  1. If you choose your filesystem based on a bunch of...

    If you choose your filesystem based on a bunch of artificial benchmarks that show how "fast" it is, you are an idiot!

    Choose a filesystem based on requirements and testing. If you have only the...
  2. Because BTRFS is not about performance, and...

    Because BTRFS is not about performance, and that's all these toy comparisons look at. Yes, it should be improved, but the primary reason is making your data available. And that means the data you...

    For the love of god!!! Michael, please, please, please stop doing filesystem comparisons.

    You are comparing one aspect (speed) of three classes of filesystem which have entirely different...

    Proofreading, it works bitches.

  5. Just to point out the obvious: This is not really...

    Just to point out the obvious: This is not really what BTRFS is about, so it's all a bit meaningless.

    I've not used it so far for anything important as it still looks immature to me, but BTRFS is...
  6. Not only in embedded. Once a system gets old...

    Not only in embedded. Once a system gets old enough to outlive demand for RAM appropriate for it's bus/speed/rate, then the price goes much higher than newer stuff. I.e. I want some RAM for an older...
  7. Sorry, but you really don't know what you're...

    Sorry, but you really don't know what you're talking about.

    I (plus many others) use the likes of sed and grep every day of our working life! Scarcely thought about? Not at all.

    As to the idea...

    You might want to read the T&C first. There could well be an NDA of some description.
  9. Except there is no mention of Image Quality....

    Except there is no mention of Image Quality. Maybe the DirectX looks twice as good. Who knows.

    Also, it's kind of shady of Phoronix talking about all this optimising of the Intel drivers, and how...
  10. Last I read they had corruption issues with the...

    Last I read they had corruption issues with the RAID5/6 code, so it got delayed. I think since then it may have stagnated a bit, so it requires a chunk of work to bring it into line with master, and...
  11. Ah bugger! I got mixed up with the...

    Ah bugger! I got mixed up with the Silverlight/Moonlight. That's where the DRM cack is (or rather isn't) which is why Linux can't access Netflix and friends.

    Regarding the GUI stuff: Point being...
  12. Yes, because when it (mono) first came out there...

    Yes, because when it (mono) first came out there were a lot of suspicions about motives. Microsoft have often used dubious practices. The fear was that once people had invested time/money/effort, MS...

    coder543, you seem to have missed the point of the article. It is comparing versions of GCC, not Intel vs. AMD.
  14. And something else that's coming that is really...

    And something else that's coming that is really bad for Valve?... Apple and MS App stores baked into the OS installation. Then valve drop back to being a plain engine producer / game publisher. If...
  15. What Valve should do: Transparent...

    What Valve should do:

    Transparent cross-platform build with Valve tools
    The dev shouldn't have to invest time or energy even thinking about if it is worth his while to support Mac/Linux. It...

    And now it's hit engadget! Cue the misplaced fawning over the misrepresented and bogus results.

    As an aside, the guy at http://www.servethehome.com/ has done tests of systems with Xeon's power...
  17. OK, I'm not the original person calling the...

    OK, I'm not the original person calling the comparison bogus, but here are some issues:
    1. They compare a measured value against the TDP of the Xeon, not the actual usage. The Xeon was at 15%, and...
  18. 100MN!!!!

    Wow! That's heavy, man!!!
  19. That's actually only on the first graph.

    That's actually only on the first graph.
  20. Something looks very wrong here...

    First: Graph says milliwatts. I suspect that's a mistake, or you've just discovered a pretty amazing system.

    Second on the first graph:

    I don't see it. The way I read that graph is that in .32...
