    It would not have the responsiveness of a sloth on barbiturates.

    Chrome is much faster than FF on my home PC (i7 3820/32GB/HD7970/25Mb inet).

  2. Metacomment

    Reading all the comments I m beginning to wonder if FF is not a stealthy Apache.org project: every little bit of FF has it's own name.

    Apart:
    - Close tabs button at end of tab bar. IE is per tab.
    - Hide tab bar when only one tab.
    - No status bar.

    - paste and go
    - removal of the things that set it...

    Perhaps I misunderstand what JIT compilers do. As I understand they will compile code fragments to binary and then cache the translated binary code - so they do not repeatedly compile the same stuff...

    I do not disagree with you, Erendorn, that's the best way to go if it's within one's abilities.

    However, I worked for several years in a Physics department at a large university doing system...

    Consider the use the authors are making of the tool. Astrophysical simulations can run for days or weeks or even months. Amortize the cost of just-in-time-compiling the Python code over such run...

    Funny thing is, KDE project did that in KDE3: "konqueror --profile=filemanagement".

    The improvements described are fantastic - disk IO has been a real slow point in Linux. These changes should go a long way to making Linux even more competitive at the top end of the enterprise...

    Reading about this on the wider web I learn that the guy who wrote systemd also wrote pulse audio. Pulse was a bit of a stillbirth in the end, it seems he needs glory, so ginned up systemd.

    Thanks Vim_User, for the explaination about systemd, and about the AMD.VN drivers.

    I just looked at the deps for systemd on an OpenSuSE 12.2 box. It requires a lot of stuff I would not expect of...
