"The kernel is huge and bloated, and our icache footprint is scary. I mean, there is no question about that. And whenever we add a new feature, it only gets worse."
Actually, I find it hard to interpret this in another way than Linux is bloated. Linus T says explicitly "KERNEL IS BLOATED...THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT IT". He says so. But of course, what do I know. Probably he talked about Windows kernel, or he talk about James Bond having a dinner and getting bloated, or maybe he just meant that... the Linux kernel is bloated? I mean, come on, Linus T SAYS it is bloated. He says so. But no, Linus didnt mean that? How do you know what Linus means? Can you read his mind?
I feel like trying to convince a madman:
-Look, it is raining.
-No it is not
-Well you are wet. It IS raining!
-No I am not wet
-But you just dried water off from your face, you are WET! Hallo? You are WET!
-No I am not.
I mean... what else can you say? If he refuses to admit he is wet, then I can say nothing more. Clearly, he is a crazy madman. Or just plain weird? What do you think if you met a guy that behaved just like that?
www.sap.com. SUN does not own SAP, SAP it is not SUN propaganda, just as you claim. The SAP certified benches show that SAP on Linux on 8 CPUs, had only 87% CPU utilization. On Solaris, the 8 cpus achieved 99% utilization (scales better). I have been taught that 87% is less than 99%. But hey, what do I know? Maybe it is NOT raining, maybe 87% is more than 99%?
My opinion on a Troll differs from your opinion. I think most people's view on Troll agrees with mine. If so, then it is YOU that is the Troll. If you can not back up your claims (which I always ask you to do, but you never do) then you are spreading lies and FUD and are Trolling. You have accused me of being a liar, but never once, provided any evidence on that. Never ever. So, what you claim is not true, I dont lie. In that case, it is you that lies about me. And hence, you are the liar. Not me. QED!
