    Very slow here

    I have a pretty fast internet connection, on a very fast machine, from the SF East Bay, CA. I just tested, and it took about 25 seconds to load openbenchmarking, the first load of this article en...

    Yes an yes. I have two chromebooks at home: one runs crouton, which breaks now and then when chrome updates. And I have another (much newer) haswell celeron, dual booting Ubuntu. But getting that to...

    Well, please speak for yourself, my friend :D. I also dislike NVidia's support, but I vote with my wallet. I mostly buy Intel (best Open Source support, everything works). But I recently built a low...

    It's funny, because, I would make the opposite argument: because I already use multiple devices, and all of them work with the cloud, including (in my case) using Google's servers for storage and...
  6. Am I the only one?

    I just went through the thread. It looks like the common theme is to argue around the bloat, and how much it matters (or doesn't). Me? I need a simple desktop, and I want something that doesn't look...

    You beat me to the question! Does anybody have any info? Thanks!
  9. What's the big deal? Really?

    I really wonder why is everybody going 'no big deal':


    For mobile processors, considerably less power at modestly better performance is huge: you either get better battery life or a lighter...
  10. Fantastic!

    Thank you, Michael, this is so exciting! It would be lovely to compare with (mobile) Haswell, particularly for the tests where there is, already, parity with the Windows drivers, so the optimizations...

    If you actually read the Google+ thread, this new development doesn't make it easier to load Linux distros. It just makes it easier to boot ChromeOS images from USB.

    I recently got an HP...

    Ok, besides the parity to Windows, I think the big news is that we finally see some improvements in Haswell graphics (after several months of flat performance, really good, but no changes with kernel...

    I bought a couple Amazon (Kindle Fire) tablets in the past. Big mistake. They run Android, but Amazon went out of their way to make the Fire a closed platform. You can't install Google Play, you...

    The release is way too close to include new packages, but OTOH, these are all...

    I think you are missing the point, the problem is that flashing from an OS is riskier, not that it is is harder.

    I'll have to agree as well. Just let me download the image, put it on a usb disk, and let me flash from the BIOS, nice and simple, why would you need a GUI or an OS running for this? The only variant...

    Ha, they got all of the overhead, and none of the benefits! But this is early code.

    Seriously, today we have the Hurd which sounds great from a design standpoint great but has made no progress,...

    These integrated GPU's are awesome, and you can play games, including 3D, assuming you are ok playing at lower resolutions and losing some detail. They are definitely not a gamer's dream, but my kids...
  19. Python?

    Michael, I actually always wondered, not why you use a scripting language, but rather why it wasn't Python. The one benefit of PHP, that I see now, is the use of a browser-centric GUI.

    I just hope the Landlord isn't reading this :)

    I am looking just for a solution like this for my Living room, but I really don't want to have cables hanging down. So, the cost of the mount will be...
