Michael: Then you probably noticed that eglSwapInterval(0) support landed this week in Mesa git for Wayland. It'll enable you to have > 60 fps Wayland applications.GNOME Shell Wayland benchmarks from Fedora 20.
VirtualBox vs. KVM Linux virtualization benchmarks, and bsd comparations against linux, are very interesting, but what I really want to see is SteamOS vs Ubuntu/Manjaro/etc to see how good it is
Somehow, this has gone overlooked on phoronix:
The real FFmpeg might be finally returning to Debian!
As requested here by me, could you please run CPU governor tests (ondemand, performance) with the 3.12 & 3.13 kernel to confirm that the issues are fixed and there are no more performance differences? This is really important, at least for all the gamers out there. I would like to see some gaming benchmarks with min/avg/max fps included
Seriously Michael, this post and another you made has me concerned that you are on the road to burnout. It is actually a good thing to take a holiday and frankly a day off every week or so. You don't want to loose touch with the rest of the world.
I only bring this up out of concern for you and your web site which I frequent on and off regularly. Really it wouldn't hurt me one bit if one day a week nothing was posted or you posted nothing to take a New Years holiday in the Caribbean, Las Vegas or a cabin in the woods. In the end your site will be better because of some time off.
