    When I ran Gentoo on my laptop in 2008 I ran with a custom monolithic kernel. I used one of those scripts to detect your hardware and set the kernel config to start with, then I customized it from...

    Everything in /proc is required to be documented. /sys/kernel/debug can have undocumented stuff.

    It isn't that difficult or even very slow to parse the files.

    From a developer point of view it...

    LTO in GCC is supported just as well as anything else. Or do you consider code such as the automatic vectorization optimizer or hidden symbol support "rudely patched in?"

    It takes some time for...

    You could check out the Razor designs. They look a little Appley but that's just because they are thin. The keyboard and control design is unique.

    Alienware laptops have a sort of unique look as...

    That was an example and yes, the anti-spam library is fictional. The real library does something else.

    Did anybody claim that?

    But pick a less obsolete example like MIPS. (And yes, I know LLVM supports MIPS.) You write something like a nifty library to detect spam in emails and you target i386. It...

    Some people seem to think that if software is more than a few years old and works, then it must be a relic, legacy, ancient boring stuff that must be replaced.

    This results in Perl being replaced...

    I run Linux at work for software development and Windows at home, mostly for the games. But when I browse Phoronix from home, it will show up as a Windows browser.

    The data may end up in a new block on a SSD, but the logical address of that data would be in the same place the old data was. So your filesystem would have no way of knowing it was a copy and no way...

    I don't think that you have actually used LLVM?

    Sure, it can be used in the way that you describe. But it can equally be used with the next stage, which is to compile to machine code. This is how...

    Back in 2003 there was a patch to the Linux kernel iptables that allowed the use of two or more interfaces for IP masquerade. It did round robin and failover, just as you want.

    A new connection...

    Ah, another reason to do it. I didn't know about that one.

    Just a second, I'll edit my post so I don't look so dumb. :-)

    That's a fairly common configuration on forum software. It's so the author can fix obvious typos but not rewrite his post after people have responded to it.

    For example, a troll could write a post...

    For extra fun try to build it with profile guided optimization. Or did you already?

    Yes. It was the "not possible" statement that really made me respond. I wanted to make the point that it is possible to install a newer glibc on RHEL 6.

    I haven't tried it on RHEL 6 but I did similar surgery on old RedHat Advanced Server 2.1 systems. So I would take a RPM source package for glibc 2.15 and the current glibc 2.12 and look at the...

    Windows users had to upgrade to get DX11. Not much difference really. The kernel support got updated. The libraries on top of that needed updates. Really it is just easier to install all new software...

    No I had to be careful because it wasn't all implemented and the Microsoft form designer kept trying to add incompatible features to the project.

    It has been a while since I ran any desktop file indexers. In 2009 Beagle was fat, slow and used a lot of RAM. It was written in Mono. However, Tracker was slower, indexed fewer formats, and gave me...

    That would be up to the client. It is still a client receiving bytes using system calls. The data is not magically appearing.
