  1. and next...?

    I am curious what the developes will do once LLVMLinux enters maintenance mode (all needed patches upstream and LLVM officially supported). I know that one of the earlier LLVM porters later tried...
  2. Most likely the suckless people do not favour...

    Most likely the suckless people do not favour Clang or newer versions of gcc, since they are based on C++. Since lots of them admire Plan9, I guess kencc would be the best.
  3. The idea is probably to make a pure suckless.org...

    The idea is probably to make a pure suckless.org OS, which would mean using sbase and ubase rather than coreutils.

    For compilers, I think GNU binutils + gcc will stay for a while, but there was...

    Looking at the official github of path64 also shows no activity
  5. forks

    There are a number of open64 forks,like openuh and ekopath. Perhaps they are more active?
  6. That and having a preconfigured coreboot "distro"...

    That and having a preconfigured coreboot "distro" with useful payloads (syslinux?). I have long wanted to try coreboot but been afraid because of the potential problems if something goes wrong.
  7. Too bad... I had hoped for openrc. If the choice...

    Too bad... I had hoped for openrc. If the choice is between systemd and upstart, then systemd is definitely better.
  8. I was hoping for Ouya releasing a SteamOS console...

    I was hoping for Ouya releasing a SteamOS console with its Android app store offered in parallel by emulation similar to that in SailfishOS ... oh well, perhaps it will come...

    Microkernel

    Since Hurd is a microkernel design, I guess the real measure of success would be a reduced line count. Personally, I think the Genode OS with L4 (fiasco) seems far more interesting than the...
  10. Not Android. Google has a strict no GPL in...

    Not Android. Google has a strict no GPL in userspace policy. Before Android I thought that the GNU/Linux name was useless since it was implicit in the name Linux. Now that Linux (the kernel) supports...
  11. I think a combined micro payment crowd funding...

    I think a combined micro payment crowd funding and bug/feature request voting system could be interesting. The number of votes for a specific change is then directly proportional to donations...

  13. disk image or live cd?

    Too bad that the only download they offer is a source code download

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/genode/files/genode/13.11/

    the last live cd that they produced was 2010-11

    My wife runs OpenSUSE with KDE. It is my favourite distro for the "I-just-want-the-damn-computer-to-work-and-be-easy" users. Personally I use Arch, but my first distro was OpenSUSE and it still holds...
  15. I think the "interesting" aspect of this work...

    I think the "interesting" aspect of this work might be getting ARM-based "hackintosh phones" (XNU-kernels running non-apple ARM hardware, hosting a modified iOS)

    Personally I do not see why one...
  16. Cool... the more the merrier (if drivers can be portable)

    Nice work! How much does XNU actually differ from Mach? Something that might be interesting to get working for XNU would be DDELinux together with DDEKit-XNU. DDE/DDEKit has already been ported to...
  17. Easy way to test: the x86_64 Arch repositories

    The Hawaii desktop can easily be installed binary on Arch linux. I have tried to play with it some, but there are unfortunately no good instructions for now how to use it as an everyday desktop. Last...

    debian debate

    For a nice wiki-style debate with pros and cons for the different options, see:

    https://wiki.debian.org/Debate/initsystem

    far less polarized than the phoronix debate :)

    Personally I think...

    openrc?

    Gentoo's openrc works on both Linux and FreeBSD (also ArchBSD uses it). Considering the similar aims of Debian and Gentoo when it comes to portability and being more of a "framework" not only for...

    Hi

    Cool that you also are interested in the idea :) The thing that made me a bit hesitant about trying to build a new distribution from the ground up was that no matter how I would do it, I would...
