    My hope is that nVidia has a private branch where they hack on porting their drivers to all of the Linux techs it doesn't support, including Wayland, KMS, Gallium, et al and that this major reworking...

    I concur with others; I can barely tolerate reading Phoronix at no cost, I certainly won't pay for it. And as I've said before, Phoronix is always the site that pushes me over the edge into turning...

    I know I've said this several times, but often on a new browser install I won't even notice ads until I come to Phoronix. Phoronix is almost always the site that pushes me over to installing AdBlock....

    I want to indicate that I really appreciate allquixotic's post.

    When I first started using Linux, I was surprised to learn that the packages would be updated only at some indefinite point in the...

    I don't really see enabling this as a realistic possibility in a real implementation. Microsoft has enough problems with anti-trust as it is and they don't have much of a problem with people...

    FYI, I normally don't mind browsing without AdBlock until I visit Phoronix. The ads on this site are entirely out of control. They are very pervasive and annoying and they disrupt my experience quite...

    I just want to +1 those who advocate static linking of closed-source programs. If you are going to distribute a package that cannot be freely relinked to new versions of the dependent libraries, you...

    Frankly, I would really like to see some new writers come on board. I appreciate your dedication Michael and I find Phoronix a valuable resource despite the painfulness of reading it, but please...

    The driver doesn't necessarily have to live in the Linux tree. It thereby wouldn't be bound by Linus's rules (assuming this one exists -- I don't know if it does or doesn't). Distros obviously have...

    I just want to clarify that this is nor really true, Arch Linux will occasionally ship a .0 kernel. If you read arch-dev-public you can see the whole process of testing. Usually people will...

    AMD driver support is broken. fglrx goes for several months after the release of a new X Server without support, and by the time fglrx gets support, a new X Server release is looming just a few...

    Sure, every generalization has its exceptions, and I thought about mentioning this one specifically given the audience but decided not to. Some people switched to AMD to promote an open-source...
  14. Also, the argument about insufficient marketshare...

    Also, the argument about insufficient marketshare is wrong. AMD has to look at this as an investment, as the only Linux users that use AMD are those that don't know any better or don't have any other...

    bridgman: As above, the problem with ATI is not really its open-source strategy, but its colossal failure in the proprietary driver. I've had nothing but problems with it and it's always way behind...

    Sauerbraten is cool, but I really don't like the community around it. I find them very inhospitable. There is no bug tracker or mailing list, everything is done in IRC, and you have to try multiple...

    Hey man, I am going to start a competing site now. I have been considering it for a while because while I appreciate the contributions of this site, the writing quality is really, really bad, and I...

    I think the idea is to provide a completely free implementation of Windows. To do that, one needs to include support for Windows drivers, too.

    Though I'm sure everyone here prefers Linux, there...

    I think it depends on how long you intend on keeping your card. fglrx is crappy but livable, and within a year or two, assuming AMD keeps cooperating, the open-source driver should be on par and able...

    I completely agree with the other posters. It's a disgrace that X is in such disarray. I think this is one of the most significant barriers to increased Linux adoption; X is great in many ways, but...
