    It's already happened with ALSA. FreeBSD ports has an ALSA library wrapper:

    When used this way, strdup() is proof that neither strcpy() nor strlcpy() are needed.

    Apple successfully did for Unix what the OSS Unix community has been trying to do for two decades. I can understand why any Unix enthusiast might have a hardon for Apple (well, in the sense of...

    Yes, I ran into this issue a lot at University and I certainly see how this is useful. But what is wrong with using pkgsrc for home directory package management? That worked great on ancient CentOS...

    Yes, I guess I worded this strangely. GCC and Clang do draft features regularly. The difference is GCC and Clang require you to actually turn those features on (-std=c++11, -std=c++1y, -std=c++14)....

    I don't think MS claims anything. But they do have a habit of supporting draft features in their compilers before they're even standardized. For example, VS 2010 has lambda expression support!...

    Linux is lacking (or some distribution was lacking as of January 2014) a driver for the Thinkpad 2x2 BGN+BT 4.0 (some kind of realtek chipset) in T440. Do I pretend that Linux doesn't support common...

    Oh, you suggested formatting at the factory.

    Sorry, I have this bad habit where I don't read posts/e-mails carefully.

    I don't care. I don't even care how it works. It's a black box like any other SATA storage device. Any HDD I connect works without me having to do anything special and I have this reasonable...

    That's not what I meant. If you have to format your brand new SSD so that it performs within spec as you suggest, then that's what sucks about the technology (or your drive). Since any HDD will work...

    Could you run the same test with an HDD? I bet its the disk controller ... or more precisely, the driver that drives it. FreeBSD prints out the read/write speed of each disk on dmesg. Can you check...

    I could care less about your 25 years of experience with UNIX. I'll translate some of your responses for you (obviously exaggerated, sorry):

    I'm more experienced, so therefore I'm right.
