    Re: Where are the jobs?

    I don't think pure admin is a good route to take in this day and age. Learning some coding and going DevOps should get you lots of opportunities - perhaps even allow you to work remotely if you...

    Re: Ubuntu Research Paper

    What program are you in? Your task sounds very strange. Your list of features are lower level operating system concepts that are all handled by the kernel. None of these are done at the distribution...

    Re: Ubuntu Research Paper

    Since I suspect that Ubuntu was not specifically your assignment, might I suggest doing some research into other FOSS operating systems such as GNU Hurd, Haiku OS, or ReactOS?

    Re: Ubuntu Research Paper

    The answer is no. Ubuntu doesn't do anything special in the Linux kernel. Everything you list is handled by the core kernel. The only core functionality that a Linux distribution might change in the...
  5. Re: "Intel Will Not Support Ubuntu's XMir" What will be the consequences?

    So are we not allowed to cast judgement on anybody? I (even more frankly) disagree. Everybody is allowed to have an opinion. And to clarify, I am assuming you mean casting judgement as in deciding...
  6. Re: "Intel Will Not Support Ubuntu's XMir" What will be the consequences?

    I'm going to stop quoting and commenting on every point that people make because... well it's too much work :)



    So the obvious problem with this comparison is that systemd and upstart have...
  7. Re: "Intel Will Not Support Ubuntu's XMir" What will be the consequences?

    Wait, what? Wayland is "only" a protocol, that is (mostly) correct, and protocols are made to be implemented. Maybe you're getting choosy about the words used? I'm saying that Canonical could have...
  8. Re: "Intel Will Not Support Ubuntu's XMir" What will be the consequences?

    The reason according to AMD developers is that the workstation market needs Linux drivers that work, and that is where the money comes from. Large companies probably pay nVidia/AMD for support...
  9. Re: "Intel Will Not Support Ubuntu's XMir" What will be the consequences?

    I don't think I ever claimed it was forked or based on Wayland? In fact the problem I see is that it isn't. I know that, but you specifically said "This isn't the first time" and the last time...
  10. Re: "Intel Will Not Support Ubuntu's XMir" What will be the consequences?

    In what way does Mir help Canonical make use of Unity? By the way, Wayland is a standard with some helper libraries to implement that standard. There are very good reasons to want everybody to accept...
  11. Re: "Intel Will Not Support Ubuntu's XMir" What will be the consequences?

    Intel does many things that are not nice - if you follow GKH on G+ there are plenty of complaints about the way they do business. They are a huge corporation, what do you expect? It is expressly...

    Re: Is Canonical trying to do too much too soon?

    Oh wow, Shuttleworth sounds like a compulsive gambler, if not delusional in that article.
  13. Re: Marks Shuttleworth's message to all Ubuntu haters.

    They probably won't - their priority is to get Unity running on Mir and shipping it as fast as possible. Porting another desktop environment and then maintaining it is a lot of work which Canonical...
  14. Re: Marks Shuttleworth's message to all Ubuntu haters.

    I don't really understand the question to be honest, but I'll answer what I think you're asking. The reason Canonical will patch toolkits to work with Mir is that it's the only possible thing they...
  15. Re: Marks Shuttleworth's message to all Ubuntu haters.

    That is correct, but Canonical will be taking care of patching the toolkits to work with Mir unless they somehow convince upstream to maintain Mir compatibility for them.
  16. Re: Marks Shuttleworth's message to all Ubuntu haters.

    The fragmentation issue seems to be a non issue at this point. Both Mir and Wayland will use EGL, so hardware support will not be a problem. Meanwhile, none of the toolkits and DEs will support Mir...

    Re: Mir: Stop this train before it derails Ubuntu.

    Let me preface by saying I agree completely, but I wanted to discuss some of the points you are bringing up.




    Regarding drivers, my understanding from reading discussions elsewhere (namely...
  18. Re: PS4 OS runs on FreeBSD with GRUB bootloader: leak

    It's a very good move considering that Sony (like most East Asian companies) is not known for their software expertise. Might as well modify high quality software that has a permissive license.
  19. Re: Studying the Operating System World (and Programming etc) question(s)? :)

    An Operating System is one of the most complex pieces of software in the world to write. The path towards the ability to implement one is long and difficult, unless you happen to be a genius, anyway....

    Re: Mir vs. Wayland & effect on Linux "Ecosystem"?

    I personally think so. I think the realistic outcome is that Mir will miss the deadlines and hobble along until it dissipates under a mountain of technical debt and hard problems. It's not going to...

    Re: Mir vs. Wayland & effect on Linux "Ecosystem"?

    Because it's really low down the stack - anything that uses Mir libraries may need to be GPL'd depending on the legal specifics and many important applications would need to use the display server...

    Re: Gnome: The ethics of saying just "no"

    Apparently, the maintainer was just tired after closing multiple instances of the same request. He should probably have marked it as duplicate, but hey, people are fallible.

    Poll: Re: Career: Network Engineer vs Software Engineer ?

    Both paths are reasonably sensible and secure, so I think it wouldn't be irresponsible to say that you should do what you love. In your case it seems to be software dev, so go for it.

    Re: Socially Awkward Penguin has a complaint

    I agree with lykwydchykyn, networking support is not a major issue with Linux hardware support these days. I'm sure there are people who have problems with specific chips, but I'm not the one making...

    In your case, the arduino probably makes the most sense.
