    This sounds more like a con than a pro. But this could be just me.
    With N=2 this is not more complex than handling N different desktop environments. With N >= 5 (Gnome, Mate, Cinnamon, KDE, XFCE,...
  2. Sounds stupid.

    First, can't they have an installation option?
    At installation time you can choose which init system you want.
    Or can't we have two Debian flavors (sysvinit and systemd) if the differences are too...

    Typo

    "The speed of C"
  4. Re: Wtf!

    From Google point of view, that change attempt was just political. Not technical.

    What do you mean "rename a volume"? In Linux this can have a few different meanings.

    Changing the mount...

    I was just arguing why mentioning/defending/supporting EXT2 in modern times along with ChromeOS, floppies and old small thumb drives: those cases are so close to zero that you can say they are...

    EXT4 has a non-journaled mode. No excuse to be still using EXT2 with those pesky limitations...

    Do they use ChromeOS? Can they afford ChromeOS?
    Come on!
  8. Wtf!

    I understand the rage fox EXT4.
    I can imagine that EXT3 can be still in use.
    But, for the sake of Zarquon, how many people is still using EXT2?

    ... Just like a project about coding a new OS for the PDP-11.
    It'd be as interesting as useless but for those who own actual working hardware.
    I wouldn't ad such a project on Phoronix!
    This is...
  10. But the real question is

    Which hardware is actually supported by coreboot?:confused:
    I wish I could boot my netbooks, notebooks and a couple of servers by HP off coreboot.
    But so far, there is almost nothing currently in...
  11. Ever heard about Wt?

    I will hardly move away from Wt.
    It's much more mature, better documented. And it works!
  12. Bravo!

    It seems it comes from Italy: it'd be the "Renzi effect"!
  13. I think this is your main issue, my friend. If...

    I think this is your main issue, my friend.
    If you are a technician, you really know what actually works and what doesn't. And every other technician would agree with you.
    But when it comes to...

    Hi Ahmad.
    I think I am in an even worse situation than yours. I am Italian, living in Italy. Full stop. :-)
    Nonetheless, I live in that crazy world where PI equals to 3.1415926535..., "while( TRUE...

    Buzzwording again?

    Maybe I am wrong, but unless KDE is being ported soon to Qt v5.3 or Ubuntu people is jumping into that, which part of Ubuntu will benefit from this targeting?
    Marketing!
    Canonical is not even...
  16. Breaking news!

    Great improvements in the concrete formula used for Launch Pad 39A have been shown to the world on July 20, 1969.
    And, by the way, some time later Apollo 11 successfully reached the moon with three...
  17. Come on, Michael!!!

    I understand you need to drive more traffic on this website. Business is business! Granted.
    But leveraging on the word "Windows" is really funny! For a website like this!
    Your title focuses on...

    It's all about taste, philisophy and, in general, subjective considerations

    The only unbiased objective evaluations come, IMO, from numbers.
    Define what "a good framework" is and how to measure it.
    Then measure both Qt and GTK+ and finally compare the results. 1 is less...
  19. They will hardly succeed

    At least sounds scary to me: dynamically changing execution paths at the kernel level.
    Anything that could go wrong, will gain new interesting ways to badly fail.
    In my opinion.

    New?

    I see the same old design and layout. I see different fonts and, maybe, a slightly different nuance of green. That'd be it.
    I wouldn't call it a "new site design", in my opinion, just a light make...
