    I think Sony made a good choice with using FreeBSD. The FreeBSD kernel is lean and efficient and FreeBSD's UFS2 filesystem offers great responsiveness . I have tried wine gaming under FreeBSD and...

    I can't believe that some of you would want to drop support for 586 class CPUs. There are still some good uses for older machines, such as a router/firewall/low volume email server. I am still...

    How is the stability of reiser4 on 3.5? I tried it some time ago on a 2.6 kernel, I think 2.6.<twenty something>, on a reformat of my home partition and the filesystem got corrupted after only about...

    Why not just use gcc with the "-O0" option? Do you have any idea how fast gcc is with the "-O0" option? How about a comparison of the performance of the resultant binaries? Without this you might...

    Why does everyone always have to complain about the Nvidia driver not being open source? Nowhere on the box that your card came in did it say, "Includes free open-source Linux driver." If you...

    Wouldn't it be better to implement an IFS to extend FAT32 to allow files larger 4GB without changing the filesystem format? It would work similarly to how umsdos works. Call it SuperFAT or...

  8. I think secure boot will just create security problems

    Secure boot seems like something that will just frustrate users and may make computers less secure. Quite often computer users will throw security to the wind if it makes their computer work the way...

    Thank you.

    Does anyone know where I can download this functional btrfsck tool? I'm not sure if the git repos listed on btrfs wiki site are current or which repo I should pull from. Thanks.

    Steam will be released for Linux around the time Duke Nukem Forever is released. :p
  14. HL1 and Source engine games run nearly flawlessly...

    HL1 and Source engine games run nearly flawlessly under Wine 1.3.0. If (and I emphasize "if"), Steam is getting ported to GNU/Linux, I would say it's a good bet that Steam will be available in the...

    I wonder what Richard Stallman would say about Steam on GNU/Linux with all the DRM.

    Valve has recently announced the release of Steam, including all Source and Half-Life engine games to many new platforms. These platforms are Minix, FreeBSD on ia64, NetBSD on m68k, OpenBSD on MIPS,...

    I don't think Valve will release Steam for GNU/Linux in the near future. It doesn't seem profitable for them. In fact it seems quite the opposite. I would venture a guess that only about five to...

    FreeBSD's UFS is well known for it's speed with soft updates enabled. It should have been enabled. Using FreeBSD's UFS without soft updates is like using ext4 with extents turned off. I would even...
