    Look, I'm playing the devil's advocate. It isn't like I WANT them to fail. The only reason there's a Win installed at home is to play a few games once in a while. The work related cross-platform...

    As I've said, Source builds and runs on Linux.

    The problems are political, not technical. It is a nightmare to offer proper, commercial-grade support for Linux software. Please don't bull*** about...

    That is exactly my position too. WINE is only making the ecosystem worse.

    The purpose of FGLRX is to provide a driver for linux. The ugly truth is that the entire 'multimedia' stack in Linux is...

    Well it is a 'pet project' if you will. A hardware implementation of the 'production' system which is virtual (runs atop multi-socket multi-core x86). The goals were to make it entirely with...

    Ignorance is bliss.

    As I've said, except for the DTP niche who can stay where it is now (Apple) open source alternatives to Adobe's binary, bloated crap are better for PDF.

    Now, anyone up to...

    Cheese Man, look you got it all wrong. I mean, literally.

    You didn't understand anything I said. First, some of the 'offensive' stuff wasn't aimed at you, but at the other guy for whom changing...

    More bandwidth is always welcomed and, in my opinion, AGP was an idiocy in the grander scheme of things. PCI-Express is better only for the fact that any add-on board can be accommodated if nothing...

    Your post is so contrieved I won't even bother to respond to it in detail.

    First and foremost you completely missed the (bad) car (tires) analogy and you took it a little bit too personally. The...

    I won't even bother answering yotambien. His careful worded crap ("geek opinion", sounds like an with a MacBook Air and an MBA), his total willful ignorance on the subject of the quality of the Flash...

    Yes, you need to understand what access permissions ARE. That is part of using the operating system. Otherwise you are an utter ignorant who just wants to surf the net.

    Well, if AMD or nVidia don't release drivers for their cards for Windows, it will to lack 'native' (whatever that means to you) support for 3D acceleration.

    Uh, what planet are you from?

    Flash is a piece of s**t that gouges up 60% of a 2.8Ghz Phenom II and Acrobat reader takes ages to load and trashes and is unresponsive, compared to Evince, or any...

    Again, without going into details, X can't be "X" the way it is now.

    ATI's Mac OS X drivers are "firegl-class" and professional OpenGL support is excellent. I doubt that the ATI OpenGL team is stroking the weed to much.

    I don't want to get into an argument with you but not everything scales better upwards, or we don't have the same definition of scaling. Valve's Source engine, the variant from HL2:EP2 doesn't look...
