  1. Does the new GUI mean that you can't do the old...

    Does the new GUI mean that you can't do the old text-based administration, or does it make text-based administration harder? Some people have implemented decent schemes on top of the current...

    There was a switch a few years back from baselayout1 to baselayout2. If that's when they introduced OpenRC, then it looks to me as if that was mostly repackaging, not something fundamentally new. ...

    In the quoted article by Bdale, I read:
    "There are things about OpenRC that I find really appealing, but I agree
    that it seems too immature to even evaluate well, and thus I don't think
    it is a...

    This is one thing I'd like to understand, and get confirmation on. Is use of kdbus tied to systemd? In other words, can kdbus only be used on systemd systems? I see the message, "The userspace...

    Any more news on XWayland? It'll be some time (if ever) before everything I want to run, runs on Wayland. Until then XWayland will be the way to get the best of both world. Last I saw XWayland was...

    I'm sure they're not done patching the kernel, yet. I'm running RH6.4, and I'm sure I've seen post 3.0 features in that 2.6.32.xxx kernel.

    Are the interfaces between those 80 binaries clean and well documented? If I didn't like, for instance, the systemd logger could I simply RTFM, write my own systemd-enabled logger, and use it...
  8. From everything I've been able to glean, there is...

    From everything I've been able to glean, there is going to be no standalone Steamroller to upgrade today's Piledriver/Vishera. I would guess that the same will be true of Excavator. Plus from what...

    Is this a separate chip, or is it something embedded in some class of CPUs or North/South-bridges, and we haven't had access to it until now?

    If it's already embedded, what chips, what vintages?

    About 9 months back we joined the 21st century and bought a flat-panel TV, replacing our still-functioning (and alas still stored in the basement) CRT. I've been running MythTV for years using a...

    That presumes no significant sensitivity to alpha errors. I agree with you on defects, but alpha hits aren't defects.

    I know that store-in-trench DRAM cells, especially when the I/O device is in...

    Home machine, near-workstation class

    I've been thinking for a while about building another home machine, this time near-workstation class.

    As a matter of fact, my day job IS silicon design, and I want to be able to do that on this...

    Pardon me, I don't disagree with what you say, just in the way it seems to be getting commonly implemented. So please let me restate that every so slightly modified...

    This and that other "virtual guest OS" make me start to think about Xinu (Xinu Is Not Unix) that popped up years ago. Basically Xinu wasn't so much an OS as an "application hardware support layer" -...

    I've been looking at this issue, for either later this year or early next year. In my case, it's for a work-from-home machine. (There are other reasons for putting my own money into this, instead...

    Whatever happened to E18?

    To be perfectly honest, I have been underwhelmed by E17. I have it on one machine - it has occasional pauses and most of the extras never did work well. I'm prepared to...

    I presume this only resolves the code license issue - that patent license issues still remain, and that Samsung has licensed the patents - for their own use.

    First, thanks for the informative article. Some damage is done to Wayland by fanbois who call people like me Unix-tards, just because I've had several windows from other machines open all week on my...

    No, you missed my point, even though I stated more explicitly later. I agree that the kernel does stuff, but everything it does is in service of the applications. Once again, a "perfect" kernel...

    That type of claim might make sense if the Linux kernel were producing something - but it's not. The Linux kernel, or any other OS kernel, is overhead, plain and simple. It's something that enables...
