  1. I love ripping out dead code but I hate...

    I love ripping out dead code but I hate regressions even more. Change is great but it's gotta come with a full regression test suite.
  2. This is the basic concept behind the Hurd kernel....

    This is the basic concept behind the Hurd kernel. Every program is a driver. The semantics for how drivers talk to each other is well defined. The idea is that you can take the network driver and...
  3. The world of software development is littered...

    The world of software development is littered with dead projects that died, not because of their technical inferiority, but simply because they could not be maintained. This is why microsoft and...
  4. They are trying to recreate that "Sun-3"...

    They are trying to recreate that "Sun-3" experience because that was the last time anybody used it.
  5. The language is exposing inner parts of BSD to...

    The language is exposing inner parts of BSD to the programmer and so you have to count all of that code area into your analysis. You are going to be taking kernel function calls that previously only...

    If what you say is true then you are an idiot and a fool for wasting your precious time on this forum. If what you say were actually true then you would be making $200/hour and you would have NO...

    I'm curious, has anyone tried working with Qt and Wayland? This is all very interesting to me, but I don't want to jump in the water until it's at least marginally functional.
  8. It's gonna take a fresh new design to get this...

    It's gonna take a fresh new design to get this new driver to take off. Nobody is going to try to shoehorn it into their existing products, it needs to get inserted into the product cycle at a very...
  9. That's just an artifact of the technology cycles....

    That's just an artifact of the technology cycles. samsung is aggressively moving into arm and they are perfectly capable of making chips like this. they decide on a case by case basis whether it is...
  10. Yeah, NOW they do. When those contracts were...

    Yeah, NOW they do. When those contracts were signed, AMD was not in the picture. It was ATI management, and look what happened to them.
  11. It took 30 years to get X windows into the state...

    It took 30 years to get X windows into the state that it's in, you are just spouting foolish nonsense.

    If you are comparing the X developers to the Wayland developers, well you might be amused to...
  12. Is this 1985 or something? What is the point of...

    Is this 1985 or something? What is the point of interpreting? Why not just recompile? We all have gigahertz processors and we use SS drives. It's not like it takes hours to recompile a kernel...
  13. horrible

    language interpreters are "infinite bug sponges". You squeeze them and bugs pour out. You can squeeze and squeeze for years and you will get an unending stream of bugs. Don't believe me? Look at...

    In NetBSD the word "kernel" has lost its meaning.

    "Kernel" means "hard durable core"

    NetBSD has no "kernel" any more, it's soft mush all the way to the middle.

    maybe they can add a web browser and an email client while they are at it
  16. I stopped worrying about things like this at...

    I stopped worrying about things like this at about the same time I stopped using a boot floppy to start my linux box. I've got at least 8 gb of ram in all of my computers, I stopped thinking about...
  17. This is for databases. A database and a file...

    This is for databases. A database and a file system are pretty much the same thing, so putting a database inside a file is redundant. When you set up your database system, you don't format the data...

    I'm really tired of this web site and the losers who suck the air out of every discussion

    Whenever there's a story about progress in Linux, a whole bunch of neanderthals show up, talking about the...

    Wow, you REALLY aren't doing yourself any favors are you?

    "Nobody said that all code will or should be easy to understand"

    Yeah TELL US MORE about your strategy of leaving unmaintainable code...
  20. Hooray!

    doxygen isn't bloated. It has DEPENDENCIES. It's not the same thing at all. doxygen has a big job to do and it needs a lot of help.

    I know that my own frustration with doxygen lies not with its...
