On a scale of 1-10, how hard does this video get you?

What products are you guys most excited about?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=w-tFdreZB94

http://www.microsoft.com/enterprise/productivityvision/default.aspx#fbid=adoYg2PknT0

Apparently these are real products that will be released in 5~10 years. Any thoughts?

I can't decide whether I should try to return my GTX 970 or not.
On one hand I haven't yet run into any problems with it, on the other it has now been proven beyond doubt that it is gimped and has issues in memory intensive situations.

I've originally planned to keep it roughly till the end of next year.
Should I try to get a refund and buy a 290x or should I let it slide?

What experiences do other owners have here?

Not sure if appropriate thread but, my old 660ti is dying.
I was looking at 970 before but then shitstorm happened. Also it's a bit on the pricy side compared to the 290 options.

Is the 290 a good card still? Is the 290x worth the extra? Should I keep up with this until 300 series are out?
>>
>>46830058
Yeah, that's kind of shitty of them, didn't know that they tried to do that though, then again my current GPU is an R9 290 I got for $220.

Many of the AAA titles are from porters such as Feral and Aspyr who uses DirectX to OpenGL translation layers and then write their own OpenGL implementations. If developers will still use DirectX, then we'll likely not see Vulkan versions on OSX and Linux, but still OpenGL ones.
As much as I would like to see Vulkan being used, I still think it's unlikely

My armchair analysis says vidya devs can't get off directX because of a combination of baby duck syndrome and no demand for anything other than directX because customers being to retarded to into Linux (also most likely because of baby duck syndrome)

I hope Valves intention is to change that and that people will follow

Well shit, I read wrong, but I don't think nvidia ever pretended to be open source friendly. At least AMD is releasing a kernel driver for their cards, and supports the Mesa project massively.
>>
>>46829845
>yea but opengl doesn't have a history of being widely supported by the bigger (non horrible indie games for the most part) games...


Because it's worse than Dx, and with every new release they just stacked more shit on the growing pile. Vulcan starts from scratch, so it might actually be as good, if not better, than Dx. Don't know if that would be enough for the large gaymen studios to make the transition to it though, linux/OS X games market is almost non existant...
>>
>>46829990
from what i remember, opengl kept up with dx for a long time, and if it ever was lacking was brought up to speed within 3-4 months, it just never got used after microsoft attacked the hell out if it many years ago.

any game i had with opengl support ran SO much better on opengl than dx, crashed less, and looked better overall, granted that kind of flipped itself in more recent years but i put that on indie teams not being able to get shit to work good apposed to the api innate problems.
>>
>>46829990
oh and on the linux and osx, its not about them, its about being able to have the best graphics on older oses...

there is no reason why lets say windows xp should not be able to handle dx 10 or 11, outside of microsoft just wont put it on xp...

and as we see with win 7 to win 8, issues crop up with games, software, and much of which is either never going to be fixed or up to users to find the work arounds... as it stands now, you should be gaming on windows 7.

will i upgrade to 10... if its free i may dual boot... but there isnt a chance in hell of me moving off 7 for 10 knowing its going to have major issues, dx 12 isnt appealing enough for me to do it... and if enough gamers decide "you know what? win 7 works for me and its a hassle to migrate" than there wont be dx12 games made, much like how next to no dx10 only games exist.

Are you torrenting the way you're supposed to, /g/?

Have you noticed that you never want to use public trackers ever again after using private ones?

Public plebs, stay out of this thread. You wouldn't last a single day on a private tracker anyway.

We are stuck with our stack for the time being, so are there any distros that integrate fresh ideas?

I've been a Linux ∪ GNU user for quite a few years now and not much has changed (since Unix actually, but that's another topic).

Is there anything worth venturing outside of Debian after this many years?

Did anyone perhaps try NixOS?
Or perhaps GoboLinux?
ANYTHING interesting?

NixOS is cool and enough of a paradigm shift for me to overlook the inclusion of systemd, it's real fun to fuck around with and perfect a configuration. There's not much like it.

I don't understand, any noteworthy OS changes are going to be to the kernel which is constantly evolving and changing. You use want you want in the userland for the most part, systemd replacing initscripts was a major change in that space as of recent.

kvm added to kernel
blablablablabla

gobolinux just adds millions of useless symlinks

you have no idea what you are talking about, right ?
