    The post itself says. So you can write in-browser synthesizers and DJ decks (It's Google... so I'm sure it's for ChromeOS) that interoperate with external MIDI hardware.

    The Xbox 360 controller is actually the one that's most likely to work (though I still have various games where, to get joystick working, I have to run the Windows version in Wine).

    Now if only someone in kernel development would get interested in gaming so I didn't have to pay $15 for the parts to build my own "set default joystick" button to to please games which ignore...

    Does the E19 WM support a customizable blend of tiling and floating window management out of the box? ...because I'd love to give E19 a try but it's hard enough making time to migrate WMs without...

    Actually, my desktop is mostly LXDE componentry with a mix of non-DE stuff like urxvt, gVim, Geeqie (formerly GQView), and the barebones "-vo vdpau" MPlayer GUI when I either need more features than...

    Is that supposed to be a statement against Xfce? ...because I'd take Xfce over bloated "desktop environments" like KDE and GNOME any day. It's lighter and snappier than either, and more customizable...

    Hmm. I picked that up when one of GOG.com's insomnia sales had an insane (~85%) discount on it. I wonder how long it'll be before non-Steam users get access to the Linux port.

    *nod* I'm primarily a Python programmer and I use them heavily. I didn't feel it was necessary to mention that because you obviously know that and I know that I know it too.

    Note: Java calls them annotations, C# calls them attributes, and they originated in functional and aspect-oriented programming under the name advice.

    Some people (including me and my brother) notice that latency and find it makes the whole system feel unsatisfying.
