    Umm -- the power management on the OS drivers still causes at least some chipsets to get WAAAAY too hot. I mean as in uncomfortable to touch your laptop near your heat exhaust. It turns your laptop...

    Whatever you might think of what's going on in the desktop space, the server version is a different animal. The LTS versions are really really nice.

    Not sure if Spotify is paying for support. If...

    It's been at least a year since I last gave Arch a whirl, but I did NOT find this to be the case. At all. I'm not a Linux noob and have run and managed various distros for quite a few years. But my...

    I find the intra-distro comparisons most interesting (i.e. 12.04 vs 14.04) to see how newer features and configurations are impacting raw performance on certain tasks in default configurations. I'm...

    Add me to the list of people that think Unity 7 is pretty terrible at stability by Linux standards. It's pretty normal by Windows standards, but I don't think that's a bar Linux should strive to...

    Because yours does too -- i.e. "If you AREN'T getting ready to buy a new phone".

    You can't carve out one group from a whole and argue it negates the other group which is what your argument is...

    With HDMI inputs on TVs and adapters for phones, it's really a waste of time when people want their media on the go anyway.



    If you're already getting ready to buy a new phone and Ubuntu is an...

    The key difference is that there is already an established user base for Ubuntu. It is clearly up for debate as to whether or not that translates into a viable mobile market. I think anyone that says...

    I have an HD 4950 that I bought years ago for exactly the same reason -- to reward AMD. I've been waiting and waiting for the open drivers to approach some semblance of parity with the catalyst...

    Umm, no. Just ... no.

    This might be true for people that use it as an integral part of calculations, but not for other common and very benign things such as quicker and easier filtering of data on...

    People said similar things about Android (timing). I seem to recall not completely dissimilar discussions about Apple given that Blackberry had such a strangle on the smart phone market at the time....

    Pre-4.2 was ALL open source except for the QVM and the game assets (art, maps, etc.). "Game Logic" makes it sound like more than it is. There was a push in years past to get the QVM code released....

    And honestly -- if ever there were a way for Linux (not Android) was going to make a major play for consumers, via phones with convergence is it. I know people that are actively trying to make their...

    Not exactly. It's not "one Unity" across all form factors. Rather, they are working on an API to allow apps to scale between different visual UIs that are optimized for each form factor. Hint: they...

    For most people, the latest and greatest cell phones on the horizon have the necessary hardware to fulfill the vast majority if not all of their daily computing tasks. I mean, we're talking phones...

    I never said this. I said "desktop" not "good desktop". For things more than basic desktop functions, I've got another rig that will be able to be fit into the form factor of a cell phone after we...

    I hated Unity when I first tried it. I remember thinking how awful it was. Once I got over the initial "what in the hell is this thing" experience, I settled into some sense of normalcy. Then bugs...

    I've seen software licensing hardware dongles for machine control hardware that were impossible (at least at the time) to be made operational using any kind of passthrough with virtualization. That...

    If it's XP binary compatibility they're shooting for initially, they have at most 7 years of patent threats and probably less. After that, any and all patents filed related to XP should have expired...
