    Very very cool, looks like the graphics drivers are going to be amazing over the next few years.

      This Conner fella seems like he is going to be a really awesome software engineer. If he does swing past these forums and sees this - Hi - keep up the awesome work and good luck!

        Sounds like he may be working on the radv driver.

          Tbh with linux they should start from scratch, base is clunky, linux is doomed as it is, better to start something new if they want to target desktop

            Huh, who should start from scratch?

              Are you talking about the kernel or what? I would call you a troll but the possibility of you not knowing what you are talking about seems high (so I am refraining in doing so).

                While it's not perfect, it's good enough.
                Maybe if they contributed to it and improved it instead of starting from scratch. Or maybe contributing to existing projects, like HURD or RedoxOS...
                Or even reengineering Linux writen in Rust and Object Oriented?

                Starting a kernel from scratch would only be justifiable if Linux had serious/unfixable design, performance or security flaws. Which it doesn't, AFAIK...

                    outside of your alternative reality the only growing desktop(chromebooks) is linux
