    If you don't care about the features BTRFS gives you, why don't you just stay with EXT4?

    This makes no sense at all. If you have a task that's running 24/7 on but requires not so much CPU time (=CPU is doing other work or sleeping in between) making it faster will simply make the cpu to...

    Of course that's true, but the resolution is LOWER for a BIGGER screen. That means the pixel density is A LOT lower. Nobody asks for a laptop with the same pixel density as a phone (that would be...

    I don't really understand what you're trying to say but converting BSD into GPL is possible. Of course the original code stays BSD, (that's one of the few things BSD doesn't allow: it doesn't allow...

    Yes, BSD basically allows everything, the only thing you have to do is include the copyright notice. (That's what all these GPL vs BSD here discussions are about)

    I don't think it's ever going to be faster than ext4 (maybe except for gigantic filesystems). BTRFS was not designed to be faster than ext4, it was designed to have nice features and to be reliable.

    XBMC for FreeBSD has experimental OSS support since 11rc1 . I have no idea whether this work is also being done for Linux (but I see not why you would care for OSS on Linux).

    The Linux devs know you sometimes can't release OSS drivers, and that's why the option is there. If you port a driver (which is mostly the reason why you can't open source it) you can't really say...

    If it was not obvious enough: With zfs send receive backups I do of course mean that you send these backups to another (maybe offsite) machine.

    ZFS with RAIDZ and snapshots can easily protect you from hard drive crashes and "rm -rf *" :) And with send-receive you have an easy and build-in backup tool.
    So yes, I think I can depend on ZFS to...

    Why? There are like tens of million things that have tons of very similar alternatives, and yet they live (happily) next to each other. Why would it be a problem for a kernel/OS?

    Who said it's the fault of Xorg devs?


    I think the Catalyst devs have better things to do than making their drivers work with the latest Xorg 1.11 code, such as making it work properly with the...

    @allquixotic
    IIRC KWin devs used to do this, but the free drivers claim to support things they don't support. So you can't really blame them...

    You seem to be right, the article I remembered was this one: http://www.anandtech.com/show/2881
    But it's about a year older than your source so probably incorrect.

    They claim +90% performance and +50% extra die space.
    All the benefits of an extra core with only +10% extra die space is never going to happen.

    Doesn't Mint LInux already use some patented things which other distro's don't use because of the fear of lawsuits?
    So maybe some distro's won't enable it, but others like Mint will.
