    Phoronix: The Linux 3.16 Kernel Already Has A Ton Of New Features

    The Linux 3.15 kernel isn't even expected for release until later today, but thanks to the Linux 3.16 merge window opening a week early to adjust to Linus Torvalds' upcoming schedule, we already have a good idea for a portion of the changes for the next kernel cycle...

    What a parade of links pointing back to phoronix, makes one wonder what was the true intent of the article.

      Did you want him to copy/paste the text of all those other links into one mega article? (That's a rhetorical question...)

      makes one wonder what was the true intent of the article.
      The point was to summarize the changes that 3.16 has had so far. If you weren't interested in that, then why did you click on it?

        How about summarizing once it hits rc and be done with it instead of posting a new article on each new git push resulting in multiple articles with lots of spaghetti links back and forth between umpteen reviews of the same unreleased kernel?

          How about pointing to kernelnewbies or to lkml? When comes to technical things phoronix is just a copycat of other sources. It's not surprising since Michael has no clue about most of the things he's writing about.

            Well, "has no clue" is way to harsh, he does make some mistakes because it's unavoidable, even if he was the developer behind every project (which is obviously impossible) he'd still be wrong from time to time because often there's other/many devs working on a project and you can't know all the nuances/issues your dev mates solve. As a reporter his knowledge is more than enough to report on usual phoronix news and when someone knows _way_ to much it's also bad because they use so much technical slang that one barely understands what he's talking about. I had quite some issues understanding what phoronix is writing about the first few months I started reading it.

              It is because of ranking . Phoronix is more popular then Kernel .

                I perfectly agree: it's stupid to expect someone to have specific knowledge over the whole rang of topics treated by this website. I doubt even it could exist such person.
