    Hmm.. OpenBSD ripping on other projects?

    I don't think that it is on for OpenBSD people to start berating OpenSSL as a group. It's not like OpenBSD has never, ever, ever, had a bug or security problem (and Heart Bleed is "just" information...
  2. Why do anything?

    I think the answer to your question is pretty much: "because people want the absolute best graphics possible". You don't have to use a GPU, just like you don't have to use the CPU. You get the best...
  3. So how open is Mantle?

    I have concerns about how open AMD is willing to be on Mantle. There is no value in one company turning up with a solution and saying "everyone use this now". Are they going to let NVidia use it? ...
  4. A little late, maybe?

    This would have been vaguely interesting five years ago, but frankly if you look at GL3.txt the Intel guys are a fair chunk of the way to OpenGL 4.2 already. Is this additional Catalyst work really...

    At least a decision has been made - that is usually the important thing. Both Upstart and SystemD would technically have worked as an init system.

    To be fair as a basis for a server distribution,...

    Snap and then some. I see exactly this too with no extensions.

    Dunno - nothing that seems to affect Chrome, anyway.

    Sadly this is my experience too. For me, performance took a major hit ages ago when they (or at last at the same time as) introduced MySql to store browser history and bookmarks. Since then it is...

    The rumours are that Google don't let you stream directly to the device (which makes it a bit useless). They are also building an AppStore or something, although I personally don't know the details....

    Linux just became a Steam gaming platform. The current posts are Shakespeare compared to the flaming that is going to happen when a driver drops 1.74 FPS on some random benchmark in future.

    Hmm... Apart from the minor contradiction that you posted this on an article about the availability of patches for new features on the R600g code branch...

    ...and that Geometry Shaders (ok, and...

    LOL - I like this approach to planning cross-company development. I assume there was some kind of plan that the AMD guys would write the SI code, and you'd have a go at the older cards.

    There could be a middle ground, though... I'd be interested in just and occasional list of subjective "does it work/is it playable" tick/crosses on game with the OpenSource drivers. Like...

    This is extremely good news. Replacing the patented parts of OpenGL is going to be hugely important in the near future.

    I hope that Valve make ETC mandatory for the Steam Machine specifications.

    Well, either the most stupidly obvious back door code, or maybe exactly what it says: osTestBackdoor == API that bypasses the standard OpenCL APIs to do some form of testing of their OpenCL driver...

    MP4?

    What the heck is Linux.Conf.Au 2014 doing posting MP4 video files with H264 and AAC? I'd love to look at some of them, but I have no idea what these obscure proprietary file formats are...

    According to one of the presentatons at the end of the year, there are two main reasons: (1) The asked third-party developers which extensions they most wanted (extensons are "capabilities" so you...

    OK, that's your opinion (and in some cases you'd be right), but you'll find that there are a lot of people who disagree for various reasons. Java and C# are hugely popular languages and frameworks -...

    Hmm... are we ever going to get away from "Jave/C# is slow therefore you should never-ever-ever use it" arguments? Maybe I'll grant that there can be a 30-40% CPU overhead. Still, I remember when...

    Most languages are Turing Complete

    Well, there is nothing theoretically wrong with using a language other than C for your kernel, but ultimately your choice of programming language won't affect your programs that much IMO.
