  1. Sensible

    That sounds like a good idea. C++11 and C++14 seems to be mostly about conveniences and readability, so sensibly used that should make their code a tad easier to work with. No miracles (it's an...

    They might in the future, though. Notice how both AMD and intel are integrating increasingly useful 3D cores on their CPUs, and how these integrated GPUs have rather fast interconnects and a (so far...

    If the API available to it is suitably expanded, I imagine you could patch certain types of annoyances quite easily? ("This wifi card is known to freeze; but if you load this lua script that polls it...

    Nice - now that their cleanup projects are beginning to solidify, I wonder if they'll finally meet their goal of scaling better than FreeBSD?

    Lovely; that appears to fix the last of the large outstanding issues with clang. (Well, apart from support for older/rarer platforms, but that's nowhere near as pressing.)

    Also, it should make the...

    Looking at it: Not even that, it means "it's in the base system source and there is infrastructure to build and install it". It defaults to not being built, for now.

    Also, the epoll support isn't...

    Technically, it just means "it will be compiled by default when building the base system". Linux is a bit different, in that there isn't really a base system ... it's vaguely like if debian decided...

    How about normalizing it so the fastest (or slowest, or alphabetically first, or whatever) is at 1, and the others shows how much faster/slower they are (defined e.g. as "how many times could they do...

    I do wonder what a separate intel GPU freed from the space and heat concerns of a CPU die could do. (Compete with a three year old mid-range nvidia card, I guess - but with much nicer drivers.)

    Which is a real shame, since it absolutely screams with potential - it's visually great, the controls are arcadey but decent, the UI is simple and usable, the trade + fight Elite-style gameplay is...

    On the other hand, that would also compete with a bunch of other tiny computers, like the RPi, the faster ARM SoCs, ALIX3 (AMD Geode LX 800MHz, I believe), and even mITX (a 35W TDP dualcore i3 would...

    That said, it would be fun if were possible to buy a tiny consumer version of that backplane box - scaling it down to e.g. four slots should limit the amount of switching hardware and such to a more...

    There's still work to be done to make it day-to-day usable, but indeed; this is going to make my life a bit easier. I can't wait for the different KMS projects to all be (good enough to be) enabled...

    I wouldn't bet on it being backported to 9.x from -CURRENT, it seems sort of invasive. Then again, you never know - or you could live on the risky side and run CURRENT on it, or on the cautious side...

    Is there anything objectively wrong with SurfaceFlinger, or is it just that you don't happen to like the project it's from?

    How hard would it be to port surfaceFlinger to gnu (or, just for the hell of it, FreeBSD) libc? I'm only guessing, but it seems like the complexity lies in the driver interactions, not in the libc...

    Then again, if you glue the ubuntu front-end on top of a different (but related) back-end, the result will still feel like ubuntu in most ways.
    It's basically a philosophical question: Is the...

    This is perhaps the best use of it I can think of - as an OSS reimplementation of a microsoft product used specifically to move from windows to linux.
