    That seems an odd thing to say. PHP is almost twenty years old, and most of it's flaws aren't due to quirks of the author - they're because they seemed like good ideas back at the time when building...

    Well yes, PNG compresses too. But JPEG is a format that's specifically optimised for *photos*. It's not a general-purpose image format, but for the case it's designed for, it's hard to beat...

    Sure, just wave a magic wand, and everything will be exactly as you want. What, you don't have one of those?

    PNG and JPEG are designed for different purposes. In particular, JPEG uses lossy compression, which is generally fine for photos, where perfect accuracy of every pixel isn't critical. In contrast,...

    You're reducing it to an either/or scenario - it's either modular, or not. Notice that I'm (repeatedly) not saying that modular is bad - only that there's such a things as being *too* modular. Taken...
  6. You misunderstand. I'm not saying you have to...

    You misunderstand. I'm not saying you have to live with every change, that you should just accept them as they come - I'm saying you'll achieve nothing by standing in front of a runaway train and...
  7. Change. That's the one thing you should always...

    Change. That's the one thing you should always count on. The world doesn't stand still, just because some people like things the way they are.

    And I don't mean that as a slight against the...
  8. And you think this *disproves* my claim that...

    And you think this *disproves* my claim that modularity adds complexity? Now you have three interfaces instead of one, and calling code having to do type-checking to work out which capabilities it...
  9. Well, if you live in a perfect world, perhaps....

    Well, if you live in a perfect world, perhaps. But practically speaking, we don't. Modularity is a useful tool, but nothing more, and it's a hindrance as often as a help. All those little modules,...
  10. Not better, but possibly easier. Modularity...

    Not better, but possibly easier. Modularity sounds great in theory, having lots of small well-tested components - until you realise that those components make up about 10% of the codebase, and that...

    A lot more than a year.... they've been focusing more on the Wayland port in the past year, but there's been background work going on for several years before that.

    In part, at least, some of the...

    What kind of stupid shit is it? Made up shit, that's what kind. You're spouting nonsense, since everything you've just said is absolutely untrue. GTK3 *supports* client-side decorations, but it...

    Last time I had that problem, it was a poorly placed cable hanging close enough to brush against the CPU fan... :(
  15. Pretty much, though the intention of the...

    Pretty much, though the intention of the developers is that it should be implemented as a plugin on top of DNF, rather than putting those hardcoded exceptions into DNF itself. Apparently, it's all...

    The site *is* pretty unclear, but the way I read it, it's supposed to be a process-manager daemon like upstart or systemd - just a very, very minimal one designed for embedded use. On their...

    Most of the changes are invisible to the user, since DNF is *mostly* compatible with Yum. It's essentially a rewrite of the code with several objectives - to make it quicker and more efficient, to...

    Not at all weird. You seem to think that code just keeps working if you don't touch it, but that's nonsense - if they've changed anything else about how audio is managed, the ALSA code will likely...

    Gosh, and who'd have thought that someone from a game development background might be interested in being able to reliably support high-end gamers?

    In the sense that Windows has a mechanism for creating un-fakeable authentication prompts, yes. But that's not a bad thing... it's a valuable feature, something that needs to be implemented at the...
