    You need to write special code to make use of that hardware anyway. So this only has a benefit over a GPGPU if you need double-precisions support. A ~ 1Teraflop GPGPU costs 100-150 USD and these...

    Theoretically in a higher-level language, strings comming into the program from the outside could be a different type than normal (trusted) strings. I am however not aware of anyone doing this with...

    (emphasis mine)

    The difference is that the runtimes will be shipped (at least nearly) directly to user by the runtime vendor. Thus the repackaging work does not have to be done once per...

    A .deb must be installed as root (and most .run files too), and can do whatever it wants with your entire system. It is not, and will never be, safe to install .debs from untrusted sources. It is...

    There could be several GNOME_FOO_X runtimes, or runtime named MY_HOBBIT_Y which would contain roughly the same software but repackaged by to be more awesome. However each application (version) must...

    Assuming you use a tarball which has prebuilt configure script and that you don't need to patch any of the .am or .ac files. (or old .in). Then you'll need to dig up automake_1_10 or whatever.

    If you read the article again, you will see that for many things Gallium3d does have them. And one of the devs states it would be easy to add more for the cases where it currently does not.

    psychoticmeow: It is completely fine to call out bullshit arguments, but don't make it personal. Personal attacks does not benefit the discussion, the person under attack, or you.

    I do not feel it. And feelings are not good arguments in a discussion.

    Also, if your line of argument is "the problems this solution attempts to solve is invalid, hence the solution is invalid", you should be specific about which problems you consider invalid, and why....

    Current thinking is that sandboxed applications will be developed against a profile, containing a set of libraries and services that must be present on system claiming to support this profile. These...

    Yes, if using "needs_root_rights = auto" /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config. But this only works for non-graphical login and is thus not enabled by default yet - so this new article is a bit early. It only...

    I tested very quickly:
    GTK_THEME=Raleigh eog
    GTK_THEME=Adwaita:dark eog
    GTK_THEME=Adwaita eog

    It looks like Raleigh is around 18.5MB and Adwaita around 20MB resident. Shared is ~13MB for both.
