Try this fix in FireFox.

No shit. It was a stupid comment to begin with.

don't think it was stupid.
- it was done by someone in a different language and the translation was crap
- it was dome by someone who did not care about marketing
- it was true as it is for every game and every developer, if a game does not sell well on platform X then platform X will get a lot less attention the next time.

and yes he could not help it that koch media/deep silver did what they did.

I remember back when I was outraged that 3dfx pulled this shit on Nvidia. Apparently we've come full circle. Nvidia, I hope you get cucked equally as hard.

Got a link? I don't remember this.

Thats because he is full of shit. It never happened. 3dfx ruled back in those days because the Glide API was built for their hardware, and much more efficient at the early 3d accelerated rendering than any OpenGL or DirectX general purpose API.

Also apart from the failed banshee, the voodoo chips were built and produced in house on their own cards by 3dfx themseleves. They didn't do 3rd party cards back in those days, which is another reason why the company was destined for eventual downfall.

Sorry but I had a Diamond Monster 3D which was the add-on passthrough card with the 3DFX chips on it, so they did outsource

I am glad he is like he is, its the only way to keep the kernel in proper shape. A huge part of the world is running on it (and no i am mot talking desktops), and if everybody would be able to put their crap code in it without someone like linus telling them straight out its crap we would end up in a lot of troubles over time.

Nice, according to police the OTHER vehicle was at fault for the collision (shocking), but Uber is suspending testing because of course this will be bad publicity for autonomous cars.

Even if the other driver was at fault, its also a question of determining if a human driver in the uber car would have seen it coming and reduced speed or intervened in any other way. (and yes I know there is a driver in the uber car but I can imagine he will not be as focused on driving as a real driver).

I don't understand how that "game mode" article got published.

There's no system specs, no "how much other shit is running concurrently" specs... no lots of stuff that would make it a compelling article. Instead it's just: "the new feature totally sucks /article".

I'm imagining that if you're running on an already tuned gaming PC, then you're probably not going to see any improvement. However, if you're playing on a bloated system with 40 extra non-system processes running in the background, then this *might* make some difference? Especially (mostly) for RAM-starved systems.

Again, all I care about is if it affects the DPC latency, but I'll just test that myself when it comes out, lest I be seduced by the technical mastery of this article.

Well look at it from another point of view. MS has been hyping this feature as games (some site say mostly windows store games) run faster.

Now if MS would have said it gives you faster games on an old pc or on a new pc with more then 40 services running then I agree with you, but they did not.

Its simply a before and after on the same PC test and it turned out disappointing after all the hype about it.

My Windows 10 already has a game mode, it is called Steam. It also has a secondary game modes they are Origin and Uplay...

What I read on other sites it seems this will only work for UWP games. So probably not your steam collection then

Source?

http://www.windowscentral.com/microsoft-reveals-game-mode-windows-10-xbox-one-improvements-and-more

Given the fact we know that Game Mode is a UWP feature, we previously speculated that it might be restricted to games in the Windows 10 Store.

Agreed. What I'd really like to do at this point is swtich to Linux for general OS work stuff and SteamOS for games and kick MS to the fucking curb entirely.

There is no real reason that your not being able to do that.

There are plenty of flavors of Linux and the different desktops, but if your switching from Windows then I would recommend KDE as that is the closest to windows compared to Gnome or Unity.

My personal favorite is opensuse with KDE, but choose as you please, from ubuntu with unity to fedora with gnome, its all free and all testable in a virutalbox on your windows install
