    This is simply a slander. It says little about Alan, but much about Michael.

    With its game-related articles, Phoronix seems to have attracted too much kids than is good for it.
    Please, no more flaming, go hijack another topic.

    I'm sorry, did I provoke you by presenting GOG less awesome than you'd like? That wasn't my point, anyway; in fact, I think GOG (like HumbleBundle, BTW) is a good trend in the gaming industry, given...

    Have GOG games become free/open source when I wasn't looking? Otherwise, they are as remote from the "Linux policies" as a trial version of WinRar. You can speculate that GOG games are more "free"...

    I certainly hope you're right, but all my experience with software projects AND my common sense tell me otherwise. Namely, that the big distros will be subverted, receive an inflow of dummies and,...

    Philanthropy or not, users have fundamentally different goals than companies. Furthermore, different classes of users have different goals, sometimes diametrically different. I want Linux to

  7. I don't want to reiterate everything I said...

    I don't want to reiterate everything I said above, so I'll just repeat that Linux used to be an OS designed with best interest of USERS in mind. If a corporation gets involved, it's not due to any...

    Their strategies were based on something else. For example, IBM always only wanted a stable server system to support their corporate hardware (Power) and bloatware (DB2). Novell's plan was similar to...

    Linux kernel is GPL'd, and how did that help Android?


    Just recall uid313's point about Ubuntu pushing 'partner' stuff on us. Now note that Ubuntu is by far the biggest distro out there. How did...

    I hope this is a bad joke. Commercialization and embracing of Linux by corporations threatens to turn it into yet another flavor of Android. Linux must stay a system built for its users, not for all...

    Don't support the greedy monster called EA. We all will be better off without their kind on our lawn. Additionally, I have a prior experience with Lord of Ultima, which is a poorly balanced,...

    What I've been wishing a long time is a way to offload HD video decoding/postprocessing to a more powerful machine. I once tried to use X forwarding for this purpose, but discovered that my gigabit...

    Ah yes, in case it matters: I'm using 64-bit Kubuntu 10.04.2 with 2.6.35-25 kernel, catalyst 11.2. I can post the Xorg log file in case of need, but I didn't see any errors that would tell me why the...

    No modelines?

    I used a HD3850 card a while back with fglrx and I still remember what a nightmare it was to set it up correctly. However, I have since moved on to the free radeon driver, which proved to be of much...
