I've installed Ubuntu OEM on a few computers old before giving them away.
I have used Ubuntu Studio 12.04 and 12.10 for about a year. Given I only record and edit 2 channel audio, but I have had no issues with stability or latency. Running other apps and games have not had any issues with the low latency kernel either.
What happened to their internal deployment of Goobuntu?
The PS3 supposedly ran a modified FreeBSD as well. So between experience and licensing, it does make some sense.
Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii support USB keyboards. Not for gameplay, but for text input. I believe only PS3 has a few games that support keyboards in-game.
True of the SNES, but the N64 had some games that recommended and others required the expansion RAM pack.
It is still unclear if h.264 is used on discs, and I already said they need to pay if that's the case. They do include system updates on Microsoft published game discs for the offline systems.
My understanding is that the Xbox 360 uses Windows Media Audio 10 Professional for all system and game audio.
If the main issue is the H.264 video codec, why can't they just switch to Microsoft WMV/VC-1 or one of the many open source ones available? Sounds like a simple software system update to me if its just the video apps doing it. If H.264 is used on game discs then MS needs to payup.
I don't see the issue either. RHEL does not support a 14 year old product either.
Cake, and grief counseling, will be available at the conclusion of the test.
"- No customizability. For example, I can't figure out how to have the clock on the taskbar also list today's date."
In XP Display Properties, change to Windows XP style. Resize taskbar to double height and Time, Day, and Date are shown.
It's fair considering Apple and Microsoft take 30% of the app cost and Google takes zero.
One would home this is just the entertainment dashboard and not the system firmware.
In the spirit of can it run linux, how long before they upgrade Sync to Windows 8?!
but how many years until HL2:E3?
