Reddit: [ELI5]: VulkanAPI compensates for cheap drivers?

Tuesday 10th of May 2016 10:05:49 AM

Will VulkanAPI compensate for cheap drivers, like NVIDIA's drivers? Is it possible, by NVIDIA trying to be VulkanAPI compatible and VulkanAPI being more low-level, to get a better video card experience, closer to Windows graphical applications' performance?

Reddit: What are the NEGATIVES of OpenSUSE (and why is it unpopular?)

Tuesday 10th of May 2016 09:58:55 AM

I am currently using Mint 17.3 Cinnamon and will be switching to Manjaro or OpenSuse next. The reading I've done online tells me that while Mint and Manjaro are easy to use and popular, the are looked down on by Linux vets (usually for good reasons). However in terms of OpenSUSE there is nothing but praise. I have never seen anyone say anything negative about OpenSUSE, the only thing close to negativity is that it has a small community. This leads me to wonder why such an old distro that is universally praised by veterans, as well as easy to use, is unpopular?

TuxMachines: Aspiring sys admin works his way up in Linux

Tuesday 10th of May 2016 09:21:52 AM

I first saw Linux in action around 2001 at my first job. I was as an account manager for an Austrian automotive industry supplier and shared an office with our IT guy. He was creating a CD burning station (one of those huge things that can burn and print several CDs simultaneously) so that we could create and send CDs of our car parts catalogue to customers. While the burning station was originally designed for Windows, he just could not get it to work. He eventually gave up on Windows and turned to Linux, and it worked flawlessly.

  • Open-source vs. Proprietary – Keeping Ideology Out of the Equation
    Most users of software sensibly employ a mixture of software tools that span open-source, closed-source, proprietary, ‘free’ and in-house. Many modern software developers also decide to use a hybrid of open-source and proprietary models within an integrated code-base. Advocating either open-source only, or commercial only, software dogmas are both narrow-minded and unhelpful in allowing the researcher or the business the freedom to deliver the best outcomes.
