    I actually started a very similar thread on the Wayland mailing list a couple of years ago: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/wayland-devel/2010-November/000080.html

    The general concensus...

    +1 on all the stuff on packaging (well, on everything, but packaging in particular), I wish everyone just used .deb and be done with it.

    Luke.

    Agreed. Honestly Phoronix seems to be getting more and more like a tabloid - what's next, phone hacking? :p

    .x is the 3D model format baked into the D3D API. So what this means is that programs that load 3D models from .x won't require Windows DLLs to run any more.

    Michael, any chance we can get some links to the sources without having to fumble through several other Phoronix posts to get to them? Cheers.

    P.S. It would be amazing if external links were a...

    The short-sightedness of some companies is baffling...

    1. Support Linux (with open specs and drivers)
    2. Increase potential uses for your chipsets
    3. Profit!

    How hard is it?
  8. How come the open source drivers perform so...

    How come the open source drivers perform so poorly in comparison to Catalyst? I mean, obviously they are in development still and so lower performance is expected. But is there a concrete...

    And you know this based on what evidence?

    I personally think it's very likely that they were working on a Linux client, because of the leaked stuff. And I'd like to believe it's still on the...

    Yeah, I think they are making a big mistake there. Mainly for two reasons:

    1. There is no reliable way to determine who is downloading stuff (IP doesn't indicate a specific user) and innocent...

    This whole thing has done just one thing. It confirmed my belief that I should never ever pay for anything containing DRM. It just shows that even if you have GOOD intentions, DRM just hurts the...

    That was Bryce Harrington, he's Canonical's X guy. I wouldn't be surprised if he is working on making it work for Ubuntu already

    It's early days. If it looks like there is going to be a massive shift from X to Wayland across Linux distros then Nvidia will develop drivers for it.

    It's incredibly unlikely to happen, what about OSX? Android? They have Flash implementations too, Adobe would be frankly off their head to expose the D3D API directly. The case in point is that even...

    I think the moment that Gnash/Lightspark reach *near* feature parity with Adobe's Flash then browsers like Chrome and Firefox will implement it as a built-in plugin. When/if that happens Adobe could...

    You know, I wish you'd stop shoving in that D3D State Tracker into every possible article. Unless Wine adopts it (unlikely in the near future) it's really not worth talking about.

    You even...

    Total rubbish. OpenGL/OpenAL/SDL/FreeType etc. are all cross-platform and pretty much completely backwards compatible with older versions. In fact one of GLs criticisms has always been it's backwards...

    This doesn't really mean anything.

    Basically, if your aim is to run Windows games on Linux, you still have to go through Wine as D3D only forms a small part of a game.

    This new state tracker...

    As this is likely a digital download I don't think copy protection is gonna help, or is at all necessary any more.

    I honestly think the future for PC game distribution is something like GOG.com....
