    How many complex devices that need firmware actually have open source firmware?
  2. Optical drives already are gone in many thin and...

    Optical drives already are gone in many thin and cheap laptops. And many already don't have VGA connectors. You don't need deprecation of the support from the chipset to stop using the features.

    Tell that to the KNOX bootloader on my S4 which prevents not only flashing custom ROMs, but downgrading to legitimate official past version ROMs.

    I'm against the non-init-system parts of systemd, and I'm capable of writing pretty good code (it's my job after all). That doesn't mean I have enough free time to reimplement yet another init...

    Why does an init system need to cache DNS in the first place?

    Didn't Khronos announce that the "next generation" OpenGL will come with its own new IR? If that's true, there's little point reinventing new placeholder IRs at this time.

    Why does Gallium have nothing to do with the discussion? It shouldn't be hard to write a state tracker for the next gen OpenGL for Gallium, but I doubt you'll see the performance benefits compared to...

    Gallium3D

    All this talk about reducing API overhead by removing abstractions, and nobody has asked how Gallium3D is affected by this? I'd imagine that Gallium might get in the way of implementing the next-gen...

    Can they not co-exist in the same repository?
  11. It's not exactly simple either, given the sheer...

    It's not exactly simple either, given the sheer volume of code and the rate at which it changes. It's practically a full time job to audit the whole lot.

    If that's the case, then you don't have time to be troubleshooting your main production system either.
  13. There is more to the source tree than just .h and...

    There is more to the source tree than just .h and .c files. I think there's some python in there as well, plus they might be including documentation, makefiles etc as well in the line count.

    If the article is about an ARM dev board, why is the picture of a Titan Black? This leads to a very misleading facebook feed entry.

    Got any games in mind? Tux Racer has been ported to Windows. I believe the KDE games have also been ported. In fact I can't think of a Linux game off the top of my head that isn't available on...

    If you're not sticking with the same version and only changing the VRAM pressure patches, you're testing it wrong.
  17. At what point do they realise it'll be...

    At what point do they realise it'll be better/cheaper/faster to just give up on Mir and go back to Wayland? With a project as controversial as this (and with all the delays) do they really want to...

    Wait, what? I thought journald was supposed to be a drop in replacement for syslog. Now they're saying apps have to be ported to the new logging system?

    Out of interest, what does CIK stand for?

    It's not too surprising the R7 260X did so poorly as it's GCN 1.1 hardware. I'd be surprised if the 7790, R9 290 and R9 290X didn't have similar issues.
