    Gentoo is brilliant. I'm using a derivative (Sabayon - because I'm too impatient to compile everything from scratch), but I use portage enough to see its influence.
    For anyone who hasn't tried it,...

    The KDE maintainers are very keen to avoid a repeat of the KDE4 fiasco - IIRC, that was part of the motivation for splitting the SC into three different projects.
    I'm actually looking forward to...

    License incompatibility does have implications for end users though, since it means that ZoL will never make it into the mainline kernel, which substantially reduces the support it gets. In my...

    Arch, etc. care about QA, but in a different way. The bleeding edge distros are the ones who actually do the QA and report bugs that get fixed upstream before the more conservative distros adopt...

    I think the real problem you have is how OpenSUSE configures btrfs.
    Btrfs snapshots are great for rolling release distros, because they can provide an easy way to undo changes in case an update...

    Phoronix doesn't have that much content that's developer-specific though - most of it seems geared towards power users who know what things like Qt, Wayland, systemd, etc. are, and understand what...

    This sums up my feelings on the Phoronix website.
  8. Context

    The libav-ffmpeg split was pretty messy. Here's some context for anyone who wasn't aware of it, based on a good summary by someone who was around during the split:

    ffmpeg project leader is...

    My guess is that it's a response to Project Ara.

    I was going to get a Jolla, but put it off once I heard about Ara. My guess is that there are a lot of people who are waiting for Ara, and possibly...

    Even cores and clock frequency are pretty meaningless when you start to take architecture differences into account. e.g. there are Atoms today that outperform decade-old Pentiums while running at a...

    IDEs are graphical interfaces - in general they can't replicate the full power of a terminal command without being extremely clunky.
    Most IDEs simply provide an interface for the most common...

    I used to have the same problem, where btrfs would accidentally corrupt its superblock - I believe the last time it occurred was about a year ago.
    The workaround is to only use it for RAID arrays...

    If he used different driver versions, I'm not sure we can conclude anything meaningful from the results, since there could just as easily be a regression in the newer driver.

    I'll second this - if there's an easy way to install it with journald support, I'll happily replace systemd with it. It's a great compromise for people who like the improvements systemd offers, but...

    I'm not so sure that those languages are aiming at the same fields. Go and D both have garbage collection - they seem to be focusing more on replacing Java/C++. Rust focuses on manual memory...

    Ah, you're right - I got the facts slightly wrong. logind was always a systemd project, but only in systemd v205 did the systemd (the init daemon) become a hard dependency. In that context, systemd...

    tldr; It's not the software, it's how it's managed.

    I use Systemd, but I understand why people are upset about it. It's not about the software at all, it's about the way the project is run....

    Won't happen - just because they create one package manager, doesn't mean the others disappear. Apt and Yum are considered to the main two standards, but you've still got all sorts of others, like...

    It looks like Lennart has finally embraced the idea of designing his own operating system.
    A constant theme throughout his work seems to be that he values the envisioned use case over the system's...

    No problem. Actually, a related issue I had recently was Chrome being horribly slow, since btrfs increased its cache's latency. Mounting ~/.cache/chromium as a tmpfs gave that a pretty big boost as...
