

    Slower compilation and larger bins - maybe, but there is zero performance hit with C++ as opposed to C. I can prove this to you in more than hundred ways.. but I won't.

    That was the funniest thing I've heard in a loooong time. :)

    Way way ahead of its time actually. I owned a C64, always envied the Amiga 500 guys.

    You get to religiously focus on becoming a wise crackin contributor/commentator instead :). And ensuring Phoronix's/Michael's existence.

    or buy a pc/laptop with intel iris hd graphics.. unless you demand some extreme FPS in high res of games you play, Intel Iris will play most games.
  19. It could be done, but they'd detect that too....

    It could be done, but they'd detect that too. You'd have to make it appear is if the clicks are done at a 'human frequency'...whatever that is, I've no data to even begin guessing, since I hardly...

    I like this site too because you can tell Michael is engaged in it full time and keeps up with whatever is news, giving a nice overview/synthesis of Linux-related matters. His dedication to it...
