    I chose the Radeon HD 6870 based on past reviews by Phoronix. Still seems like a perfect choice.

    Odd that new generation cards still don't run fast enough under the open-source driver to even...
  2. Debian GNU/kFreeBSD jessie could be interesting...

    Debian GNU/kFreeBSD jessie could be interesting once the FreeBSD 10.0 kernel is ready, due to generally still using GCC 4.8 (same as Ubuntu).

    Is there a Phoronix popcon yet? Or an Amazon link (with referral code) to all buy our popcorn accessories?

    It could hardly be called a *vote* if the project acted that way.
  5. The /proc filesystem is a standard feature of...

    The /proc filesystem is a standard feature of glibc-based systems: GNU/Linux, kFreeBSD and Hurd, therefore I'd describe it as portable to all of Debian's ports, hence why sysvinit was portable. ...

    I've seen this repeated a lot here. xnox from Canonical/Ubuntu already began porting Upstart to Debian GNU/kFreeBSD for us, it can build, it runs, though it doesn't know yet how to initialise...

    Call me old fashioned, but when you mention sockets being opened and a service being spawned on-demand, I think of:
    http://man.freebsd.org/inetd
    "The inetd utility appeared in 4.3BSD"
    "4.3BSD was...

    This is actually remarkable. They've taken onboard the improvements of a popular unofficial derivative by merging this in. What other console OS is this savvy, or even permits such a thing to...

    It does feel kinda cool to find out where Debian or its derivates end up being used, though. Like Valve's SteamOS, like Nokia's N900 phone, like all of Google's servers, like laptops for astronauts...

    If systemd becomes the official default, there is sufficient interest among developers and users that there *will* be OpenRC and/or Upstart as alternative init systems available on GNU/Linux. Most...

    That only searches for binary packages. eglibc is the name of a *source* package, and from that, the libc6 binary package (providing libc.so.6 and ld-linux) and others are built....

    I tried to correlate Sony's list with packages available in Debian and hence probably available on SteamOS. It seems there must be quite a bit of shared code between these platforms, even if the...

    Soft-updates are available since at least 8.x kernels, but the installer for Debian GNU/kFreeBSD didn't enable them yet (FreeBSD itself does, on all except the root filesystem). So that feature was...

    Many thanks for this, but please note that kfreebsd-image-10.0-0-amd64 10.0~svn259068-1 still had heavy debugging options enabled. I suspect that was the version used here for benchmarking. The...

    My initial reaction was strongly cautious. But if you already use these social networks (because that's where many real people are) it's surely useful to have an open-source client for them. Not all...

    That sounds like a good school.

    My only exposure to VB was in my free time with a copy I'd 'acquired', and was crucial to keeping me interested in programming.

    In school we only learned to use...

    Actually, even reading from the PDF document isn't my idea of fun. The content is great. But not being a publisher / editor / graphic designer I maybe don't understand certain nuances e.g. breaking...
