    I for one would also like to see Xen in action, both 3.x and 4.x.

    I also think that Xen and KVM are more server virtualization whereas vbox and vmware are more destop virtualization.

    Now you're just saying what I tried to say: A play by either Shakespear or Wilde is still a play, as a GNU/Linux OS packaged by Fedora or Canonical is still a GNU/Linux OS... Good, that wasn't so...
  3. They package an OS, yes. They have not made that...

    They package an OS, yes. They have not made that OS. They package something which already exists, so what makes Debian a different OS from Fedora? Nothing, in my book ( sure, versions may differ...

    GNU/Linux constitutes an OS.

    The different ways it comes packaged does not in itself constitute an OS in my book. If it does in yours, good for you.

    Hehe, seemd so intentional as there were more than one ;) And calling Ubuntu an OS is also a bit of a stretch I guess, it's distro. Shuttleworth hasn't so far as I know created anything on the OS...

    RMS himself will smythe you for this sentence

    Linux userland!? Linux is a kernel, and has nothing to do with the userland part. The userland is GNU...

    So say that the rsnapshot takes 30 minutes to run, does it guarantee that the last file to be transfered hasn't been altered?

    ... then what? It's a design problem with ext4. Had they gone for COW things would have been better.



    I guess sarcasm isn't your thing. When I have to use linux i tend to go with ext3.

    I...

    Hopefully no one. But what has that to do with how easy it is to make a backup?

    Even with ext4 on a 20 drive raid6 you would potentionally want to do a backup. With or with downtime, that is the...
  10. True enough, but the requirement to make a backup...

    True enough, but the requirement to make a backup of /some/dir at an exact time means for zfs and btrfs ( and any other fs which has snapshots ) that use use one command to get the snapshot, and at...

    While interesting to see how the different FSes performs, there is so much more to it than speed, imho.

    Like the fact that ext4 will loose your data ( it has done, no one will trust it for another...

    Could you rerun the nVidia test with their newly released 256 series beta drivers?

    I seem to remember kwin having an option to disable compositing for fullscreen windows too, which perhaps could...

    So what? All tests at some point or another uses functionality provided by the kernel... So for OS's where the common practice is to compile the kernel, that is imho the relevant test. As a side not...
  15. Interesting indeed

    I just have a few thoughts that would make this test even more interesting, at least for me:

    Setup each OS according to how they're normally set up. Out-of-the box benchmarks are only relevant for...

    I think, as already pointed out, that it's great to see some pace in the unix-driver development. Now if they could just release a 64-bit FreeBSD driver...

    Why not throw in a test with FreeBSD installed on ZFS. There is native support for it since 7.0. I also agree that doing performance tests on betas and release candidates aren't that infomative. So a...
