What do you hate about your computer?

In an article outlining some of the headaches with modern computing, Forbes asks in a poll what do you hate most about your computer? Well, I didn't answer because it'd be very different answers depending on whether we're talking about the one at work or at home. The biggest problem with the one at work is how slow it is. They are Dell Optisomethingorothers running WindowsXP and are slow as molasses.

hmmm

The most frustrating part for me in Linux is finding out something that worked before now doesnt work after updating some code. Right now I am battling printer, network printer and usb issues with PCLinuxOS beta and Im sure it is due to udev and hotplug updates. The thing is if you back down to some previous code then it breaks sounds and kmix. fun fun fun. I miss devfsd, atleast it worked and we didnt have these kinds of problems.

I hear ya.

I hear ya. I feel the same way about udev! I had the same problem when I did my newest install. my udev updated yesterday too. I bet it'll be broke when I reboot. Tongue

  • Interview with Baukje Jagersma
    How and when did you get to try digital painting for the first time? Probably when I first discovered Deviantart. I was already familiar with GIMP, which I used to create photo-manipulations with. But seeing all the amazingly talented artists on there made me want to try out digital painting for myself.
  • Builder happenings for January
    I’ve been very busy with Builder since returning from the holidays. As mentioned previously, we’ve moved to gitlab. I’m very happy about it. I can see how this is going to improve the engagement and communication between our existing community and help us keep new contributors. I made two releases of Builder so far this month. That included both a new stable build (which flatpak users are already using) and a new snapshot for those on developer operating systems like Fedora Rawhide.

  • AMDVLK Official Open-Source Radeon Vulkan Driver Updated
    It's been one month now since AMD open-sourced their official Vulkan driver code and the associated XGL code-base. There has been about weekly code drops of new AMDVLK/XGL code over the past month while the separate, community-driven Mesa-based RADV Vulkan driver continues being developed as well. Marking one month since the open-sourcing of this Radeon Vulkan driver that is shared with the Windows code-base is a new code drop. Today's code drop adds VK_AMD_buffer_marker and VK_EXT_debug_report support. There are also a number of internal Vulkan driver behavior changes and fixes to some conformance test suite bugs.
  • Deep Color Support For Radeon X.Org Driver Being Tackled
    Open-source contributor Mario Kleiner has continued his work on deep color support for the Radeon Linux driver.
  • [ANNOUNCE] libinput 1.9.901
    The first RC for libinput 1.10 is now available.
  • Libinput 1.10 Is On The Way To Remove Touchpad Hysteresis
    eter Hutterer of Red Hat has announced the first release candidate of libinput 1.10 today, which isn't a big feature release but rather incorporates a few new features with many bug fixes for this input handling library used by X.Org and Wayland systems. Peter notes the most notable change for libinput 1.10 is the removal of the touchpad hysteresis code. This code was previously used to prevent pointer wobbles while now the code has been worked to analyze the event sequence for pointer wobbles and if none exist the hysteresis won't be applied. This should lead to a more reactive pointer. Libinput 1.10 is also working on new button debouncing fixes, improvements for newer Wacom tablets, and a variety of fixes.
  • DXVK Is Making Significant Progress In Implementing Direct3D 11 Over Vulkan
