    There are already two good monikers: glNext and OpenGL NG. I wonder why they aren't used.

    Why are people hellbent on giving me exceptions ("a lot of") as an example of broken compatibility in Windows, whereas in Linux API/ABI compatibility is just not there at all? ISVs will not create...

    Really? Then why not a single Loki ported game works correctly and fully in all modern Linux distros? Not to mention a totally broken Loki installer which refuses to run with modern glibc and...

    Porting is one thing, maintaining forever (since API/ABI compatibility in Linux is a joke, whereas in Windows you compile once and then run for years, or even decades) is another.

    No, RedHat and...

    BS. Pure BS.

    Most AAA (>90%) games nowadays require D3D11.

    Michael,

    I don't understand you.

    NVIDIA was bad for not supporting Nouveau, now they are bad for providing some pieces of documentation. You perfectly know their drivers have 3d party...

    I generally disagree with Stefan because D3D state trackermakes almost all D3D9 games bugs free as opposed to still incomplete/buggy D3D9->OpenGL translation implemented by Wine.

    The real question...

    The performance impact from using encryption is negligible only on Intel Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs.

    Pentium and Celeron CPUs have hardware accelerated AES instructions disabled (stupid Intel).

    Where's reliable software mixing of input and output? Where? Why even in 2015 I've got a situation when applications block all other applications from using my sound card?

    Windows has this problem...

    1. Audio in Linux is still largely broken.
    2. MS Word 2013 will open Word 2000 documents without any problems.
    3. Maintaining backwards compatibility is the key to success, as seen by Windows,...

    If Linux distros in 2014 are so easy to install, a developer cannot do that, that says a lot about the quality of OSS. What quality, I might add.
  12. Actually one of the developers read this damning...

    Actually one of the developers read this damning list of Linux problems and agreed with it wholeheartedly. You may disagree with certain points, saying "I don't care", "I don't have this problem" or...

    Nothing can beat Terminus.

    Nothing. Trust me. Once you've tried it, you'll never return to anything else.

    3 AAA games for a year.

    Michael, are you serious? It's a milestone for Linux gaming? It's an embarrassment. Loki around 1999-2000 ported almost three dozen AAA games - that was something to...

    For a second I thought "game" meant wild animals, birds, and fish that are hunted for food, especially as a sport ;-)

    The irony is that it's probably the case.

    Speak for yourself, Michael. Can you tell us how many Linux users encode at all? I guess it's less than 1%. And out of this percent, can you tell us what codecs people prefer? I've never seen a...

    Bullocks. What matters to the user is performance and performance only (stability too, but GCC rarely miscompiles the code and such errors are usually fixed in a timely manner).

    I would remove the drawing and leave only the logo.

    Sorry, the drawing doesn't appeal to me.

    It's funny how many idiots are out there.

    In this single thread there are two very vocal idiots, luckily, both are now on my ignore list.

    Both have never compiled a single line of code, yet...

    This mantra, "which compiler compiles faster" is actually a horse byproduct to put it mildly.

    Absolutely most programmers are only interested in the speed of the resulting code: it has to be the...
