    Here: pulseaudio should be merged into mir. The next version of emacs will support pulsemir and will depend on systemd. It will be implemented using GNU C extensions and as such will not compile with...

    Actually OpenBSD and FreeBSD are forks from NetBSD, one targetted at flattering Theo's ego, the other at practicality.

    I guess I must be the only one in the world who really, really dislikes Qt :mad:

    I'm already using 3.16, does not help. I guess my next attempt will be with the new xorg and mesa from 14.10 (I'm almost inclined to upgrade to the beta to give it a go...)

    But seriously: I know...

    Not necessarily. AMD has at least a nice open source driver which already works well for a number of games and, moreovrer, which is improving steadily. I see the Catalyst driver as an interim fix...

    It does not (at least in my case - when I try to run it with the open source driver all I get is an error msg saying it could not determine opengl version or something like that).

    Metro Last Light does not work at all with Catalyst. Granted it may not be AMD's fault strictly speaking as 4A games seem to care about Nvidia only :(

    initramfs does that, only better. In single user mode you still need to be able to mount /bin and /sbin, and there is no reason really to assume that they would get trashed any less or more often...

    "Traditional UNIX paradigms"

    To me, the fact that systemd, together with other Lennart projects, do not follow "traditional UNIX paradigms" is what makes them necessary. I firmly believe that *nix holds Linux back. I see why...

    The problem is, the same thing could also be done with ZFS, which is both the anti-lennart and BSD fanboys' committee's darling. It's going to be difficult to explain why btrfs is a Trojan horse of...

    MS is developing RTFS whose design and planned features ressemble those of BTRFS. However in its present form (Windows 2012) it is nowhere near being stable or feature complete and I have no idea how...

    Actually the community flavour is fragmented into several sub-flavours. For example Linux ZFS is incompatible with other implementations if you enable SA xattrs, which is basically a requirement if...

    ZFS code is CDDL, using it on another OS can't change that. It is also CDDL in FreeBSD. However unlike the BSD license, which allows parts of the kernel to use a different license (CDDL), the GPL2...

    Yeah well. It quite possibly does have some patent issues, but so does helloworld.c :mad:

    That's not the case. The license forbids merging ZFS into the main kernel source, but that's all. Exactly like the nvidia driver you mention, nothing prevents you from shipping ZFS with a distro...

    It's good that you have options and ultimately everyone should be happy then. Purely out of curiosity, which UNIX are you using?

    ZFS, the Zealot's File System :)

    I like it, use it, it has many things going for it but the uncritical die-hard adoration some of its less informed users devote to it borders on the irrational. It...
