    Of course you can compile your own kernel, and then Xorg and the appropriate Xorg drivers, and then build your own iso installer image with that kernel, etc. But this is beyond the technical...

    Debian LTS does not provide kernel updates, which is a shame since one of the most useful things about Ubuntu LTS is that you can still run a 2012 release on modern hardware. Debian 6 doesn't even...

    If your project can build with distcc or any of the other parallel build systems, then in terms of price/performance you might well find that $1000 worth of quad core i5s beats a similar 8 or 16 core...

    People said we would never have functional, commercially used open source CPUs, but then projects like Leon appeared and proved them wrong. It is not impossible, just hard to be motivated when we do...

    Making chips is very expensive - it is possible that nobody will ever fabricate a physical implementation of this design. That is the real problem of open source hardware. If you could just download...

    LTS is not just about stable software versions. One of the problems with using Debian stable in a business environment is that Debian does not do hardware enablement for stable releases. Imagine that...

    System branding. People don't normally say "Linux" in that context you are taking about, instead they say "Ubuntu" or "Red Hat".

    Suggesting that consumers think the Apple brand is worthless and Apple hardware design is unappealing. You can't have it both ways. You can't insist that Apple has a strong brand and aesthetically...

    Yes, it was kind of the same as it is now. There were many issues, but there were also people successfully using Nvidia and AMD drivers on Linux. Phoronix was even benchmarking - NVIDIA Linux Display...

    Ubuntu was released in 2004. Do you remember what open source driver support for video drivers was like a decade ago? It is easy to say now that open source drivers are sufficient, when we have Intel...
