    They run Windows, which cannot handle DPI changes. Thus, they do not innovate. Look at how Chromebooks are pushing 1080p displays at $300 and 13.3", where to get one of those on any other kind of...

    OpenGL 4.5 was the answer to DX12 and Mantle. DSA and indirect calls are plenty enough to get extremely low driver overhead.

    The real problem is just getting there on drivers. Mesa might be at 4.5...
  3. Whenever you mount it just do mount -o...

    Whenever you mount it just do mount -o compress=lzo. fstab options are just mount -o options. If your installer is automounting the drive, remount it before installing with the lzo compress option...

    The only modern SSD controller still doing data compression on the firmware is the Sandforce controller and the dozens of drives using it. Samsung does not, so using lzo will net you tangible...
  5. The higher end the SSD the more performance...

    The higher end the SSD the more performance impact. The oldest SSD I have is a two year old 830 that spent a year on ext4 and a year on btrfs - so far it still has no reallocated sectors, because it...
  6. Until f2fs actually has some performance or wear...

    Until f2fs actually has some performance or wear impact on flash storage over ext4 (or has enough feature parity with btrfs not to justify the performance hit) I don't see the point. I've thrown it...

    Not to defend proprietary firmwares, but MSI alone cannot open source the implementations of trade secrets in Intel chipsets. Intel has to contribute enough to upstream coreboot that just wire glue...

    btrfs has saved me gigabytes in disk space with transparent compression, made restore points braindead easy (snapshots), and has recovered 15 drive file corruption errors with checksumming on just...

    They would be advertising the version of Plasma, the frameworks and individual app versions are irrelevant. A lot of KDE programs already branched off the 3 month release cycle, such as KTorrent,...

    Especially with all this Internet of things nonsense going on. Can you imagine having Internet connected freezers toasters and ovens all running holistic proprietary software you cannot modify or...

    It seems bittersweet to think that good Nouveau drivers means more money in Nvidias pockets they do not deserve, since they have contributed effectively nothing to the project.
  12. Openmax does decode as well, they could implement...

    Openmax does decode as well, they could implement that fully, but they probably know that nobody is targeting openmax for decode - at the least, there is no gstreamer openmax the way there is...
  13. You would be surprised how much of any software,...

    You would be surprised how much of any software, including most of an OS stack, is easier than fizzbuzz. Most UI elements, for example. All the file IO. All the network transactions (assuming you do...
  14. The source availability of their graphics drivers...

    The source availability of their graphics drivers has little to do with their long term viability as a hardware company.

    It would mean they could not artificially cripple their hardware or...

    The only problem with Catalyst is that it is still seeing dev investment on Linux.

    Put your weight behind Gallium3D. It could replace your Windows driver one day with how good the architecture is....

    The Mesa driver went from 0 to ~60 fps in two years. Give it another two and it should be on par with the Windows one. Sooner if AMD would get off their bum and put more devs on the project for Steam...

    Tumbleweed is a PITA in my book, since I tried running it a few weeks ago on my grandparents computer (based on AM1) to try to get it working without being stuck on kernel:stable which will...

    I am surprised and very happy that most 4K monitors on the market now (even the $600 ones) are 10 bit.
