    Hm...we're getting pretty close to 16.04 LTS yet still no Unity 8/Mir in sight. Is it going to arrive in 15.10 at least? I'm starting to get the feeling they'll miss the LTS target once again.

    Vulkan is so exciting. Glad AMD was able to force Khronos' (and everyone else') hand to actually overhaul their APIs for a new era in gaming. It also comes at a right time when mobile hardware is...

    Any chance we could see the Linux kernel be rewritten with Rust...say version 2.0+, within the next decade?
  4. Is SPIR-V directly competing with HSA? Or only...

    Is SPIR-V directly competing with HSA? Or only parts of it? Can't AMD just give it to Khronos to manage, too, so Intel and Nvidia would be more willing to join it? Or does AMD intend to use this one...

    Hopefully Skylake at least will support Vulkan, even if not out of the gate. Although ideally it should be from Haswell and up.

    Yup. I'm hoping after Rust matures enough (let's say version 2.0), it will be adopted by the Linux kernel community and that they would start slowly replacing parts of the kernel with Rust. However,...

    Isn't QUIC more of a replacement for UDP? CurveCP sounds very nice in theory, but I think there are some problems with it. There's also MinimaLT and Trevor Perrin's "Noise" (although that one is...

    Shame mandatory encryption is out. And only a year after the IETF almost unanimously decided that it's time to push for an "encrypt everything" Internet.

    I agree.

    Rust - C/C++ replacement for most "native" and security focused apps, as well as being ideal for writing browsers, kernels, games, and so on.

    Go - Java/C# replacement with much nicer...
  11. Windows RT is virtually dead. Why do you think...

    Windows RT is virtually dead. Why do you think that is? Because Microsoft couldn't backport support for all of its x86 apps. So it had to start from SCRATCH with apps for Windows RT, with MUCH fewer...

    Sigh. Google is making such a strategic mistake of catastrophic proportions helping Intel own Chromebooks, when it could just as easily be ARM, since you pretty much only need to run web apps on top...

    So Canonical intends to support 32-bit until 2021? That seems crazy to me. 16.04 LTS should be 64-bit only.

    You're kidding. IE is incompatible with tons of new stuff...WebGL, WebRTC, and so on.

    What are the differences as of now between Wayland and Mir? Which is more ahead/higher performance?

    Only 0.3? That's like 0.1 per year. At this rate Mir 1.0 won't be available until Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

    I didn't mean the chips are not used, but that the name isn't. Everyone calls it x64. That's why I said not too many people would confuse ARM64 with AMD64, since not many are using AMD64 in...

    Good stuff. I wish ARM called it "ARM64" instead of "AArch64", though. I know they must've thought it would be confused with AMD64, but I doubt it because nobody really uses AMD64, and it would've...

    This is awesome. I've been waiting for this for a while now. It should make custom ROM support so much easier now.

    You're better off going with a dedicated card with the same performance...it will actually be cheaper than Intel's Iris Pro.
