    I welcome competition. Whether Mir is awesome or horrible compared to Wayland, it lets engineers try new things. That's the essence of competition and the open source landscape, so I welcome it. I...

    Gentoo use this now :)

    And by the way, I am also Eric G...small world. You make great posts; been a Phoronix reader and forum dweller for quite awhile now.

    If Sony bothered to add OpenCL support to it, the learning curve would go way down. But instead they decided to throw their $3 billion investment in the garbage. :(

    I think the IDEA was an awesome...

    I'd argue it was a dead platform when they announced it was "599 US dollars". I was a huge PS3 hater at first due to it being mostly a shitshow, but I tried to keep an open mind. My opinion changed...

    I'll certainly agree with you there (I said I didn't think they were a good company). I wasn't planning on writing a Wikipedia entry on my opinions of Apple. :p
  10. The fact that you automatically assume I'm a...

    The fact that you automatically assume I'm a macbook user because I had nice things to say about it shows that you view life very black and white. I would actually never buy a Macbook for myself...

    I do, however, agree with your notion that the OS X user interface is not very good. It certainly LOOKS good, but functionality-wise, it's frustrating to use.
  12. Wow there are lot of non-sensical,...

    Wow there are lot of non-sensical, unsubstantiated claims in the last post. Apple makes nice hardware, thus the government employees want to use it. Why does that have to be some sort of conspiracy?...
  13. Why the hell is it that people can't judge...

    Why the hell is it that people can't judge products based on their merit instead of on colloquial perception?

    Overall, Apple makes great hardware. They really do. Look at the iPad 3; GPU-wise,...

    Good find.

    Overall, I'm expecting ARM computers to really come into their own when they hit 8+ A15 cores with at least quad-channel memory controllers (since individual memory controllers tend to...
  15. const, the fact that you keep saying "high-end...

    const, the fact that you keep saying "high-end x86 cpu" instead of the actual model number makes me doubt your claims. furthermore, your comparison of ARM and Cell are pretty off-base because you're...

    Pretty sure the kush will win every benchmark :cool:

    I took "Computer Hardware Design" in the Fall of 2004, and my professor was a senior design engineer on PowerPC at IBM. His name was Pra-something (sorry, it's been a long time) Kudva. I would talk...

    Thanks for clarifying; much appreciated. I thought the main core was single-threaded. You learn something new every day.

    As for why the PS3 wins in some tests, it most likely has to do with the fact that it has a huge advantage in memory (RAM) bandwidth. Its RAM runs at 3.2 GHz!

    Has anyone managed to fully hack a...

    Comparing the ARM system to the PS3 is absolute nonsense. Not only is the PS3 running a linux distro from THREE YEARS ago versus the ARM system on the latest kernel/gcc, it has to do everything...
