  1. Not true, this isn't your regular driver in...

    Not true, this isn't your regular driver in userspace approach, have a look at that article. It's already been done in virtualization contexts, and there it's better known as PCI passthrough. It lets...
  2. I'm not sure those figures are completely...

    I'm not sure those figures are completely relevant for an open development model. Yes, you do need to pay coders and artists, but you also have to take into account you can leverage copyleft code and...

    I'm not sure you've seen this blog post by Rusty Russell, but it's a bit relevant to the discussion on Hans Reiser: http://rusty.ozlabs.org/?p=196

    Secondly, I've seen both "ReiserFS" and "Reiser4"...
  4. I don't necessarily disagree, but we could be...

    I don't necessarily disagree, but we could be overemphasizing the importance of this when there's a really obvious lack of manpower and resources for free game development.
  5. If we're talking about free assets (which makes...

    If we're talking about free assets (which makes sense for free games), I'd consider a few reasons for that.

    First of all, we shouldn't underestimate the effect of copyrights on the business and...

    But companies generally care about that sort of legal stuff. I do wonder why exactly FOSS adoption isn't all that commonplace in companies, even partial adoption (e.g. some free office suite on...
  7. I'm not sure if it's legally-possible, but a...

    I'm not sure if it's legally-possible, but a shared FOSS driver stack on Windows might help AMD too. The Linux graphics stack is a moving target but, AFAIK, Gallium should do fairly well in terms of...
  8. Speaking of btrfs (or other filesystems)...

    Speaking of btrfs (or other filesystems) maturing, I'm thinking perhaps we aren't approaching this sort of stuff the best way. Filesystems are supposed to exhibit a certain degree of reliability, but...

    I personally prefer SystemRescueCD for both installing Gentoo and as a rescue CD (or USB drive or installed somewhere on /boot), although I haven't looked at the Gentoo live CDs/DVDs for quite some...
  10. I don't really see the issue here. If you're...

    I don't really see the issue here. If you're going to distribute a 3rd party closed-source app you might as well make a statically-linked build (to the extent that's possible) that installs somewhere...

    RCs are in fact the time and place for all sorts of bug fixes, not just those which concern code added by that particular merge window. However, in this case it seems the kexec fix was deemed...

    I'm not convinced patents are useful at all. Really, there are enough incentives already, like being the first to market or raising funds through a variety of means (even donations or pledges). What...
  13. I think the best reasonable argument in your...

    I think the best reasonable argument in your favour would be "nobody knows and that's a risk". But I imagine it's tough to prove any intent to enable infringement as long as you clearly state it's...

    Come on, let's be realistic. How likely is it for an average Joe to get caught running, say, VDrift with S3TC enabled? He (or someone willing to enable him) could even set up an encrypted S3TC runner...
  15. I can only say it's your choice whether you obey...

    I can only say it's your choice whether you obey the law or not. And frankly, this isn't just about clearly breaking some law or not, this whole situation is unclear and no major organisation is...

    Hm, that's what I think too. I don't remember ICC beating GCC by a comparable margin on Intel's own CPUs, though I could be wrong. Could it be aggressive autovectorizing?

    I'm curious how it...

    Actually, Linus' latest idea of going 3.x with x being the minor isn't bad at all, as long as we don't go 4.x after 3.40 :)
  18. My take on this is version numbers should attempt...

    My take on this is version numbers should attempt to be informative or at least avoid being misleading. So they can be based on some milestone, like Wine 1.x, or reflect major architectural changes....

    Oh dear, I kinda misread what you did, I'm sorry: "All compilers were tested in their "out of the box" configuration without specifying any extra flags.". Which is fine, given many packages already...

    That being said, I apologize if I misunderstood what you actually did there. My understanding is somehow you made sure no optimizations are passed in, but that probably takes a bit of twiddling with...
