    True, but Gc<T> is much more clunky than @T - there's no reason they couldn't have kept it and made it syntactic sugar for Gc<T>.
    Rust is a really nice language, but the need to worry about borrowed...
  2. I'd argue the opposite; pointers are used so...

    I'd argue the opposite; pointers are used so often that you want a concise syntax for them. ~ is for owned pointers, and & is for borrowed - once you've got that down the rest is pretty easy...
  3. I've done some work with Rust 0.9 (using the...

    I've done some work with Rust 0.9 (using the Gentoo overlay), so here's my two cents on it:

    The toolchain is pretty easy to work with
    The tutorial on the site is fairly easy to follow
    There...

    While this is progress, I wouldn't say it's ready for regular use by any means, given that it doesn't support phone calls yet.
  5. If being better than ZFS is a tertiary goal, then...

    If being better than ZFS is a tertiary goal, then by extension it sounds like it would be competing with btrfs (which is a direct competitor to ZFS).

    From a practical point of view, btrfs is...

    The big difference is that SATA, etc. are internal ports (eSATA ports are pretty rare, and every mass deployment I've seen has them blocked off if they were present). Firewire is a completely...
  7. Improving Power Consumption

    You can make some pretty decent improvements to your battery life by using powertop. It added roughly an hour of battery life for me.

    No, it's still active. The update for Vim 7.4 came out within a month of the upstream release.

    And if you don't, you just use EasyMotion.


    . should repeat that. Alternatively, you could just map tab to do that.


    I'd argue that . is more similar to redo, or at least an extension of it...
  10. Where Vim really shines is repeated actions and...

    Where Vim really shines is repeated actions and text objects. If you want to delete the next 5 words, it's just 'd5w' (or '5dw'). If you want to delete the entire line, it's just 'dd'. Delete up to...
  11. As someone with thirty-something plugins (some of...

    As someone with thirty-something plugins (some of which are unusable on slower systems with larger files), I'm looking forward to this. There are a lot of issues with vim's architecture that many...

    I agree - btrfs is normally slower than ext4, and I say that as someone who uses it on all my systems. It could be that btrfs benefits greatly from SSD caching, which means it'll go great with bcache...

    I'll second this. The aesthetics don't really matter to me (though I think that changing the colours will diminish the branding), but the please don't make it fixed width. The current design is an...

    It would be pretty interesting to see some benchmarks of btrfs+bcache with various SSD optimizations enabled. Apparently the default behaviour is that btrfs detects the SSD and enables them, but...

    Sabayon has a Python-based package manager, and it hasn't had any problems. It's about as fast as apt-get, though searches seem a lot slower than eix.

    I haven't seen what the new opengl plots look like, but matplotlib's graphs generally look much nicer than gnuplot's, IMO. It's used by scipy, which means you get a much nicer language (Python) as...

    Sabayon is a pretty awesome distro, if you haven't tried it. I've been using it (on the weekly branch) for about half a year now. It has the ease of use of Ubuntu/Debian, but way newer packages and a...
  18. Btrfs is like Gmail - perpetually in beta, and...

    Btrfs is like Gmail - perpetually in beta, and will be used by heaps of regular users before it's officially stable* (as in Debian stable). Some distros already have it as their default. All the core...

    If you have a server where stability is important enough that you're running the LTS version, you should probably be waiting until a month or two after the release anyway. The last LTS is supported...

    It's pretty clear what Ubuntu is thinking about - the people who benefit most from a stable ABI are closed source software vendors. All the open source packages are unaffected, because they can just...
