    If a machine can't be unlocked, that means it's bricked to me

    The only products that lack an option to say NO are food and water. if industry requires all computers to be locked so well we can't crack them, we still have the options to buy used or buy nothing....

    The answer to that might be not to buy ARM for handling your data

    If manufacturers go this route, the counter is obvious: boycott their hardware, the same way I refuse to buy a smartphone because I distrust not only their software but also their firmware. Some will...

    A trustable TPM is main weak link in securing own systems

    I've actually thought of using this sort of system to allow verification of my own kernel and initramfs without having to boot them and compare after the fact to a stored hash, as a defense against...

    Dropping Wayland could get REALLY ugly for non-Mir DE's in future.

    GNOME at some point will probably end up usintg Wayland by default, possibly the shell will at some point only run on Wayland. Cinnamon in turn might at some later point be reforked from that version...

    I've been in enough protests to know one when I see one

    I've been in enough protests to know one when I see one. Do any of the systemd haters really think this is an issue that would be worth marching in the streets over, much less facing down opponents...

    "The Protesters?" You haven't seen REAL protest over issues far bigger than systemd

    Real protest isn't done online with rare exceptions like killing SOPA. Normally, when I think of protest I think of everything from noisy squad-size units with bulhorns outside an animal researcher's...

    Web site integration not a likely goal of any init system

    I don't see wny anyone would integrate a web site into the boot time init system, the only possible advantage would be to a user setting that as a homepage in browser or having a phone/tablet start...
  8. Firmware on ROM or generated by the card should not get a pass

    AMD gets put at a disadvantage because their firmware loads from disk and can be replaced or even left out to run a small card in 2d only (good enough for an IceWM laptop, etc). Intel includes...
  9. That makes Intel procs with AMT unusable when security against police is needed

    The presence of any kind of firmware "antitheft" backdoor is enough to blacklist a chip from any use where any police agency or intelligence service in a nation friendly to the source country is a...

    Linux does not need to be "saved" from Systemd

    Systemd does not send my personal information to the NSA or the FBI, Systemd does not require me to pay money for Linux. Systemd does not expose me to lawsuits for modifying or redistributing itself...

    To your hardware scripts are MORE complex than binaries

    To the actual hardware, a single executable binary for any particular init task is a hell of a lot simpler than running a larger general purpose interpreter binary with an ascii script as the...

    Why Systemd isn't Windows

    The problem with MS Windows isn't design features like using the "registry" to configure all system programs, it's the fact that it's closed source, it's sold rather than distributed freely, and...
  13. Taming bulldozer/piledriver on air

    Here's what works for me in the relatively small aluminum Diablo "fly" case, keeps socket temp under 62C and indicated CPU temp at no more than "50C" (huge offset in the sensor). Thermaltake FriOCK...
  14. Both AMD and Ebay are alternatives to Intel's gouging

    Or buy last year's proc and board on Ebay from a gamer who just updated, alternately buy AMD and tell Intel where to stuff their demands. If AMD didn't exist Intel would probably not sell any proc...
  15. You're not the only one to reject Intel's business practices

    I regard Intel business practices as so objectionable I would never buy anything from them where an alternative exists. So long as AMD or anyone but Intel makes a CPU that edits video as well as the...
  16. I had a board DESTROYED by VRM heat issues with an FX8150

    In early 2012 I had one of these boards die and take out the FX8150 on it. It was obvious what had happened, one of the voltage regulator IC's was blown apart! I suspect due to that heatsink being...

    That should ne easy

    Ubuntu is not like Windoze: Keep up with the updates and you will automatically have the main release when its packages hit the repos.
  18. You can control hyper-Z on a per-app basis right now

    I forget the exact code to do so, but games can be called from terminal or script with hyper-Z enabled or disabled when the default is to the contrary, If it works on most of your applications and...
  19. If the job isn't multithreaded or doesn't scale well

    If the job isn't multithreaded or doesn't scale well, you don't need an 8-core processer either. Neither cluster nor $1K Intel proc will outperform a much cheaper chip with few cores but high clocks...
  20. Not exactly irrelevent for multitheaded

    It's not irrelevant if for the same price I can build a multinode AMD cluster that outperforms the Intel chip, so long as the job in question is fully multithreaded and scales very well, such as...
