    No, docker uses lxc (Linux containers) which uses cgroups and everything runs on the same kernel - just the same as GnomeApps. The plan is that Gnome Apps will be able to share versioned library...

    Do you have any evidence that 32 bit code running in amd64 on a 64 bit processor has any performance hit? Because it shouldn't - 32 bit pointers are well supported on amd64 CPUs for obvious...

    How many Pentium 4 systems shipped with 4gb of ram? Is it worth the time and effort to acquire a P4 system and then try to upgrade the ram so that it is sufficient to run a modern desktop, given that...

    Sure, if all you care about is RAM usage.. But if you care about performance (extra registers, new instruction sets etc) and having software that is better tested (it has been reported that there are...

    You were taking about snapshots. When you delete a snapshot, all of the snapshot data (delta from original data) and the metadata is deleted, and that space is available for reuse. Additionally, if...

    What do you expect it to do? When your drive is full, the only options are to add more space or delete stuff. Obviously it can't just automatically delete your data... So if you fill the drive, you...

    Firefox doesn't use the toolkits, so it won't work with them. This is just the idea of replacing the existing XUL renderer/interface with a HTML/CSS/Javascript renderer and interface. Mozilla's...

    The test would depend on what you thought had regressed? ie. if you think CPU is slower, then choose one of the computational benchmarks, if you think 3D is slower, then choose one of the game...

    That would be my guess too. Maybe the ASRock BIOS is setting a lower p-state default for some cores, and for some reason the kernel isn't overriding it until 3.18? Or perhaps some of the cores are...

    Most monitors can only show 60fps and most desktops and drivers enable vsync so the game won't render more than 60fps anyway.

    Why do you think a dependency on a systemd library (like libsystemd0) is not a dependency on systemd? Do you realise that the systemd libraries are part of systemd and are built directly from the...

    That's not strictly true. What Lennart said (at least in the sandboxing Gnome video) was that packaging systems are useful for developers writing apps, and that he expects individual libraries etc....

    The reason not to make btrfs a dependency isn't because "btrfs is too new", it's because making a package manager depend on a specific filesystem is probably a bad idea.

    That excuse doesn't change the fact that the version in Jessie has lots of bugs, whereas the more recent versions in Fedora and Ubuntu have far fewer bugs. If the newer drivers are just "pre release...
