    How the fuck would the GPL have made a difference? Practically all code in OpenSolaris belongs to Oracle. If they chose not to release any source code, they'll simply do so. GPL or CDDL. And if...

    The project leaders listed on the site are the Nexenta guys. I guess, if someone starts a community distro, this is currently the best way how.

    Of course, this'll only work as long as Oracle keeps...

    Benchmarks can be as synthetic as they get, but if it can't keep up with what's already there, it has a long road ahead.

    I might not have any bandwidth and latency sensitive applications here, I...

    Needs a little more actual evidence to make me even consider switching back. Oracle's hush hush approach is the wrong way for an open source project.

    To shit on this current ongoing discussion, OpenSolaris implemented interrupt-free audio a few builds ago. And it works just fine.

    And even if not, since...

    I don't see how a wrapper increases latency, since it's simply said just abstracting APIs. No buffering of any audio. Any buffers are residing in the game's own mixer, which would be present in...

    I've temporarily given up after over three years of OpenSolaris. It's Fedora for now.

    I don't see how audio is an issue. Practically all newer and not so newer games resort to software mixing anyway.

    The only capabilities a game needs to have access to is the ability to set an...

    The reason why a large majority of the *nix world has a hard-on for C and dislikes C++ is because former has a stable ABI and latter doesn't.

    Unless the C compiler you're using is broken, you can...
