    Ubuntu + KDE = Lost opportunity

    In my opinion, Ubuntu made a bad choice by going with Gnome early on. They should have started with KDE and used their resources to help polish it up until it was as seamless an experience as gnome 2...

    Who cares if it's standard or not?

    Seriously. IMO, who gives a rats a$$ if it's 'standard' or not. Does it cover the platforms you need to code for? Does it make your life easier? and most importantly, does it help you or result in...

    BTW Michael, you did do a ZFS vs EXT4+LVM on RAID benchmark back in April, do you not still have those disks?

    I should mention that I'm not going to do RAID5 on one SSD of course, but it gives me the opportunity/excuse to reinstall my whole system which has 6 other drives.

    As long as you have 3 HDD of the same RPM (need not be SSD's) you should be ok. Just create the same sized partition on each of them if they aren't the same size. It's not terribly scientific but...

    Filesystem benchmark request

    I've bought an SSD and looking for the right setup to use that has RAID and LVM capabilities. I'm thinking of BTRFS or MDRAID5+LVM+EXT4|XFS so what I'd like to see as a benchmark is something that is...

    Yes, I've heard that before. I'm not sure the patents thing is an issue. IIRC you can have a patent with the implementation being open source. What is the issue I believe is that they don't actually...

    Not if they released it under a GPL compatible license, then Linux gets an OpenGL 4.4 implementation. Not sure about gallium but they could maintain a separate graphics stack.
  9. Yes!

    I've been looking to buy a new graphics card for some time. I've traditionally only bought NVIDIA, but with the price differences, latest review of the AMD cards and the progress being made on open...

  11. .... what works/doesn't work on Linux

    So being a Linux centric site... what I really want to know is what works and doesn't work on Linux? Does all the hardware work? Sound, LAN, etc?
  12. Include LVM (Logical Volume Manager) in the FS benchmarks.

    I've seen a lot of phoronix fs benchmarks, and what I'd like to see as a fair comparison to the btrfs benchmarks is ext4+LVM and xfs+LVM. It always appears that brtfs is so much slower than the other...

    And that's your personal opinion... who knows what will happen with it in the future. I personally think it's a waste of time and resources, however, if you are reporting on something to the general...
  14. But they only made a *little* more progress :)

    It's not hard to see that Michael really really doesn't like Mir.

    Hey Michael, how about at least trying to be objective when you talk about canonical and Mir in particular?

    It has nothing to do with Linus, he doesn't own copyright over code he didn't write.

    Control Test

    What I'd really like to see is one of the things Martin suggested in his benchmarking article that should be easy for Michael to do in future benchmarks of compositors; include a control test. That...

  19. What is surprising is how poor the KDE performance is

    While we are hammering on Unity, perhaps we should be hammering on the KDE guys as well.
