    The performance impact from using encryption is...

    The performance impact from using encryption is negligible only on Intel Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs.

    Pentium and Celeron CPUs have hardware accelerated AES instructions disabled (stupid Intel).

    (I'm...

    Where's reliable software mixing of input and output? Where? Why even in 2015 I've got a situation when applications block all other applications from using my sound card?

    Windows has this problem...

    1. Audio in Linux is still largely broken.
    2. MS Word 2013 will open Word 2000 documents without any problems.
    3. Maintaining backwards compatibility is the key to success, as seen by Windows,...
  4. If Linux distros in 2014 are so easy to install,...

    If Linux distros in 2014 are so easy to install, a developer cannot do that, that says a lot about the quality of OSS. What quality, I might add.
  5. Actually one of the developers read this damning...

    Actually one of the developers read this damning list of Linux problems and agreed with it wholeheartedly. You may disagree with certain points, saying "I don't care", "I don't have this problem" or...

    Nothing can beat Terminus.

    Nothing. Trust me. Once you've tried it, you'll never return to anything else.

    3 AAA games for a year.

    Michael, are you serious? It's a milestone for Linux gaming? It's an embarrassment. Loki around 1999-2000 ported almost three dozen AAA games - that was something to...

    For a second I thought "game" meant wild animals, birds, and fish that are hunted for food, especially as a sport ;-)

    The irony is that it's probably the case.

    Speak for yourself, Michael. Can you tell us how many Linux users encode at all? I guess it's less than 1%. And out of this percent, can you tell us what codecs people prefer? I've never seen a...

    Bullocks. What matters to the user is performance and performance only (stability too, but GCC rarely miscompiles the code and such errors are usually fixed in a timely manner).

    Google has...

    I would remove the drawing and leave only the logo.

    Sorry, the drawing doesn't appeal to me.

    It's funny how many idiots are out there.

    In this single thread there are two very vocal idiots, luckily, both are now on my ignore list.

    Both have never compiled a single line of code, yet...
  13. This mantra, "which compiler compiles faster" is...

    This mantra, "which compiler compiles faster" is actually a horse byproduct to put it mildly.

    Absolutely most programmers are only interested in the speed of the resulting code: it has to be the...

    What are you exact problems with NVIDIA?

    I've owned their cards for over 16 years already and so far I've had zero problems with their drivers.

    However each of my friends who's ever had AMD...

    Within the margin of error there are no Linux steam users. Sorry.

    What you're seeing in Steam HW Survey is some statistical noise.

    This is such BS.

    The kernel does not distinguish between applications' own memory and IO operations, thus, and it constantly happens under heavy IO when you copy large amounts of data,...

    Show me a single test/benchmark where a system with SWAP enabled beats the same system without SWAP.

    No, I'm not talking about embedded systems which are absolutely low on memory.

    I'm talking...
  18. Nah, it's not that simple, the code is still...

    Nah, it's not that simple, the code is still there and it's used (don't ask me why and how, just run `ps ax | grep kswapd` on a system where you don't have swap enabled in fstab).

    This is quite...
  19. Disabling SWAP support in the kernel is not...

    Disabling SWAP support in the kernel is not incorrect in any way. Disabling IPC or RPC is but I'm not that stupid. Watch your words. In fact most sane people disable SWAP because SWAP is rarely if...

    If you don't configure init files and GRUB and you only use vendor kernels, I'm glad for you.

    However I'm a power user and I love to meddle with my system.
