  1. Tipping point?

    Nope, the piratebay killed the video rental stores. Netflix only came out here 1-2 weeks ago and DVD rentals had died years ago.

    Just need a few more AAA titles. We're almost there. I'm just waiting for a few more games and then I'll be using my gaming PC again. Some genres are still critically under represented on Steam.
  4. Linux is not a mess....

    There is no mess on Linux. Seriously Linux being a mess is a stupid argument. Linux has what Windows would if it became open source.it has a win32 layer (wine), an OSX layer (darling), msdos layer,...
  5. Game editing

    Linux won't compete with Windows for game editing until we have programs like Deep Exploration, Fred2, the Descent *32 tool suite, 3d studio max, lightwave, There's more I can't remember the names of...

    Didn't Sun spend like $200 million on usability testing which went into Gnome 2, then the community threw it all out for Gnome 3? and now they wonder why people hate the new UI.... I remember they...

    You guys actually think that DirectX's 3D paths are the problem with compatibility. That's the funny part. Wine implements approximately 75% of Windows. It's the last 25% that's stopping things from...

    Ports

    Blizzard already have a native port of WoW, they haven't released it and might not bother maintaining it, but it exists. Remember Sam Lantinga was lead software dev at Blizzard. Now he's head of...

    I used to think that Mac OS was a usable system, then I started using it for work..... now I realise that the idea of application focus and single tasking is retarded and silly in an IT environment....
  11. Richard isn't a joke.

    Everytime RMS has warned about threats to freedom within computing he's been right. Consider that for a moment. The guy predicted the NSA surveillance before anyone esp Snowden had gone public. I...
  12. Wine needs better DirectX 2/3/4/5 support....

    Wine needs better DirectX 2/3/4/5 support. Honestly I don't give a shit about later DirectX versions. 7/8/9 work quite well but there's a lot of old windows games that are broken in wine. I'd rather...
  13. GNU System.

    I think once GNU Hurd is ready for prime they should just call it the GNU system. Since that is what it will basically be. I'm more interested in what they will adopt as the official GNU Desktop...
  14. Sounds more like he doesn't get the command line....

    Sounds more like he doesn't get the command line. In OSX/windows it's possible to develop for both oses without touching the cli at all. In Linux not as easy. I don't know of any distros that ship...

    I'm pretty sure this is going to happen, HP has been working on Memristors for about 5 years publicly now.
  16. FF XIII as well

    So based on the information that Phoronix reported I checked out FF XIII, surprise they have the same updates so it's possible that the entire XIII series is coming over.
  17. happy hacking

    Grab OpenMW (http://www.openmw.org) and start hacking. The engine already supports most of the stuff you'll need for Skyrim/Oblivion, just needs to have the object and texture definitions updated....

    The point remains that for 15+ years NVIDIA has put platform support effort into BSD/Linux/Solaris, and ATi/AMD have not (as a single unified codebase with continuous effort, not stop/starting...

    For 15 years AMD has been screwing up UNIX and for 15 years they could have fixed it. FGLRX is crap, Intel never had the high performance of gaming and the open source drivers just aren't there yet....

    All I see here is more validation of the Nouveau team's good work and proof that when reclock is fully turned on the Nvidia cards will offer excellent speeds with OpenGL 4 support. Just need to have...
