  1. And at the same time, it is the biggest problem....

    And at the same time, it is the biggest problem. You forego the possibility to use different components to do the job.

    I mean, seriously, NTP support as part of the init system?!
  2. Unfortunately, not true. The prime example of...

    Unfortunately, not true. The prime example of that is udev.

    I happen to be using Gentoo, so I'm alright, but beyond Gentoo, who else still supports and will support non-systemd installations?
  3. Well, the extent of APIs used by most OS X games...

    Well, the extent of APIs used by most OS X games is quite low. The most critical path (OpenGL) needs no translation, so no risk of performance penalties there.
  4. One of the new endeavors I have decided to start...

    One of the new endeavors I have decided to start is darling-appkit as a QtQuick-based replacement for gnustep-gui. Before you call me crazy, there are a few things to consider:

    1) Darling is...

    I'll answer all of your points:

    ad microkernel: OS X's kernel (XNU) is based on Mach, but I wouldn't call it a microkernel. Apps don't usually even touch the Mach API.
    ad different I/O stack:...

    Hope seems lost in Phoronix's reporting credibility. Phoronix makes assumptions without getting in touch with the author (me).

    The fact is that the loader is in a good shape, dmg loading works and...

    Why would you do that? It's not intended to be used that way.
  8. The question is: why would I want that?

    Just FYI, most of the work on Darling is currently being done outside of the main Git repository - e.g. in gnustep-corebase, gnustep-base or darling-dmg (FUSE module to mount .dmg files on Linux).

    CPU tests running slower on Linux is absolute bullshit. Sorry. What on earth would be slowing them?

    The same thing about RAM being used for caching and later released to apps applies to Linux as...

    You're seriously kidding, right? Compared to what? Windows?

    I'm not surprised, because even I'm not so active on Steam any more.

    And the reason? I bought most of the good games in February, now it's just indie projects of greatly varying quality.

    Intel's HW is not powerful enough for any serious games. Also, their drivers are open source, but pretty crappy. Compare their performance to their Windows counterpart.

    Also, Intel's drivers suck...

    Hi, I exchanged a mail or two with the author of Ringo.

    But he didn't really get far. He took maloader's code like me and then added a couple of other projects into the mix. But the idea of...

    Yeah, that's what I intend to do now, but reporting bugs without the source code is slightly complicated when you always have to rule out a bug on your part :D That being said, the GNUstep guys have...

    You're right. But then you see how slow their backends are, how it still doesn't even support short language names when looking for resources ("en" instead of "English"; "en" is default in original...

    Oh yes, I've seen Magenta and the Mach ports were the only feature that I found interesting in that project. Because the rest is just Apple's code with minimal added value.

    LGPL introduces a loophole that enables others to escape this restriction by linking with your LGPL code dynamically (plus other possible ways).

    Rosetta? Well, you could use qemu-ppc with Darling & friends crosscompiled for PPC. The question is how fast it would be, because its direct relative called qemu-system-ppc is either very slow or...
