  1. I remember. I was sad to see efforts to maintain...

    I remember. I was sad to see efforts to maintain compatibility with newer versions didn't keep pace. Not knowing the technical specifics, I don't understand why. Seems like I remember reading that...
  2. iTunes?

    Anyone that follow WINE closely know how close they're getting to iTunes support? There's been more than a few people that were great candidates for Linux but for iTunes and dual booting or...
  3. I get it, I'm just saying there should be a way...

    I get it, I'm just saying there should be a way even if there's some new construct for inline SQL processing such that adding a second line isn't necessary.
  4. I disagree. PDO was quite the quantum leap for...

    I disagree. PDO was quite the quantum leap for PHP DB handling, but I've found it a bit muddled and the documentation lacking. Moreover, in order to make it work really well, you have to build in...
  5. Whether you hate one or both as a matter of OSS...

    Whether you hate one or both as a matter of OSS principle or whatever, this isn't an event targeted to you at all. This is for businesses and it's not insignificant. When you're a business betting...

    I think it's great that gamers are getting more attention since generally the three biggest obstacles to new OS adoption are inertia, productivity software and games. While WINE is helping to some...

    I'm primarily in the "as long as it works and works well" camp, but if the "log files are binary" is true, now THAT seems a bit of a pain. But given that I just don't have any experience trying to...
  8. I check the Radeon feature list on x.org...

    I check the Radeon feature list on x.org periodically and the TODO boxes are getting fewer and fewer. Some have been in WIP or MOSTLY for quite a while. Are there any thoughts from AMD folks on how...

    Umm -- the power management on the OS drivers still causes at least some chipsets to get WAAAAY too hot. I mean as in uncomfortable to touch your laptop near your heat exhaust. It turns your laptop...

    Whatever you might think of what's going on in...

    Whatever you might think of what's going on in the desktop space, the server version is a different animal. The LTS versions are really really nice.

    Not sure if Spotify is paying for support. If...

    It's been at least a year since I last gave Arch a whirl, but I did NOT find this to be the case. At all. I'm not a Linux noob and have run and managed various distros for quite a few years. But my...
  12. I find the intra-distro comparisons most...

    I find the intra-distro comparisons most interesting (i.e. 12.04 vs 14.04) to see how newer features and configurations are impacting raw performance on certain tasks in default configurations. I'm...
  13. Add me to the list of people that think Unity 7...

    Add me to the list of people that think Unity 7 is pretty terrible at stability by Linux standards. It's pretty normal by Windows standards, but I don't think that's a bar Linux should strive to...

    Because yours does too -- i.e. "If you AREN'T getting ready to buy a new phone".

    You can't carve out one group from a whole and argue it negates the other group which is what your argument is...
  15. With HDMI inputs on TVs and adapters for phones,...

    With HDMI inputs on TVs and adapters for phones, it's really a waste of time when people want their media on the go anyway.



    If you're already getting ready to buy a new phone and Ubuntu is an...
  16. The key difference is that there is already an...

    The key difference is that there is already an established user base for Ubuntu. It is clearly up for debate as to whether or not that translates into a viable mobile market. I think anyone that says...
  17. I have an HD 4950 that I bought years ago for...

    I have an HD 4950 that I bought years ago for exactly the same reason -- to reward AMD. I've been waiting and waiting for the open drivers to approach some semblance of parity with the catalyst...
  18. Umm, no. Just ... no. This might be true for...

    Umm, no. Just ... no.

    This might be true for people that use it as an integral part of calculations, but not for other common and very benign things such as quicker and easier filtering of data on...

    People said similar things about Android (timing). I seem to recall not completely dissimilar discussions about Apple given that Blackberry had such a strangle on the smart phone market at the time....

    Pre-4.2 was ALL open source except for the QVM and the game assets (art, maps, etc.). "Game Logic" makes it sound like more than it is. There was a push in years past to get the QVM code released....
