  1. Obviously cmr~ knows Rust way, way, way way...

    Obviously cmr~ knows Rust way, way, way way better than I do, but to add to what he said - my understanding is that the entire reason Mozilla developers created the language was for an equivalent or...

    Thanks for the information. I hope Mozilla in general, and Rust and Servo in particular do well.
  3. I thought the same thing. Cool. One thing...

    I thought the same thing. Cool.

    One thing that surprised me about Mozilla and Rust - the flagship Rust project is the "Servo" browser. The last time I tried to compile it, it involved tons of C...

    D1.0 was created by Walter Bright, who wrote a working commercial C++ compiler but didn't have a formal computer science education. D2.0, which is the current version, was mostly designed by Andrei...

    Wow, that is a tremendous improvement. Cool.

    If you posted it in the video I missed it - what video card and driver are you using? (If you do not wish to publish that, it's fine. I am just...

    Huh. Funny that Microsoft would be so inconsistent. Maybe the other school was paying them a big support contract and yours was not.



    I developed software for Windows CE from 2001 to 2005...

    I had to look that up. That's awesome. Ideally, it would be automatically integrated in Yast/yum/dnf/apt, so that every time you made a change it would snapshot for you and you could revert...

    He said he worked at a school. Microsoft works extra hard to help schools and keep their products cheap for schools because their marketers are smart - make someone comfortable with Microsoft...
  9. I know it's an unpopular position to hold, but I...

    I know it's an unpopular position to hold, but I think that the latest Microsoft stuff is largely pretty good, technologically speaking. I prefer to use alternatives for political reasons, not...
  10. As a practical matter, most of the people coming...

    As a practical matter, most of the people coming to Linux have used Mac OS X and especially Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7 before. So I think it's only sensible for Linux desktop environments to...
  11. That's not really a fair comparison, though. ...

    That's not really a fair comparison, though. Microsoft makes its products available to educational institutions cheaply or completely without cost, and in that environment you get better support...
  12. Actually, I don't mind the Unity user interface. ...

    Actually, I don't mind the Unity user interface. I only wrote "Shuttleworth went crazy and Ubuntu development went haywire" because I think the way they rolled out Unity was terrible. My big...
  13. It's not hard to explain or to understand. You...

    It's not hard to explain or to understand. You want it to "just work". I understand that, and I respect it. I do.

    I'm not making the argument that Linux, with the current driver support...
  14. Seconded. I'd say that a well-configured Linux...

    Seconded.

    I'd say that a well-configured Linux desktop, which is not that difficult to do, is pretty close behind OS X for visual aesthetics and comfortably ahead of Microsoft. That's pretty damn...

    I absolutely believe the reason Perl, Python, Ruby and PHP came to dominate web development is the rapid feedback loop. Change your source code, save the change, Alt-Tab to your browser, hit F5,...

    C++ is an awesome language, but of course it's...

    C++ is an awesome language, but of course it's very complex. D (version 2) has some features that I don't think C++11 has or realistically can ever get without rewriting the language. "static if"...

    I'm not frustrated with the developers, I'm frustrated with the companies that generate wealth, often massive wealth, using source code from BSD license projects and then give back comparatively...

    Hear, hear!

    I have nothing against FreeBSD or CLang LLVM. But it infuriates me to know that wealthy companies like Apple, Microsoft, Oracle, and Sony take BSD licensed software and incorporate...

    Thank you! I stopped gdm, installed the 11.8 driver, restarted, and everything is fine. Sweet!

    My hat is off to anyone who contributed to fixing the problem, either by information gathering or...

    I wonder if anyone that is experiencing the bug is running 32-bit Linux? It seems like everyone affected is running 64-bit. Maybe that's a coincidence, maybe not.
