    Phoronix: On The Heels Of An Impressive Launch

    Those that follow my Twitter feed know a big software announcement is pending after being set back multiple times over the past week. Here's one graph illustrating the real-world impact of this yet-to-be-announced open-source move for open operating systems...

    Q posted that a Dirndl is a nice set of boobs. Which it isn't. It can accompany one though.

No less interesting, particularly if this is as mentioned in the article cl333r linked to, that you don't need to make changes in the code in order for this compiler to work it's magic in utilizing cpu+gpu very efficiently.
    ENZO has no price tag and never had I think because it was still beta.

    Literally all this says, its something named Dirndl that has performance increases. So very, very vague. Not once did the article say what it actually is.
    That's the entire point. FTA:

    Nope, in bit-tech link:
    PathScale's secretive technology promises to beat CUDA and OpenCL at the GPGPU game.
