    Did anyone find what's the license for it? It is all-rights-reserved only?

    It's not hype, it's looking at trends. Maybe it won't be Rust, maybe the main things it does get acquired by other languages. Also, lots of smaller languages have been filling niches and becoming...

    I believe bounds check happen only when you're using random access to the array. I.e. if you're iterating through the array, or filtering a collection, or converting a collection into another one, or...

    The use-case for these features, if I understand it correctly, is "kiosk mode", where the system is shipped ready for production and just needs to process information that is either fixed (like a...

    I get it for ARM devices, but for intel CPUs, I don't get it why BTRFS does not ship with LZO compression enabled by default, it seems the performance gains are large and the downsides are a bit more...
  7. I understand some of the frustration

    I kinda get some of the frustration of not having lots of choices. At the same time, I think, for infrastructure problems that we consider more or less solved (network, sound, video, ), it's nice to...

    Also, I believe Mozilla has some openings on Servo and/or Rust for those that would like to work with research (which is more and more a rarity these days).

    Rust seems to be an awesome language, I...

    I am confused, didn't Intel say they were disengaging from LLVM as a platform for OpenCL?

    I think over half computers coming out there are still hard-disk-based. At work I have an HDD and a cheap-ish SDD, but work cycles through a lot of disk space, so compilation and db work usually go...

    Actually, this is apparently motivated by performance, so I suppose end-users may notice it (or measure it).

    Sigh. The editor got the whole thing wrong, and no one bothered to read the linked article. Can't blame you guys, it's pretty hard usually to see where the info comes from. I wish Phoronix would...

    I think this is a good candidate to best bundle. It doesn't have any big names like Bastion, but all games look solid and fun. I already had SPAZ from Steam, but I still managed to get this one...

    Webmail has taken over the world

    The thing is that Mozilla products (with a few exceptions) are aimed at large masses. Thunderbird sat at the border of "masses" and "business". The masses has long ago migrated to webmail. ...

    Let's hope the quality is good enough we don't have to start calling it "Putrid Penguin"! If Kubuntu is of a decent quality, I may come back to using Ubuntu, I really miss the full repos and easy to...
