Re: Resolution

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.

USB 3.0 speed to DOUBLE in 2013

Facepalm

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$!

'SHUT THE F**K UP!' The moment Linus Torvalds ruined a dev's year

Re: Err...

>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. ;-)
