    Conveniently forgetting ChromeOS, I guess.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Ubuntu jumping onto the SystemD bandwagon for 14.10 anyway. Although, when's Jessie out? End of 2015? So, Ubuntu are...
  2. No, I wasn't clear. I wasn't talking about...

    No, I wasn't clear. I wasn't talking about Android, or mobile /as it is now/. I'm talking about in 5 years time when you'll only own a mobile and it will /be/ your PC. I'm guessing, but given their...

    That might be true for servers, could even be argued for desktops. Definitely not the case for phones and tablets though. I suspect that Shuttleworth's vision here is that phones will /be/ your PC...

    It shouldn't really surprise me when Larabel's vitriol and narrow mindedness towards Ubuntu is reflected in these forums. I've lurked about here long enough to see it over and over.

    It's still...

    Pretty much. Same goes to those fools who buy Mac hardware to run linux on it. You've already given Apple your money, you're advertising their hardware with their obnoxious glowing logo on the lid...

    No mention of linux support on any of their pages that I could find, so I won't support it. I'm not having a go at the poster here - I appreciate that the video may well say that linux is already...
  7. Very true. I'm talking about 4 years ago right...

    Very true. I'm talking about 4 years ago right enough, around 2006/2007 when I became more fully invested in Ubuntu (it's on everything I run - XBMC media box, 2 laptops, one server and a PC that...

    ID were ahead of the time in providing linux support. It's shocking timing that just as Valve and others are taking the platform more seriously, ID have decided to publicly deride and ignore it.

  9. "Debacle"?

    The spate of Phoronix articles slamming an Alpha (now only recently Beta) of an upcoming Ubuntu version is getting tiresome. I'm on the verge of cutting Phoronix from my feeds - you have to really...

    Scam? In the case of Kickstarting a game, it's just pre-ordering a game.

    But Kickstarter is much more than just games. It might be easy for some linux users to discount Kickstarter - the type of...

    Curious why the non-US citizen part is a deal breaker for you? Lots of companies are restricted in this way. Even Googe only offers a tiny percentage of countries to use their Play Store. The...

    It's US only for starting a Kickstarter campaign. Anyone can pledge. But yes, it's still Amazon payments only I believe. Although some campaigns have started offering a paypal method too. Is the...

    I guess the only question I have is : will this make my Minecraft run faster on my laptop, given its AMD 5750? Because Optifine made no difference and despite my i7 processor, I'm lucky to hit 50fps...

    Misleading how? And I should point out that without Phoronix covering this article, I would never have heard about this talk on the future of Gnome. I don't subscribe to Planet Gnome...

    That's just it though. That's NOT forking. That's maintaining a patchset against the upstream. The problem is that this upstream has stated that they won't now, nor ever will integrate that patchset...
  16. What forks?

    Exactly what has Ubuntu "forked" so far?

    It's an honest question. I can't think of one example personally. I think people commonly believe that Unity is a fork of Gnome Shell, but as far as I'm...

    I've pledged for Shadowrun on the back of update 6, where they pledge linux support if they hit 1M. Which is cheeky, considering they're already at 800K - for 200K, you could hire about 3 or 4...

    Don't think I've ever pre-ordered a game in my life. The reviews will hit the web, then I'll make a decision to buy. If they've got Oilrush right, sign me up. If it's a stinker, then there's...
