    Unfortunately I don't even know if you can still call this software 'Opera'. It's certainly nothing like the Opera I used from version 9 to 12.

    I've switched to Seamonkey with various plugins...

    What delightful words from some delightful young men.



    That blog is a cesspool of bigotry, homophobia, racism, sexism, and utter stupidity. I would refuse to use it for toilet paper, let alone...

    The fact that the FreeBSD Foundation receives donations from very big companies with huge market share in their sectors and that FreeBSD work is regularly sponsored by big names like NetFlix and...

    The Linux compatibility layer on FreeBSD provides the interfaces consumed by glibc included in CentOS 6, which is about 3 years old. Every OpenBSD developer I know of runs OpenBSD on their...

    But I'm afraid it's already happened. Read the article and check the repo at https://uglyman.kremlin.cc/gitweb/gitweb.cgi?p=systembsd.git

    Please, do tell me what features are missing. Also, specify which BSD. FreeBSD? OpenBSD? NetBSD?

    As for 'VMWare on their MacBook Pros' - some FreeBSD developers do so, but many of them dogfood. As...

    FreeBSD and NetBSD have ZFS, upon which btrfs was modeled, and therefore have all these features (snapshots, deduplication, Copy-on-Write, send/recv) that would be needed, making implementation...
  8. First of all, Solaris' engineers specifically...

    First of all, Solaris' engineers specifically asked that ZFS be made GPL incompatible to prevent Linux from siphoning it up and turning it into a part of the Linux kernel where it would rot and...

    Curious to note that you, endman, and Pawlerson all returned at the same time. I wonder why that might be.

    But if you've been running LibreSSL Portable already, when it's clear that this is...

    Hello Pawlerson!

    I'm afraid that evaluating the share of operating systems in the server sphere is not simple. So no one here has any legs to stand on for making definitive statements. But if...

    You raise some valid points. I'm a FreeBSD user, and I've been investigating systemd lately. I retain a lot of criticisms of it, though, which I'll elaborate upon at some time.

    What I find...
  12. In what way does systemd seperate executable code...

    In what way does systemd seperate executable code from daemon configuration that isn't comparable to /etc/rc.conf or /etc/conf.d/whatever vs /etc/rc.d/whatever? Now, I'm not a tremendous fan of...

    This cannot be true, otherwise the nViDiA and FGLRX modules would be illegal.

    The same way everyone else (FreeBSD, NetBSD, certain other Linux distros) circumvents it: you build it as a kernel module.

    This claim has only ever been made by a very strange blog which makes a variety of remarkable assertions - none of which are backed up with any citation - and has been known to urge people to kill...

    1. A bit more code, yes. But I would say the maintenance burden is lesser. The implementation is a bit more work - this is a trade off for simpler maintenance.
    2. Well, any more code has the...

    I maintain a branch of the Runit process supervision system, to which I've been enhancing it to allow it to act as a complete service manager that can replace rc.d/init.d. PID 1 is 350 lines of code....

    Linus Torvalds and the Linux kernel developers do not care. In fact, so little do they care about your 'proof' that they added strlcpy() to the Linux kernel over 11 years ago.

    Actually it would have happened in exactly the same way.

    Apple release the source code to their XNU kernel - but porting it to FreeBSD isn't as easy as you think. Though the two share a lot of...

    Probably none. ASLR isn't really a big deal. It wouldn't have saved you from Heartbleed.
