    I don't see how systemd gets in the way of you doing that yourself. Make a script/program which attempts to connect to your server and returns 0 on success or 1 on failure. Use cron or systemd timers...

    I do that a lot, myself (open a few tabs with middle-click, view later), but hundreds does seem like a lot. I'd have a hard time finding anything in that mess of tabs (although normally I just go...

    Well, they could be, if they're promoting something, like "Booking.com" or the garage sale that's going to happen two weeks from now at that house down the road, or the local little-league game. ;)

    They also use Apache, sshd, and various other standard tools (bash, for instance), and most of those, arguably, have a larger attack surface. Not every server out there is running the same version of...

    But is that really such a big deal? If that bug is patched, the whole Linux world is saved! On a more serious note: you probably aren't using multiple distributions, on various computers,...

    CMOS is just the type of memory that (traditionally) the bios settings (and bios itself?) are stored in. coreboot is just intended to replace the system firmware, which has traditionally been the...

    See the little box under the Booking.com panel, the one that says "SPONSORED"? Yeah, that means that someone payed to have that there. It's also promoting a site which I otherwise might not know...

    I don't see why you can't, at the same time, have something that "Just Works"(tm) and something that you can customize however you like it. Am I missing something?

    If you want that much control,...

    A dock is basically a special window that stays at the bottom (or top, or side) of the screen, and may hide or not. It doesn't need to be it's own compositor, but to work as expected it needs a...

    Patched/fixed. Calm your tits, I don't recall saying you never experienced any problems, I said (in my experience) Fedora is buggy.

    You should expect issues if you do anything custom, especially...

    I've been using ArchLinux since it switched to systemd, and it's been rock-solid. I've also used fedora on-and-off (before and after they switched to systemd) for a couple of years prior to switching...

    Wayland is an API, to be implemented by toolkits and frameworks. Gtk and Qt, for instance, are toolkits which implement the Wayland interfaces. Gtk also implements a network interface backend, btw...

    As far as GRUB is concerned, you could replace it with gummiboot (LGPL) on EFI systems, or GRUB-legacy (i.e. pre-1.0) on BIOS systems.

    That would be a horrible idea, even if it were possible (I don't believe it is, at least until Wayland is the primary rendering api). Catalyst, especially, is picky about the version of the Linux...

    You still can't blame AMD for that, getting rid of d3d and/or ogl won't make publishers suddenly port their games to Linux, a state-tracker won't suddenly make wine the perfect gaming platform (It'd...
  17. If a game isn't available for Linux, I generally...

    If a game isn't available for Linux, I generally won't buy it (ignoring console games, here, of course). I don't blame nvidia, amd, or intel for the lack of games, that would be short-sighted. It is...

    I knew I had read something about that somewhere, but couldn't find it to save my life. Here's a link to Martin's blog post from after the sprint, which contains some other relevant links. Though...

    Thanks, that's handy. It's not in the bash, sh, or tty man pages though, afaics. Edit: Ah, has it's own manpage...would be nice if it was referenced somewhere else, though. I knew about 'clear', but...

    I don't know a whole lot about shaders, so excuse me if I'm wrong, but you don't have to distribute them that way. You could distribute them uncompiled, and allow the client to compile them, but that...
