    I disagree. People are not capable (anymore) of processing information because of the piecemeal fashion of internet news. This is a disturbing development.

    Yes, it was a little joke (no big deal). I hope I did not offend anyone.

    Unfortunately, those substitutions can be legitimate words for others--just plain wrong, what you want to read, or what you think it meant to say (when it really meant something entirely different). It can be especially bad if you're somewhat dyslexic and don't know it.

    Take that, you trolls...

    With Intel, AMD (ATI) and Nvidia covered, there's only VIA left to support with FreeBSD.
    There's still work to be done to make it day-to-day usable, but indeed; this is going to make my life a bit easier. I can't wait for the different KMS projects to all be (good enough to be) enabled by default.
