Open Source More Expensive Says MS Report

msormune Re:Learning to use them? (465 comments)

To be fair, a lot of high profile open source GUI projects like KDE and Gnome also like to redo the looks just about every major version...

Review: Halo: Reach

msormune Re:Bungie in 1996 (191 comments)

Yes, they were stupid as they could have made a lot more money from selling the game on Mac, as opposed to the PC and Xbox platforms. Stupid I tell you.

Microsoft Claims 'We Love Open Source'

msormune Re:Riiight. (464 comments)

If Open Source went away Microsoft would be slapped with more monopoly law suits. They don't want that, so it's easier to keep it alive and well.

Are Consoles Holding Back PC Gaming?

msormune Re:Difference = Artificial OS Tying (518 comments)

"10 years ago" is still not exactly same as "4 years ago". Your statement would be more valid if you run Fallout 3 with something like Voodoo 3.

Are Consoles Holding Back PC Gaming?

msormune Re:On PC, Ubisoft = Suck (518 comments)

You can't own a modern game either way. It does not matter if you have a DVD in your hand, you DO NOT OWN THE GAME. You just own the license to play it. The DVD is just a delivery media just like Steam or whatever.

Ubisoft said "teh evil pirates DDOSed our servers", and they might even not lie about it. I remember 5 years ago when Steam came out and everyone was all sweaty about how much it sucked and the servers were unreachable. Fast forward into today, and everyone now says how much Steam is singlehandedly rescuing PC gaming. Double standards, anyone? It's still DRM.

Are Consoles Holding Back PC Gaming?

msormune Re:Difference = Artificial OS Tying (518 comments)

This bs has left a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths.

No it hasn't. People, and I mean the people who buy games and who gaming companies care about, just don't care. And in fact many people are still happily using DirectX9 and XP.

Further more, you have to buy a new gfx card anyway every 1-2 years EVEN IF you are still using DirectX9. Games just put more stuff on screen every year. That's how the industry makes it's money. Although, I'm still playing TF2, thanks you very much :)

And as for the DRM comment, please step away from your Slashdot reality distortion field. Ubisoft games have been best sellers; The majority of people just don't care, and play the games like AC2 happily. But I do agree with you about DRM in general, though. Ubisoft's scheme is pretty much pointless.

Are Consoles Holding Back PC Gaming?

msormune Re:Why? (518 comments)

If "no one really wants to use it", why are AMD (ATI) and nVidia implementing it then in their hardware? In the past those companies have been succesful, because they have made products people want.Yes it's true, we have to wait for the games that can use it, but so what? It's the same as with DX9 and DX10 before.

Besides you need a lot more than just OpenGL, because you need input and sound right?

Because a single PST file is harder to automatically backup on a daily basis that multiple files spanning in numerous mail directories?

You should also add another rule: The Ethernet / Internet connection must be directly to the net, no NAT or blocking router / firewall between.

TomTom Announces an Open Source GPS Technology

msormune Re:Excellent (177 comments)

You have been able to do that for a long time. Just not with open source software. Google Maps Mobile is pretty good at this already, and it's free.

Kernel 2.6.31 To Speed Up Linux Desktop

It really does not matter why it does not work properly. It just doesn't, period. In the mean time the "shoddy plugin" has worked in Windows since the beginning.
