    It's not a fact. It's a blanket statement about an extremely diverse group of people (even assuming "Linux people" simply includes those who contribute to FOSS projects and not the far larger, even...

    F21 has good Wayland support.
    Very stable and most apps just work (Firefox, in particular, scrolls more smoothly than it does in X... yay glamour!).
    The most obvious missing features, to me, are...

    Why do you bother coming to Linux forums since it doesn't appear that you use Linux?
    Do you enjoy getting smug and letting others know of your superiority?
    Genuine question, not trying to flame.

    My understanding is that they've been working on command streams for a long time. The concern, I think, is that gallium seems to have demonstrated a new solution path for a certain class of users (to...

    Ah, thanks.
    I wasn't sure of its status but had a vague recollection that it was no longer supported.

    As phoronix readers we can do more than show the way: we can MAKE the way.
    We can write those scripts for more advanced games, that was spoken about earlier in the thread.
    We can create test...

    PA seems to have used shm since at least 2008 (https://www.mail-archive.com/pulseaudio-discuss@mail.0pointer.de/msg02560.html).

    I'm not sure what happened between now and then but they've...

    Shm isn't zero copy but it's one way to achieve zero copy.

    You don't need to do a wipe. You've got several options, from wubi(assuming that's still around), side-by-side install, virtualization, or good ole live USB.

    PA uses shm, so it is zero copy. Arun said there was talk of moving away from shm to memfd but nothing certain)
    Second, my understanding of the issue with pa is that the intent was to provide...

    I'm not aware of another compiled language that provides guarantees of safety over as wide a variety of situations as rust, but I'm always interested in learning.
    You are right, though. With our...

    Do you have a reference regarding your comment about how common four cores are in android? They've been around for several years now, it's not as though they add greatly you the expense and, from...

    And everything they develop is open source (aside from some gov't contract work, I imagine).
    Once, again, I really don't understand the rational basis for dislike of rh. What more can they possibly...
  14. I wasn't aware that they were trying to match...

    I wasn't aware that they were trying to match APIs with WebKit. That will, hopefully, encourage gnome to move away from WebKit 2, but obviously we'll need to see what kind of performance we can...
  15. First, what does "implements WebKit's API" mean?...

    First, what does "implements WebKit's API" mean? Second, where did you read this?
    Regarding arch, they are looking at modular components to replace, first (they have said that servo is MODELED after...

    Around the 12min mark, iirc, he explains that due to servo's extreme modularity they are trying to incorporate...

    There was nothing in that post that said they were planning to drop gecko for servo.
    OTOH, I provided with a link from someone working on the project who said it is intended for research....

    To be clear, you should be able to recovery older versions of the days by looking at the file with most recent gens number and a consistent checksum.

    Not to my knowledge. Keep in mind that the disks themselves can recover corrupted blocks (using r-s, I believe) up to n flips. The exact value of n relies on the length of the stored value....

    Again, that's why theres the scrub utility.
