Guess I'll have to see if this builds on IRIX when I get home...just to see.
Because I much prefer Qt to GTK?
What, no Kings Quest? I remember playing them in DOS (up to KQ VI)
Also, The Elder Scrolls: Arena and The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall....lost lots of time there.
If the games used SVGA lib, he's out of luck on a modern Linux setup. That broke with the introduction of KMS to my understanding.
Actually the MD state government got busted for using the transportation fund for a lot of non-transportation related things not that long ago....
My home situation makes moving impossible right now, for reasons not public. I happen to love my current position, and not too many companies could offer me something more fun (or profitable, having 7 years experience but no degree). Also, the nearest areas to where I live are Towson and Baltimore, which I am strongly opposed to working at either area. I'd rather drive versus sit still in traffic. So my choices are limited for the time being. (Also, sys admins don't get to telecommute often at this company, and my last employer was strongly against it)
The states seem to do it just fine, so what makes you think the feds won't pull it off.
Not that I am one bit in favor of this, gas costs me enough as it is. Working a long distance from home uses as lot of fuel.
As someone who spends a large portion of their monthly budget on gas, I am very apposed to this. I also am opposed to the diverting of the transportation fund for other things that has been quite common place (or at least in my state).
And I think SGI might have prior art (I'd have to read Apple's patent to be sure).
I decline (as does the company I work for, and several others I deal with) to support Windows XP at this point, with the exception of moving users off of it (well, my employer doesn't deal with XP at all, if you call support the response for XP is we don't support that, use a supported system, Friend's employer just deals with it for migrations, and I still do that on the side sometimes).
I'd rather have hardware that works well. Closed source drivers don't bother me.
Captain Crunch? Captain Morgan?
AIX and HP-UX still receive patches from IBM and HP, respectively. SGI only stopped releasing patches from IRIX in January this year (2014), for an OS that was initially released in 1998 (IRIX 6.5).
