    The inti system doesn't. The basic network-setup system that's packaged alongside the init system does.

    Why would this be a "powerful incentive"? It might be a useful thing to have, but it's certainly not a killer feature to compel Intel to spend money on writing new drivers from scratch.

    *Never* a good way to sign off an email... that's pretty much guaranteed to invoke Murphy's Law...

    Maybe, maybe not. Much of the difficulty in implementing modern OpenGL spec is that it's all extensions and edge cases, bits bolted onto an aging core API. A new API designed cleanly from scratch and...

    Likewise, though less because of the changes in management, and more because of the changes in environment. It's foolish to assume that the Microsoft of today will continue with the exact same...

    Oh, sure... it's a huge deal for anyone interested in circuit design. But it's not - and probably never will be - a workable substitute for even the cheapest modern GPU, so anyone enthusiastically...

    Not very well, because it doesn't have drivers either, so someone needs to spend some time writing those. And then when you have both hardware and drivers, you'll most likely find that it can't...

    Have you actually looked at what you'd be getting for your money? Basically, it's an exercise in FPGA programming... educational, but with little real-world value. As far as I can tell from the...

    Aren't you ruling out the entire part of the market that don't care all that much about either graphics, or high-end performance? Say, business desktop machines... companies with a few thousand...

    It's that "theory vs practice" thing again. A proper micro-kernel is a thing of beauty from an architecture perspective - but keeping that purity of architecture means you can't make the compromises...

    Is it a major problem? Maybe not, but it's still a bad look. If you've been going for more than ten years and twenty releases, and have yet to put a release out on time - maybe, just maybe, your...

    On the other hand, some bugs are more serious than others. For all that Linus vented on this one, my interpretation is that it's a pretty niche bug... it's a case where the kernel violates ABI, and...

    The problem is, Fedora releases are *always* delayed. Every single release cycle in recent memory, we've gone through the same pattern of the release being delayed a few weeks, then another few weeks...

    That seems an odd thing to say. PHP is almost twenty years old, and most of it's flaws aren't due to quirks of the author - they're because they seemed like good ideas back at the time when building...

    Well yes, PNG compresses too. But JPEG is a format that's specifically optimised for *photos*. It's not a general-purpose image format, but for the case it's designed for, it's hard to beat...

    PNG and JPEG are designed for different purposes. In particular, JPEG uses lossy compression, which is generally fine for photos, where perfect accuracy of every pixel isn't critical. In contrast,...

    You're reducing it to an either/or scenario - it's either modular, or not. Notice that I'm (repeatedly) not saying that modular is bad - only that there's such a things as being *too* modular. Taken...

    You misunderstand. I'm not saying you have to live with every change, that you should just accept them as they come - I'm saying you'll achieve nothing by standing in front of a runaway train and...
