What the use the internet for depends on the person in my opinion more than the internet.

"zealot zealots"

Yo dawg, I heard you like zealots ..

I follow phoronix and forums closely some time now, so I know that work is being done on many ends, but quick results are probably not to be expected or I might be disappointed(pleasant surprises are always welcome though).

Regarding openness, my graphics working right is the first priority for me actually, I won't get into "holy wars" about it. But at least of the big companies(maybe there are smaller I don't know much about and are different), non is truly open, neither did I expec them to be, some parts are though in cases. It's kinda natural as things work now.
I just don't like reading people who claim that their pc works perfect(or better than mine) cause it can do stuff like boot in an open way. 0_o **
(^bad metaphor)
So I reply .. And it results in reading more of it ..(logic) X_x

I guess I already know what these forums here are like, but since I write anyway, what come is a bit expected sometimes.

Good luck with your work as always. Now please let us continue the trolling etc ..
