Linux "Now that the kernel mode-setting page-flipping for the ATI Radeon DRM kernel module has been merged into the Linux 2.6.38 kernel and the respective bits have been set in the xf86-video-ati DDX, we're in the process of running new open-source ATI graphics benchmarks under Linux. Our initial results (included in this article) show these latest improvements to cause some major performance boosts for the open-source ATI driver as it nears the level of performance of the proprietary Catalyst driver."

"I am stictly NOT a gamer but I do like to browse the Internet and I do not want my machine to be used as part of a botnet, or as a colection device for my Internet banking passwords.


Windows does not automatically become part of a botnet ... stop spreading FUD.
"

Where did I say it did?

Do you deny that botnets are composed of Windows machines?

As I said, I do not want my machine to become part of a botnet. This is not FUD, it is fact ... I really, truly do not want my machine to become part of a botnet.
