  1. I don't understand exactly the role of LLVM here....

    I don't understand exactly the role of LLVM here. Is it that MS will let any LLVM-based language to be executed in the .NET runtime, or is it that the C# compiler will emit LLVM IR code and get...
  2. I don't mind using closed source software, and I...

    I don't mind using closed source software, and I don't mind paying for them, but I'm still using Linux exclusively. The problem with Windows is more than the openness of its source code.
  3. This move is quite pointless. Microsoft should be...

    This move is quite pointless. Microsoft should be doing the opposite. Most of the developers use Linux and most of the users use Windows, so the higher demand is to be able to target Windows from...

    AMD should just open source Catalyst. The community might be able to fix what AMD doesn't have enough time to fix. I don't see what kind of secrets they are trying to hide in that driver, but with...

    Hiring Mesa developers won't solve the problem as the problem isn't actually with how they are using Mesa. They might very well be using Mesa in a very efficient way and still see that kind of...

    Looking at required specs mentioned on the Steam store page, it looks like eON is adding some big overhead:
    * Minimum RAM: 2GB on Windows vs 4GB on Linux
    * Recommended RAM: 4GB on Windows vs 8GB on...

    Most gamers won't need 8 TFLOPS right now since almost all games for the next few years will be designed to run on a 1.8 TFLOPS machine (PS4). The ones who need 8 TFLOPS are those who want to run...

    Then we should write the acronym in Arabic since Arabic is written from right to left so people would naturally read it without breaking the meaning: وإنأ

    He talks about the "masses" then he mentions Adobe Photoshop! And he mentions LibreOffice not being on par with MS Office as if everyone needs those extra features that MS Office provide. If we go by...

    I think this puts pressure on open source engines to reorganize and prepare themselves for this new challenge. Those many open-source engines now need to consolidate themselves into fewer, but higher...

    I am planning to buy one of them when they are released. Haven't decided which one yet.

    Are Intel CPUs that much faster than AMD, even when they both run at the same frequency and using the same instruction set?
  13. Nice. These are apparently all powered by...

    Nice. These are apparently all powered by SteamOS.

    I am surprised at the price difference between Intel CPUs and Amd ones. Steam Machines with Intel CPUs are around 200$ more or so. Why so much...

    Looks like Linux will just skip on OpenGL and jump straight to Vulcan, which is the right thing to do.

    Well done Valve, well done.
  15. Well, if this source is correct then I guess...

    Well, if this source is correct then I guess there is a big incentive for manufacturers and developers to target SteamOS:

    "we were told that running SteamOS and being packaged with the controller...

    This is awesome news. Yes, those kind of games is what can push SteamOS forward. Hopefully Valve can keep those coming.

    The GTX 970M has a total of 2.3 TFlops. Compare that to the PS4's 1.8 TFlops or the XB1's 1.2 TFlops and you know you've got a powerful machine. So the main question now is the price.

    Exactly.. It's very frustrating. On the other hand, I bet even if Valve has the controller ready to ship they won't reveal it until E3 and won't start shipping it until the holiday season.

    If they want SteamOS to succeed they need to make full movement, not shy steps. If a Windows based Steam Machine offers all that SteamOS machine does, including the Steam Controller, then there will...

    "...some of which will be powered by the Linux-based SteamOS"

    Only SOME will run SteamOS? So... the majority of Steam Machines will run Windows instead?! I knew this was coming. For a while I...
