    It's already pointless in the sense that DirectCompute gives pretty good access to the GPU to implement physics. It's not pointless however in that it's an existing library that gives accelerated...
  2. Current status?

    I'd like to know if there's any documentation or blog posts etc regarding the current state of RAID 5/6 in btrfs. I'd like to use it but have been avoiding it until it's "ready".
  3. You've missed the point of Secure Boot. It's...

    You've missed the point of Secure Boot. It's still the AVs responsibility (as well as the user) for preventing malware from entering the system. The point of Secure Boot is to prevent malware hiding...

    I thought they couldn't come to a consensus on that vote, which is why Devuan forked.

    The patches have already been developed. The Wine developers just don't want to accept them.
  6. I agree, yet I see this kind of thing all the...

    I agree, yet I see this kind of thing all the time. The software vendors usually prefer sticking up a dialog saying "your hardware is not currently supported" rather than having the app crash in...
  7. How will that help? Doesn't work with Intel,...

    How will that help? Doesn't work with Intel, since Intel doesn't use Gallium. I doubt they're going to port to an experimental Direct3D 9 implementation on Linux just to work around potential driver...
  8. What do they mean by "drop support"? They'll...

    What do they mean by "drop support"? They'll prevent the game from running, or they'll just ignore bug reports when the driver is Intel or AMD? If the former, then we've just lost a reproducible test...

    BenQ E2220HD. It's not fast, however it doesn't feel significantly slower than most monitors I've used lately.
  10. I don't know what UEFI systems you use, but my...

    I don't know what UEFI systems you use, but my one boots faster than my monitor.

    DirectX, being COM based, (indirectly) builds on top of Win32. WinRT also builds on top of Win32. They alluded to that on the Building Windows 8 blog.

    I'm pretty sure he's the developer of the clean room Lima/Mali driver...

    Huh, I wasn't aware they were still using them. At least some of the Atoms use Intel graphics, I guess I just assumed they did that across the line.

    Intel went with IMG because it seemed easier to go that route rather than reinvent their own. They got burned badly by the poor driver support, so they dropped IMG in favour of scaling down their own...
  15. Templates and objects are orthogonal features....

    Templates and objects are orthogonal features. You don't need to use objects to use templates.

    Operator overloading can be dangerous if done incorrectly, but again that has nothing to do with...
  16. It's more likely a choice of the app developer,...

    It's more likely a choice of the app developer, not the distro maintainer.
  17. You seriously misunderstand templates if you...

    You seriously misunderstand templates if you think they are not a compile time feature. Also, "mixing with inheritance" is not the basic template use case.

    Templates are great when you don't...

    Good to hear there's finally some movement on RAID5/6. Any word on what the current status on the other roadblocks are? Their wiki page seems horribly out of date.

    Because that would take years to do, assuming the main kernel maintainers actually want to change the language.

    Some, not most.


    Okay, now we know you're one of the trolls.
