    Need suggestions on OSX email client

    Spark looks cool. I'll test drive it myself, thank you! I got onto Canary when it was Free Download as well, they only started charging later. Let's see if Spark can remain free.

    Need suggestions on OSX email client

    I am sorry to ruffle feathers. Please accept my apologies for wasting your time. I won't go any further into disputing your suggestions. Mail was a hassle for me - Canary works. I am not affiliated with the developer and I was searching for Mail alternative for months.

    Need suggestions on OSX email client

    I understand it. Mail suffers from iTunes syndrome - Apple trying to re-invent a workflow/UX for the sake of differentiating themselves. At the same time it manages to clog the system drive with it's uncompressed, badly indexed mbox store. Poor programming + clumsy UI = bad software.

    No, the Linux Desktop Hasn’t Jumped in Popularity

    The model for Linux is different than the paradigms used for Windows/macOS. The onus is on the distro maintainers to offer correctly configured packages of your software for their distro. If the distro does not bundle LibreOffice then it is not for the user that seeks it and they should look...

    24/7 linux server underclock

    You should enable the 'powersave' or 'conservative' cpu frequency governor, either by compiling it into the kernel or loading the module, depending on your distro. Also the choice between Intel P-States driver and ACPI CPUfreq driver can affect power consumption...

    Former Compiz Developer: Free Software Desktop Might Enter A Dark Age [editorial]

    I'll miss it as it runs my phone... Shame that the whole convergence idea sunk in the incredible delusions of grandeur and stubbornness demonstrated by Canonical, which is one of the points of the article. Not worried about the dark ages just yet though.

    Moving to a small form factor, need audio advice.

    Isn't the diagram you posted relevant to Core 2? The distribution since Core iX looks more like this (and that's a lowly H55 platform...): By your reasoning, if the CPU sends data to USB, the Ethernet and SATA are blocked...I don't believe this, please show some test data.
