well, in "A world without walls", nobody is aloud to complain.
but anyway, linux would move a bit faster if everyone would just standardize things.
one package management system, one api for whatever... etc.
although i value that people like choices, just standardize some main things and leave open comfortable options.
everyone just pick vdpau already!!!!! we need to give positive reinforcement to nvidia's open source efforts! negative attention will just make nvidia less likely to contribute to open source
All rants and no results.
offtopic, 64bit flash again:
What is the reason distros don't offer 32bit browsers to run on 64bit kernels?
If VLC and MPlayer can play the 720p mp4 videos downloaded from youtube *smoothly* without any form of video acceleration (using the X11 renderer which is pure software even on the output level) why can't Flash? And this guy is supposed to be doing multimedia stuff since 1999? Give me a break.
Also, supporting true multilib seems to be a pain to distro devs. I think they assume that most 64-bit users can figure out how to run a 32-bit browser. Hell, I used to post a lot on ubuntuforums.org's 64-bit subforum (now closed) and saw lots of n00bs follow random blogs/how-to's and install a 32-bit version of Firefox without realizing it.
