OpenGL Becoming a Requirement For the Linux Desktop

dennism This is really easy to solve... (229 comments)

$20 can get a decent PCI-e video card that can be used for accelerating desktop compositing. Resourceful people can probably even find suitable cards for free if they look around.

We are way beyond the point where a 3D accelerated video card is a luxury item in a PC.

Ah, but where does it end?

"Would you like ultra-wide spectrum super-HD eyes with 60x optical zoom, Internet-connected HUD and complimentary laser cannons, just like everyone else has?"

Yes. Yes I do.

Why AnywhereCD Failed

dennism Re:Thanks for all the feedback (184 comments)

I would have to install a Flash player. No joke. Fair or not, I don't see the logic in needing Flash to download a player. That may not be an AnywhereCD-caused problem. But any pothole on the road to paying for music detours me to gnutella

At this point in time, having a Flash plugin installed is not something considered unreasonable. Refusing to install Flash, IMO, is like the people who refused to use a graphical browser a few years ago.
