    Well that was certainly a screwed up set of results. Seems like no DE is perfect at anything, though KDE does appear to be the worst performer overall. I'm really surprised unity did so great.
  2. I'm surprised RAID1 read performance was so low. ...

    I'm surprised RAID1 read performance was so low. I'm also surprised how often RAID 0 writing was so low, but with BTRFS I can't say I'm too surprised.

    I agree, x86-32 should have died years ago, but Intel, adobe, and MS unfortunately kept it alive. But as these benchmarks show, not all applications have any particular gain running in 64 bit. ...
  4. A huge chunk of multiarch software is through...

    A huge chunk of multiarch software is through interpreters, like python, perl, and ruby. Honestly I'm not sure how well those scale on 64 bit but I figure they're not just simply sloppy ports.

    I don't get what you're asking - the 980 outperformed the 780Ti in many cases, so it does deliver the performance. But much like everything hardware related in the PC world, there is no such thing...
  6. In terms of pure numbers, the 780Ti is a superior...

    In terms of pure numbers, the 780Ti is a superior GPU in almost every way. But the design, drivers, and fabrication of the 980 gives it superior performance in many cases.
  7. Eliminate people who are using 32 bit when they...

    Eliminate people who are using 32 bit when they would have no downside of switching to 64 bit and you cut out a huge chunk of the 32-bit users. As I stated before, ubuntu is pretty heavy. Ubuntu is...
  8. Seeing as the driver controls temperature, I'm...

    Seeing as the driver controls temperature, I'm sure the drivers are the reason for this. Also, it appears that these GPUs perform better in linux than they do in windows. They could possibly be...
  9. Wow, roughly $100 less than the 780Ti and it...

    Wow, roughly $100 less than the 780Ti and it outperforms that in many cases. I don't remember if that holds true in Windows, but at least in linux it's a clear choice that the 900 series is good to...

    ARM 32 bit vs x86-32 is kind of comparing apples to oranges. They're binary incompatible so your point is irrelevant (no offense). Canonical is dropping support for x86-32, not 32 bit ARM.

    As...

    How has gparted not breached 1.0 yet? It was released over 10 years ago - what else does it need to officially be considered stable?
  12. Hmm I haven't heard of this. I may look into it....

    Hmm I haven't heard of this. I may look into it. Do you know if it supports libraries like Qt or pygame?
  13. Seriously? They're doing this NOW? After a...

    Seriously? They're doing this NOW? After a (what seems to be) year-long debate over which init system to use, and then transitioning to systemd in STABLE? Seriously debian is screwing up left and...

    He makes a valid point, however, a good maintainer will test the packages themselves before releasing them. It makes sense why you'd want all packages to be updated at the same time, but whenever I...

    I'm assuming full wayland support won't happen until all KDE applications have been ported to Qt 5?

    Just a guess, but is this where Marek usually comes in? At least based on phoronix news, I noticed half the stuff he releases are interesting and "obscure", but useful and not always...
  17. Ah ok, that makes sense, but yeah, the question...

    Ah ok, that makes sense, but yeah, the question is more about r600/radeonsi. I had a feeling it was mostly HW-independent but considering that not all GPUs can be crossfired, I figured there was...

    I can wait, but I'd just like to know if it will ever happen and if so, a rough estimate as to when it will be worked on. If there's a strong chance it will not happen within the next 2 years I'll...

    @Slartifartblast
    I appreciate how much nvidia has given linux, and unlike a lot of people here I don't really give a crap if the drivers are open source or not. However, nvidia has had pretty...

    Haha yeah, I am. Though whenever it comes for me to do an upgrade, I intend to do multi-GPU again. For the sake of linux, mesa, and the good work that you and your team have provided, I prefer to...
