    ZFS, the Zealot's File System :)

    I like it, use it, it has many things going for it but the uncritical die-hard adoration some of its less informed users devote to it borders on the irrational. It...

    If only it used just sockets! Dbus also runs as a process, imagine that!
  3. Rootless?

    Sorry, I'm confused as to the meaning of "rootless X": does it mean that X runs as an unprivileged process, or that it does not manage the whole screen?

    The "fragmentation" issue is always made to sound much worse than it really is. The relevant toolkits (e.g. Gtk and Qt) are the same across all distros and desktops. So are dbus, xdg, udev and...

    I agree, we don't need another player, esp. since Gnome Music is being developed with a touch-oriented UI too. I'm using rhythmbox and am mostly happy with it. I would just like it to have a built-in...

    Ah well

    The zealots who hated Ubuntu because it had upstart will now be able to hate it because it uses systemd.

    I think the mount option is deprecated, btrfs now automatically switches to that mode when it sees a SSD. Also AFAIK it's not supposed to make a performance difference, the purpose is rather to...

    I believe that Clang can generate faster code than the GCC 4.2 series that FreeBSD has used so far so no, it won't result in a slower system, it will be a system that runs somewhat faster, builds...

    Hmmm... One would think that that's precisely why programmers like to use languages that let them focus more on "real world" problems rather than one the machine's low-level technical details, but...

    Send/receive is great, but what happened to raid 5/6 that were due for 3.6?

    From the screenshots it seems that it does not support the Global Menu like in Ubuntu.

    Not quite. While I agree that overally BSD has few advantages over Linux, here are still niches where it shines. For firewalling, for example, BSD's packetfilter is much better and easier to use than...

    Linux is for l4m3rZ who toy around with dumb stuff like HPC, 3D modelling, photo editing, virtualisation, UI development etc. FreeBSD at least is for professional tasks such as learning vi and...

    Yes, I agree that this Microsoft's claim is FUD, but my point was that the anti-Mono stance is the same type of FUD. It is virtually certain that the Linux kernel (just like any other program,...
