    I've read that XFS is a better filesystem, and ext4 is getting obsolete and has some design flaws. The problem with XFS was until a while ago the implementation was not that good, but that has been...

    I lol'd at high end european devices. Yes, bq is an european company, it is one of the about 8-10 Spanish smartphone manufacturers. I don't see many differences between the smartphones from Spanish...

    You are so wrong it is not even funny. First of all, a format can't be open or closed source. vp9 is an open specification, but so is h.26x family (have you ever heard of the x264 and x265...

    By the way the test linked in this blog post http://maxsharabayko.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/next-generation-video-codecs-hevc-vp9.html compares h.264 with vp9, but the h.264 implementation used is not...

    Nope, I've seen a couple of quality tests that show h.264 and h.265 over vp9, vp8 lags way behind. By the way, I'm not contradicting what you say (I did not make the tests), just stating I did not...

    Mmm, I don't know where the author got from that vp9 offers better compression than h.264. All the tests I've seen say otherwise.

    I'm pretty sure this is not the first version of firefox in linux with h.264 support.
  8. I think the difference here is in: can the...

    I think the difference here is in: can the manufacturer update the software? If he can't then I think the fsf would consider it hardware, if not, I don't think so, because it is an artificial...

    What I mean is: the firmware we are talking about runs on the device (graphics card, wireless card). What I don't understand is why the fsf doesn't have any problem with all the closed source...

    I don't think that explains their position on closed firmware. How can you be ok with closed source firmware if it is saved on a ROM, or even if it is saved on writable memory, but you are against it...

    I never understood their reasoning to not accept closed firmware.

    Python is not slightly slower, it is even slow compared to other languages that do not generate machine code: java, c#, javascript... Obviously well written python app is not even close to being as...

    I think you have to be very shortsighted if you don't see how beneficial steam is for linux. People that like to speak about freedom - software freedom, but what about people's freedom. Should people...

    I don't know about firefox on linux (last time I was using linux regularly was 2 years ago, and firefox sucked there), but at least on windows and android, it is very solid if you don't use flash. I...

    Compared to the typical firefox release it has many new features indeed. In my opinion the most important by far is H.264 support. With that feature and an addon to change the user agent on a per...
