RadeonSI OpenGL Performance Has Evolved A Lot Since Early 2015

Phoronix - Fri, 2016-08-26 17:42
Yesterday I posted some benchmarks showing how the AMDGPU / R9 Fury performance has jumped up in the past few months just since the April release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. For those wondering how the open-source AMD OpenGL performance has evolved over the longer term, I took a Radeon R9 270X graphics card and re-did tests going back to Ubuntu 15.04 for looking at the RadeonSI Gallium3D performance for the past year and a half.

running Office on Linux

Reddit - Fri, 2016-08-26 17:30

Hey all, I'd like to hear any experiences and suggestions on running microsoft office on Linux. I've read a lot of useful links on Wine, CrossOver, and virtual machines/emulators but what I need now is to hear personal experiences and point of views. I'm a student and it's extremely important to run to run Office 2010 for school and for work. Thanks!

help deploying small ISO to lots of PCs

Reddit - Fri, 2016-08-26 17:12

Keep in mind i know very, VERY little about linux. Try to keep answers as ELI5 as possible.

Okay so i've created a porteus kiosk ISO using the installation wizard and now i need to deploy it to a fleet of tiny netbooks that have been collecting dust for the last few years. The way I'm currently installing the ISO is by booting to the GParted OS via Hirens, then using the DD command to write the iso to the HDD.

My question is: how can i make this process quicker and possibly less involved so my lower level tech can help me with the process? I'm thinking there might be a live OS out there that would boot faster than Gparted. I also tried to script the command so my tech could just double click a file but there is no output so i can't tell if it runs or not. Lastly would it be possible to create a script that wipes the disk then writes the ISO to disk? Currently when i write the ISO it keeps the partition structure as is, not sure if that will cause issues down the road.

Basically i'm open to any ideas that may expedite this task.

The Sad State of Docker

LXer - Fri, 2016-08-26 16:02
I have always been a big fan of Docker and that is very visible if you regularly read this blog. However, I am very disappointed lately how Docker handled the 1.12 release. I like to think of version 1.12 as a great proof of concept that should not have received the amount of attention that it already received. Let’s dive deep into what I found wrong.
