    Re: Arguments against open source drivers?

    Well, afaik, they are keeping some stuff that they licensed closed source, but actively support the open source drivers.

    Re: Arguments against open source drivers?

    ATI are open sourcing their drivers. So this doesn't seem to convincing.

    Then we seem to have different definitions of harsh. Some examples:

    I don't know, I find that very harsh.

    But the post is factually incorrect. You don't see this as a problem?

    On behalf of an other member

    Hi,

    this is probably pretty unusual, but I stumbled over some posts by an other user and they think mods made several mistakes in handling these posts.

    So I hope it is ok to bring this up here....

    Re: HTML5 a blessing for Linux?

    I was referring to you not knowing the licenses firefox uses.


    It would be an issue, as firefox is (also) under the GPL. AFAIK including h.264 would break the GPL


    But the problem is that...

    Re: HTML5 a blessing for Linux?

    I fully agree.

    And as an aside, h.264 isn't secure from submarine patents either.

    Re: HTML5 a blessing for Linux?

    I don't want to come off as rude, but wouldn't spending 30 seconds on some research be a good idea before engaging in a discussion?

    Same problem here. Flash doesn't work after the latest update.

  18. Re: Why was the bunk intel driver included in Jaunty?

    Look, first off, as I already mentioned, Intel had already shipped working drivers before jaunty came out. Now is it Intel's fault that they weren't included?

    Second, the current problems with the...
  19. Re: Why was the bunk intel driver included in Jaunty?

    I think that's exactly the reason.
    To be fair, I think it's understandable that projects as complex as ubuntu have to have a version freeze sometime before a release. And I also can understand that...
  20. Re: Why was the bunk intel driver included in Jaunty?

    The only problem of course is that these drivers are stable and were already stable when jaunty was released.

  22. Re: Why was the bunk intel driver included in Jaunty?

    It's even worse. By the time they shipped jaunty there were already newer...
  23. Re: Why was the bunk intel driver included in Jaunty?

    Oh, are those the files that weren't supposed to exist as you claimed the drivers were part of the kernel and it wasn't ubuntu's fault? ;)

  25. Re: Why was the bunk intel driver included in Jaunty?

    Nope, that's simply not true. The driver is not part of the kernel. That why you can download the driver separately and why ubuntu can provide newer and better drivers in a semi-official ppa that...
