    None of them have blobless open firmware support. The one that got kickstarted even has an Nvidia GPU. Even though Nouveau exists and works, and is practically the freest implementation of a discrete...

    How is it strange? Frameworks is a developer thing you shouldn't care about as an end user. Plasma is the desktop, and the only mental dissonance is how apps are a collection of KDE4 and 5...

    Having used both, I agree on Rust being the successor. The problem with D is that it lacks differentiation in its core syntax. It most ways its just a better C++ - but that is not enough motivation...

    Better use of time is to make OpenGL Next not suck, since its an API rewrite anyway.
  5. Sucks that this means the next generation of...

    Sucks that this means the next generation of devices and pretty much all 4k content will be h265 uncontested. vp9 is just not that good, and mpegla has too much lobbying power for it to be a contest...

    They already released 4.5 to counter DX12. We still have not seen if DX12 is a rewrite or just extensions on DX11, and if that is the case it still has the semantic bloat and conflation that OGL is...

    You can use KDE or Mate or Cinnamon if you want Gnome 2. Gnome 3 I think is actually doing great work being an idea pot - besides Windows 8, Material Design and OSX Yosemite both ripped off Gnome 3...

    I think the root problem is that Mir fundamentally ruins the potential for Ubuntu to be the "default" Linux it always was. Because the stuck a stick in the mud and are forcing developers to debug...

    No one even mentions UDF. It supports Unix permissions and is supported by every OS. I would have liked to see benchmarks on that, especially since the metadata layout isn't that horrible like in...

    Hopefully this time next year AMD hires another half dozen developers for Gallium to make it great for the Steam Machines release, where Gallium supports OpenMAX, VDPAU, VAAPI, DirectX9, and OpeGL...

    I'm not sure if Steam lets you have a hard dependency on another developers game. It would need to require you to have Morrowind as well, and would need to download the data files only.

    It would...

    I get this:



    Mesa 10.3.5, kernel 3.17.6, Chromium. The browser doesn't crash though, and Firefox does if I do the same.

    Also, I cannot seem to figure out what setting in STK breaks on...

    What software available on the BSD's is not available under Linux? The BSD users mostly just don't want to have a heterogeneous ecosystem / don't like the GPL, neither of which are really UX...

    These kinds of browsers already exist in the Qt world, like Rekonq or Qupzilla. The problem is that they don't have the addon infrastructure Firefox has, and a lot of the new top heavy web features...

    Optimized for used to mean the game works across all GPUs and has custom optimized code paths for the sponsoring vendor. I do get that today games use it as a synonym for "only works right on" but I...

    It doesn't really need exclusives, if Valve just released their future games for SteamOS before all the other platforms it would move the market. Like how GTA5 did drive console sales due to its...

    There are countless reasons for a Windows user to want to switch. There is also a need for them to switch to save the future of personal computing from proprietary walled gardens taking away their...

    Release the game and have it spit out debug output of all its GL calls. Mention on the Steam page only supports Nvidia, but make sure any switch in the engine is togglable by the end user so we can...

    Until Steam Machines are on store shelves (or Ubuntu powered PCs are) this won't change. Despite the fact that a lot of people in the upper echelons of the tech ecosystem think everyone builds their...
