    Would be interesting to know more about the numbers. I wouldn't have expected phoronix.com to use that much resources. What services does the machine run? How is the resource consumption divided...

    Too bad it's not a sub $20 device unlike the one I listed is now.

    I have that TP-Link one. It's great and didn't cost much. About $25. Anyways, I'd recommend realtek in general over shitty ralink and their proprietary crap.

    You probably didn't realize the product was mentioned here only to advertise the referral link.

    Why do you have people with Pentium 2/3 class hardware with 128-256 MB of RAM?

    It could work like openwrt. Read only root for restore and read-write user partition.

    Why would anyone use modems these days?

    I've used 2g, 3g, 4g wireless, wifi, ethernet, adsl, vdsl. They all work without modem software? For third world poor people?

    FWIW, your spinning rust contains tens of megabytes of cache and command queues. It does not KNOW about fat32, but it can possibly do some optimizations that are beneficial to fat32. For example...

    Not exactly true. There are various segments for drives. If XFS becomes too outdated for large scale enterprise use, there are still small scale servers, home computers etc.

    For instance if you...
  11. I'd image another source of improvements would be...

    I'd image another source of improvements would be LTO. LTO makes the kernel binary smaller and thus it can more easily fit in CPU caches. Probably even enable some aggressive optimizations. -O3 and...

    He could run it on the same hardware using FreeBSD? You must be new around here if you're expecting something interesting from the benchmarks. For example the XFS benchmarks have failed in similar...

    XFS loses to EXT4 in all phoronix benchmarks. Maybe not relevant in servers. I'd use ZFS instead on servers and EXT4 on desktop. Btrfs maybe when it's done.

    So, Clang still for development and GCC for optimized release builds (if the critical bugs don't crash it / resulting binary) ?

    You could use hungarian notation and match the prefixes of variable names with ctags like functionality. It's really not a problem.

    Actually there are quite many optimizations in place (e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Return_value_optimization ) and e.g. expression templates and rvalue move semantics are really powerful and do...

    I'm fully aware of the thunks and additional bloat a lambda produces. All compilers cannot optimize it away. For example in D language std library recommends string lambdas....

    Here are few issues. The "higher order" functional stuff involves lots of boilerplate and bloat. The compilers have a hard time optimizing it. For example in C++ there are now rvalue move semantics....

    The problem with Haskell is that it takes so much time to learn it that most people don't want to invest the time. If you learn OOP, you can easily switch between PHP/Python/Ruby/Java/C#/Groovy and...

    The thing is, when all apps run in HTML5/JS cloud, the performance is secondary. Also the performance problems are different. Often you just buy bigger hardware and set up proxies. The real problem...
