    Cross-platform consistency is not a good reason for a bad experience on 2/3 platforms.

    Pretty much and unfortunately there has been no increase in measurable Linux use since the arrival of Ubuntu, either. Fortunately in the last few months alone Android has done a much better job in...

    2d OSS drivers working by default in fedora 13 for anyone that is interested. At the current rate of development it looks like 3d OSS drivers will be ready for F14.
  4. It seems as you have been unable to come up with...

    It seems as you have been unable to come up with any counterpoints that replying to you is pretty futile. If you want to show this model to be viable I suggest you try it and come back. I seriously...

    They took the code, taking advantage of the already existing code and gave a little back. A massive overwhelming majority of development is kept proprietary. To the extent that darwin, on it's own,...

    You still fail to see the point. If at any point you became successful all future projects would become entirely proprietary at the behest of shareholders. There is no incentive to your model. It...

    F/OSS web browsers seem to be doing fine, considering market share.


    As it is often chosen over proprietary software in many markets, this is false. I say this as someone who works in a field...

    Oh, please we both know this isn't always the case. Do you want 20 video players that "mostly work" or one that works really, really well? Do you want a horrendous mess of an audio stack (Linux,...

    Finally! I've been waiting for this since they bought On2. It seemed really suspicious buying them right after html 5 spec was changed. I'm glad I wasn't just putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5.

    I don't think you understood my comment.
    I'm talking about that business model more than the licence. What is the point of a licence like MIT that gives so much freedom when all the development is...

    I'm responding to the article rather than the comments.

    The business model seems viable. I think it certainly has potential for profit. However it does not seem desirable if software freedom is a...

    This. My experience of fglrx at least in pure performance terms has been pretty much identical on Linux/Windows.

    I'm sure Michael gets it. No one likes ads but lets be realistic here.

    Ars Technica, one of the most popular tech sites ever, tried a purely "premium subscriber"-based approach. Even with a large...

    I laughed too :x I like the idea of supporting sites like Phoronix with ad revenue in principle but there are simply too many intrusive adverts (as seen above, though not intentional - but this kind...

    I too am sick of the grey. It at least needs some texture; the current default KDE theme looks like a boundless sea of grey. Making everything blend into a massive solid block of colour should be a...

    14.4mbps for the video is well within the current standard of ~40mbps. It isn't even half.

    It isn't a huge bitrate. The current standard goes almost three times higher.


    100mbps would make...

    Reading the phoronix interview with nvidia I got the impression it was more "no that costs us money, time & effort" / "you aren't important enough"
