Jeff: You're drawing way too many conclusions from a test with only a single sample. Milan: "Enhancement" is a misnomer. It does not make the audio better, it only makes it different.
Anybody who claims that lossless formats are _never_ better is just as ignorant as anyone who thinks that 192KHz is better. Also, if you must have lossy audio, go with a format (ogg) that doesn't require licensing.

I'm looking at the slightly blurry palm fronds details behind the smoke that have been wiped out details on the tree trunk that have been wiped out graffiti color that has been altered far building that has been blurred and not liking FXAA.
jdege said: It's a lot easier to install Windows and Linux on separate drives, and to swap the drives, than to keep them working together in a dual boot. It isn't hard at all. Even if you re-install Windows, it takes all of two minutes to boot from the Linux install disc and put GRUB back in the MBR. Swapping drives is unnecessary mechanical wear-and-tear. It's like stopping to physically replace the gearbox in your car because it's too hard to push in the clutch and move the stick to switch gears.

I have the same problem as Gregopet. I've never had an on-board chip that didn't leak buzz and hum whenever the hard drive was active, or whenever I just used the scroll wheel on the mouse, or something else that really should be isolated from the sound output.

That'd be because the document is clearly titled "Mechanical Keyboard Guide". Logitech keyboards are not mechanical, despite being similarly priced. You're probably not quite getting what you pay for :) Jcollum on October 23, 2010 2:35 PM said: "Also I think the article totally missed the ergo aspect. Many many developers care about ergonomics -- would you trust a tennis player who didn't care whether his racket strained his ... uhhh ... whatever muscle that's called." Many many other developers realize that the word "ergonomic" could be replaced by "body-fitting". A wide split keyboard is not required to be ergonomic, if your body is not wide. The point of the split keyboard is so you're not pulling your arms inward. If your shoulders aren't wide, then you're probably not pulling your arms in on a standard keyboard. Would you trust a programmer who always used some keyboard library only because the name was a buzz-word instead of some other more efficient keyboard library?

Personally, I prefer 3RVX :)

I've got a Filco Majestouch. It thought it was hideously expensive before I got it, but after using it for several months, I vastly prefer it to any other keyboard I've used. Also, if somebody with a knife tries to sneak up behind me, it's sturdy and heavy enough to use as a weapon :)

Not sure if it's an issue with Google Reader or your comment system, but it seems that every time a comment is added to an article, Google marks the article as unread.
