    OT question (concerning the C720):
    Do you run Linux on it, or keep it stock (w/ or w/o crouton)?
    In case you're running Linux, which distribution?

    The network installer uses the same kernel and (more-or-less) the same initrd image as the normal installer.
    The fact that you can have the installer install updated packages (instead of the DVD...

    What makes you think Fedora is about to become a long term distro?
    Fedora is, and will remain a bleeding edge distro. (If you want to an RPM based distro w/ long term support get CentOS or RHEL).

    You are *very* short sighted. Any issues concerning the install image kernel are complete show-stoppers.

    E.g. I've just finished installing F20 on a number of high-end servers based on Xeon...

    Was DMA-BUF symbols GPL only?
    ... Goes to check.
    Yep: All the symbols I see are still EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL making them invisible to any proprietary drivers.

    *None* of the big-iron systems I ever seen used such setup, starting from Linux *military grade* systems up to mainframes running in banks, hospitals and insurance companies.

    I never managed to get USB serial to reliably handle OOPs messages, especially under load.
    Seems that the USB stack is far too complicated to get OOPs messages out of a crashing kernel.

    Care to share bugzilla bug reports, or are you simply trolling?




    This is all nice and dandy, but unless you report it and supply the developers with the information they require, how do you...

    What the hell are you talking about. Seriously! Are you on drugs? Where did you see anything about Microsoft?

    For the sake of being nice (for God knows what reason) let me reiterate my point....

    I must admit that I don't see the relevance.
    Common wisdom ties the number of bugs in code to the total number of code lines - which in my view is utter bullshit, as it fails to take into account...

    Sure, 5-9's servers are not seen as life critical servers. Large ITs (E.g. banks, insurance companies, stock-exchanges, etc) pay 50-300K$ a server (loaded with RAS features) simply because the extra...

    I have large number of Fedora servers w/o RPMFusion.

    In general, I only enable RPMFusion on workstations / laptops.

    Again, micro-kernels built around the notion that monolithic kernels are inherently unstable *by design*.
    In-order to solve this inherent design issue, micro-kernels pay a hefty price when it comes...

    *Shrug*
    I work in a market that require 5-9's reliability. All the systems that surrounds me run Linux (or big-iron Unix). I'd imagine that this is sufficient proof that monolithic kernels are just...

    If 20+ years of micro-kernel development thought us anything is that the concept simply doesn't work. Period.
    Whether or not micro-kernel has theoretical advantage is completely irrelevant in the...
