    From screenshotting touchy data or other such graphical hacks. The solution of "whitelisting" apps that can do screen capture etc. is good but it needs to be in users control. Also I can't imagine...

    I didn't even read that paper before Michael brought it up. I worked with epoll and kQueue both and speak from experience. Subjectively it also seemed to me that the system CPU usage was lower on...

    Linux could copy kQueue I think there shouldn't be major obstacles to it. The reason why it makes so much difference is that each syscall/gateway (program waiting for kernel response) is 10-100x...
  4. It's true

    FreeBSD is better on the network stack. I should know since I coded a networking library to use the best possible non-blocking mechanism on various OSes.

    Just for a specific comparison, freeBSD...

    Yes I do, but a 2009 laptop which btw. was replaced in 2012 due to a hardware fault with a brand new "same" specs just 2012 made one which was still sold at the time (never happened to me with...
  6. Other way around

    I have it the other way around.

    I was working with windows at my previous job due to requirements (PCs owned by operator we worked at). At home I used linux for all my projects and development,...

    Packaging and testing

    I started a small company with the intent of packaging and testing commercial/closed source or even open source applications for the most wanted distributions. I even started to make an automated...

    I'm sorry if I sound rude here, but this is extremely naive. People are not capable of this kind of disciplined behavior with computers (and gamers especially). You get a "hardcore" group which will...

    No they don't. I had to fix libopenal.so.1 to libopenal.so.0 on many occasions with 3d FPS games to get them to work. I bought And Yet It Moves and it works "now" but I expect it to break a few...
  10. They won't

    They won't make a Linux client even if it'd be just a matter of recompilation. Same with Blizzard, they have the GL versions done and ready but they wouldn't bother with Linux clients for a very...

    I know this wasn't for me, but once HoN is running smoothly on an X1600 Mobility level card with at least medium settings then we can conclude the OSS drivers mature.

    Also Doom 3 needs to be able...

    Wine is not an emulator :P It basically just remaps function calls to *nix equivalents and even provides a more optimized OpenGL pipeline than e.g. the original W3 GL mode (which is outdated).

    This is a load of crap. I bought this laptop ~3 years ago mainly for the X1600 ati mobility radeon card (which at that time was quite nice).

    Now I'm stuck without GL2.0+ 3D support (and flaky...

    I can't because it's a laptop. And my main focus is development, not gaming (although there's some gaming development going on :D).

    I'm not whining, but IMHO AMD/ATI could put more effort in this....

    Mobility X1600 + kernel .31

    Radeon OpenGL 2.0 support

    IIRC the latest Mesa already supports OpenGL 2.0. Is there any ETA as to when ATI radeon and radeonhd driver will support openGL 2.0? It's becoming a real PITA not being able to have shaders in 3D...
