  1. No regressions? Let's see about that...

    Every AMD Linux solution I have ever tried has been riddled with constant regressions. A feature will work for a year, and then break for 6 months, and then be semi-fixed for 3 months until it is...
  2. blow an extra $30 on the GTX 970

    If you are going to spend nearly $2,000, you might as well spend the extra $30-$40 to bump up to the GTX 970. Its got better overall performance (around the GTX 780 / r9 290x range) and much better...

    I agree

    I agree. I do not like coffeescrpit and typescript and other silly languages that compile to js. They usually add much more complexity than they avoid, especially when debugging. Code standards,...

    JavaScript is evolving

    Yes JavaScript is evolving. And yes, it's not a very nice language, with a fair amount of cruft and frustrating limitations. And because it has been treated like a disposable language and is often...
  5. Shield tablet + Ubuntu

    The Jetson TK1 does a very good jog of running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS thanks to NVs L4V distro. I'd like to see the Shield tablet - which runs the same Tegra K1 SoC - run Ubuntu. That tablet has very...
  6. Plasma 5 doesn't appear as ambitious as KDE4

    I think they learned their lesson on KDE 4 - at least I hope so :). Plasma 5 already looks pretty good, and they have been getting feedback for months.
  7. Recommended distro

    I've had the Jetson TK1 since early May. It runs L4T (Linux for Tegra) which is a lightly tweaked Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and uses the same repositories. It runs very well with KDE and 2GB of ram,...
  8. Polished in every possible way?

    Obviously, you must be referring the the turd called Apple Maps. Its been polished now for, what, two years? Or maybe Siri, which is so behind the (more open) competition that is literally comical....
  9. if you want a good android tablet...

    For about the same price, the Tegra Note 7 (a tablet almost a year old) is better in almost all respects (stock android, much better upgrade support, superior graphics, comparable compete, front...
  10. Why?

    Just curious ... why? The quad core A15's have been shown to trade blows with lower-power i3's. And the Kepler graphics are generally better than anything you'd see on other Chromebooks.

    I run...
  11. Let's stay focused

    I think we need to keep in perspective what this incident really illustrates: QC is really the bad actor here. Its not the dcma, or the us government, or the eu, or Github - even if those...
  12. Looks at the quality of the Adreno drivers...

    According to the Dolphin team, Adreno drivers really, really suck. If anything, they could use some help.
  13. Skip the Epson

    I've built and spec'd many Linux boxes. Here are some thoughts:

    1. I'd skip the Epson printer. Get the HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 instead. It has excellent Linux support, and looks quite comparable. ...

    Is there Catalyst support for AM1 chips?

    It there a stable, reliable driver available for Linux that does take advantage of the full component potential? In typical AMD fashion, it doesn't appear there is. Therefore this appears to be a...
  15. Still having troubles compiling on Jetson TK1 (ARM)

    I've been trying on-and-off to get Warsow 1.5.0 to compile on the Jetson TK1. Apparently AngelScript has some in-line ARM assembler that has if-then ("IT") blocks that are not being handled well -...
  16. Actually they do...

    Actually, I think most of us do. Just some value time, productivity, and reliability more than others.

    How much time and hassle is it to configure and install a quad-crossfire 260x rig? Lost me...
  17. The 750Ti is definitely worth the $20 "premium"

    We might "save" $20 off the retail price, but we would pay for the decision many times over for the life of the card.


    The 260X with almost double the TDP (60W vs 115W) might take an additional...
  18. Nouveau driver might sneak up on us

    The other day I upgraded to the nv blob to latest beta drivers. Then I went merrily on my way to continue my days work. All my desktop apps worked fine, and desktop compositing looked as smooth as...
  19. I am tired of appologizing for AMD

    I am tired of appologizing for AMD. Valve and Unity have the influence to tell AMD to "please fix your @#$! POS driver! Its broken right here" and get results. They also almost certainly get...
  20. We know what happens when AMD lays off Linux devs though....

    We don't have to imagine the opposite, though. AMD laid off 25 Linux dev staff in 2012. If they had kept that team, maybe their drivers would be competitive on Android, Steambox, and Linux.

    I...
