    So this thing is leaking your website history to anyone with access to your password database. Seriously?

    I didn't bother reading after this. I will continue using KeePassX, which is open-source,...

    It becomes more clear if you realize that Ian is an Ubuntu developer. If Debian goes for systemd and allows "tight" coupling, then Ubuntu developers will have to do more work to disentangle Gnome and...

    Haha, that's a good one. Windows has had fully accelerated text rendering since 2009: DirectWrite. It shipped with Win7 and uses the GPU exclusively.

    LibreOffice should *really* focus on its user...

    But the kernel most certainly is.



    AFAICT, Nouveau is almost completely done by hobbyists. Intel is mostly paid and AMD is somewhere in between (started out as a hobbyist project, but several...

    It's really complicated and the driver teams are one tenth the size of what you'd find on Windows (plus a lot of the people are doing this as a hobby, not as paid work.)

    The amazing thing is that...

    The current device is indeed excellent value for money. I bought one last year and haven't regretted it one bit, it did wonders on my HP dm1z netbook and my work monitors. It's obviously not as good...

    It is obvious that you have no idea what you are talking about.

    In case anyone ever takes you seriously, C# supports processor affinity (what you call "thread mask") out of the box:

    Holy necro Batman, you dug out a 5-year old thread just to post that?

    That said, developers who cannot get this right in 2014 should be driven out of the game market. This should have been a...

    Well written.

    I would go as far as to say that they have not yet shown that they have the technical ability to finish the product they are describing. The vision is great and I support it fully -...

    Can someone please verify the existence of this string?

    Not only does this make the Catalyst driver suspect, it also casts a shadow over the open-source driver. If you remember, AMD pushed *hard*...

    Did this pal guy just make ten one-line posts on top of each other? Wow, someone must have hit a nerve.



    Off the top of my head: Qt, opencv, VTK, ITK, SFML, nall, OpenSceneGraph, Ogre3d,...

    Oh, and this. No, C++ does not have keyboard interaction in the standard library. It has std::cin which is a character-based iostream connected to a keyboard.

    There is huge difference: std::cin...

    You know what the Turbo Pascal UI and java.awt have in common? They are dead and buried.

    I hope C++ does not go down that terrible route.



    There is. It's called SDL. No need to burden the...

    Thanks, this looks interesting. I like the syntax and the fact that it has a GC, and the features on the frontpage sell the language well. However a quick look through the project blog shows that the...

    Indeed! Modules are by far the biggest gap between a modern programming language and C++. They should have been added 15 years ago, but better late than never.

    I'm intrigued.

    GObject is a tad too heavy for my current C projects (massively parallel, real-time embedded stuff), but I'll definitely have to take a closer look to Vala now. A tool that...
