  1. I have an HTC incredible that I'm still using,...

    I have an HTC incredible that I'm still using, but I can't run a modern OS on it because the proprietary driver is not supported for any. Should this, in theory, allow Android 4.x to run on the...

    I've contacted the Maui Project about the lack of 32 bit builds for their LiveCD, and they say as long as they have to use QT5 git, offering a 32 bit version would be rather labor intensive. I'm...

    6% performance improvement across the board? Sounds like the next step. What does this mean for out-of-tree Direct3D and CUDA state trackers?

    I was really excited about Unity because of its global menu, but then it was made to auto-hide, and the old categorized application approach was never adopted with the launcher.. it was just another...

    If they're not accepting FOSS d3d9 drivers in WINE, then they're pulling a Sun Microsystems. Maybe WINE is being turned into the next MySQL? A fork would also allow for a rebranding.. How much of...

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/5930999/

    Confirmed. DPM working correctly. Small max clock improvement, if any. I do recall when I took my Kill-a-watt to it several months ago, Catalyst had a *lot* lower...

    2.6x

    It looks like the nVidia driver clocks the cores/memory at about 2.6x what Nouveau does. According to these benchmarks, that puts Nouveau at more than 80% of nVidia's performance per clock already :D...
  13. As an Ubuntu gamer..

    I'd use this if the performance is really that much better. I've got an i7-3770 and a GeForce GTX 660Ti.. I use nVidia drivers as it is and I have no objection to it. I paid good money for this rig,...

    Oh yes, I can play Nova with my Nexus 10 charged and plugged in, and still end up with 50% battery left. USB2 doesn't provide enough juice.

    I always do backups before installing a new OS anyways, so, I really don't care. I installed Ubuntu Touch Preview on my Nexus 10, and I'm seriously considering the ChromeBook Pixel. I'd be unlocking,...
