    Knowing something of the various projects tested here, they make a reasonable amount of sense.

    GraphicsMagick generally has its hot path in one c file for each utility (montage, convert, etc). So...

    Reading between the lines (and the posting on the LGP site that was up is now replaced by the actual site) the issue here was not that backups were not done. The problem was that the backups were not...

    Thank you. I was wondering if anyone would spot that :-)
  5. Needs error bars!

    This is fantastic! However, plotting error bars on the charts would greatly increase the value of this output. If the error bars are too small, some indication of Standard Deviation or Coefficient of...

    Am I the only info-nut who thinks charts like this are cool? :-)

    I'd be happier if you plotted these on an X-Y plot, with the x-axis being "number of pixels" and the Y-axis being FPS so we can get...

    Okay - just found that in the mound of replies. That said, I do own both Freespace and Freespace 2 - bought especially when the Freespace port became viable on Linux. Given the newer space games...

    I'm surprised to see Freespace (1 + 2) on this list because I've been playing it for years. A viable Linux port has been available via http://scp.indiegames.us/ and plays very nicely. Unless we are...

    It's certainly possible to run Urban Terror using a native 64bit IOQuake3 binary. I've been running UrT 4.1 on top of IOQuake 1.36 x86_64 for a few weeks now because of the improvements in audio...

    For gaming?

    I've read a lot of gamers complain that the wireless mouse is too laggy for high speed gaming (Warsow/Urban Terror) compared with the wired variants. I've had a wired Logitech for several years and...

    I think you'd be surprised at the performance difference between GCC 4.x and ICPC 10.x compiled code. It's not as huge as you might expect - in mixed workloads, I've typically seen anything from GCC...

    I used to be a major Angband junkie (never really took to NetHack - don't know why) and even NWN didn't really pull my RPG attentions away from Angband. However, having been in the beta and played...

    I think you're absolutely spot on to advance the open source drivers. I look around at GEM, Kernel Mode Setting and wonder what else is around the corner. New Fedora and Ubuntu releases will be...

    Double left-click in an empty part of the tab bar on Firefox 3.x. I'm pretty sure that's configurable too.

    Thanks for this info - I built the Fedora/F10 rpms without a hitch on my i686 F10 install. DRM isn't working, but it wasn't working before either, so that's not your fault!

    I'd really like to see some benchmarks for SATA vs SSDs being used as swap partitions. I've often wondered whether there would be any benefit to using SSDs (or even memory sticks/SD cards) for swap.
