Filed under
KDE

aseigo.blogspot: Every so often (this is today's theme) I hear someone say something along the lines of, "I don't need Nepomuk Desktop Search.

I have been aware of the fact that GTK wants to do client-side window decorations since it was mentioned on the EWMH mailinglist and I think it is a completely stupid idea which has the potential to destroy one of the most important advantages of the free desktop:

Even then, I suspect you are using open source software and just don’t know it. Even Microsoft has embraced open source by including open source versions of big data repository Hadoop on Azure, and they count Hortonworks and Cloudera among their valued partners. And if you’re really one of those rare open-source-free enterprises, you might want to reevaluate your situation: you’re in an increasingly small minority. Read more

Raspberry Pi's Gallium3D Driver Could Now Run Significantly Faster

Eric Anholt, the lead developer developer behind the Broadcom VC4 Mesa/Gallium3D driver stack for supporting the Raspberry Pi, has announced a new performance achievement. Eric implemented a user-space buffer object cache for the Gallium3D driver. This buffer object cache is designed after the user-space cache he designed for Intel's driver while being employed by them. This cache reuses buffer objects that haven't been shared to other processes and frees buffer objects that have been in the cache unused for over one second. Read more
