Help me help Linux, tell me about Linux problems
Hello, I am a student and I have to pick a project to do for my Bachelor of Science.
I search for problems that Linux has and can be solved programmatically(no community stuff and this kind of things).
No CPU Schedulers... Linux has to much of that.
Proprietary software? Proprietary features? Features Windows has and Linux doesn't?
Any ideas? May be features that don't exist yet but theoretically are possible to implement?
Graphics card support for dual cards (specially ati)
Linux lacks graphics support as in windows. Open source drive still fails to load a lot of applications that requires GPU. On the other hand catalyst driver with a tough installation process fails to load any application via wine. So I am stuck on waiting for applications to be natively ported to Linux or dual boot windows for those applications. In older hardware Desktops often freezes (due to compiz). I know windows have moved from xp to 7 and those applications are still slow on windows, but they don't freeze as they do on Linux. I have this problem while running java development environment. I am still on open-jdk-6. While I use maven and eclipse I get almost always freeze when I compile the application. Java's memory keeps on increasing whole day. So I have to shutdown eclipse before I go for launch. I think Desktops should have options to completely turn off compiz (without loggin in to different desktop environment). I even tried to use mint's new desktop environment and used the option to turn of effect, but the solution is still not there. I thought I could load lighter Desktop Environments, but what's the point of using default configuration.
