    The thing that really bothered me here is the request to percolate time stamps up the directory tree. This seems like an exceedingly bad idea to me. If one leaf in a tree updates and the time...

    Wow, two pages of massive negativity here! This is a step in the right direction folks, that should be applauded. Does it solve every PowerVR related issue, no - but it is a start.

    It is interesting that GNUStep never generated any mind share in the open source world. I'm not sure why either.

    There is a problem with that? Seriously I run all sorts of different apps...
  4. I'm surprised that you said that! I wouldn't...

    I'm surprised that you said that! I wouldn't call it a waste of time. Even the ARM compiler/LLVM development for 64 bit got merged with Apples to good effect. Of course these guys are much...

    More importantly Swift is very much a works in progress. Even though Apple claims a version 1 release the language itself is still under active development. As such this project is targeting a...
  6. Why would you say that. It is like saying Go or...

    Why would you say that. It is like saying Go or D or Haskell are a waste of manpower. I may never use any of those but that doesn't mean other wont.

    Besides Swift gas a lot to offer the...
  7. HSA, OpenCL and the like are only useful if the...

    HSA, OpenCL and the like are only useful if the problem domain maps well to the architecture of a GPU. A lot o apps do of course but HSA won't solve all of AMD's problems. Hell AMD has sponsored...

    Architecture is the only thing that keeps AMD behind. AMD can beat Intel as was seen with Brazos which is a good architecture for low end machines compared to ATOM. The problem is nothing AMD...

    This seems like a never ending quest

    I mean really how many Python speed up initiatives are there out there? Maybe it isn't meant to be fast.

    What is more bothersome is that if they would upgrade to Modern C++ they would benefit...

    Beyond that they have a long ways to go to get Swift into shape. I would imagine that this has become a very high priority at Apple.

    If they are looking for a release manager outside of Apple how is that not open?

    Not exactly! There is no reason to believe a minimal shell is more secure if it hasn't been written to be secure and hasn't gone through extensive reviews for security issues. Maybe one or more...

    It is an almost irrational reaction! I mean really this BASH fault was found during an apparent regroups review by some people at RedHat, are other shells so reviewed. Even a strong effort to...

    What is next a COBOL front end to LLVM ? 😜

    This actually sounds lie a great project. I never got into Lisp, all the brackets fry my brain, but I can see how this might excite some.
  15. It is getting to the point of dismissing returns,...

    It is getting to the point of dismissing returns, most. Of these languages have little to offer over C++ and Python. The world needs a much higher level approach to programming. I'd rather see...

    Do you fish? If you do do you fish in ponds? Do all ponds have fish?

    The problem with this program is that X-Org is fishing in an empty pond.
  17. Actually giving out food stamps to the poor is a...

    Actually giving out food stamps to the poor is a very bad thing! Just look at the crime stats in any community where a large number of foodstamps are in use. Nothing in this country should be...

    The issue is the lack of qualified woman interested in working with this group. That is directly the result of not having a large enough pool to choose from. The idiotcy of this program is...

    Because it is discriminatory and unethical? A persons success should be based upon demonstrated skills with respect to the occupation at hand. Success should not be the result of mis guided...

    How so?

    The program has zero chance of making real progress. This because you need a large talent pool to pull from first. It doesn't help that the prgram probably offends more qualifued woman...
