    ZFS code is CDDL, using it on another OS can't change that. It is also CDDL in FreeBSD. However unlike the BSD license, which allows parts of the kernel to use a different license (CDDL), the GPL2...

    Yeah well. It quite possibly does have some patent issues, but so does helloworld.c :mad:
  3. That's not the case. The license forbids merging...

    That's not the case. The license forbids merging ZFS into the main kernel source, but that's all. Exactly like the nvidia driver you mention, nothing prevents you from shipping ZFS with a distro...

    It's good that you have options and ultimately everyone should be happy then. Purely out of curiosity, which UNIX are you using?

    ZFS, the Zealot's File System :)

    I like it, use it, it has many things going for it but the uncritical die-hard adoration some of its less informed users devote to it borders on the irrational. It...

    If only it used just sockets! Dbus also runs as a process, imagine that!
  7. Rootless?

    Sorry, I'm confused as to the meaning of "rootless X": does it mean that X runs as an unprivileged process, or that it does not manage the whole screen?

    The "fragmentation" issue is always made to sound much worse than it really is. The relevant toolkits (e.g. Gtk and Qt) are the same across all distros and desktops. So are dbus, xdg, udev and...

    I agree, we don't need another player, esp. since Gnome Music is being developed with a touch-oriented UI too. I'm using rhythmbox and am mostly happy with it. I would just like it to have a built-in...

    Ah well

    The zealots who hated Ubuntu because it had upstart will now be able to hate it because it uses systemd.

    Without trying to feed the troll, I must say I'm skeptical as well. Integrating a programming language interpreter in a kernel seems like a Bad Idea(tm) that can only lead to bloat.

    I think the mount option is deprecated, btrfs now automatically switches to that mode when it sees a SSD. Also AFAIK it's not supposed to make a performance difference, the purpose is rather to...

    I believe that Clang can generate faster code than the GCC 4.2 series that FreeBSD has used so far so no, it won't result in a slower system, it will be a system that runs somewhat faster, builds...

    Hmmm... One would think that that's precisely why programmers like to use languages that let them focus more on "real world" problems rather than one the machine's low-level technical details, but...

    Send/receive is great, but what happened to raid 5/6 that were due for 3.6?

    From the screenshots it seems that it does not support the Global Menu like in Ubuntu.

    Not quite. While I agree that overally BSD has few advantages over Linux, here are still niches where it shines. For firewalling, for example, BSD's packetfilter is much better and easier to use than...
