    How is this decluttered UX trend making things simpler or easier to use?

    Where's the applications menu on here? Oh, move the mouse way up into the top left corner, of course.

    Ah yeah, shame about the non-free license.

    I get the feeling that, due to new bugs, or systemd no longer being configurable to do exactly as the user wants - people that today are saying it works fine for them, will slowly get frustrated with...

    What for-profit software company would pay to bring people to software freedom? Why would these companies pay to make their GNU/Linux distro more attractive to users, unless they plan to capitalise...

    1502110-LI-RASPBERRY41 (Arch) is listed twice, instead of the Debian Jessie benchmark?

    I meant that it has kept providing the original apps, as of the latest release it hasn't substituted them for Google services.

    So, back on topic...

    The take-away from the talk is that in Hurd, the kernel is doing as little as possible, so subsystems like filesystems just run in userland (like normal software) and as...

    Performance-per-Watt for 750Ti looks amazing here.

    But I refuse to run a non-free driver, so I'd love to see this working on the open-source drivers someday, then get benchmarks of those. And a...

    Valve's talk at DebConf14 mentioned working directly with some upstream projects, like Mesa I think was given as an example. This sort of thing filters into most GNU/Linux distros eventually (some...

    SteamOS built a console gaming platform out of Debian. But why pretend to be a dumb console, mimic its limitations, the fiddliness of its UI and hide its inner workings. Knowing that the hardware...

    FreeBSD devd sounds exactly like acpid in that events can run scripts or other executables, which is a very simple interface and allows tons of flexibility to do what you want. Debugging is easy as...

    Thanks; interesting that only a few of the tests show a big difference in performance now.
