    Yeah, none of this makes any difference for patents. Companies can choose how and on whom they enforce their patents. Whether you must pay fees is at the discretion of the patent holder. They can...

    This is not thinking like a sane person. This is thinking like a retarded monkey. If anyone can add legally binding clauses to UNSOLICITED mail they send out, we would be living in fucking chaos.

    What a typical phoronix thread. An unsubstaniated comment about a distribution accepted as fact to fuel nerdrage
  4. yeah, once again that's a feature of the toolkit,...

    yeah, once again that's a feature of the toolkit, not the app. The app isn't written to run against X or Wayland, it is written against GTK, and you can pass parameters that ANY GTK app will accept....

    I think the point is that applications don't write against the display server, they write against the toolkit. Apps don't have an X or Wayland backend, they use whatever the toolkit library has been...

    1) It's impossible to know if you are buying a "good motherboard". Most reviews don't cover everything about a motherboard, and you don't know what problems will come up you run the thing

    The 3.3 release was always going to be fairly unambitious. The focus was on setting the project up, and getting an initial working release out the door. It's only in the next few releases when...

    What code isn't owned by Oracle?

    All contributors to OOo needed to sign a copyright assignment agreement. That's one of the main reasons OOo development was so slow.

    Oracle are now free to do...

    You are mixing up completely unrelated things.

    Lindows was a TRADEMARK dispute. And it is pretty obvious to be honest. I can't start a shoe company called Seebok, nor a softdrink company called...

    IBM couldn't care less about desktop issues. The patent has no value to them.

    Well Arch is volunteer run and and pretty much a hobby distro.

    The chances of them being targeted by a law suit are pretty minimal. There is no benefit gained in suing Arch Linux

    This game really needs some marketing outside of phoronix.

    Once again, I would recommend rockpapershotgun, who have a good history of supporting indie and smaller budget titles, and are focused...

    Normally people (like myself) complain if they are unhappy with the article.

    So, this time I'd like to say that this was a good article. You provided some useful explanations, and also linked to...

    Your post is not nearly as confronting as you think it is.

    Michael's reporting of graphics and hardware issues is pretty good. He is the only guy who really covers the graphics stack and X...

    Right.

    And if you actually read what I wrote, I said their POSITION concerning h264. Namely, their position that h264 should be adopted as a web standard, which would basically kill any...

    Your risk of being sued is probably close to zero. Seriously, it's not in SGI's interest to sue "users" offering this code in their repositories. Have you seen any third party repos being sued by...

    Right, so you expect Gary Newman to port the entire Source engine to Linux on his own? Are you fucking daft?

    Plus, he's right. You are stupid if you think that there is a Linux version of GMod...

    People don't believe you Michael because there has been no official word.

    People don't trust you about it because you have been completely disingenuous. You said it was OFFICIAL that Steam was...
