    Not at all. More like OpenCL, except based on C++11, with inline kernel definitions (as lambdas). It's somewhat similar to SyCL, actually.

    Because it's the only really portable API to take advantage of GPUs and accelerators? What are you suggesting people use instead?

    DragonFlyBSD is pretty much entirely about servers and clustering. Very interesting work, and potentially useful, but just about as far from graphics as you can get.
  5. AFAIK this is highly hardware-dependant and would...

    AFAIK this is highly hardware-dependant and would require driver support, which doesn't (again, AFAIK) exist yet.

    It's also noteworthy that most GPUs don't really support preemption (so a kernel...

    Because of its simplicity, portability, and clean code, NetBSD is used heavily in embedded development. Pretty much any Apple embedded device (Time Capsule, etc.) uses it. I believe NASA also uses it...

    My guess is that means that the front-end code is done and works on a reference implementation (softpipe or llvmpipe). Probably a bit more work needs to be done to make sure all the back-ends support...

    The xlib backend rasterizes on the CPU, but uses the GPU (via XRender and EXA) for filling, copying, and compositing (which tend to be more frequent operations). I think it may also use XRender for...

    Maybe Mechwarrior 3 will finally be playable now?

    I love it when games that no longer work properly on modern versions of Windows run without a hitch on Wine!

    Well, Samba/Active Directory is much more a mechanism for SSO/global permissions/DDNS than just a networked filesystem... There is no really comparable alternative that I know of... the closest...

    Gosh you guys are spoiled. I remember (not too long ago!) when open-source 3D was something that was talked about with longing and the best open-source drivers struggled to run anything much more...

    Hopefully this will fix the intermittent mode-set problem I have on my laptop where the screen goes blank on mode-set during boot, and I have to restart a few times to get any display past mode-set.

    I say this every time the topic comes up: for tasks that are not inherently visual, a graphical user interface is likely to be far more arcane and difficult to use than a well-designed text...

    I think the issue here is the choice of machine. Gallium3D is pretty well known to use more CPU, this machine has a weak CPU, and these games are generally CPU-limited. I would want to see a...

    So like Xonotic.

    Still being worked on, but has great promise to introduce new/different play modes, and eventually vehicles are planned, I believe.

    Every layer added to your audio pipeline will add latency, to say nothing of excessive layering introducing unnecessary compatibility issues and bugs.

    I would really like to see OSSv4 adopted as...

    UT and Quake are both arena shooters, yes, but they play very differently. I don't actually like Quake much, because it is too much about twitch-response, rather than timing and strategy. I would say...

    Only GFX improvements? Quake-style shooter? Are you guys playing the same game I am? Yes, it's an arena shooter, but it feels a lot more like Unreal than Quake, and the weapons have been improved a...

    The wine project is pretty picky about the patches they accept (they don't want the code to become a horrible, unmaintainable mess of hacks, understandably), so they might need to maintain their own...

    I would just like to say that the latest version of Xonotic (0.6) is probably one of the best arena shooters I've ever played, on par with Unreal and Quake III Arena. Who needs UT3 for Linux when...
