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."

You inferred it. You infer a lot of things on here and then say "I never actually said that", when everyone knews what you meant.

It is really pathectic tbh.

Also Linux isn't immune ... after doing a quick google I found these in the first page.

Considering I have actually had to fix some Linux Boxes (when working as a network admin) that were sending out spam emails because that had been compromised ... nothing is immune.

"[q]Windows does not automatically become part of a botnet ... stop spreading FUD. "
" [/q]

"Where did I say it did?
"

You inferred it


He didn't say "Windows automatically becomes part of a botnet". And using a logic process, rules of inference and so on... nobody can "infer" that statement, of course.

It is really pathectic tbh.

No comments :-)

"to hint; imply; suggest."

It seemed quite obvious to me that it was suggested.
