Skip to comments.Intel Wants YOUR Linux Questions, Feedback
Posted on 01/13/2012 11:23:01 AM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing
Intel's Linux graphics team is seeking any questions or feedback that Phoronix readers have concerning their open-source Linux graphics driver stack.
Before anyone asks, this is only about the driver developed by the Intel OSTC team for hardware with true Intel integrated graphics -- Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, Ironlake, i915, i945, etc -- and not the notorious Poulsbo or now the Medfield situation. This is also only about graphics and not any other area of your Intel Linux desktop/notebook/netbook/tablet.
Go forth and post!

Intel...graphics...drivers??? LOL! They are the WORST when it comes to meeting standards. How about just getting that right before asking everyone else’s opinions.
Why are JAVA programs so much slower than their counterparts?
I'm not sure what it has to do with the issue at hand, but it is largely because it is an interpreted language. There is an extra layer of abstraction between the program and the bare metal because it runs in a jvm. So, you have hardware, you have an OS, then you have a JVM, then you have the java program. It's a trade off between portability and some speed. You can take the exact same java program an whether you are on linux, or windows, or OSX or whatever, and as long as you have written your code correctly, it will run.
Even if it’s written correctly, that whole working thing is in something of a relative sense. No, I’m totally not a jaded Minecraft player...
The horse is always in front of the cart.
So they have to put out code first, before you can comment on it.
More like they need to get the code they already put out and we have already commented on right before they try to put out even more code.
