    Well, I am not a gamer at all.
    However, I really do appreciate very much the work Valve is doing on Linux.

  2. Delta RPM off by default but with easy changing

    I guess, like me, most users have a decent internet connection.
    There the updates take longer due to the rebuilding of the rpm files.

    So I would prefer to have delta rpm switched off.

    Michael offered Scott Moreau a prominent spot on his great web site, to present his point of view on the subject. The space for a full four page article. That was really very supportive.

  6. like Sinatra, canonical might sing: "...and do it my way."

    Well, they might do it the canonical way. Take all the hard work from others - eg take the Wayland solution of how this minimize thing has been solved - , put some ubuntu sauce on it, so it can't be...

  10. It DEPENDS on the USE CASE !

    I would expect so.

    Various tests are showing compiling kernels, heavy en- and decoding of media files, heavy video editing, large database applications and some gaming do actually benefit from the...
  11. There is demand for different versions! with Intelligent setup/installation?

    I guess, there is demand for different version:

    a) Limited hardware
    There are still 32bit CPUs around (old machines, various ARM architectures, other special hardware).
    Those DO REQUIRE 32bit...
  12. Right! Where are those x32 distros?

    Hi chithanh

    I agree!

    So, what we really need, is some x32 systems and apps to run and compare!
  15. x32 ABI: only real facts and results will tell

    I followed the x32 discussions for quite a while.
    While there are some heavy lifters, which can utilize the 64bit width: There were several reports showing, that many applications don't really...
  16. x86 vs x86_64 vs x32 ?

    @Michael

    Hi Michael
    The x32 ABI has been in the Kernel for a while and several compiles have added x32 capability as well.
    I just wonder if there is somewhere a x32 version of a linux distro...

    I'm glad you mentioned it.
    Else I would have jumped in to put it on the table. ;-)

    Freedom of Choice

    I fully agree.

    After years of testing, last year I changed my live System from M$ Windows to Linux.

  20. Motivation to invest in quality open-source drivers?

    Just wonder, if such a "happening" is enough motivation, to seriously start investing in open-source drivers?
