    Didn't know that, I was just referring to what the benchmark was using. I guess only some of the OSes get updated? Weird...

    Well, not to mention that it's still using Mesa 9.2.3 (which is not even the latest bug fix release in the 9.2 series) instead of Mesa 10 like in Arch...

    If that mirror is slow, there's also the torrent here: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/9467509

    If, like me, your connection to Australia is slow, you can get all the 2014 videos here via bittorrent: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/9467509

    Or the magnet link if you prefer.

    Hi cmr~, the Rust website mentions that it supports generics and metaprogramming, which I assumed to mean something comparable to C++ templates'. Is that not the case? What can templates do that Rust...

    People can find predictability with /dev/urandom, not with /dev/random. But that's kind of by design... /dev/urandom was created so that reads from it would never block even when the system hasn't...
  7. Reason for each desktop to build their own compositors?

    This has probably answered before but what's the reason for each desktop to build their own Wayland compositors instead of having them all use and work on the Weston compositor? It seems like there's...

    I've always wondered if it would make sense to use SSDs as a new layer in the cache hierarchy rather than as an additional faster drive? e.g. hard disk -> SSD -> memory -> L3/L2/L1 caches ->...

    Good points. It would be interesting to see how much SELinux and LVM affect performance.

    I don't. Your question assumes that Blender can always generate more FPS than the monitor can handle.

    You're right, it does make sense to sync to vblank if you can consistently generate more FPS than your monitor refresh rate; but at this point I was referring to most games which are struggling to...

    So essentially, gnome-shell in its current form is a step backwards for Linux gaming (and other fullscreen OpenGL apps like Blender)?

    Only internal interfaces, not userspace facing ones; those are pretty much set in stone from what I understand. That was one of the reasons Jerome Glisse had given for the proprietary drivers having...

    Now that the TrueType bytecode patent has expired, future versions shouldn't have this issue.

    Also, for people living where software patents don't apply (like in Europe), you can just install the...

    I wonder if NVIDIA actively helps with development of Apple's drivers, or if they are just given documentation and Apple does the rest.
