    Yeah. If I want Final Fantasy on Linux, I'll just install PCSX and PCSX2 and borrow the PS1/PS2 discs for FF 1, 2, and 4 through X from the living room. Better to emulate the good ones than play the...

    I should have been more clear. What I meant is that languages like D, Go, and various LISPs either cannot be run without their runtime (eg. garbage collection not optional) or using them without...

    And I know PHP, Python, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, Lua, C, shell script, a bit of C++ and Java, and I used to know a bit of Perl... Python is my favourite for exactly that purpose and I'd be curious...

    ...but, at the same time, a templating language that hasn't kept up with developments in templating. Hence so many people use templating engines like Twig and Smarty/Dwoo for PHP.

    Actually, Rust is pretty much unique in having a lot of similarities to C++11 but with compile-time enforcement of the C++ best practices for memory management and an ABI that allows foreign calls...

    Unless you're building a retro box. Then you wanna start researching the bazillion different models of SoundBlaster 16 and head over to eBay to pick one up.
  8. I'll wait until you have an opportunity to...

    I'll wait until you have an opportunity to benchmark it. I've seen a lot of boards that looked faster than the Pi but benched slower due to things like a weak FPU.

    (I am hopeful though. Last I...

    In all fairness, though, I am quite worried about libinput. One of the stated design goals was to factor out a lot of the bugs by "using sane defaults to prune back the combinatorial explosion of...

    It's using musl which is a lot less broken than glibc and does provide the same APIs... just not perfect ABI compatibility yet.

    (The lead musl developer is the guy who "bashed" systemd because he...

    More like my motherboard's Intel HDA is not so good. To make it work reliably, I was forced to set tsched=0 and I suspect your hardware didn't require that.

    PA only uses 0.0% CPU on my system when...

    Ugh. Athlon II X2 270. I hate it when I don't notice typos until it's too late.

    I'd consider "despite my best efforts, PulseAudio idles at 4% CPU (8% of one core) on an AthlonII X2 260 if an application decides to hold open its audio handle without actually playing anything" an...

    Good to know. I never had IWD when I was a kid but I picked it up on GOG a while ago so, now that I'm working to actually play all of the GOG games I bought because "I always wanted this as a kid",...

    It's also on GOG.com for those who want it DRM-free.

    I don't have the URLs handy, but it has been explained, in detail, why all of those options are unsuitable... both here and on LWN, either directly or as links to blog posts.

    From what I remember,...

    I think it's a mix of the following:

    wxWidgets wraps a platform-native toolkit. On Linux, the wxWidgets backend is wxGTK, so it should already be covered with little or no effort.

    I'll agree that ridiculous arguments are a problem, but some of us (usually the ones who remain fairly quiet) have a different issue with the accuracy of that figure.

    If Steam reports 1-2%, what...

    I haven't used LXQt yet but the GTK+ version of PCManFM offers to handle automounting so it wouldn't surprise me if pcmanfm-qt also offered it.
