    Debian is damn reliable, if you had some other distro (starting with U) that broke standard utilities like wget, killing quite a few of your scripts for months, beeing unable to connect to the net...

    Well, if you say "client" I assume some app you need to use for the games, not some optional "downloader" (most browsers can resume croken dl just fine so I dont see a big need for that kinda stuff)....

    Gog client, are you kidding? The very reason I buy on gog is because there is no such nonsense.
    And yes they should work fine on Ubuntu (exceptions of course possibly)

    If you read my post, then you might understand that the long discussions will them be held by multiple groups that really depend on some sort of estimate of "friction" between different versions. and...

    If you have a running system and your product has to meet strict safety standards then everything you change has to be argued and (re-)tested.
    Now consider this if you want to change from version...

    Clang is usually very thorough and close to the standard, but then Clang-Windows seems to be an different animal since they lambdas are supported since 3.1 so what do I know.

    Hard to imagine its...

    Funny, I never said that. So you have reading comprehension issues?
    x32: allows apps with 32 and 64 bit pointers, without different CPU Modes. You need, for the most part differently compiled...

    Usually yes, you need x32 libs (together with the regular 32bit and 64bit x86 libs that would mean possibly 3 sets of one library). In some cases you could get along with using 64 bit libs for x32...

    Naive question since I havent dealt with the subject for years, but aint OpenGL-ES basically a OpenGL with most of its insanity stripped out (and less features)?
    Instead of starting from scratch,...

    Encryption - would be either inline asm for hardware support or some tight loops
    Sorting - Primary concern is the algorithm
    Filtering - you mean network stack?
    Searching - same as sorting.

    I...

    Sure, but if you look at whats needed for providing a stable binary interface, then none of C++ niceties can be "exported" between (shared) libraries.

    If you try to solve these issues you will end...

    I think if you`d see significant differences then it would mean something is really broken.
    The time spend in code for kernel switching processes is minimal (the switching itself is more expensive),...

    So what if they get used in proprietary applications? As long they are good and worth their money or even gratis, Id rather have that choice than nothing. You think GPL projects where built without...

    Yeah, whats is this world coming to when you can download and use a compiler with no string attached. I want a ten page clause which defines what I cant do with my my "freedom".
  15. Did I miss the compiler settings, or werent there...

    Did I miss the compiler settings, or werent there any posted. Even if, gcc -O2 is different than clang -O2 so its rather useless comparing the same "option strings". Finding the best options for each...

    Typically when money runs low the managers will empty the banks and spend it on things like black-jack and hookers while they still can.
    Seems opensource manager arent that different - I give them...

    It takes even more time if it wasnt supported from ground up but had to use linker plugins. Which is what I was getting at, gcc 4.8 is actually quite decent but earlier versions had quite a few...

    LTO support need to be throughout the toolchain, the compiler is just one part.
    And LTO has some nasty surprises of breaking code that worked before, both by exposing bugs that only occur when you...

    If you want non-free firmware you could download Isos with firmware?
    I hope the follow ups will cover more about the standard set of programs. Im not happy with Gnome 3, but less popular...

    Probably because nobody but google believes in any tangible advantage over jpeg, actually rather the opposite (tends to smooth details). And it rather sucks as Picture format without interlaced and...
