    The huge fail for Btrfs in sequential reads/writes is indeed real, it just doesn't manifest itself noticeably on an average users desktop because normal programs don't just do sequential reads/writes...

    It's great that Facebook uses and contributes to Btrfs. But overall, the number of patches being submitted to the Ext 4 mailing list is significantly higher than on the Btrfs mailing list, indicating...

    Btrfs needs more corporate support

    For all the brouhaha over Btrfs being the future of the Linux filesystem (including from Theodore Tso of EXT4 fame as far back as 2009...
  7. Latency, Disk IO scheduler (BFQ vs others), Regular scheduler (BFS vs others), Boot

    It would be great to see a comparison of Linux disk IO schedulers, especially how the new and exciting BFQ compares to all the others. A comparison of regular schedulers including the Brain Fuck...

    Great job to the AMD devs who are working on the open source Radeon driver!

    GCC was already the established compiler suite when LLVM was started - the people at the University of Illinois should have just improved on it or at least licensed their work under the GPL. The FSF...
  10. Way to go GCC and its Copyleft License!

    I'm glad GCC is going strong, and way to go to the copyleft GPL license that governs the project! It annoys me that a project like LLVM is diverting developer attention from GCC. One of the main...

    Lennart wants to reinvent the wheel in his quest to make non-distro apps install and work automagically. This feat has already been accomplished 8 years ago, with KLIK:

    Btrfs seems to be neck and neck with Ext4, actually beating it in the most realistic benchmarks (kernel compilation and dbench). This seems to be a pattern on hard drives, while Btrfs does more...

    Why not test Btrfs instead of F2FS?

    Why not test Btrfs instead of (or in addition to) F2FS? Btrfs is much more relevant for desktops, and dare I say more exciting in terms of features.

    Software fallbacks are the way to go!

    Of course software fallbacks are the way to go! I can't believe Gallium3D doesn't have them! After all, you can always chose to turn the software fallback off if you want speed and visual mistakes,...

    BTRFS is slow as ****

    So let me see... BTRFS is slower than EXT4 pretty much everywhere, sometimes MUCH slower. All the purported features of BTRFS that are supposed to make BTRFS better are pie-in-the-sky as far as I can...

    BTRFS apologists proven wrong
