Linus: Praying for Hammer to Win

Wojtek Re:x86, why can't you just die? (487 comments)

Yes, we complained about backwards compatibility. Then intel came out and did a fucking horrible implemtnation of hp's work (ia53 simply being parisc 3.0). That said, amd has an exceptionally well implemented core and a fairly sane extension of x86. and they /have/ dropped a lot of cruft. Go learn about x86-64.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
