No just beamed her across the pond
Presumably GettinSadda's point is that if 1080p is available on a cheap(ish) 6.1" handset then a 15" laptop should be able to do proportionally better. e.g. 2560x1660 should be nice.
Looks strangely familiar to me...
Re: The name
My immediate thought was USB3.1 too... but you can't copyright/trademark a version number... and then charge companies an extra fee just to print it. UltraSuperMegaUSBPlusPlusHD™ it is then.
Re: Ah, but here's the benefit
>I suspect that the main one that MS roll out frequently are the FAT patents, some of which will expire shortly, but I believe we've never found out the full set.
I suspect you're absolutely right... but I doubt Samsung could give a crap about Microsoft Inc.'s smelly old FAT any more... Samsung has just landed F2FS in the kernel... I wonder what that could be useful for! ;o)
Eat that M$!
>Sure, if Mauro was in any way Linus' employee. Which he isn't. He can't take him aside and give him a talking to, or sack him.
Erm... of course he could. Who do you think manages the Kernel project and thus controls the coding/contributors/contributions/maintainers?
It sounds to me like this problem has been going on for some time and Torvalds might be approaching doing exactly that!..
>How long have you been a maintainer? And you *still* haven't learnt the first rule of kernel maintenance?
>And you've shown yourself to not be competent in this issue, so I'll apply it directly and immediately myself.
>The fact that you then try to make *excuses* for breaking user space, and blaming some external program that *used* to work, is just shameful. It's not how we work.
Sounds to me like Mauro might be auditioning for a job at Microsoft. ;-)
...for failing to properly deploy your pedant icon.
