    Hmmmm.... and just what new devices would one plug into the USB port of a Power3 workstation? And as the article noted, it appears nobody is running Linux on these anymore anyway. Doesn't mean they...

    Thanks dantii. I had seen your FAQ, and also "yum info'd wt". Wt is much more mature and has way more documentation and examples (yeah, I know). OTOH, Qt is what I'm increasingly basing the rest of...

    But apart from the web site, what of complex and/or compute intensive web applications that might (conceivably) be better written in C++? And if such are to be server-side (where else?), does one...

    Well okay. And I'm familiar/code with Qt5 so that's a plus. But is there a compelling reason to use Cutelyst rather than say the (somewhat) more mature Wt webtoolkit?

    But where's the fun in that? Sorry guys, I've been an unrepentant Fedora luser since its RedHat 6.3 daze: only release I missed (though not much) was F15, which I sat out while LXDE and XFCE...

    Part of me was hoping the delayed F-21 release would allow the team to focus on mature stability, rather than bleedingedgekitchensinkcandystoreitis. But then it wouldn't be Fedora, so what would be...

    Thanks Kalrish. I always get misty-eyed when geeks go idealistic. :) Joke. I do, and also recognize your advocacy of something a bit beyond coffee-house idealism. Obligatory bumper sticker on the...

    Japanese-American ESBWR and AP-1000 designs are admittedly the worlds best bar none. But I wouldn't write Rosatom off just yet: their WER PWR series is no slouch, as witnessed by an impressive slew...

    Thanks Michael, that is one poignantly enduring photo shoot. Those interested in What Went Wrong might wish to browse WNA's article: Chernobyl Accident 1986.
  14. Alpha Artifacts ?

    Okay, so I'm a newbie. Only tangentially related to this article, but I recently wrote some C++ code that overlays two photographic images with alpha blending. Compositing is done with QtPainter, Qt...

    Anaconda has changed quite a bit -- but not in that regard. I include Xfce and Gnome in my install, though anymore Cinnamon has gotten so good I don't actually much use Xfce. (Though its still good...

    Okay. I'm back and my Heisenbug is good. The yum update from rescue DVD fixed the recursive-login problem so I didn't need to reinstall, and Cinnamon and yumex are better than ever. qt-5.2.0 is...

    Good day to be a Phoronix reader, is what. This is one impressively useful test suite you've put together, Michael. And a nice selection of HPC codes we don't see much elsewhere. Good to see...
