    Like sidux? The Linux distribution? I don't understand this...

    Actually, the only problem with Qaridarium is dyslexia. His points aren't any more "trollish" than other people's. It's just the way he writes the stuff that people find annoying. Dyslexia combined with his really poor English makes for quite ugly posts, but still, I don't think someone should be banned for being dyslectic and sucking at English.

    Title: 'City of Heroes' character 'Twixt' becomes game's most hated outcast courtesy of Loyola professor

    This professor only played by the rules, he's now a social outcast.

    Like sidux and other strict organizations, following rules verbatim leaves many social flaws open to exploit. This lets questionable and irritating behavior be an acceptable form of social exchange and also allows innocent behavior to be severely punished by accident.

    This method of governing is primitive. It helps people that are brainless make decisions better than their own stupid ideas. However, this method also prohibits thoughtful actions from being executed.

    You're a human, use the forum rules as a suggestion to keep your common sense on track, not to make the decisions for you.

    that would depend - if you're not having any problems with the radeon driver, don't replace it. If you have an "older" card not supported by fglrx, you can't replace it.
    What card are you using, kernel, etc etc etc?

    although there are some early indications that fermi will be a bit power hungry, everything is pure speculation until some proper benchmarks with the board are released (and even then, give the drivers some time to mature for it).

    Where are the facts to prove that? Especially the OpenCL, power-consuming and idle consuming parts...

    I think Q is right on one thing: NVIDIA can no longer live exclusively from desktop graphics cards, considering the fact that more and more people are only using AMD or Intel IGPs nowadays. So I believe the future for NVIDIA is Tegra2 and high-end cards for GPGPU. However, I don't worry, they are smart and will find the correct solutions, as usual.

    I said nvidia has money and u run off the cliff with it. Lets be clear: This is the year 2010, and nvidia is still here. I can go to the store and buy a nvidia gfx card. I can go buy an ion netbook. Therefore you saying "nvidia is bankrupt in 2010" is a load of flametard bullshit.
    Don't worry about it, he's just mocking his "favorite" graphics company by churning out millions of baseless theories and seeing what happens. I honestly think he's actually trying to make AMD look bad. Not only that, but by just making up stuff he's changing the perception of the entire AMD/ATI community to look very pathetic without any of their fans' participation. It's both epic and sad since everyone understands that except him.

    Many forums would have banned him by now - I don't know how long it will take him over here. I'm betting $10 he won't be using his current online handle in 1 month on Phoronix.
