    Well Apple is one major buyer of IMG tech. It is in Apple's best interest that IMG hardware works as badly as possible with other vendors and OSes because then the iPad competition would look bad....

    So to spell it out, IMG thinks their shitty closed source drivers are the most valuable commercial asset they have. That most likely means they are more hostile towards open sourcing their work than...

    I really hope Imagination is reading these forums. If they do, they should hang their legal department. Closed drivers and dickhead attitude won't help anyone.

    Is there any hope it has intel HD graphics? I suspect it has Powervr which means it's pure shit from hacking pov. F*CK you imagination Technologies.

    Maybe you want to buy Nexus 9 retina tablet instead?
  6. If you compile 32-bit apps using latest SSE...

    If you compile 32-bit apps using latest SSE optimizations and native arch sheduling etc., it shouldn't be that much slower than 64-bit. Especially with PAE disabled. 64 bits only helps if you need...

    Of course it can. Raspberry is GPU + 700 MHz CPU. My Pentium III 700 MHz + NVIDIA TNT2 was just fine for Quake3 @ 800x600. You can even overclock RPi to 1000 MHz. Also RPi has DDR ram and Pentium III...

    It works for me but I had to decode in the PC and send via analog 5.1, not hdmi or spdif. Pulse can't mix 5.1 passthrough and other system alarms without decoding first. Same thing with network...

    PHP is often the best tool for the job. Cheap labor, lots of libraries and support, cheap hosting. That's pretty much it.

    Mercurial requires more memory and bigger operations on files are really slow. Probably just Python fanboys use it. There are no technical benefits really.

    Maybe the world's cheapest HTPC platform. Pretty awesome. Runs 1080p with Dolby/DTS 7.1 sounds and PGS subtitles without issues. Overclocks at least 300 MHz. The chinese htpc boxes at store are at...

    If you look at Firefox or Chrome, the new release schedule has really mproved their progress even though e.g. Firefox was based on C and GTK stuff. KDE is the poster child of C++ so I expect that...

    They probably require excessive attribution. I'd also prefer the 2-clause a bit more. In a previous company I worked we often took open source 2-clause BSD libraries and claimed their 100% our own...

    Unfortunately no. I have 10 metres between the AP and HTPC and 2.4 GHz won't cut it. Even with low bitrate streams. YMMV though, but it's not really that fast.

    Sorry but no. The project is pathetic. Only 2.4 GHz wifi support and streaming. Does not support even playing from network shares nor has CEC support. So RPi + wifi dongle does a lot more.

    You're confused. The keyboard shortcut for resizing is the correct way to do it. Average user wants fullscreen apps so the resize icons should be hidden to avoid confusion. Average user only needs...

    I knew that, but I didn't mean the policy they have with chipsets using 3rd party GPUs. The HD graphics also has closed source firmware, but it's much much better for free use than any other...

    PowerVR hardware can be still considered a cancer. Don't buy from them. Boycott their products until they become as open as Intel.

    No, the idea is that you use the best tool for the job. PHP is the best tool for coordinating things and embedded C plugins are good for performance stuff.

    In real world you'd use cache and do demanding stuff with other services or plugins.
