    I have never experienced anything like that with my 680 card. But I rarely boot Linux on the machine. All my dedicated Linux machines have Intel cards.
  2. nVidia is a typical corporation and always has...

    nVidia is a typical corporation and always has been. They "care" about open-source only when they can get some free publicity out of it which means basically never.

    What to do? Boycott nVidia...

    I'd say it's frustrating but hardly scary. Mozilla has made a lot bad of decisions in recent years and FF usage share isn't what it used to be.

    They have a calculator app?! Amazing. Inconceivable. I mean how come no other OS has ever had one? Truly Canonical are tech visionaries of our time.

    I don't see how open-sourcing Windows could help anything. Two main reasons:

    1) Look at Ubuntu. It's open source and it's garbage - because a corporation is in charge of its development. As long...

    He's either lying or simply doesn't know what the real situation is. The latter is more likely, especially if he's some sort of "project manager" who never actually works with the tools he praises so...

    Why would anyone install OpenBSD on something that has nVidia video card? And even if somebody does, why would they need a specific driver? It's a server OS and GUI is about the last thing it needs.

    Good point. But many people feel insecure when there's a huge crowd they don't belong to. That's why iThings are so popular.


    Err. If you said SSH, I'd agree wholeheartedly. But bashing Windows...

    But this is exactly the attitude of your average user. The truth is that people who don't know Linux usually don't know Windows either - really, they don't know anything beyond booting up the system...

    Despite the heroic efforts of Poettering&Co, Linux will never catch up with the rate at which the masses are getting dumber. Ergo, Linux will never be ready for the masses.

    And it's probably a...

    Why? We want to protect FOSS code from corporations who don't contribute back. And that's what GPL is for. Nobody cares what they do with non-GPL code.

    This lawsuit is long overdue I'd say. It's not so much about singling out VMware as it's about sending a message to everyone: GPL is serious. If you don't want to abide by its rules, you're free to...

    So this is what they've ruined desktop Ubuntu experience for? Talk about idée fixe...

    It would be funny if it weren't so sad.

    TB is great - the only e-mail client worth using (not counting the CLI clients of course). It's nice to see that Mozilla is still working on it.

    I'm not a fan of systemd in general for various reasons I don't want to repeat from my previous posts. But from a purely practical point of view the abomination could be barely tolerable if not for...

    Boot Guard has only one application - it's a tool that facilitates the implementation of vendor-locked x86 firmware. Intel knew full well what they were doing and the blame lies squarely on them.

    Indeed. Why the hell can't I choose how much is my system exposed to security risks?

    Boot Guard is a kick in the balls I didn't expect from Intel. Not even allowing us to opt out is really, really...

    ^This was true 15 years ago. You need to quit living in the past. Lenovo's ThinkPads are garbage and the only consistent thing about them is that they're consistently getting worse every year.
