VirtualBox Development At a Standstill

buckfeta2014 Re:VMWare is worth the money (235 comments)

I was a long supporter of VMware, but the sad fact is, their virtualization platform sucks. Any type of IO (be it CPU, memory, disk, or network) is enough to bring VMware to a crawl. Virtualbox is the only VM software that I've used that performs anywhere close to 1:1.

Microsoft To Invest In Rogue Android Startup Cyanogen

buckfeta2014 Should Cyanogen actually say yes to MS money? (263 comments)

Microsoft has already got their hands bloody with Android, due to their FAT file system licensing, among other things. If anything Google/Android should be distancing itself from Microsoft, not letting them take over one aftermarket OS at a time.

Ubisoft Revokes Digital Keys For Games Purchased Via Unauthorised Retailers

buckfeta2014 Re:CC chargeback and if they ban you fully paid ga (462 comments)

Most CC operators won't let you issue that many chargebacks. If they do, they're likely to report you to the police for fraud.

Ubisoft Revokes Digital Keys For Games Purchased Via Unauthorised Retailers

buckfeta2014 Re:"Fraudulent" (462 comments)

Even if that was the case, it would prove that currency unity needs to be properly applied. Ubisoft wasn't the only company to recently change their prices related to current exchange rates. http://phandroid.com/2015/01/0...

NVIDIA Launches New Midrange Maxwell-Based GeForce GTX 960 Graphics Card

buckfeta2014 Too late. (114 comments)

I bought a 980 over the holidays. Runs 3x 1080p excellently. If I had the extra money to spend, I would have bought g-sync monitors, but they would cost more than my PC did, so screw it.

The Current State of Linux Video Editing

buckfeta2014 Blender is too confusing (223 comments)

If I couldn't use it for 3d animation, what makes you think I can use it for video editing... and since when can a 3d designer do video editing anyways...

19,000 French Websites Hit By DDoS, Defaced In Wake of Terror Attacks

buckfeta2014 OVH (206 comments)

One has to wonder how many of these 19,000 were hosted by OVH, and why they couldn't stop the traffic from reaching the servers in their network... (Except that we already know that hosting providers only care about making a buck.)

The 'Radio Network of Things' Can Cut Electric Bills (Video)

buckfeta2014 Re:no thanks (172 comments)

If by "work just fine" you mean wasting energy and costing you more, then you are right.

I like my water-wasting toilet, thanks. These no-flow toilets are absolute garbage. If I have to route wires to tell my utility company how many times I have to flush, that starts encroaching on "personal information".

Fighting Tech's Diversity Issues Without Burning Down the System

buckfeta2014 Re:Honest question. (479 comments)

Why do we need women in tech so bad? Seriously, why?

Because feminists have too much sand in their vaginas and would rather decimate every industry than accept true equality. If women don't want to work in an industry in sufficient numbers to create a 50/50 gender bias, then that's their choice. This isn't about "tech" being a vat of toxic masculinity like they would suggest.

AMD Catalyst Is the Broken Wheel For Linux Gaming

buckfeta2014 Re:ATI/AMD has had shitty drivers for 20 years (160 comments)

I always felt that ATI (pre-AMD)'s Windows drivers weren't that bad. After starting to use Linux in the early 00's, I had to switch to Nvidia, and I haven't looked back. Yeah, they're both binary drivers, but Nvidia always worked better for me in Linux, and in cases where I dual-booted, this really made the difference as to which card I bought.
