    whoa

    wait, epiphany still exists?!
  2. to the chase

    The question everybody wants to ask: does it still suck?

    [and yes, I'm a gnome user!]

    "Local Register Allocation"

    http://vmakarov.fedorapeople.org/LRA.html

    (I don't know so much about the details, but my impression is that it's intended to replace the "reload" phase of gcc,...

    In general I think it's not so useful to think of C++11 support as a single lump item—few compilers will have complete or near complete C++11 support any time soon.

    Instead, think of "these...
  5. From what I hear, the better handling of OGL ES...

    From what I hear, the better handling of OGL ES is also due in part to the lack of stodgy legacy vendors that seem to have a lot of influence on the normal OpenGL process.

    Weren't many of the...

    I read the article several times, and still have no idea what "dirndl" is, other than some kind of magic sauce that makes stuff go faster....

    Apparently it somehow involves GPUs; a...

    Ok, I was just reacting to the "assuming gtk and the rest are onboard," which was a little worrying...



    Good!
  8. GTK+ and Gnome are not the same

    It's important to distinguish between "Gnome" and "GTK+". While there may be arguments for making Gnome "linux only" (I'd probably disagree with them -- portability can be a huge pain, but in the...
  9. wait, what's different?

    I was kind of excited to read this, as I've always been one of those people who found the blender UI extremely difficult to use... but I upon installing a new version (2.57-svn36147-1, on debian),...

    Thanks, nice article on an interesting topic.

    Are there other publicly available compute services like this that could be compared with?

    Ahhh the phoronix forums... ever a font of reasoned discourse :/

    Thanks AMD!!!

    You didn't choose the simplest path, but you chose the right one, for both your customers and your company's future.

    I've found gcc (and especially g++) 4.5 to be much better than 4.3, in both speed-of-generated-code and generated-code size.

    I suspect Mozilla has probably tweaked their code and their compilation...
  14. Poll: hate them all?

    Pro-Gnome: I personally use mostly gnome stuff (though I don't use nautilus), I really like GTK as a toolkit to program in (whoever on this thread said it was hard is wrong), and I think gnome is a...

    The thing is that a lot of people actually care about nouveau, but few care about reiser4. So why would Linus push hard for it?

    As for the bfs scheduler, dunno, but the case for it seems far...

    Redhat does seem to move pretty slowly and carefully compared to some other FOSS companies, especially when it comes to non-user-visible things like development infrastructure.

    More than anything,...

    Hmm, well, let's see --

    * MS control
    * bloat
    * NIH
    * drooling masses

    Yup, that's 4!

    It's not a serious one -- autoconf-generated shell code goes to huge lengths to be compatible with just about any existing /bin/sh.

    As you say, nowadays buggy/weird shells are not as much a...

    Autoconf is somewhat different that many other build-systems (e.g. cmake), as it does _not_ require autoconf itself to be installed by the builder, merely make/sh/etc. Autoconf itself is only...
