    ASUS Official X79 Motherboards Support Thread

    I'm fighting a blinking cursor issue now. I installed win7 x64 ulti w/ GPT - blinking cursor after rebooting 2-3 times. With MBR I got a lot of good reboots (I thought it was working fine). Then I rebooted to install something or other and hit the blinking cursor issue again. I may have mucked...

    AMD 11.10 preview driver (Battlefield 3 beta driver)

    I got two 6970's in crossfire and get massive texture flickering in outside areas w/ these drivers. Enabling/disabling crossfire doesn't matter. Can anyone else confirm?

    5970->6970 xfire = third monitor wrong resolution

    This is it. Thank you. I knew I was just being stupid.

    5970->6970 xfire = third monitor wrong resolution

    Normally I wouldn't post so quickly, but this is driving me nuts. I have three Dell 3008WFPs I've been running in eyefinity for some time now. Today I got in some 6970s and set them up in crossfire. However, I can't get the third monitor to work at it's native resolution (2560x1600): I...

    3 30" Dell 3007WFP's - GPU Goodness

    I have a tri-30 set up as well. My recommendation would be to shy away from the stock 5970's and any card with less than 1.5GB of memory. It's not about pushing pixels at this nonsense resolution, but rather bits and textures. I am also planning on upgrading during the next green vs. red...

    Top 8 Linux Myths Debunked

    I guess arguments are moot now if that's how you really feel/think. There are people with a much more realistic view on the technical and marketable merits of Linux and OSS. You seem content is spouting your rhetoric towards a bunch of people who know better. Ignorant Non-Linux user spouting...

    Top 8 Linux Myths Debunked

    Other than the mention of "business" in the opening paragraph for sake of hotlink, the rest of the article is aimed towards end-users - not IT professionals. Then we're saying the same thing.No where did I mention that Windows drivers were superior. However, drivers in general are the...

    Top 8 Linux Myths Debunked

    A million times this. You can't make statements about Linux and then apply them to all distributions. It's essentially the plethora of software and standards variance that is killing it on the desktop. People like to talk it up as a whole, but then break it down to distributions when it...

    Top 8 Linux Myths Debunked

    I said I'm done. But on a more calm note you're overestimating the appeal of Linux in the server market. Node-based load balancing normally use a customized version Linux that will support their infrastructure. This is what Google does use. However, Google is atypical of your normal IT setup...

    Top 8 Linux Myths Debunked

    Umm, everyone? People who use your product are called consumers of said product. The article so obviously is pro-desktop Linux it's ridiculous. Your last two points are directed towards desktop use. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1449329...

    Top 8 Linux Myths Debunked

    #1 problem with Linux right here. Linux is great for many things, consumer desktops are currently not one of them. Saying it makes a great server means Zilch. Nada. Zero. Consumers don't care if there system stays up for months at a time, a good chunk of them turn it off when they're done...

    HP Holds Navy Network ‘Hostage’ for $3.3B

    To be clear, I'm not defending the quality of the service nor the vender lock-in methods employed by SLAs. I /am/ however attacking an obviously inflammatory article.

    HP Holds Navy Network ‘Hostage’ for $3.3B

    1.8 billion to handle services while transitioning. another 1.6 billion to buy the hardware and IP's granted under the SLA. Sounds reasonable in the context of SLAs - not HP bullying the Navy. Or do you keep the cable modem Comcast gave you when your cancel their contract as well? Author...

    HP Holds Navy Network ‘Hostage’ for $3.3B

    I am biased here, but you guys should really read the comments for the finer details. This article is an inflammatory troll designed to get eyeballs. Take an important note here: HP acquired the contract through the EDS merger. Additionally HP isn't holding anyone "hostage" - Maybe the...

    Linux Kernel Patch Issued

    True, but talking to some numbnuts on the internet you'd think that a company trying to make money is always morally wrong.
