Phoronix - Mon, 2017-02-13 18:01
It's been a while since last testing Windows 10 vs. Linux on different, newer Linux game ports with a variety of GPUs, but that changed this week. As mentioned this weekend, I've been working on a large, fresh Windows vs. Linux gaming performance comparison. The results available today are for NVIDIA with testing a GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1080 on Windows 10 Pro x64 and Ubuntu 16.10 x86_64 with the latest drivers and using a variety of newer Direct3D 11/12 / OpenGL / Vulkan games.

How do you donate to the GNU/Linux/FOSS ecosystem?

Reddit - Mon, 2017-02-13 17:08

I was just wondering how everyone here contributes to the GNU/Linux/FOSS ecosystem through donations, and in what way. I have limited funds, but I think I'm able to contribute a little bit this year via donations and am just looking for the best bang for my buck. :) I'll probably contribute to projects that are important to me, but in addition to that I wanted to get everyone else's thoughts. I'd appreciate some different ideas, some favorite projects.

Projects that are corporately sponsored, coders who are gainfully employed, or projects that have sufficient funds via regular crowdfunding campaigns are not as high of priority for me.

Are there "foundation" projects on which the rest of GNU/Linux is built where donating would make a big difference? Any important coders who don't get recognition, donations, or are having a hard time? Any favorite project of yours that could turn into something great with some recognition and monetary help? What's your Top 5?

Just wondering how everyone here donates to help out the people who make our lives better!

Why is it that Android phones can function fine for months but our modems need to be reset regularly?

Reddit - Mon, 2017-02-13 14:50

This is what I mean by resetting the modem. Apparently, its the software at fault. From what I know, modems use Linux as their OS. Android is also Linux. But it can go months without needing a reset.
