    I'd like to see some disk bench marks based on database transactions (postgres?), knowing that btrfs will probable be a bit slow. I would be nice to track progress in this area over time.

    Now it would be good to a benchmark using postresql and/or mysql/sqlite and/or apt.

    Yeah. I want to make a transfer, but I don't use bitcoins, paypal and all that. I mentioned earlier, why not add iDeal to the list of payment options, or put your (IBAN) bank account number, but got...

    As long as it doesn't affect Kubuntu I don't really care. I prefer that after my major updates I find nothing really changed. Or, minimally looks and feels the same.
