    Actually these bugs have been fixed in 4.6.x series. At least in Debian. My akonadi + instances eat < 5 (some akonadi services each ~900KB) MBs of RAM. I can pay that price for the ability of...

    Indeed, yes. If the source device doesn't want to encrypt the signal, HDCP doesn't come into play. My post was from a purely technological point of view. You can use HDMI devices just right away...

    IIRC, ATI's current cards decouple DRM hardware from video acceleration bits during design in order to be able to release documentation about their video and 3D engine. On the other side, HDCP is not...

    I also have some feedback about the survey. First the resolution question: I run a 22" screen 1680x1050 pixels and just confused which option to select. I could find by doing a simple multiplication...

    I hate to disagree but, ATI had an OpenGL demo called VideoShader demo that postprocessed the video of your choice on the fly and it was a big hit with 9500/9700 cards. They were also able to decode...

    Yes, they have. There's even a small benchmark.

    OTOH, OpenCL is a standard and CUDA is just a vendor specific API. I'd also prefer OpenCL even it is a bit harder to code.

    GeForce FX was the first family that came with the ShaderFX and CinemaFX (or CineFX) engines, you are right, but 8500 family is older than FX family IIRC. Also Rage64Pro had a hardware DVD decoder...

    ATI had GPU acceleration before in Linux in 9600 and X1600 era but they dropped it to re-write it from scratch. It was not literally HW decoding but it accelerated most of the video and enabled 720P...

    I don't know if it's the correct place to tell such things but I don't have a better choice at this time. If anyone can point me to a better place to tell such things, I'll be happy.

    Why am I thinking that "washed out colored" images show more details or is it really they are more detailed in terms of spatial detail?

    To be honest, as a programmer, I expext that if a code is better than other, it works faster (in this context). So, yes, glxgears may not be a benchmark and just tries to render three meshed gears...

    The whole case is filled with dark spots, incosistent information and begs for more, clear and true information.

    For example, ReiserFS's refusal to adoption has nothing for this case. Yes, the...

    Even OSS is GPL, why should I get a key from them every 6 months and recomopile and re-install it? Yes, I can remove key system too but why should I bother when there's ALSA?

    If you ask me, releasing specs to wild is good enough for today. I'm using an Audigy2ZS and I'm happy with it. It sounds quite good on Linux and I can even use the digital out on it (with an old FPS...
