Yep. It’s not the drivers. Apple voodoo’ed the angelic Intel GPU (it’s the CPU, but whatever) and Linux chokes on it. Wonder what they would say when it WOULD be fixed down the road. “Suddenly Apple swooped from the heavens and fiddled with the firmware and it works now.”
It can’t be that Linux is diseased whore (works less than 30% of the time) on everything EFI. It still doesn’t work on EFI boards from 2006.

P.S. Also let’s bring up Thunderbolt. Which is irrelevant to the issue at hand, which is that ...

Sigh.

Stu: Whose idea was it to switch computers over to Linux? What were the reasons for doing so?

Malcolm: We have used Linux as the OS for our email server, VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) and website for a while since I had used it before at my previous position in the financial industry.

Good idea! Let’s transfer our entire infrastructure to Linux as an email server (it’s famously good at that) and as a web server (actually, it’s perfectly decent at that) and as a VLE (??? Who knows?).

Because, if your previous position was in the ...

Those big guys always try to steal someone else’s thunder.

Following intrusion into corporate network earlier this year comes the hack

I don’t really want (or need) to say anything else

It appears that I do have something to say. Details posted on HNews. Java involved – nothing special. One of the Apache teams are incompetent about security – no surprises either, but this ...

Long time, no post. But I return with hilarious news: ubuntuforums has had almost every user account credential stolen. Inherently secure, baby!

Ed Bott’s is angry that Microsoft rightfully cancelled the TechNet aka Freetard Appeasement Service. He quotes a bunch of freetards who want free shit. The argument is because a bunch o’ freetards want Microsoft to give them free shit, the company should give them free shit. Whine enough and Microsoft is suppose to give anything you want? What kind of bullshit is that?

When will the freetards learn that writing software costs money? That’s why Loonix is shit.

The TechNet service was a hotbed for freetards to acquire Microsoft software at low prices that are unfair to Microsoft ...

Well making programs lean and mean is a good thing, right, right? Well, not exactly. Simply, consuming less memory is not in itself a sensible goal. After all Windows assigns memory more liberally when you have it more of it. And I’m not going to go into the voodoo that mobile OSes do to freeze applications and compress memory at the cost of CPU cycles and performance.
I created this FUD because Windows is renowned for being guilty of memory gluttony by people who never finished a computer science course. So less memory consumption is automatically hailed as the ...

Deposited for comments, like the little turd it is.

No Linux desktop has a real virus problem.

Notice how there is little discussion about how Loonix is a broken POS with a 1960s design? How to this day, it’s virtually impossible to get video working on Loonix without 5fps and constant flicker? How Loonix doesn’t actually save anything to your filesystem when it says it does? How wifi and sound flat out don’t work, at all?

It shouldn’t be all that suprising though. Freetardpedia’s agenda is quite visible everytime you scroll down and see the communist license they release it under, and the insidious operating system and software they run with. Nothing ...

I may have to stop reading Dietrich T. Schmitz.

Who you lookin' at?

It may very well be that Google have designs on packaging up ChromeOS for general retail sale.

What, like Torvald’s favourite Chromebook Pixel? A snip at $1,299, just as long as you’re a dilettante millionaire. Unfortunately not available for general retail sale … er …

When you come right down to it, there may be millions of users now who understand the perceived risks of using legacy (x86) Windows to do anything on the Internet.

Gotta love that “perceived.” Both an accurate representation of the truth, and yet a fucking ...

An oldie but goldie. Back in May 2008, SJVN (a small-town palooka who feeds off click bait) was slavering over the certainty that Steve Ballmer would be fired.

And he had five good reasons to salivate.

1. Technically, Vista was crap. You don’t have to believe people like me who think Vista, a year and a service patch since its release, is still an over-priced joke pretending to be an operating system.

As a matter of fact, you’d pretty much have to be SJVN to believe that. In 2008 it was obvious that Vista was a bridge (indeed ...
