    I don't care if the NSA reads my gaming scores, but I want my brilliant plan to topple zipper monopoly yk encrypted.

    ted t'so works at google to fix this very problem.
    He's been there for years.

    If you're going to futz with your mount options, of all things, be sure to read the docs thoroughly.
    I'm pretty sure that it was the mount options I chose that once nuked my xfs partition:)

    Limba is more elegant, imho, but leaves too much rope for packagers/maintainers/developers to hang users by borking updates with existing apps.

    Almost certainly not the kernel, but perhaps modules, libraries, and gnu-utils (which has been ongoing for many months).
    As rdnetto says, it makes more sense to use something like seL4 which is...

    IMHO, much of the tech lag around linux is due to "politics". It takes the right people to make these changes.
    Open source is somewhat a meritocracy, so achievements count for a lot. In that...

    Didn't I already point out to you, with links, that pa can use a ring buffer (not sure what you mean by "pointer play") and it uses shm?

    That's been a serious sore spot for Linux. Most of its development has focused on performance above all else. It's only fairly recently that there's been serious work to get the frameworks in place...

    Because I'd imagine there is a minimum amount of optimization they could apply so as to ease the work of the drivers. GPU's aren't so different, after all. They all share similar functional units....

    Not that I doubt you, but do you have a reference for that?
    It would be unfortunate if the sole reason for spirv is to allow glsl to become distributable. Seems a missed opportunity.

    That would be an enormous amount of work (very similar work duplicated across each drawing library), but seems to be the intention behind vulkan (let the app developers deal with it).
