    I've been running F22 on my Dell m3800 for a bit and I thought Wayland was working pretty well. It was very smooth for me and used less CPU when doing things like dragging and resizing windows.

    Like how the 64-bit programs are in C:\Windows\System32 and the 32-bit programs are in C:\Windows\SysWOW64

    See this: http://techreport.com/review/27909/the-ssd-endurance-experiment-theyre-all-dead

    Even consumer level SSDs turn out to be much tougher than anyone gave them credit for.

    I think you are right. Vulkan and other new APIs are all about getting down to the lowest possible abstraction and that includes multiple cards. Users of the GPU(s) will write their own software to...

    Because AI researchers are not experts on building, testing and installing the OS?

    What size power supply is needed for this? How many amps on each rail? Does the motherboard have enough PCIe...

    Unless someone builds a CPU with a zero-cost security transistion, micro-kernels will always be slower than monolithic kernels, and will therefore always be second-class. Performance is always...

    The nice thing about ridiculously big hardware like this is that you don't need to know as much about solving the problem. You can just throw ALL of the data into the system and let it figure out...

    Oh I love those angular sites. I hit one from a search link, see absolute garbage because I use NoScript, so I hit back and try another link until I find something that you know, actually uses HTML.

    This will be great. If it works.

    Based on history though, vendors will manage to find every way to interpret the specification except the correct one. It will almost sort of work for Windows but...

    GNU C++ requires linking to the same version or newer of libstdc++. Which means that if you build software with a newer compiler, you require all of your users to install a newer libstdc++ too. This...

    A new reliable stream protocol has the same problem IPv6 is having. Getting people to support it.

    It would be like the bad old days when you needed to install Trumpet Winsock in order to use the...

    Not sure about screen-casting (I thought the compositor did that if it wanted to?) but timing is done by the Presentation API.

    Phoronix even covered it at...

    OK, so you can see why I am confused by what you say. First you want only the basic drivers in the kernel, and the sound system in user space.

    What you seem to be missing here is that PulseAudio...

    Are you sure that you know what ALSA does? From what you wrote here, I don't think that you understand it...

    I am a big PostgreSQL fan. All of that can be done in PostgreSQL 9.2+ with far more reliability. It used to be faster too, but I haven't run any tests against the new version of Mongo.

    REAL databases like PostgreSQL are better than these NoSQL databases any day. The only thing that they don't do is sharding and horizontal scaling.

    And if you want to treat a SQL database as a key...

    In that case they should also be safe, because software in the 80s wasn't using DNS. Instead of using DNS they'd be using an /etc/hosts file containing every IP on the entire Internet. It used to be...

    I agree. And that Jalopnik site? I poked around it with the Firefox dev tools. Did you know it sends off a background Javascript ping as the mouse moves over elements of the page? Kind of creepy. I...

    I am pretty sure that this depends on your version of fdisk. I had thought the Fedora and RHEL versions had been modified to support GPT. I would have to check.
