    Well, Flatout is just a wine wrapper for the Windows game that is supported by GOG. It's not a native Linux application. Whether that's a a good thing or not is debatable. It's also not on Steam,...

    This is the case I bought 4 years ago: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147101 and it supports rack rails. It is no longer in stock, but Newegg says I purchased it for $80. I...

    Not to be pedantic, but please don't conflate BIOS and firmware. BIOS and UEFI are both firmware (as are Coreboot, OpenFirmware, etc.), but BIOS is not UEFI and UEFI is not BIOS.

    It's about the...

    The code is from Gummiboot, which already exists outside of the systemd repo and doesn't need systemd at all, so I don't understand your point.

    That wouldn't actually be very interesting since I'm pretty sure the OpenGL rendering engine is only part of the Linux and Mac builds that were ported by Aspyr. The Windows engine uses DX11.

    While it's great that it is indeed faster, 8% is not a lot. In fact, anything under 10% is largely unnoticable.

    And comparing Clang 3.5 vs GCC 4.7 in Wheezy is quite disingenuous, considering...

    The goal is to replace Gecko with Servo. There are just no plans to do so on the desktop Firefox/Thunderbird, yet.

    The only one that was really interesting was the Unigine Tropics 1.3 benchmark. I wonder why the Tropics benchmark was such the outlier.

    All the others were essentially tied; or synthetic...

    Sure, if I built it myself, but the way openSUSE builds it, it is not co-installable. I'm unsure why that is the case.

    Put down the pitchforks and take a chill pill

    First I'd like to say that I knew nothing about Gabriel Knight until yesterday, so I'm coming at this from an outsider (which may be a good thing).
