    You give the average user a lot of credit. I don't think most windows users know how to install a driver, otherwise MS wouldn't have Windows Update doing it for you. Even then, WU doesn't get them...

    Not surprised. Apple can optimize thier software for their tightly controlled hardware. You can actually optimize Ubuntu for a decent gain in efficiency. With a basic script, I can get my ProBook...

    Yeah, it seems like LibreOffice really makes my excel spreadsheets look bad. Not sure why it doesn't do well with formatting. Makes it hard to use as a daily driver at home when my work uses only MS...

    Dang, the cheapest Thunderbolt motherboard at newegg is $250.

    Maybe Michael can convince a vendor to send him a test sample for...

    I was more or less agreeing with you. PC gaming is small, but a very dedicated following. They are typically the dedicated few that OC the living piss out of everything, which in turn has encouraged...

    Yeah, and that small portion of gamers are the most lucrative to hardware makers. I just buy an i3 and run Intel graphics on a cheap motherboard with 8GB of RAM. A gamer will likely buy an i5 or i7 k...

    How about connecting to a thunderbolt-capable motherboard to see if if it's a problem with thunderbolt or Apple's implementation of it?

    I've actually disabled swap with seemingly no ill effects. I have 8GB of RAM and usually sit around 1.5-2.0GB usage under normal conditions.
  9. What I've often wondered is if any additional...

    What I've often wondered is if any additional tweaks are needed when running an SSD with 12.04. Seems to be a lot of conflicting information out there as to what to do to "preserve life" and...
  10. I'm not the original poster of this, but 4 player...

    I'm not the original poster of this, but 4 player MP is a joke. When people saw that, it was a huge disappointment. It might as well have not existed when you consider Q2 and Q3A were so good at MP....
  11. My only gripe with Software Center is that it...

    My only gripe with Software Center is that it doesn't appear to be version specific, or at least the apps aren't. Too often you can download something that just doesn't work with the current point...

    I used to love ID's work about 2 decades ago (I played Q2 MP incessantly for almost a decade). Today, I often forget they are out still out there. It doesn't matter who they support if they can't...
  13. If an Air is the same price as a comperable...

    If an Air is the same price as a comperable ultrabook, I would probably get the Air. Apples hardware is pretty nice, and then you could run pretty much any OS out there.

    All that aside, I'm...

    I believe Vista's new driver model took OpenGL support and moved it inside of DirectX. People believed it was a natural course in reducing its use. It was sad,as I remember going from Win98 to NT4...

    I like the comments about how their work in Linux helped them improve their Windows and OS X ports of the game.

    Unfortunately, Valve just changed their steam policy to prevent users from...

    I don't understand a word he said, but as a Sandy Bridge notebook user, I say :D

    Believe it or not, businesses can actually make money by taking care of the customer. EA's crappy attitude toward the customer is short-sighted and I don't think it's sustainable.

    Better yet, remove autohide and you get a more OSX-like experience instead:

    I'm curious how well it works with the min-max-close buttons on the right? I guess maximized windows just push them left?

    Also, I guess you would do this to run unity on newer kernels? Otherwise,...
