  1. Would have been better to just start with GEMDOS....

    Would have been better to just start with GEMDOS. At least you'd have a prayer of software compatibility with *something* out there.
  2. If you don't need persistence then you don't need...

    If you don't need persistence then you don't need to be thinking about NVDIMMs. Totally irrelevant.
  3. Reserving RAM for a RAMdisk is a ridiculous waste...

    Reserving RAM for a RAMdisk is a ridiculous waste of memory; using RAM for the page cache always gets better utilization. You'd think people would have learned this after 30 years of PCs.

    If they...

    And so they should. A class action, so no single person has to take on Qualcomm all by themselves. And Qualcomm and Cyveillance should suffer criminal penalties, not just civil penalties from the...

    This is why I initially didn't use github for my own projects, and used gitorious instead (hosted in Norway).

    I've since used github for other things, when forking other projects that were already...

    (btw, re: RAM more is merrier - more RAM also means more power draw. So there are limits to what's appropriate in a small mobile device.)

    Likewise my Motorola Droid4, immediate predecessor of the Photon Q. The Nokia N900 looked attractive when I first heard of it, but time and technology have moved well past it.

    At this point I'm on...

    Mozilla should reverse this decision, and instead join the FSF in starting a class action lawsuit against Adobe and other purveyors of DRM.

    erendorn's statement is right on the money:

    OK, on topic, I'll be there, presenting a talk on Saturday "What's New in OpenLDAP" https://www.socallinuxexpo.org/scale12x/presentations/whats-new-openldap Pretty major stuff for database mavens.
  10. LLVM sucks

    Having recently spent some time trying to get lljvm working again, I can only echo the general sentiment. LLVM sucks. Every point release of the code introduces numerous incompatible API changes, and...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I just checked, and I've already got BIOS 214, which is the latest on the download site.

    So who here has a Trinity APU based laptop and does suspend/hibernate work for you? My Asus N56DP never comes back from suspend successfully, the display never turns on. (But the system is awake, you...

    Y'all can thank me later for kicking their butts into adding the MMIO code. Don't expect miracles, SQLite's read performance is dominated by its SQL parser, not by the actual I/O. This may noticeably...

    Having worked for proprietary software companies for a few years before founding my own company, I have to say no, there is no good reason to support proprietary software, ever. The primary reason...

    No, what's CLEAR is that you're making assumptions about someone without having any idea who you're talking to. (google could help you there...)

  17. You CLEARLY don't know what you're talking about,...

    You CLEARLY don't know what you're talking about, since you have no idea how much code I have or haven't written.

    You also seem to be laboring under multiple other false impressions.

    1) Not...

    "man this code in the kernel is so hard to understand, and it's just useless bloat. let's move it to userland" where it becomes even more fragile, unmaintainable, and bloated.

    sigh...

    Agreed, it's a POS. But if you profile a typical DBUS transaction you'll see that a ton of time is sucked up in the userland libraries, not just in the daemon itself. Developing a new message...

    Right, that's fine. It wasn't important to begin with. What matters is successful resume, and lowering the overall power consumption.
