    Indeed disks are sold in GB's to make them look bigger, but Windows counts GiB's even though it displays GB.

    I just built a computer with a 500GB Seagate harddisk and the number of bytes as...

    The NVIDIA chips that feature VP2 are: G84, G86, G92, G94, G96, GT200 - you can see in lspci if your card is one of those.

    They are usually called NV84, NV86, NV92, NV94, NV96, NVA0 at nouveau,...

    You're mentioning ALC268 codec support here, but my laptop with ALC268 has already worked right all the way down to 2.6.35 and maybe even further back (never used any older kernel on it).

    Please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86-64 for a description of the x86-64 instruction set (known as AMD 64 because it was invented by AMD).

    You're right that not all firmwares have been freed yet, this is only about firmware for USB devices so far, not about the PCI(e) cards. (In the case of AR928x bridged to USB with an AR7010 chip,...

    @ Michael: I think you should make clear that this is about USB devices, not the normal PCI(e) wireless products from Atheros. Also these USB devices use the ath9k_htc driver instead of ath9k.

    Powerful for the low resolutions that mobile devices use indeed, but this Steam Box will likely be often connected to Full HD TVs.

    Also the article mentions Optimus, but I don't think the Steam...

    On desktop motherboards, certainly. You can put your own AMD or NVIDIA graphics card in the PCIe x16 slot.

    I once used Linux to backup documents from a laptop with non-hybrid Radeon HD 3650 (Acer...

    Well, on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Intel_graphics_processing_units it's easy to look up the right names.

    While you maybe can't optimize for Core2 for compatibility reasons, it is certainly safe to enable use of SSE and SSE2 in 32-bit i965. This optimization could perhaps be done.

    There are indeed...

    Windows 8 is not preinstalled, so it doesn't need Secure Boot. Even if it were available, it wouldn't be enabled by default to allow people to install Windows 7 or XP. It's really not a problem to...

    You would probably need to mention that IGPs generally have less problems being clocked up to usable levels because the Nouveau driver does not need to set the memory clock (the GPU only uses system...

    It should be noted that clockspeeds as low as 50MHz do not occur on all Fermi cards. Many 4xx and 5xx models have a newer revision that has more decent clockspeeds by default. If you would buy a 460...

    That you can't do this yet is a limitation of the X Server and not of the binary or open drivers. It is possible to run a separate X server and maybe with some tweaking Xinerama (so no 3D...

    In this topic I have seens some reports of impressive open-source performance. I think it is indeed true that the Gallium drivers are quite fast, but... not everybody is as lucky as you when it comes...

    Ubuntu's multiarch setup works ok for Skype's 32-bit DEBs, maybe openSUSE also has something like multiarch.

    I think you can just disable GLXVBlank in xorg.conf (Option "GLXVBlank" "False"), which is probably in the Device section.

    Seems like you're running a 32-bit Windows program in Wine. You would need the 32-bit version of the package as well, which you can see in the repository as :i386.
