    For a second I thought "game" meant wild animals, birds, and fish that are hunted for food, especially as a sport ;-)

    The irony is that it's probably the case.

    Speak for yourself, Michael. Can you tell us how many Linux users encode at all? I guess it's less than 1%. And out of this percent, can you tell us what codecs people prefer? I've never seen a...

    Bullocks. What matters to the user is performance and performance only (stability too, but GCC rarely miscompiles the code and such errors are usually fixed in a timely manner).

    Google has...

    I would remove the drawing and leave only the logo.

    Sorry, the drawing doesn't appeal to me.

    It's funny how many idiots are out there.

    In this single thread there are two very vocal idiots, luckily, both are now on my ignore list.

    Both have never compiled a single line of code, yet...
  6. This mantra, "which compiler compiles faster" is...

    This mantra, "which compiler compiles faster" is actually a horse byproduct to put it mildly.

    Absolutely most programmers are only interested in the speed of the resulting code: it has to be the...

    What are you exact problems with NVIDIA?

    I've owned their cards for over 16 years already and so far I've had zero problems with their drivers.

    However each of my friends who's ever had AMD...

    Within the margin of error there are no Linux steam users. Sorry.

    What you're seeing in Steam HW Survey is some statistical noise.

    This is such BS.

    The kernel does not distinguish between applications' own memory and IO operations, thus, and it constantly happens under heavy IO when you copy large amounts of data,...

    Show me a single test/benchmark where a system with SWAP enabled beats the same system without SWAP.

    No, I'm not talking about embedded systems which are absolutely low on memory.

    I'm talking...
  11. Nah, it's not that simple, the code is still...

    Nah, it's not that simple, the code is still there and it's used (don't ask me why and how, just run `ps ax | grep kswapd` on a system where you don't have swap enabled in fstab).

    This is quite...
  12. Disabling SWAP support in the kernel is not...

    Disabling SWAP support in the kernel is not incorrect in any way. Disabling IPC or RPC is but I'm not that stupid. Watch your words. In fact most sane people disable SWAP because SWAP is rarely if...

    If you don't configure init files and GRUB and you only use vendor kernels, I'm glad for you.

    However I'm a power user and I love to meddle with my system.

    You guys don't understand one important thing.

    SystemD is written incorrectly.

    1) It should always try to boot as far as it can without crashing. It must go as far as to show login.

    2) All...

    Welcome to my ignore list. I'm not a random moron. And my hands are alright - unlike your dirty mouth which has to be shut.
  16. This call is exactly about the fact that systemd...

    This call is exactly about the fact that systemd is bad, unmaintainable and extremely complex. Also, it has an enormous RAM usage - and it's hardly suitable for embedded systems. In fact Microsoft is...

    Shell scripts are absolutely easy to debug. I've done that numerous times. Shell scripts are also rock solid.

    Obfuscated C code in systemd is nothing like that - a hell to debug, a hell to find...

    I'm not gonna argue here any more.

    Open Source fanatics have become way too hateful and offensive. Never in my life I've been called "a troll" and "a BS'er" in one thread. However unlike open...

    Have you seen any of those segfaults? BS'er is you 'cause SysVinit basically has no way of crashing. It runs bash/sh /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and then waits for certain signals. That's all.

    But you...
