When GPU makers quote performance in FLOPS...
> GeForce GTX 680: 3 TFLOPS
> Radeon RX480: 5 TFLOPS
> Tesla P100: 10.6 TFLOPS
Are they all using the FP32 FMADD instruction? What code are they executing to get these numbers, just one instruction in a loop across all cores?
Once upon a time my curiousity about systemd and fast startups made me switch from Debian to Fedora 15. Today I've decided I've had enough and I'm going back to Debian. Is it a good decision?
What's wrong with Fedora:
- Too many restrictions. Non-upstreamed modules are forbidden (nvidia), any license that could harm RedHat is forbidden (ffmpeg, vlc). For this common stuff you have to RPMFusion which is probably one of the worst Linux repository and lacks all the goodness of standard Fedora build process (Koji builds). Heck, even after someone made a proof of concept to spoof gpg keys on their editable non-SSL wiki, they still didn't get SSL. And pls don't mention Copr. License restrictions applying to main repository apply here too.
- RPM build is relict from 90's that completely ignores that rest of the world hasswitched to Git for SCM. Every build is unpack archive and build from scratch. Sure, you can shortcircuit it but it's not straightforward and you'd have make and push your approach. On the other hand, rpm has some goodies like automatic parsing of dependencies and file dependencies.
- Lots of NIH and bullshit like firewalld, dnf, ... that is forced on you and it's hard to get rid of it as weak dependencies are not commonly used yet (PulseAudio, ... btw, is it even possible to have Fedora without systemd?).
Why does Spotify's shuffle suck dick so much? I read it was algorithmically designed to suck dick but it seems to be sucking too much dick and the user experience is horrible.
How do you fuck up a shuffle function?
I like the profile it builds off the songs I listen to, it lets me discover bands/artists I never would have found without expending effort.
And there's a lot of cool playlists for things like classical or trance that I may want to listen to sometimes but not enough to add them to a library.

What are you working on, /g/?
What is your favorite text editor /dpt/?
Alrighty /dpt/, I'm going to keep this poll going for about one or two more threads so I can have a large pool of votes and get a good idea on what /dpt/ likes to use.
I want to learn assembly coding and debugging. Are there any /g/ approved books where I can start.
I've done Java on my own for the past 5 years. Any idea as to what to learn next?

Is there a single 10/10 game on the horizon or is VR doomed to shovelware hell?
You know it's a sad state of affairs when a fucking job simulator is in all the top 3 lists.

>tfw you didn't fall for the Windows 10 meme
Haha you are the guy, who said that they will never update to Windows 7 and stay with Windows XP. And now you are saying the same about Windows 10. And you will say the same about Windows 11. Haha.
