    DirectX, being COM based, (indirectly) builds on top of Win32. WinRT also builds on top of Win32. They alluded to that on the Building Windows 8 blog.

    Huh, I wasn't aware they were still using them. At least some of the Atoms use Intel graphics, I guess I just assumed they did that across the line.

    Intel went with IMG because it seemed easier to go that route rather than reinvent their own. They got burned badly by the poor driver support, so they dropped IMG in favour of scaling down their own...
  5. Templates and objects are orthogonal features....

    Templates and objects are orthogonal features. You don't need to use objects to use templates.

    Operator overloading can be dangerous if done incorrectly, but again that has nothing to do with...
  6. It's more likely a choice of the app developer,...

    It's more likely a choice of the app developer, not the distro maintainer.
  7. You seriously misunderstand templates if you...

    You seriously misunderstand templates if you think they are not a compile time feature. Also, "mixing with inheritance" is not the basic template use case.

    Templates are great when you don't...

    Good to hear there's finally some movement on RAID5/6. Any word on what the current status on the other roadblocks are? Their wiki page seems horribly out of date.

    Because that would take years to do, assuming the main kernel maintainers actually want to change the language.
  10. Some, not most. Okay, now we know you're one...

    Some, not most.


    Okay, now we know you're one of the trolls.

    Sure. While we're at it, let's rewrite the kernel in the brainfuck language too.

    Compared to ASICs, this thing would be horrible for bitcoin.
  13. I followed the Amazon link provided and found a...

    I followed the Amazon link provided and found a single hit at $499.99 plus postage. The Australian distributor mentioned on the Intel website doesn't even stock the discounted model. Colour me...

    I had a look through that bug report. It quickly devolved into a dumping ground of "me too" reports of unrelated issues. They couldn't get a clear, consistent answer on which kernels were actually...

    Arch is all about following upstream as closely as possible while keeping their own custom bits as simple as possible. Some may call that wise. You could call it lazy.

    Then again I'm not sure how non-RAID sequential reads are significantly faster than single disk, as if it's actually a linear span like Michael claimed, it won't have multiple sources to read from.
  17. The benefit of HSA was that there was zero copy...

    The benefit of HSA was that there was zero copy between CPU and GPU, you just use virtual address mapping. The discrete card can't access the system memory, it needs to be copied into GPU memory,...

    Probably because the btrfs code doesn't yet farm it out in RAID 1 cases, even though it should. Might be worth filing a bug report in case someone else hasn't already.
  19. RAID 0 has valid use cases (performance related),...

    RAID 0 has valid use cases (performance related), and since these benchmarks only test performance (not resiliency), it's perfectly valid to test here. Even if very few people are expected to use it...

    That's because you're testing performance under normal conditions, not reliability under abnormal conditions. The purpose of RAID 5/6 resiliency, and it's not fit for purpose there yet. A single disk...
