    This is incorrect. The reason you do not need glasses when using a telescope or microscope is because you can adjust the focus to compensate.

    VR headsets project (in the mathematical sense) the...

    Strictly speaking, I don't think LP has actually been directly involved in the kernel. The kdbus guys seem to be mostly kernel devs, with some ties to Red Hat (and indirectly, systemd). So while...

    Multiple implementations are always a good thing.


    It looks like the Iterable interface already supports map, reduce, etc.
    Since LINQ is just functional programming with SQL-like syntax and a...

    No problem. :)



    There was a reason I only referred to language features, as opposed to OOP. OOP is a design pattern - much like functional programming, you can do it in any language which...

    Mostly it comes down to being aware of what's going on behind the scenes, and the performance implications of it. For example, the circular buffer implementation supports lockless access in single...

    I disagree, and I say that as someone who is familiar with (Linux) kernel programming. The main thing you get from C is that you easily see the assembly the code maps to by just reading it, without...

    My initial impression was that D supports many of the same features as Ceylon, but after reading through the introduction, it really does have some very nice syntax, particularly around its type...

    C# is indeed a very nice language, but D blows its pants off. Its syntax and features are basically a superset of C#'s, adding things like compile-time code generation and reflection (run-time...

    AMD simply can't compete on process when they sold off their fabs and Intel didn't.

    They've also screwed their desktop segment as well - the FX-8350 is 3 years old now, and might as well be their...

    Here's my take on it, having read the mailing list thread:
    The kernel devs regard kdbus as a core kernel feature, and as such want it to use syscalls. (They also generally dislike ioctls due to the...
  11. Systemd's versioning approach makes sense given...

    Systemd's versioning approach makes sense given the incremental anture of kernel development, but the kernel can't switch to it because that would break existing infrastructure that compares version...

    Well, that's what I get for just grepping the license instead of actually reading it. :P
  13. To be fair, those clauses are intended to address...

    To be fair, those clauses are intended to address a real issue: once you have an established project, it's pretty much impossible to change the license unless the original license allows you to. And...

    Linus said he removed the 'or later' clause from the license, but if I look at my clone of the 3.18 kernel:



    So the kernel could actually be used with GPLv3 code - the only barriers to doing so...

    Guys, they're called 96 boards for a reason. They are literally releasing 96 boards at this price point, with a defined minimum feature-set and standardized expansion/GPIO headers. This has the...

    This is nothing new - the GPL was always designed to prioritize the freedom of users over developers. This is particularly obvious with the GPLv3.

    I don't believe GNU packages are under attack, I...

    I agree that the second problem doesn't apply.
    That said, I'm not sure there's a meaningful difference between creating an opportunity that is only available to a certain demographic, and denying it...

    I agree. Even Facebook, which employs some of the key D developers, pushes Hack much more strongly. Although I'm not hugely familiar with C++, AIUI D has features that never made it into C++11, like...
