    Thanks devs!!

    +1 to see Metro: Last Light working with the free software drivers. Leave no excuse to keep the proprietary drivers around, which in turn gives AMD more incentive to focus...

    I got the survey this time (first time in a long time), but it just happened to appear when I went to Steam under Wine for a minute to check if I had any updates to download. When I saw this, I...

    There seems to be come confusion here.



    This is not the same thing at all, for at least a couple of different reasons.

    1. FSF requires copyright contribution so they can close loopholes that...

    Or to put it another way:

    BSD: Usually free, but allows developers to restrict users through proprietary forks.
    GPL: Free, and ensures the code stays that way.

    Which is more free is obvious.

    Glad to see RMS continuing to stick to his guns, although I expected nothing less from him.

    The primary reason that Clang and LLVM exist in their current form is to avoid GPL3+. Companies that...

    Sure seems like trolling to me too. ESR knows full well the FSF stance on GCC (why RMS created it in the first place), licensing, and why they won't have anything to do with proprietary software....

    Looks like the Lenovo X201 (2010 12" 1280x800 LCD, i5-540M CPU, 4G RAM) is starting to get some support.

    Yes, but you had to manually enable it in about:config with media.gstreamer.enabled before. It sounds like in 26 it will be enabled by default.

    On the 5870 it's plenty fast. Not sure what the frame rate was last I tried, but the only real problem was the field of view. I couldn't increase the FOV setting enough to compensate for such a wide...

    I've been running 6x 1280x1024 LCDs on a single Radeon HD 5870 using the free software radeon for about a year now. I don't have issues with my desktop not remembering my monitor layout or anything...

    I've had a lot of success with gaming under Wine, but I'm well aware of its limitations and what to expect from it.

    In general, if a game supports Windows XP (and thus requires no higher than...

    Actually, I suspect the problem is that they keep breaking the client all the time on non-Ubuntu distros. I've had to fix up my install on Debian Wheezy a number of times since the client has been...

    Many people such as myself have Steam detected as being run on Ubuntu, when in fact it's just a Ubuntu chroot. Some might even have configured a dual-boot setup just for Steam to minimise problems.

    As has been pointed out previously, there are actually only one or two very vocal people here that are against Valve and are pro "piracy" (I prefer the term copyright infringement). I very much doubt...

    Kind of surprised to see that DirectX 10/11 isn't given a higher priority. With Windows XP extended support expiring in just over a year, I expect that soon we'll start to see many games dropping...

    I run a ton of stuff (mostly games) under Debian Wheezy GNU/Linux using Wine. I run a chroot (managed nicely via schroot), and individual wineprefixes for the majority of my apps so it's easy to make...

    Awesome! I looked around a few years ago for a project like this, and was surprised when I couldn't find anything. Good luck - I really hope this project takes off.

    I recall using X-CD-Roast for the longest time. I think at some point I switched to k3b, and Brasero as of late. Now that I'm an XFCE user, I might give Xfburn a look... however I rarely burn discs...

    and then


    You contradicted yourself. So which is it; is the point of nouveau to focus on old unsupported hardware or new Fermi hardware?

    I also have to agree with fhuberts that X.Org shouldn't...
