    I can only presume he's confusing Linux with Windows, which used to swap out my web browser when I copied a 2GB file from one disk to another so it could try to cache the file in RAM. Linux doesn't...

    Yeah, this was one of the first things I turned off on Ubuntu. I absolutely hate them. I particularly hate this absurd idea of trying to 'save' horizontal space when my display is nearly twice as...

    NeWS apps were hard to write and dog-slow. Xview apps were almost trivially easy to write, and performed well, given the limitations of the hardware of the time.

    Yeah, it was the best technology...
  4. Yes, of course, it's not because systemd is...

    Yes, of course, it's not because systemd is becoming increasingly bloated and hard to remove due to hooks into many different projects, but because Users Hate Change!

    It's this kind of attitude...
  5. No, we don't need to support static linking....

    No, we don't need to support static linking. Static linking is for idiots, because it means the only way to fix bugs in a common library is to wait for a new version of your app.

    Hey, guess what?...

    The great thing about Windows is that zlib is a DLL... but every piece of crap program has its own copy.

    I lost count of the number of zlib.dlls I had to replace on my old XP machine when there...

    However, SSDs perform compression internally to reduce flash writes, so you may gain a bit more disk space, but you lose drive lifespan as it has to write more data to the flash.

    Consoles?

    Are those the things casual gamers used to play on before they moved to tablet and phone games? Didn't realize they were still around.
  9. In my experience, most people don't want to use...

    In my experience, most people don't want to use Red Hat in production systems until at least the .1 release, so I don't see any reason to rush to 7 unless you need some new feature that's not in 6.

    Database server. I think it's 48TB after the RAID takes out a few disks.
  11. Some of our systems use XFS on RHEL6, solely...

    Some of our systems use XFS on RHEL6, solely because EXT4 on RHEL6 is limited to 16TB, and it has a marked tendency to truncate files to zero bytes when there's a power failure. So I'm surprised by...
  12. Just recreating the partition table with the same...

    Just recreating the partition table with the same settings should work. So long as you know what those settings were.

    Certainly I've done that on a hard drive, I presume the SSD wouldn't have done...

    I'm sure Google are really worried about their, what, 80%? 90%? marketshare on mobile devices around the world.

    Personally, I've considered buying some apps on Android, but, every time I think...
  14. Don't worry. In another few years everyone will...

    Don't worry. In another few years everyone will be saying 'you know, I've got this great idea. Why don't we all implement the same API on all our hardware, so software can easily be ported from one...

    And this kind of attitude is precisely the reason so many people are p-ed off with systemd.

    BTW, you do realize you have a buffer overflow in that code, don't you?

    Feminists claim the Evil Patriachy created a world where women were forced to marry men so those men could control and abuse them.

    Hands up all those men who, if they were able to create the...

    Intel has never worried much about chipset compatibility, because hardly anyone ever upgrades a CPU. 99+% of computer users buy a new computer when their old one is too slow.

    (citation needed)

    Most companies I worked for in the UK would hire a female developer over a similarly qualified male developer, becuase they already had plenty of those. They just rarely received...

    If you're writing code that's supposed to be secure and robust, you don't trust external data.

    Ever.

    The spec looks crazy, but any programmer working on this kind of code should know to...
