    Even Intel asked for Mantle documentation and AMD told them to take a long walk off a short pier.

    If Intel can't get it yet there's no way Mesa devs are going to get it.
  2. From the various sources out there it looks like...

    From the various sources out there it looks like Intel has about 90% of the server / workstation market.

    So even more than the desktop.

    Your idea of how things are may be skewed by your...

    "In a multi-crypto test."

    And a $200 i5 buries it in every other test.

    Come on, let's not sugar-coat it here. AMD CPUs are not selling not because they're the best secret in hardware.
  4. He was talking about the very same segment you...

    He was talking about the very same segment you were bragging about: $100 - $500 chips.

    Xeon marketshare blows Opteron out of the water. I think we see who the clear winner is there. I'm not...

  6. It's not necessarily about the process advantage,...

    It's not necessarily about the process advantage, which is becoming less important as the shrinks get less. Intel has much, much better architectures than AMD. That's where AMD is getting killed.

    I'm not sure that's a major opinion-swayer though. Their x86 business isn't competitive with Intel's, and AMD historically had subpar drivers on Windows as well (probably not now though), so people...

    A lot of that "ability" is just nothing more than the strength that comes from being the established market leader, much as we see with MS and Intel in their own industries. It's just a human...

    IOW, it's mostly political. It's not a meritocracy. Which most sophisticated people who understand how the world works recognize that reality.
  10. It's interesting how this criticism only has...

    It's interesting how this criticism only has traction against Canonical around here. GNOME, RedHat, systemd, and other open source projects always seem to be exempt from this standard.
  11. In fairness there's a lot more going on there...

    In fairness there's a lot more going on there than just Mir. They're basically re-writing the desktop in Qt and removing all the GNOME crap.

    At least that's my understanding.

    I really don't understand the hard-on for Apple that so many in the general Linux world have. Some even here on the forums, too.

    When they were nothing more than a bothersome flea I could...

    Why not just run Catalyst then or get a supported video card (nvidia)?

    But there are only a total of like four games on Linux. :p

    Semiaccurate is usually not very accurate.

    The guy makes some nebulous claim and then two months later comes back and says, "See! It's just like I told ya!"

    This reminds me of when they essentially dropped Android support on Linux.

    If anything they should be using their influence to push an open-source, royalty free flash FS on the market.

    I would figure that ChromeOS would by far be the #1 consumer distro out there.

    Any time somebody makes something as complex as a GPU, they're always going to be doomed to face unpleasant situations. I'm sure making their Windows driver is no bowl of rainbows either. Have you...

    I am part of the 0.0001% and the fact that I had to go in to Jockey and enable the nvidia drivers after install and then reboot was not a major inconvenience for me, and hasn't made me any less...

    Yeah and 0.0001% of people boot from a live CD or install their own OS.

    I'm sure nvidia's pocketbook is hurting big-time.
