And I thought Mesa used to make me sick.
This is my first post. So sorry :/. We are all adults here (some of us just turning 23). Being adults now: our geography, hardware, and what we could afford was chosen as we were born (Or at least in my context). But when (IF) we get rich then we can have we have whatever we desired and experiment on it till we become our own Soothsayers of hardware and software; I just hope we have confidence enough to put it into a nearly unbiased article like Phoronix. I have learned to love Linux through it's free software aspect from hand-me-down systems. I can get Octave for free but not MatLab (This makes Bode Plots fun). I have never had the opportunity to buy my own hardware. Though someday I will. I can only dream of what I want. So for the sake of unholy fucking CPUs I'd love to hear serious general discussion before people start pushing each other on hardware superiority or software. For most people like me I don't have a choice till I can shovel enough concrete to afford this "superior hardware" (Or get a big enough grant). I just want your honest opinion. Not your flame. That includes Bridgman, Quarian, and a lot of people who contribute to this flame. I don't even know what you guys are arguing about anymore. But it's counter-intuitive to my learning and everyone else who wants to learn the basic linux distro, systems, opengl, and hardware. No smugness or sharp retorts. Just experience. Sorry for the long post. I really do want your to hear about your experiences about linux and your hardware, but not your rage please. Thank you for listening.
