    Phoronix: Other Letdowns For Linux / Open-Source Fans From 2015

    When ending out 2015 I wrote about some of the open-source Linux letdowns of the year while since then Phoronix readers have suggested more items that they were sad to see not materialize this year...

    This whole Openshot 2.0 thing is killing me. I really, really want to try it out. It should be such a large upgrade.

      Even in "Other Letdowns" no mention of the 4 month delay of the HTC Vive. That would be by far the biggest one for me besides no Vulkan.

        Because it's really not something Linux/open-source specific.

          I disagree. Probably you didn't track the amazing Pitivi video editor and GStreamer Editing Services progress.

I still wouldn't compare Pitivi to the commercial/proprietary options available on other platforms, etc. Perhaps in a year or two it will be, but not for 2015.

                My year's disappointment was the missed opportunity for an ideal ARM linux laptop launch when Intel missing the tick, Windows 10 sold poorly and the surplus of DDR3 RAM in the market. That's the problem with always procrastinating on FOSS driver development, when the market is ready, you're not.

                Hopefully 2016 won't disappoint in this regard.

                  Also: Still waiting for that intel dri3 PRIME sync (for use in combination with radeon)... Is this ignored on purpose?

                    Alright, it's got nothing to do with open-source. But it will probably affect Linux gaming, so it's at least vaguely connected. But, okay.
