  1. Language performance tests would be nice to have.

    I would love to see performance of several different languages doing several different algorithms (integers, strings, floating point, IO, network?) on several different CPUs/Platforms (different...
  2. Programming language performance- Python is slow

    Stock Python interpreter is very slow. Jython is slow, PyPy is a bit better. I never tried .NET based IronPython as I'm on Linux. I've seen fist-hand Python performance is ~10x-30x slower than same...
  3. When do we get Coreboot AMD Laptops?

    I wish there were laptops on the market that had AMD APUs and maybe dGPUs, and that would run Coreboot...

    Hell, I wish there were more laptops with AMD APUs in general. There is a bunch of cheap...

    Happy birthday!

    This brings back memories. Slack was the 1st Linux Distro I've used. I switched to Debian soon afterwards, but Slack was still first...

    Freedom is Important and Needed.

    Ok, I didn't think I'll have to enter into this discussion.

    1. Stallman has been right time and time again. A lot of freedoms we used to take for granted have been striped away by the governments...
  6. Stupid work PC

    I mostly run Linux at home, on both home server and a laptop. I have to run Windows at work due to idiotic IT policies. I have a Debian Linux VM running on same Windows PC where I do most of...
  7. Debian still hasn't enabled VDPAU either

    I wonder if Ubuntu is really waiting for Debian? Bug here:

    https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=656719

    I'm running Debian Sid packages built with patches in that bug report, and...
  8. Damn American NSA to hell!

    How can closed pieces of silicon be trusted to calculate crypto functions correctly without any degradation in security these days? It's not like you can open up the code for them and verify what's...

    Debian Sid and Arch!

    Cool benchmarks. Can't wait to see them. I've used Debian Sid for last 10 years on my desktop, it would be very interesting to see some continuous metrics on that distro...

    "Production" steambox :)

    It's kinda funny refering to a gaming box as a "production" machine :)
  11. Why the Spotify hate?

    I'd love to see Debian used in commercial enterprise data centers more. No matter if they contribute much back or not- it's still good:

    * They have a bunch of system admins who are or will become...

    Long road ahead for AMD APUs on Linux

    I'm a long time AMD user, but I'm disappointed.

    1. 90W TDP Kaveri APUs seem useless. They are not much faster than Richland. On the other hand, 65 or 45W TDP Kaver APUs seem a sweet spot- they...
  13. Quick PRIME howto

    Hi,

    First, you need PRIME when you have 2 GPUs and a single graphical output. If you have a desktop, you probably have video output on the motherboard, and a separate video output on your discrete...
  14. AMD Radeon support has improved A LOT over last couple of years...

    And I just got PRIME working on my Debian laptop which has an AMD APU and an r600 discrete GPU. All full open-source drivers, and I can run Linux games I want, and quite a few non-Linux games over...
  15. Is it extensibe at all?

    Hmm, it looks like a nice device. However, can it at all be extended?

    For example, would it be possible to add more RAM without having to solder anything? Is the hard drive mSATA and can it be...
  16. Good job

    Relevant problem, good research, useful information. Everything I expected!

    Facepalm- please measure LATENCY for Liquorix

    I thought we already went through this. Having Liquorix benchmarks without measuring LATENCY is quite meaningless.

    Regarding Liquorix being useful or not, it has Debian packages and usually I get...
  18. Seconded, please test spinning rust drives as well

    What is more, it would be interesting to see which filesystems perform well on SSDs, and which ones perform well on old spinning HDDs. Different filesystems- different optimization topics. Also,...
  19. Please mesure LATENCY when benchmarking Liquorix!

    Hi,

    All these benchmarks show is that there are no major performance regressions in Liquorix.

    This kernel is LATENCY optimized. It is supposed to have better LATENCY than other kernels....
  20. Château Premstätten

    Taos got bought out by Austrian Microsystems (AMS AG) in 2011. And AMS have their HQ in a chateau built in 1164. So cool. If I had an electronic company, I'd have HQ in an old Chateau as well :)
