    That may not be possible in software... depending on how it's been implemented, the whole thing could be handled in hardware, with the kernel sound system having no idea that this behaviour is...
  2. But that only works if the two are similar enough...

    But that only works if the two are similar enough that it's possible to adapt one to the other in the library - and the library is already doing that to some extent, hiding differences in wire...

    Not quite. Major design changes would have that effect, but some changes can be adopted without affecting userspace. None of those millions of lines of code are currently talking to kdbus - they all...

    Looks pretty minimalist... maybe they figure that given that X% is just a shorthand for X/100, a dedicated key is unnecessary?

    To be honest, it might... there's no shortage of buggy EFI implementations out there...

    And that's not just for dynamic languages like Python or Javascript. That's C++, C#, Java... pretty much anything that isn't the native C bindings.

    What's to get rid of? Fedora has long had a 64-bit build, which to my knowledge, contains few (if any) 32-bit binaries by default - they have to be installed deliberately. And they'd face protests if...

    Yeah, I assume he's talking about Rust, since that's the only language project I'm aware of at Mozilla. But that's a systems language, not a web one - it's a replacement for C/C++, not for Javascript.
  9. I doubt it. There's a lot of software (both open...

    I doubt it. There's a lot of software (both open and closed source) that aims for portability between different UNIX platforms - if you change things so that something as simple as /bin/sh can no...
  10. Sure, but that was done mostly for packaging...

    Sure, but that was done mostly for packaging reasons, it being easier to assume that *everything* is in /usr, than to have things arbitrarily divided between /bin and /usr/bin - and it only works...

    Because there's nothing like screwing with compatibility just because you dislike the directory names...

    Yeah, people might not type google.com in the URL bar, but that doesn't mean they're not dependent on stuff hosted on Google servers.

    It's obviously a slow news day, isn't it? Though it's already attracted a couple of pages of comments...

    Anything is better than their current situation, considering how the systemd argument played out over the months.

    I just figure that providing a mechanism for proxies in the case of a...

    Not seeing a benefit in that. If the candidate is standing aside due to a conflict of interest, surely anyone he nominated to represent his position on the subject would also have the same conflict...

    That's the best part of the GPL, in my mind. It's a perfect legal hack - the defendant gains nothing from challenging it, because if they succeed, they lose all the rights it granted them... they're...

    They're not patenting binary searches - they're patenting an application of binary search techniques to a specific problem domain. Which is still ridiculous, because there's a huge amount of prior...

    Why? Which intermediate steps does the browser require, that are not required by a dedicated application? It downloads (streams?) the file in the same way, it decodes it using the same libraries...

    Yeah, that's the *one* thing that I just have to use shell extensions for. Pretty much everything else is fine, but the default Alt-tab behaviour is just crazy...
