    Some people prefer to believe in evil and conspirancy, I prefer to believe in stupidity. I mean, if image size is more important than a major usability issue for end users, you deserve the market...
  2. Well I doubt they will replace firefox before...

    Well I doubt they will replace firefox before 15.04, but eventually unity 7 will be deprecated and I don't know of plans to port it to unity 8/mir, so it would have to run on top of XMir, which is...

    I haven't been able to watch the video yet, but I definitly like where they are going. Professional looking DEs really need core apps designed to trully integrate with the DE and between themselves....

    A Kabini kit with a 2.5hdd bay, >2 USB3 and coreboot would be sweet

    My 50c:

    Obviously hardware companies will design software in a way that favours their own product (hardware). Nobody should expect anything different.

    It should be up to the distribution...

    I hope they don't, somebody has to clean up this multiple API madness, and since no distro has done so, Valve is certainly up to the task.

    Christian, could you elaborate a little abou the flexibility of these blocks (UVD and VCE)? For example, is VCE only usefull for H.264? Could it be eventually used for other codecs, even if only...

    It seems to me Mantle is a workaround for something that it already solved by a much cleaner, more efficient and longer term solution: open source drivers.

    Once developers realize that they can...
  9. It seems to me that there are two main obstacles...

    It seems to me that there are two main obstacles that prevent people from using LibreOffice instead of MSOffice: either the learning curve is too steep and people don't bother, or LO simply can't do...

    That's why I can't wait for game developer to start having contact with open drivers. The development will probably skyrocket as game devs uncover bugs which affects their games and provide patches...

    Yes, unfortunately nobody seems to carry on with it, which is a shame. It would be awesome if linux had at least partial compatibility with native, html5, android and windows apps (even if through...

    Jolla OS provides compatibility with android apps...

    Jolla OS provides compatibility with android apps right? Is this compatibility layer open source? I wonder if it could be ported to other linux distros...

    From the benchmarks, CPU performance seems to be much more constrained by the TDP than GPU. So either the GPU is extremelly efficient or it is bottlenecked by something else, which may very well be...

    You are asking the wrong question. SteamOS does not try to offer more than a linux distro can offer. It is only a way for valve to enter the living room gamig market, essentially becoming microsoft's...

    What's the clock of the memory? I wonder if the relatively higher performance of the lower power skus found in anandtech's review is somehow related to a memory bandwith bottleneck. It would be...

    Converged OS/App ecosystem does provide OEM's which ship all these kinds of devices to drastically reduce costs by sharing so much. I'm sure players such as samsung, lg and sony, would much rather...

    By that line o thought, valve released SteamOS with open drivers for intel, so why not for amd?



    Well, there is something in opensource called forking. Thats when you decide to stop developing...

    Well, it doesn't need to be that way. AMD could very well release a custom kernel+mesa+gallium stack for the specific SKUs featured in steam machines (which will most probably be all GNC anyway),...

    This is really disapointing news... I was hoping they would land a boatload of fixes to bring the open drivers up to par. Well, i hope thats still the target in the long run.

    I don't know if the...
