BSD: LLVM and OpenBSD on the Desktop

  • LLVM Is Playing A Big Role With Vulkan/SPIR-V Compilers
    The usage of LLVM as part of the graphics driver stack continues to be picked up now especially in the Vulkan/SPIR-V world. With the new NVIDIA 396 driver series there is their new "NVVM" compiler stack for SPIR-V, the IR used by Vulkan and OpenCL and now can be consumed by OpenGL 4.6 too.
  • OpenBSD on my fanless desktop computer
     

    I’ve been using OpenBSD on servers for years as a web developer, but never had a chance to dive in to system administration before. If you appreciate the simplicity of OpenBSD and you have to give it a try on your desktop.

  • It’s time to give Firefox a fresh chance
     

    After spending some quality time comparing the actual experience of using Chrome, Safari, and Firefox across a variety of websites, I’m confident in saying browser benchmarks are profoundly uninformative. The truth is that performance differences are not substantial enough to be noticed. If anything, you’re most likely to clash with “only works in Chrome” incompatibilities, but that’s kind of the whole reason for me to avoid Chrome: someone has to keep using the alternatives so as to give them a reason to exist.
