    Indeed. The guys at PowerVR just put out a demo and some sample code. I really like what I see so far.

    My pet peeve is that the new functions are prefixed with "vk" instead of "gl". They should...

    Finally, a sane way to manage bootloaders.

    GRUB2 configuration sucks beyond imagination.

    Oh look, someone can use a guest account to pwn your system without you ever realizing.

    As long as we are using X, Linux desktops will remain worse security-wise than Mac OS or even Windows...

    Actually, it is. I have two Wayland (Arch) and Mir (Ubuntu) installations for development and Wayland is almost ready for day-to-day use. Check out the gnome/wayland wiki - it is not 100% there, but...

    We've always known that X is a security disaster, but it wasn't clear until now just how broken it is.

    This POS is unsalvageable.

    Gallium Nine, no. D3D10 is probably useless (pretty much no games use that) and D3D11 is sufficiently different that it would have to be implemented from scratch.

    I can't imagine this happening...

    Hey isn't that the spirit of Phoronix Forums? Trolls trolling trolls ad nauseam.

    Debian+systemd is perfect. The only downside is that this didn't happen sooner - we Arch users have been enjoying...

    You remember incorrectly.

    The choice was between systemd, upstart, openrc, sysvinit and further discussion (FD). All 8 CTTE members voted that *any* alternative would be better than staying with...

    Which is, of course, irrelevant.

    If you have to do a code review you have to go through each line regardless. I'd much rather review 500 lines of readable code than 2000 lines of boilerplate. C#...

    DirectX has little to do with .Net. Besides, the leading DirectX wrapper for .Net is open-source, as is the equivalent OpenGL wrapper.

    MIT license *and* a patent promise. Can you feel the winds of change?

    Mono is being updated as we speak (incomplete implementations will be replaced by the end of the week). Lots of partying at...

    I haven't gone around to Android yet, but I will do so once my Wayland implementation is complete.

    I've been working with libinput since three months ago, and it is quite clean and well-designed. Documentation is ok, but many code examples are using outdated versions of the library (so be careful...

    I didn't expect this to happen so soon. I'm stunned and thrilled, in equal parts. We are actually getting ahead of Apple in OpenGL support, how awesome is that?

    One thing I am really looking...

    And more proof:


    This reveals a deeply ingrained discrimination against women.

    Please do not try to argue that there is no proof of discrimination. The real question is what are we doing to...
