    True, but at least SCTP is flexible enough to be usable on systems that don't actually implement SCTP. For example, I think Windows' workaround is just abusing UDP to implement SCTP. Not ideal, but...

    What I saw was a post where "current" was in quotes and seemingly intended to have its literal meaning, like a "current release." Except, CURRENT is not that. It is nothing like Android's current...

    Yeah, because no one likes to run an unstable/untested version of FreeBSD with crazy amounts of debugging built-in. Talk about 10x slow experience with system console spam.

    Wow, that has closer to the legendary Thinkpad keyboard. I might consider that as my next laptop!

    Does the keyboard feel like the original Thinkpad keyboard?

    Yeah, it doesn't really make sense to me. I like clang, but I don't hate gcc.

    Maybe they're using some distribution that doesn't package bleeding edge GCC?

    Nice! And since Amazon sells things, its main source of income hopefully isn't personal information.

    TeamBlockFox,
    One of the underpinning assumptions in soft updates is that writes reach the disk in order. That way fsck can check for very specific patterns when repairing a file system. But this...

    Pawlerson,
    Don't mention soft updates. It's a nice idea, but soft updates don't work reliably since the disk itself can re-order writes. And needing any sort of fsck (soft updates allows for fsck on...

    I know you're a troll and all, but I'll answer that for everyone else's benefit.

    There are three branches: RELEASE, STABLE and CURRENT.

    I guess FreeBSD is already close to perfect for their applications. Or, the "handful" of commits are actually individually large commits.

    But my guess is that FreeBSD is already perfect.

    The myth is that companies that use FreeBSD don't contribute back to FreeBSD because it's BSDL. The commit log shows otherwise.

    Well, the numbers come from the raw commit data. The committers sometimes wrote "Google", "Google, Inc" or "Google Inc." This is why Yahoo doesn't appear in the list even though Yahoo collectively...
