Phoronix: Nouveau Maxwell: Mesa 17.0 + Linux 4.10 vs. NVIDIA's Linux Driver

15 hours 49 min ago
Recently on Phoronix we've tested the re-clocking and boost support in Nouveau with the Linux 4.10 kernel and separately landing in Mesa 17.0 Git was the big Maxwell performance boost for Nouveau Gallium3D. That Gallium3D driver work improves the Maxwell open-source performance by "1.5x to 3.5x" via instruction pipelining improvements. With those latest improvements in the kernel and Mesa, how does Nouveau now compare to NVIDIA's binary Linux driver?

Reddit: I switched to Xfce a few days ago. Holy shit why did I not do it sooner.

Sunday 22nd of January 2017 05:32:35 AM

I am not a very tech savvy person. My experience in Linux comes from straight up diving into it while knowing nothing about it. I had been using Ubuntu until they switched to Unity which I personally really disliked. So I have been using Windows 10 for a while. Decided to jump ships to Linux again because my university assignments are slightly easier to work with on Unix system.

I am not even kidding switching to Xfce (Xubuntu) from Windows 10 feels like I have had a massive tumour removed from my body.
So clean. No shitty gimmicks like Cortana. No ads in the Start Menu. So much faster too. I wish this was the standard.

I feel bad for people who have used Windows 8/10 for an extended period of time that they don't know what not having cancer is like.

Reddit: Cant get myself to fully switch to Linux

Sunday 22nd of January 2017 04:26:31 AM

I really like Linux and I have tried many Distros in the past but like Ubuntu and Mint the best. I just cant get myself to switch entirely.

The only thing that bothers me is that I always seen to gave to "fix" something in terminal and it never seems to work like I want to.

Like the other day I couldnt get my iPhone to mount. So I Googled and found advice on what to do. After entering all the terminal commands it still wouldn't work where as on Windows I just had to install iTunes and Im done.

I dont know if it is just because Im used to Windows, since I grew up with it or that I am just too bif of a newbie with Linux.
