    Nvidia wanted to use the kernel's DMA-BUF mechanism to bring Optimus to Linux. And then they ran into the first problem: DMA-BUF only allowed GPL symbols. So Nvidia asked the kernel developers if...
  2. Re: Another strike against Mir; Nvidia will support Wayland

    The good thing is that the open drivers and Mesa have really progressed far enough to the point where KMS works and native resolutions are supported right out of the box. Sure, radeon, radeonSI and...

    Re: MS Visual Studio

    If G++ is one of the recommendations I think you might be able to get away with staying on Mint. After all, even if you switched over to Windows, G++ would not accept MSVC-specific extensions or...
  4. Re: Another strike against Mir; Nvidia will support Wayland

    Well they definitely have to support X until the so-called replacements actually start gaining more traction, fair enough. But the likelihood of them pulling out of Linux entirely? Much lower; Nvidia...

  9. Re: "Intel Will Not Support Ubuntu's XMir" What will be the consequences?

    Then here's a quick history lesson.

    2010 - 2011
    - Ubuntu and Canonical announce a shift to Wayland as a replacement for X.
