    Leaked Nehalem Performance Numbers Posted

    ahhh yes, more fine journalism from George, anything for Intel. The numbers look great but its a 6 core vs 4 core. That being said I look forward to what Nehalem can do, and left wondering how much money does he get for sucking so much Intel ...... you fill in the blank.

    Linux Advice Wanted

    Yeah, I know how gentoo works, and how portage works, you make a good point packages are compiled against specific libs, or even the kernel. That being said it saves the user time, and simplifies the process, just because I can does not mean I want to, using portage, and freebsds ports...

    DirectX10 on XP

    Can I also ask how you unlocked a 7800 to DX10 (unless your sig is out of date), and can I ask what DX10 games you played on Vistas RTM date, because I would like to know how and where you got your magic powers. I could of sworn the first cards to sport dx10 capabilities were the 8800 cards and...

    Linux Advice Wanted

    1. debian and ubuntu both use debs, and for the most part both exchange packages. Also for the most part .debs, can be used across different debian based distros. That being said, I don't under what in ubuntu would prevent the user from ./configure, make and sudo make install. this I will...

    Linux Advice Wanted

    Sorry but last I checked debian, ubuntu, fedora and gentoo, all have pre-compiled packages, and try to have as many packages as possible to limit user compiles or simplify compiles. So than my question is how does using Ubuntu make you less familiar with the mechanics of *nix or linux operating...

    Linux Advice Wanted

    While automatix is great for n00bies, I would not recommend it, it can be a pain to upgrade and can break stuff. Also folks before you suggest envy give people the heads up when the kernel is upgraded the video card drivers need to be re-installed via envy.

    Skulltrail and X48 . . .w00t

    I am very interested in skulltrail, these will use the xenon chips right, and I am am not sure if this has been mentioned, but how is the overclocking on the boards? Wow, more than a 1KW PSU and 1000$ for the board, I could of sworn that a lot of people ragged on AMDs 4x4 for the 500$+...

    Xorg.conf and 7950GX2?

    to my understanding, if you have the right drivers (a version that supports that card) that setting up the 7950s is the same as setting up a single video card. Make sure you are using a driver that supports the 7950 card. I would recommend you use the Nvidia-glx-new package, as its newer then...

    The Final Thread: The best free Anti-Virus?

    nod32 is great, avg is great for being free. I have also had good experiences with panda, and kaspersky, but only avg has the free option, tried avast not my thing, I have not given clamav a shot. Those are only the windows setups, my *nix setups I dont bother with.

    Xorg.conf and 7950GX2?

    it is easy, if you go from nvidia to nvidia and use the 'nvidia' drivers then you can literally swap the card with no are using the opensource nv driver, which does not support the newer cards. make sure you have the nvidia drivers installed, sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-new, or...

    I'm giving up on Ubuntu now ...

    >___________________< even when I use windows I wont use it, I find it too bloaty, and using foobar2000 and VLC are a better combination and uses far less resources. Although amarok2000 and VLC are the best combination IMHO.

    I'm giving up on Ubuntu now ...

    you do know that AMD has opened up the specs on thier cards, something nvidia hasn't done. That being said yes the older ATI drivers sucked donkey balls, but the new open drivers still in testing should mean better drivers. So don't throw that box away yet.

    AMD Spider Videos

    ok, I wanna say I have a soft spot for AMD, I think this demo is a little useless, one, that 3GHz clock is not stable, he moved some sliders and wow, 3 GHz. Second, why increase the PCI-E slot, I was under the impression, that its pointless......???

    Why hatred of Vista?

    *sigh* this isn't a linux vs vista thread, all I said was vista has to offer new features and functionality, in my case vista besides direct x 10 is lagging behind my osx and linux machines. While some companies/people are locked, some others are not, if Windows does not offer new features...

    Open office can open all previous office documents with the exception of OfficeOpenXML formats.
