    Part of the problem is people who state this as a fact. Indeed, if you game on linux and want absolute max performance over everything else, you'll be better served with the blob and probably better...

    That's a good point but generally if you're going with a stable kernel, you should probably be going with stable hardware and it's not terribly hard to do this in a sever environment.

    I dunno, I'm...

    I don't really think these type of installs need LTS. Stable is old enough when it comes out, you get about 2-3 years then you get about another year to migrate away. If you're managing your...

    You can have all the bloat in the world, if it's not part of the executed code path it's not going to make a tangible difference to performance. The problem with the K Desktop, from my perspective,...

    Xen and KVM are bare metal hypervisors, where virtual box is a hosted hypervisor. Doing your virtualization at application level is always going to be slower than at kernel level unless somethings...

    Nobody _needs_ a degree to learn anything, you can figure it all out via books, yourself, or on the internet. However the point of structured education is the people teaching you should have been...

    I've been running a 5850 for over a year without a single stability problem. Personally I feel my 2500k graphics colours look slightly washed out compared to that, but stability wise both of them...

    Sigh. It has nothing to do with this. If you were to tell gamers that they could get another OS for free, that'd run their games fine, and offer a decent experience, they'd probably be happy to...

    Screenwise, does more pixels actually require more power? I would think the power would be based more on the size in inches, as opposed to pixels. Me, I want 1440p+ screens either way.

    It's simpler than that. The argument is you sold me hardware, it's not mine, thus I can do what I want with it including hacking he firmware to unlock new features. Of course the FSF would strongly...

    There is nothing wrong with that logic but there is something wrong with yours. Valve has to run steam, which includes indefinitely hosting a growing number of games. The bandwidth, hosting, and...

    I think you're underselling steam. Running a content delivery network with user access control that size of steam is an interesting technological problem, which is one of the reasons you didn't see...

    I think someone as smart as yourself should be able to understand the typical "everything should be opensourced" argument, especially when we're refering to hardware.

    What you'll never understand,...

    I prefer apt / debian to FREEBSD. Before I ran debian + ZFSonLinux (in a mostly unrecommended way) I had network stutters and similar issues on my n40l which is a known problem. On debian these...

    Oh, so you raised a bug and they told you they've replicated your issue but just don't care?

    Maybe the difference is people running PostgreSQL, of which there are probably many more of, actually...

    So you don't think the Wii has a kernel and drivers or are you prohibiting your complaint to only Linux for some reason?

    Tell me, whats the difference that makes it so Linux cant be a gaming...

    Again, does it work when you plug it into your Wii? How is using your argument against other platforms "trolling"? You haven't actually made a decent point, really.

    You can always do something about that, you know.

    It's not that I disagree, I just don't find it entirely constructive to bash the system in the manner you've taken. First of all, you can't be...
