    Well I tried latest systemd on raspberry pi and it was quute slow at starting up. At least it's getting more bloated.
  2. So you could say that GPL coders like RMS were...

    So you could say that GPL coders like RMS were good back in the day, but currently if you want to hire good developers, they're all using BSD/MIT. GPL coders basically suck at the moment. If you...

    Go read about Haskell and Rust and maybe reconsider. I have been following c++.moderated newsgroup and it's quite obvious that D's author, Walter Bright, often copies ideas presented there. The long...

    He's right in the sense that the internal tree in GCC isn't as strongly typed as in some research compilers made with functional languages. C/C++ sucks ass so it's not possible to make a decent...

    750W in a small case? The cables are also quite long.
  6. Isn't D a toy language? I don't understand the...

    Isn't D a toy language? I don't understand the need for a C++ clone. It seems C++ 11, 14 and 17 pretty much cover all the "innovations" the D author collects from C++.moderated newsgroups ? I find it...
  7. BSD license has the problematic attribution...

    BSD license has the problematic attribution clause. MIT is much more practical for commercial use. Imagine using some library like x264 in a smart TV and you'd need to display authors of all small...
  8. "Faster than native" would also require...

    "Faster than native" would also require competitive optimizers. GCC is 14,5M lines of code. Linux kernel is huge. They develop it at 2000-3000 LOC per day. That's 1M LOC per year MAX. HHVM isn't big....
  9. "This compilation process allows for all sorts of...

    "This compilation process allows for all sorts of optimizations that cannot be made in a statically compiled binary, thus enabling higher performance" is bullshit. It might be higher performance than...

    Imagine if the sites had originally used some less shitty languages like

    Why do you hate Linux? Do you want it to be only used by tinfoil hat commies? Ordinary people live in a world where web services are primary means of communication. People also have GPS in many...

    GPL products are usually of much lower quality than BSD code. Compare gnu libc and musl. Musl wins. Compare LLVM and GCC. Much less code in LLVM. tmux vs gnu screen? The BSD always wins. BSD cares...

    To some extent but the kernel seems to grow at a steady pace even if you don't enable any new features. I think LTO would help here.

    Some argue that since hard drives are 4-6 TB now, kernel using...
  14. Ok I can see it now. For something like...

    Ok I can see it now. For something like conference usb keys when the parallel performance isn't that important but you can set up a 20 port hub to do the job.
  15. It's insane to trust BTRFS right now with...

    It's insane to trust BTRFS right now with critical data. Sure it has fancy features and fast development model, but in phoronix benchmarks it often loses to ext4 in speed and no offense but I don't...
  16. Amen. On a more serious note, what's exactly...

    Amen. On a more serious note, what's exactly wrong with ZFS? Some people just want to get shit done and ZFS just so happens to provide a stable and robust filesystem for them. That really can't be...
  17. If you're ever flashed Linux images, dd is the...

    If you're ever flashed Linux images, dd is the utility. The only thing it's lacking is a progress indicator.
  18. I'm probably also missing something but if...

    I'm probably also missing something but if someone is so clueless that doesn't know how to do this with bash / gnu parallel & dd, maybe he shouldn't be doing it in the first place? Why would such a...

    Yes but OS X doesn't support NTFS that well IIRC. I use OS X on my notebook.
  20. I know I'd have to stick with FAT32/exFAT due to...

    I know I'd have to stick with FAT32/exFAT due to Windows/OS X compatibility, but I could also format other partitions for Linux systems only. In fact this is what I have on most USB keys, a FAT32...
