    Not that 100MB → 15kB is bad. From some tests I did on highly repetitive text files I remember LZMA being a lot better than bzip2 (like 1000 times better, albeit on an unusual example). So yeah, why...

    I'm waiting for Rust: memory safe with much more low-level flexibility than D. In the mean-time D is a nice language which never took off, C++ is an ugly but powerful language that's getting more and...

    It's not. One #define rule can change what happens in a #included file. That's the biggest problem with the preprocessor.

    Sounds very useful. What would be even more useful is eliminating the unnecessary parts of a header for each use case: when including a header for class Foo, most code only needs to know about public...

    Still no note about PWM. And I'm thinking monitors these days (hi res ones) should drop the VGA and DVI and include another DisplayPort, maybe even an extra HDMI. Rationale: connecting a DP laptop...

    Michael, have you found the NoSquint plugin for Firefox yet? Quite simple (just sets a zoom factor), and much better than that about:config setting (which messes up the icons).

    Another thing Michael didn't mention is whether or not it uses Pulsed Width Modulation to control brightness. PWM causes flicker when not at full brightness but is annoyingly quite common.

    Hmm, I...

    I use KDE on Fedora on a Yoga 2 Pro (even higher DPI) and can recommend it.

    The current plasma doesn't scale properly but is still mostly usable (apart from on-screen keyboard), and other than...

    Games performance yes, but for desktop compositing performance and features, the NVIDIA blob sucks. Intel laptop I can plug in an external display and it autoconfigures, NVIDIA requires manual...

    In my experience office restrictions have a lot less to do with licence costs than IT guys worrying about being asked to provide support for software they don't know as well as some well-intended but...

    Agree with "who_me": quality control of news articles could be better (along with less notifications about rather boring things). Maybe you should get someone from the relevant mailing list to...

    Display hotplugging and OpenGL just work with so much less effort on Intel HD4x00 vs slightly older NVIDIA chips. And that's with either NVIDIA driver. Totally agree; stay away from NVIDIA.

    What's the difference? Green + more room for adverts? I'd suggest you keep the dark grey. As ParticleBoard says, changes usually throw people, and I personally think the grey looks better.

    Ah. I was going to ask what these reviews were in aid of. There's nothing very Linux-centric about SSD reviews and others (e.g. Anand) can do much more extensive and informative reviews.
