    I disagree with this interpretation of the role of Steam Machines, because PC gaming is defined by its environment. Consoles are couch machines, you use two hands on a controller, analog sticks et...

    Of course not, they are predominantly tech illiterate and even then so few people care about owning their computers to know about this stuff. But this is really no different than most license...

    1. Vulcan will be an API and a shader language. Just like OpenGL is. Just like every graphics API is. The API will hopefully be a dumb library that calls into the minimal amount of fixed function...

    Still bummed that 15.04 is stuck with X 1.16. 1.17 was a huge improvement and came out at the start of February, a lot of time to include it.

    If Khronos wants to avoid the hell that was OpenGL versioning and extensions, they must have a blessed reference implementation of a Vulkan and OpenCL 2.1 -> SPIR-V compiler. Otherwise we are going...

    Are we getting that stupid unthreaded renderer when running Mesa thing fixed yet? It is ridiculous how much of a performance and UX hit it is to not have the render thread working on a majority of...

    Maybe they are just going to 4.14 in their next release and LTSing that until KDE5 is well baked?

    Thats odd, I put the 70+ crowd on Kubuntu on purpose, so they don't get a billion viruses and their computer auto-updates all their software. Under 70 often are on Windows because they want their...

    I use kmail just because I like the day to day UX better than tabs, but I put almost everyone I know on Thunderbird.

    Sucks that 15.04 won't have X 1.17, even though it was out for weeks before the feature freeze. Huge improvements on GLAMOR.

    Too bad you can never tell that, since its a blob.

    The fundamental issue of firmware is that it is probably the software in your computer that can most easily completely abscond your privacy and...

    If plasma2 ran on Weston you could have Wayland tomorrow. Even at that, you can currently run Weston -> KWin -> Plasma and have a Wayland KDE desktop.

    At this point I'm starting to get the vibe...

    Pretty much the only good thing about UEFI is how it can stub load kernels. Why the hell are the systemd guys trying to go backwards here? Every EFI implementation needs to provide its own boot menu,...

    I don't know why no motherboard vendor thinks this is an option. It would take very little effort considering they are already paying huge contracts to American Megatrends or whatever asshole is...

    I think it would be a much better use of Red Hat & Canonicals money to get more people on the platform. That means selling Fedora and Ubuntu notebooks and desktops in stores. That means advertising...

    The last computers I've thrown away were either hardware broken or a 2002 Pentium 4 desktop and 2003 Compaq laptop. IE, stuff so old it no longer does its job. Of course you don't just throw away...

    I think it is incredibly stupid to have versoning that does not mean anything at all. When every other project in the universe either does major.minor.patch where major means backwards breaking...

    Why yes? I thought Debian asks you what desktop you want in their non-live default image. Why can't the Crunchbang group just push their customized Openbox layout as an option there?

    I was under the impression that Germany actually has a law that any PC vendor must sell their computers without an included operating system as an option. I read it somewhere, but googling for it is...

    Buying refurbished does not really matter at all, but do not conflate community efforts to make Thinkpads work with Linux as "support". Support, depending on who is talking, either means it works, or...
