    No argument. I have a problem with it purely on the grounds of it being nonsensical, technical merits aside. Hence my joke. Did you know Apple's PPC-era Open Firmware used ELF?

    As for use with...

    I thought I was pretty clear when I set up a joke of the form:

    "They're nothing. They only rule one island!"
    "You're an idiot. They clearly rule two islands... and we only rule seven continents....

    You obviously don't know what you're talking about. :p PE is the executable format of Windows and the UEFI firmware system, now used for all Windows-compatible PCs.

    It's not an attempt to suck up to the OSS community. They only open-sourced the bits used for running .NET-based servers. As with most of their other contributions to Linux, they're scrambling to...

    In that case, why not try an extension that allows you to enable a "single-window browsing mode"? It's been a while, but if Tab Mix Plus is still around, it'd probably fit your needs.

    As for the...

    Electrolysis or e10s for short. They've had support for a chrome/content process split in nightly builds for quite a while (to the point where there's an "Open new non-e10s window" option in the...

    I vaguely remember "partial" just meaning that they only implemented the parts YouTube actually used, rather than features that would be used for... say... some kind of in-browser non-linear video...

    Of course, that could always be fixed via something like Megabyte's Dual-BIOS where you have a jumper on the mobo, a primary BIOS in EEPROM and a recovery BIOS in ROM that can be used to un-brick the...

    I'm not sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing for me, personally.

    On the one hand, I've wanted to switch my Soekris box to something more featureful for a while. On the other hand,...

    It's a bit more complicated than that:

    1. Sun bought StarOffice and open-sourced it while still selling a StarOffice-branded version as a value-add (similar to Mozilla Suite and Netscape 6.0+).

    They decided "nah... let's not do that" because it wasn't being received well. Same problem as with IPv6. When you don't provide an incremental migration path, you're setting yourself up for an...

    I said for native Linux applications. My point is that, at present, I often have a better experience running Windows games inside Wine on Linux than their native Linux versions because certain...

    Now if only we could get a Windows/Wine-style joystick control panel for the native Linux desktop.

    I had to order a USB hub with per-port power switches from Hong Kong to stop games from ignoring...

    I wish there was a "systematic effort to attack GNU packages". Maybe musl-libc would have attained full glibc ABI compatibility by now.

    The sooner we can produce a workable, ABI-compatible distro...

    Intel's a big company. Not all departments have an equal interest in Linux.

    Due in no small part to the "backwards compatible with static PNG files" part.

    1. By design, any APNG file is also a valid static PNG file, just like every animated GIF is also a valid static GIF....

    Here's hoping it'll gain Oculus Rift support eventually. That'd really be interesting.

    Better, but I still prefer to leave my options open in ways AGPL complicates and I'm still not a big fan of the Java experience on a system where the firmware, nVidia binary drivers, Flash, Dropbox,...

    AGPL3, written in Java, and no apparent effort to act as a porting aid for an existing RPG Maker version? No wonder it never came to my attention before.
