    Some ideas:


    Timed AOSP build: AOSP has "notorious" build requirements, stretches new hardware, would be interesting to compare 4/8+ core CPUs.
    Youtube video playback - basically the same as...
  2. int is always 32-bit on Linux and Windows...

    int is always 32-bit on Linux and Windows otherwise compilers wouldn't be backwards compatible - you don't want to compile your code on 64-bit and discover that it doesn't work any more because some...
  3. I just posted an analysis of Ubuntu 14.04 running...

    I just posted an analysis of Ubuntu 14.04 running Firefox, Libreoffice writer and localc in the other thread. With those apps running in parallel the overhead was 32% which agrees with your figure....

    IMHO there is no need for 32-bit even on a 2GB system. It is easy to test specific use cases. From a 2GB VirtualBox VM with Ubuntu 14.04.1 ISO booted into the live desktop, run some apps and look at...

    What's up with Postmark? There's no obvious reason why a 64-bit database would do 10x more transactions than a 32-bit database, when databases are usually IO and not CPU bound. A CPU running 32-bit...
  6. Have you ever seen any benchmarks that show this...

    Have you ever seen any benchmarks that show this claim to be accurate? 64-bit programs will use slightly more memory because each pointer is longer, but the effect of that on most programs will be to...
  7. The other big problem with supporting old x86-32...

    The other big problem with supporting old x86-32 hardware on modern desktop distributions is that the GPU drivers aren't supported any more. Nvidia and ATI have dropped support for old GPUs in their...
  8. It depends on your application and usage, but in...

    It depends on your application and usage, but in general 64-bit should run faster due to doubling the number of general purpose registers. I doubt your Firefox performance is memory bandwidth bound,...

    Do KDE developers even want to merge patches for Unity/Mir on Ubuntu Touch?

    I once walked into a store where they had a wall mounted display of around 30 different phones in a grid. One clearly stood out as easily having the best display. I checked, and it was a G3. First...

    You are wrong if you think that Canonical can take GPL code from random projects and incorporate it into closed source software.

    If you want to, you can take all of Canonical's patches and send...

    The operating system that got 21% of the US laptop market last year is irrelevant?

    How many USB drives that get plugged into Chromebooks do you think are formatted with btrfs? The vast majority...

    The people who dislike Lennart typically do not use Gnome. From their perspective, they see their systems suddenly being switched to Systemd, so that is the first thing they blame. People don't like...
  14. The basic argument that has been given is that by...

    The basic argument that has been given is that by making systemd a dependency of Gnome, distributions that wanted to ship Gnome had to adopt systemd (or develop a plugin compatible alternative that...

    Lennart did not say that he has contacted the police, but he presented the "hitman" as though it were a serious threat to his life:



    The person who made the threat has already been identified...
  16. Saying that "Systemd does a lot of things right",...

    Saying that "Systemd does a lot of things right", that there are some good ideas in it, and praising the boot up speed, is a form of support. There are degrees of support - we are not talking about...

    Making a death threat is illegal. If Lennart really believed what he has said - that he has received death threats and there is a plot to hire a hitman - then he should contact the police instead of...

    His English was fine - he has a noticeable German accent, but a native English speaker could easily understand everything that he said. Which bits did you have trouble understanding?
  19. People did hate Wayland...

    People did hate Wayland, particularly after Ubuntu announced that they were switching to it. People were worried that Ubuntu was popular and powerful enough to be able to force Wayland onto the rest...

    There are other public figures who get some similar amounts of hate, eg. Mark Shuttleworth, Richard Stallman. And Theo de Raadt wasn't exactly loved for his "Linux is garbage" stance.

    It is no...
