    Sounds great to me! Essentially, they want to utilize the wheels already present in the graphics stack/kernel instead of inventing their own and then just package their unique selling points into...

    I think you should google the term "market economy".

    Prices are not set based on what something cost to make but on what people are willing to pay. The only time the manufacturing cost is taken...

    If anything's broken it's AMD and their drivers! Sure, there are a couple of things that could be fixed with OpenGL but much of it has. AMD however doesn't seem to be able to create a working driver....

    More users means more features requested. It's only a matter of time before people start complaining it's bloated and so the whole cycle starts again.

    My biggest beef with OpenGL is all the global state. I wish they would do another deprecation round and throw it all out and then make OpenGL 5 fully multi-threaded. Get rid of all that glBindxxx()...

    Well, you can hardly get any more secure than not running any software at all, so go OpenBSD!

    I have a 27" Samsung 3D monitor (120Hz) and I have to say that the 1920x1080 resolution is at the low end. It's good for gaming (and movies of course) but a bit lacking for coding. I really would...

    Chrome/-ium has been sandboxing flash with seccomp-bpf since version 20 and all render processes since version 23 so it would probably be very difficult to use a flash exploit for anything useful

    True, my usage pattern has probably changed since then, but that is probably at least in part due to me getting tired of the increasing bloat in Amarok. I got sick of constant issues with ruby and...

    I pretty much have the same experience. I used to love Amarok, but then they kept adding a ton of bloat, dependencies on ruby and databases and whatever so I lost interest. Today I just run mplayer...

    I have tried the demo a couple of times, it's a well made game, runs smooth and looks beautiful. However, I only used the keyboard and while this is possible, it takes away a lot of the feeling. You...
  12. I predict failure

    I don't see what this product is good for. Is it parallel computing just for the sake of it? 90 GFLOPS @ 5 watts is good I suppose, but it's not enough if you really need to do heavy calculations. In...

    Isn't this what ALL the other sound systems have been trying to do? They have all failed.

    ALSA has worked fine for me for as long as I can remember. I don't want another square wheel.

    I wrote "towards microkernel", which is where other systems are going.

    My take

    I've been running desktop Linux since 2000 (almost exclusively KDE) and I have to say it has come a long way. However, the thing that really annoys me is the regressions that keeps popping up. From...
