    Looking through that original email thread, even the proponents are saying it's going to result in negligble speed benefits, mostly just some size reduction, largely dependent on how limited your...

    I think this is being missed in all the fuss. This is such a basic and simple step in getting software from 'hobby code' to 'production worthy'. Given the scope of the changes, everything needs to...

    When I first run pts/gaming it grabs around 65 32bit packages. It also goes on to try and run etqw.x86 instead of etqw, which required me to go off and grab libsdl1.2debian:i386 and libjpeg62:i386...

    Is there a reason you're insisting on 32bit versions of libraries & programs? It's resulting in a lot of additional package installations that don't seem entirely necessary. Besides which I think...

    "without severe incompatibilities"

    Seriously? So there are non-severe incompatibilities (curious what the distinction is?). Please tell me this isn't as bad as the fun transition from 1.8->1.9?...

    The standard benchmarking tools aren't really idea for Hybrid drive testing anyway. The theory is that the drive best figures out what gets accessed most often and caches that in SSD. When you're...

    There has been some discussion recently about the write latency dealing with SSDs, it might be interesting to expand out your benchmark tests to include such data (if possible?)

    What are the negatives of doing this? Does it result in a slower library?

    Fast performance is all well and good, but we've been there before with various file systems in even the fairly recent past. It was only a couple of years ago that it was revealed one of the reasons...

    Well done, and thank you.

    So stupid BIOS inconsistencies cause problems yet again. This is absurd. There has to be a better, more standardised way to do things.

    Well, that's slightly annoying. I use TweetDeck for twitter and Facebook which is an Adobe Air program. It's still head and shoulders above any of the other clients I've used. I guess that means...

    Presumably even if the CUDA option ends up being a bit of a bust, the work on parallelising the kernel could have good payoffs in the non-gpu kernel given the ever increasing core counts of systems.

    Common wisdom in the sysadmin field about 6 years ago or so was that HT was a real mixed bag. At the time the HT thread shared the CPU cache with the main thread. For highly repetitive work on the...

    Congratulations, I'm sure a significant amount of work has gone into this, and it certainly looks very useful.

    Wonder what the change was on the 13th that caused such a spiked improvement.
