    No no, of course not. As you say, Apple don't make the panels (although they do buy up most of the capacity of many of their components, so the rest of the industry is locked out practically).

    But...

    Huh? Surely what's holding us back is that there aren't any high-DPI desktop displays actually available to buy, nor is there yet a cabling standard capable of transmitting (for example) 4K images.
  3. Are you talking about the ligature mechanism?...

    Are you talking about the ligature mechanism? Because that isn't as complicated as you are describing. A font designer will include the ligatures for all 'ligaturiseable' pairs (such as 'fi', 'ff',...

    AFAIK, HDMI simply doesn't support 2560x1600. Even DVI only does in Dual-Link mode, and requires a Dual-Link cable which has approximately twice as many conductors as a regular DVI cable.

    Is the test suite not up to much? I get the impression from the project that the overwhelming majority of the effort (limited though the manpower is) goes into the invisible framework stuff...

    It seems though as if the GNUstep project has done quite a lot of work. Even if it needs fixing up, would it not be less work than reimplementing it from scratch?

    It appears that Cocoa is a very...

    This kind of post is why I love Phoronix so much. You can get all the rudeness and venom you need from a single forum!

    The mind boggles.

    What on Earth? The Illumos folks are developing ZFS out in the open and its receiving new features all the time. Oracle are continuing their closed version, but Illumos has broken compatibility with...

    Well, okay, I was facetious. But I thought my argument (which is really only a gripe with your argument) was quite clear: you state that Pulseaudio is bad simply because it is a daemon. But...

    Oh no - not.... DAEMONS! In my opinion Linux should get rid of all the daemons. They are the problem. Especially when they don't make a whole area of Linux usage work automatically and uniformly.

    This viewpoint is common and intuitive, but unfortunately is a complete fallacy, for the following reason.

    While analogue appears at first glance to be of infinite resolution, it is susceptible to...
  15. Well, not really. My argument against...

    Well, not really. My argument against inconsistency in critique is valid whatever. I think though that what you are saying is that abandoning the "UNIX Way" is perfectly acceptable in the cases where...

    Yes it does. In addition to the huge number of other things it does. It handles all networking (including firewalling/bridging/routing), filesystems, all that KMS stuff, the ALSA layer, crypto...

    ...I'd install the Linux kernel!

    *Badoom tssch!*

    Also, note that the lack of preemption support this isn't by design - it's a bug. Work is underway to fix it.
