Comment Re:If Xorg would fix... (Score 1) 192

I've been playing Steam games quite happily withith an nVidia card, using the proprietary driver. I haven't experienced this bug. It's definitely accelerated. (GF GT 430, Linux Mint).

I even recently ordered me a GTS 750 card - expecting to get rid of occasional slowdowns (eg. when a huge horde of zombies attack) and allowing me to play any linux game on the market.

Comment Re:Gaming on linux (Score 1) 136

The number of commercial games that run natively on linux may still suck, but generally Linux is an OK gaming OS, if you have good driver for your graphics. Proprietary nVidia drivers are quite good, and I'm glad if AMD drivers will be good too. In last few years Radeon proprietary radeon drivers have had trouble installing, and had some problems even if you do. So my advice has been buy nVidia if you want to game on Linux and install the proprietary drivers. If you want all open source, get a radeon but don't expect it to run games smoothly. Let's see what I have for Linux on steam: Half Life 2, Portal, Star Conflict, Dead- Island. They all run well on my machine AMD FX.6300, nVidia GT 430. See if I must upgrade my graphics card for Bioshock Infinite, that should get Linux binaries soon (which I already bought on christmast sale for 7€).

Why shouldn't ISP's appeal to EU Court of Justice or European Court of Human Rights?
CJEU stated that the directive "interferes in a particularly serious manner with the fundamental rights to respect for private life and to the protection of personal data".
One could understand that any similar local laws or practices should be void/illegal in the EU, and in violation of European Convention on Human Rights.

United States Begins Flying Stealth Bombers Over South Korea 567

skade88 writes "The New York Times is reporting that the United States has started flying B-2 stealth bomber runs over South Korea as a show of force to North Korea. The bombers flew 6,500 miles to bomb a South Korean island with mock explosives. Earlier this month the U.S. Military ran mock B-52 bombing runs over the same South Korean island. The U.S. military says it shows that it can execute precision bombing runs at will with little notice needed. The U.S. also reaffirmed their commitment to protecting its allies in the region. The North Koreans have been making threats to turn South Korea into a sea of fire. North Korea has also made threats claiming they will nuke the United States' mainland."
