    Well, do that then and maybe it will take off the same way as javascript based web apps have. Until then the rest of us can enjoy writing and using faster javascript. Seriously, what's your problem?...

    Ubuntu is creating their own solution as usual so that's unlikely!

    In this case they didn't even try to contribute to or influence the wayland project. If they had and failed I would have understood why they wanted to roll their own display server.

    Of course. But developing and supporting a Linux driver is important for these companies in any case.

    Are you running a prehistoric version of X11 too? Xorg has been autoconfiguring for some time so there is usually no need to edit config-files. Unless you manually have to apply some quirks to get...

    A great thing about wayland is that it's using existing Linux technologies (eg. KMS, DRI/DRM). SurfaceFlinger however does not. So adapting SurfaceFlinger would probably mean redoing most of the...

    Then why not use something like -march=i686 -msse -msse2? That would enable gcc to use cmov and sse/sse2 instructions and the binaries would still run on a P4.

    A lot of people seems to have that problem with some kernels / hardware configurations. I'm not sure the design of CFS is to blame. For ex. on my old slow single core Atom N280 netbook, running a...

    So? That doesn't change the fact that the A6(x), which incorporates a PowerVR GPU, is faster than the competing ARM SoCs at GPU performance. And the CPU benchmarks aren't exactly bad either, it...

    Well I can't see any sources in your post either. Or any explanation why the anantech benchmarks would be unreliable. More benchmarks have been made since the iPhone 5's launch btw, for ex. the A6X...

    This is really interesting. I wonder how the Apple A6 would do since it's after all the most powerfull ARM soc today. But I guess that would be difficult to test unless PTS is ported to iOS. :)

    If...

    It sucks that the new chromebook has the RAM and SSD soldered to the motherboard. Otherwise a larger SSD and some more RAM it would've made it a great computer to run ubuntu on.

    I think you missunderstood the point of my analogy. The point is that the average user does not care about whatever the reason a company's products has constant issues. So what if the roads and gas...

    Acutally some of Intel's latest CPUs are still only 32bit (the Atom z-series). They are used in some Windows 7 tablets like the HP slate series. Microsoft probably didn't think it was time to drop...

    Perhaps in some cases, but should a user really have to resort to repo with bleeding edge software just to get a working driver? Wouldn't it be better to support third party drivers so that the...

    My point is that it's easy to create an installable package for OSX or windows while it's more difficult to do the same on Linux due to lack of standardization. If you download firefox on windows you...

    Wrong. You are also affected if you want up to date drivers, even if they're open source. Let's say you have some new wifi adapter that's supported by linux 3.5 or later, but your distribution only...

    Oh really? I've seen it happen plenty of times. Some library is changed and then your third party software breaks because it was dependent on the earlier version of the library. Sure you can link...

    The default desktop environment on Ubuntu (Unity) has a problem that causes the framerate to drop in games (bug #988079). You might want to try starting "Ubuntu Classic (No effects)" or Unity 2D...
