    No. The use of "hypervisor" is totally misleading. They're developing a container that runs "Linux on Linux." (Says those exact words on their LXD page.) This is not a hypervisor at all, just a very...

    There are two required elements to any volunteer project: skill, and motivation. So far I don't see strong enough motivation to create Yet Another init system. The people who could easily write a...

    On 32 bit systems it can do dynamic mmap'ing of relevant data pages. Your concern here is a non-issue.

    More importantly, their NIH led them to create a solution (journald) that is broken by design - it is inherently vulnerable to crash corruption, and as the linked bug report shows, the corruptions...

    Good to see that journald was dropped from uselessd. journald is a steaming pile of cr@p. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/article/20140924071300-170035-why-you-cannot-trust-lennart-poettering-systemd

    Why you cannot trust Lennart Poettering / systemd

    I stayed out of the debate before, but now I've stumbled across a concrete reason to avoid all of this stuff.

    PS: Down with closed-source BIOS! Mobo manufacturers should ship with coreboot and provide source code.

    Only if the mobo manufacturers give you an ARM version of the BIOS ROM too. Otherwise pin-compatibility won't mean much to anyone.

    Would have been better to just start with GEMDOS. At least you'd have a prayer of software compatibility with *something* out there.

    If you don't need persistence then you don't need to be thinking about NVDIMMs. Totally irrelevant.

    Reserving RAM for a RAMdisk is a ridiculous waste of memory; using RAM for the page cache always gets better utilization. You'd think people would have learned this after 30 years of PCs.

    If they...

    And so they should. A class action, so no single person has to take on Qualcomm all by themselves. And Qualcomm and Cyveillance should suffer criminal penalties, not just civil penalties from the...

    This is why I initially didn't use github for my own projects, and used gitorious instead (hosted in Norway).

    I've since used github for other things, when forking other projects that were already...

    (btw, re: RAM more is merrier - more RAM also means more power draw. So there are limits to what's appropriate in a small mobile device.)

    Likewise my Motorola Droid4, immediate predecessor of the Photon Q. The Nokia N900 looked attractive when I first heard of it, but time and technology have moved well past it.

    Mozilla should reverse this decision, and instead join the FSF in starting a class action lawsuit against Adobe and other purveyors of DRM.

    Having recently spent some time trying to get lljvm working again, I can only echo the general sentiment. LLVM sucks. Every point release of the code introduces numerous incompatible API changes, and...
