    MS Office has clearly had more thought put into the UI. I often find with Libre (I haven't used OO in a couple of versions so it may have improved). LibreOffice Writer always feels a little clunky,...

    Microsoft Office definitely feels more polished than LibreOffice or OpenOffice, there's just something about them that feels a little dated. Feature wise, they're great but I can see why people...

    Simply put, anything which exploits any part of the X server is running as a process with root privileges. It breaks the principle of least privilege, although likely difficult to exploit it's almost...

    I never understood how people can claim Arch is faster when it uses all the same code. I use Arch and love it because of the rolling release system and getting updates ASAP without the hassle of...

    I'm surprised this potential security hole wasn't fixed years ago. At least there's progress now, it'll be great when the drivers and login managers finally catch up.

    [citation needed]


    PHP Does have some terrible flaws and I hope they get fixed, but your opinion is based little on facts. There is some stupid stuff in PHP. e.g. my favourite:

    '0' and 0 are...

    Awesome, I'll definitely give it a go then as soon as it appears on the official arch repositories. It does look like a huge step forward, but as the posters above said the default KDE interface...

    Are themes/icon sets/window decorations from KDE4 usable with this? I'm a bit reluctant to switch if I'm stuck with the default theme for some time.

    It still seems odd to me that the concept of a cursor exists any level above the display server.

    I'm glad nVidia even supply a Linux driver. Considering a tiny percentage of their sales come from linux customers it's doubtful whether it's profitable from a business perspective. The fact that...

    Will this just allow the integrated GPU to be shared or will it potentially allow other GPUs in the system to be shared between the guest and the host?

    edit: And presumably this will still only...

    To say that the open source drivers are "superior" is pure wishful thinking. In some aspects they work better but for gaming where GPU performance is the best metric for measuring superiority the...

    Pretty much this with a small addition: Is there any reason Valve don't repackage DOSBox based old games for Linux and make them available on steam? The amount of work involved for most games should...

    I'm impressed with this card. It's probably more of a crappy ATI driver issue than an actual gauge of performance, but the EVGA 750 Ti FTW vastly outperforms the HD5870 I replaced with it.

    So will this simplify configuration of multiple monitors running from different GPUs of different vendors? As it stands all the methods of doing this are a bit hacky and messy.
