The resulting WEC7 driver for Radeon GPUs is proprietary, but that's allowed per the MIT license that the ATI-AMD Linux driver code is provided under."
I wonder what the source of the article is, that the driver will be proprietary.
I wonder if taking the code written by the community, port it to windows embedded and add some proprietary sauce to it was also part of the original plan. So maybe AMD sees Linux community as a form of cheap labor?
Nope. This is a fairly recent project, conceived and started years after we got back into supporting open source graphics drivers, and the request was for a driver that could be released in source code form.
If schools would be a little bit more fun, if you actually learn something or maybe even learn something you're interested in the pupils might consider coming to school by choice.
I don't have any problems with Kubuntu or Fedora's KDE spin. I use xrandr to get the setup the way I want, but doing that under gnome locks the whole system up tight. I suppose it could be a hardware issue but then I would think that would also impact KDE as well.
The sad thing is, I actually find the Gnome 3 interface appealing in a lot of ways, even though it's pretty different from what I'm used to. It's really innovative and I think it could do interesting things with my workflow. But that I can't get it working right with an external monitor is really frustrating.
Its seems I've got a similar setup to yours and no such problems and wondering why. Changing display configuration with xrandr works fine for me too. But anyway, did you try using the gui from gnome? The preview there shows where the panel will be and if its on the wrong monitor you can just drag it to the right one.
I wonder how it works with a laptop whose lid is closed an external monitor is attached?
I read this one quite often and no it does not suspend if an external monitor is attached. 3.0 didn't either.
With both Fedora and Ubuntu, I find the most recent version still uses the laptop's monitor to show all the controls and panels. I can mirror the display but then my 24 in monitor is running in 1024 x 768. Trying to disable the built-in monitor just locks everything up.
I'd use an older "stable" version, but they don't support the built-in video card of the Intel i7 very well (software render only).
You know, you can just select which one is the primary display in the settings. Not sure what's wrong with your setup but all you describe works fine fore me. (using: Fedora 14, sandy bridge cpu/gpu 24" external monitor with desktop spawning both displays or built-in one deactivated; suspend on lid close - if no external monitor attached as well)
I'd much rather they focus on working with my hardware than working with my chat programs.
It's not like the intel driver developers are writing chat programs instead of doing there work or is it? If you like to complain, complain at the right topic, I don't see how any of your described problems is related to GNOME.
Better example: Disruptive app that allows me to be standing in a store and view items on the shelf through my phone with competing prices from nearby stores or online displayed in the air next to them.
Think about it. In theoretical economy transparency is a condition for the market to function. So this is how it is supposed be, right?
http://eprint.iacr.org/2006/136 describes the thing they're exploiting... Is this news?
If there is a difference between having a theoretical vulnerability based on a theoretical weakness and a working exploit then it is news.
Thanks for the link to the paper.

The bot you talked to online is not working on the same "level" as the one used on the Turring test. RTFA
Obligatory: you must be new here.
For the lazy rest of us: The online version seems to be a different one for performance reasons. Here the relevant quote from TFA:
While the online Cleverbot searches its banks 3 times before providing an answer, the test version searched 42 times, so it probably has a little different feel.
I don't know what they paid for the hearing aid, but it seems to me like something funny is going on.
I don't have a clue about hearing aid but I live in Europe and walk regularly past a shop selling them. There is a sign outside saying you don't have to pay anything as they are covered for by the basic healthcare insurance. Maybe you got to pay some fee to get the high-tech ones - again I've got no clue.
Is a data plan that expensive in the states?
I pay 10 € for my mobile contract (free calls to land line and same provider included) and additional 10 € for my data plan (250 mb, after that its slowed down till start of the next month). That is ~ 27 USD in total. Got no unlimited SMS though - costs ~ 0.12 USD per SMS
