Now it’s Open Document Format’s turn for the FUDmeisters.

Okay, lets get one thing straight…

Repeat after me :

“The Open Document Foundation has nothing to do with the Open Document Format”
“The Open Document Foundation has nothing to do with the Open Document Format”
“The Open Document Foundation has nothing to do with the Open Document Format”

Really, they should change their name. For one thing, it’s confusing and diluting the acronym for the Open Document Format. Another thing is, they, (The Open Document Foundation - see what I mean?) appear to be very, very confused about what they are doing; or if they’re not confused about what they’re doing, then they’re being very successful at confusing everyone else.

The latest example of which is an article by Peter Galli, of eweek, entitled “Document Format Dispute Spills into the Open“.

Linux 5.2 + Mesa 19.2 Performance With Polaris/Vega/Vega20 vs. NVIDIA On Ubuntu 19.04

With last week having delivered fresh benchmarks of the mid-range NVIDIA/AMD graphics cards using the very latest drivers, particularly the in-development Linux 5.2 and Mesa 19.2 components with the Radeon graphics cards tested, here is a similar comparison when moving up the spectrum and focusing on the higher-end graphics cards. Here's a look at how the RX 590, RX Vega 56, RX Vega 64, and Radeon VII are performing with the newest open-source AMD driver code compared to the NVIDIA Turing line-up backed by their latest binary driver. While next month will be Radeon RX 5700 series Linux benchmarking using the newest code (DRM-Next / Linux 5.3), this article is offering a fresh look at how the Linux 5.2 kernel performance is shaping up on the higher-end graphics cards as complementary to last week's numbers. The four Radeon cards tested were using the Linux 5.2 Git kernel and Mesa 19.2-devel using the Oibaf PPA. The NVIDIA Pascal and Turing cards benchmarked were using their latest driver available, version 430.26. Read more
