    I'd very much like to see raspberry as a backend for HTPC and Chromecast as frontend. Raspberry is too cumbersome and big and slow at booting (my smart TV turns off power each time I shut down TV)....

    It's a known issue. I have it too. Switching playback to remote sound card hangs. Both PA's own protocol and airplay.

    Well isn't owncloud PHP? PHP sucks ass when it comes to performance. You shouldn't use interpreted languages and especially the worst of them (PHP) on embedded hardware.

    I think there are few fundamental issues that make such integrated router/file servers bad:

    Performance: NFS is fast, but CIFS and AFP require more CPU power. These are underpowered even if they...

    I use Linux because it's great for servers, embedded and development desktops, but most games only work on Windows and Macs are great when travelling since their power consumption is low (only on Mac...

    I'd say the LTO is broken if it makes changes that affect program semantics. Maybe C / C++ are bad languages, maybe it's the LTO algorithms. Anyways, these kind of optimizations need to be safe to be...

    I also use Windows 8.1 for gaming and Mac OS X and can sure tell you that the rest of the world doesn't care. Mac apps are huge. Windows games are huge. The binaries are huge. Nothing is optimized...

    Exactly. Also the LLVM internal design is better thanks to BSD. Competent paid developers were allowed to participate. With GPL the problem is that you can't easily hire anyone to do the job. Mostly...

    Well it boils down to the fact that BSD is ideologically more free and better if you don't like the toenail eating RMS cult. Some people valuate capitalism over communism.

    I thought this article was about 802.11ac routers, not 802.11n crap. 802.11n is ancient. For what it's worth, I've already had two 802.11n routers, one with 4 x gigabit ports and one from Buffalo...

    But how much it really matters? Firefox static initialization takes a while, especially if you have bookmarks and history and some old session. SSD can read disk 600 MB/s and the binary is smaller...

    I'm just saying that you're wasting storage resources with too small binaries. The manufacturers can't sell new equipment if the software doesn't grow "naturally", that is according to Moore's law....

    I understand that 5% off is important in 4 MB flash storage. However in desktop apps it doesn't matter at all. Hard drives are now 1 TB (ssd) and 4 TB (3.5" hdd). You can also set up raid6 or zfs. So...

    Exactly. They can have 4 MB of Flash and 128-512 MB of RAM. Usually might be the case the whole file system is compressed and uncompressed to RAM while booting. Both kernel and root in the flash. The...

    Another good use case is embedded. Routers and small devices might have 2 to 64 MB of flash. Even with XZ compression modern Linux can be 3 MB on x86 with almost every feature disabled. Too bad Linus...

    He was just trolling. I checked my router and it has 64 MB of flash. So.. machines that have 4 MB of storage are obsolete crap. Don't use them. You can't fit anything there, barely even the kernel...

    FWIW, Systemd has 10 times faster dhcp client at least.

    Most people have really cheap low-quality speakers or headphones and don't care as long as they can play something. 500ms lag? it's ok. only virtual 2.0 from eax/openal? it's ok. high quality 7.1...

    You should just use PulseAudio. It's getting better every year and in principle it has zero-copy audio support.

    Spotify is a Web 2.0 app nowadays, https://play.spotify.com/
    People can make it look whatever they want. The power of Web 2.0 / HTML5 / JS.
