  1. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. The app installation problem was solved in 2006: it's called KLIK

    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,...

    Agree! Although BTRFS is terrible in the Compile Bench - Initial Create benchmark, which I guess is not too bad from a user's perspective because you rarely have to create files in daily desktop...

    I had the same question. What's the projected timeline for GNOME running on pure Wayland (no X whatsoever)?

    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

    BTRFS apologists love to make excuses as to why BTRFS is slower than EXT4 by claiming that the more numerous features of BTRFS invariably yield slower function on bread-and-butter filesystem tasks....

    Steal from *BSD?

    Why not use BSD-licensed code from one of the BSDs that support ARM?
  15. BTRFS is competitive

    I fully expected to have a reason to bash BTRFS's poor performance, due to how slow it presented itself in previous benchmarks. But I'm pleasantly surprised to note that BTRFS beat EXT4 in several...

    BTRFS sucks

    Sorry to say it, but what's all the excitement about BTRFS when it sucks so much compared to EXT4. Why would any desktop Linux user in their right mind chose BTRFS???

    Fold into radeon driver

    What should have happened was to fold the r128 driver into the radeon driver, bringing a whole bunch of benefits at once. Alex Deucher had a whole tree dedicated to this, which to my knowledge was...

    BTRFS worse than EXT4 for both speed and reliability

    OK, so let's talk reliability. As it stands, BTRFS is much more prone to corruption and gradual degradation of speed and even available free spance than EXT4. Just look at all the reports of people...

    Why don't distros install GNASH or Llightspark by default???

    Ubuntu, Fedora and Suse pride themselves on having only FOSS software. But why don't they include GNASH and/or LIGHTSPARK in their default installations? They don't have to install US-patented...
