Comment Re:You still use Latex?? (Score 1) 556

Latex was a good if awkward choice when decent word processors and DTP apps couldn't handle scientific notation, but really, those days are long gone.

As if. (La)TeX is still the best choice by a considerable distance, and "those days" are certainly not "long gone".

Comment Re:GPU switching (Score 1) 268

The kernel is only responsible for initializing, suspending, resuming and lately modesetting of the hardware and it seems that is possible now.

Plus managing GPU memory allocation. But yes, this is probably something to be added to XRandR, or some other protocol extension. (What would happen to normal, non-X virtual consoles, though? This might require some more stuff in the kernel.)
