    The GPL was created by Richard Stallman, President of the Free Software Foundation. His believe is: that the people who use the software should be free to use the software in anyway they like.

    Lots of filesystems

    Different people and organisations have different needs.

    An embedded device with flash-based storage doesn't need the same kind of features as a large database server with petabytes of databases...

    I don't really know a lot of that industry, but I always got the impression that Fab's with outdated processes don't go away, they are just re-purposed for 'lower-end' chips. Because the new low-end...

    Well, I might be wrong, but I think WebCL might not happen, as you can see even on the Wikipedia page it says Mozilla has choosen to support OpenGL ES 3.1 Compute Shaders....

    Canonical didn't want Wayland, because the Wayland developers didn't want to accept patches which added multi-touch (or maybe not in the way Canonical wanted).

    So Canonical eventually started over...

    That is exactly what I use it for.

    I have an ARM Chromebook, it also has no Intel Management Engine, which is a security risk and DRM:

    Servo from Mozilla is looking pretty good, the new Rust-build browser engine seems to get a lot better performance than the old C++ engines:

    Actually, asm.js* is now already faster than native in certain cases, look at the top graph:

  9. AOT is supported in Firefox

    Firefox already supports AOT, even before Android.

    They only use it for asm.js, because AOT for normal Javascript makes very little sense.

    There is no workaround for no SCTP-support in the OS. (Windows does not support SCTP)

    If you see a fallback to UDP, then that is the application doing that.

    Some Operating systems support SCTP...

    I believe this is also my thought.

    First I thought intel management engine was a crappy idea, a possible security issue, possibly a thread to free software supports, later I heared more about it....
  13. Hoping for others being benchmarked as well

    https://www.vultr.com/ is trying to be the digital ocean 'killer' by being cheaper and claiming to be faster, so that might be a good provider to compare.

    What would also be interresting is to...

  16. Have only played with it, but...

    I hear (Open)Suse includes btrfs and disables all the btrfs features that aren't production ready AND picks the right kernel for you.

    Basically, feature wise this means: no multi-device support...

    That isn't completely true.

    They do help the Linux kernel developers for the mobile Nvidia chip (which is where Nvidia doesn't have a large market share).
  18. Re-use the same instance ?

    Why not test with the old version and then copy all the files onto the same instance and reboot ?

    Couldn't you do something like that ? I know it will take some practice to get the procedure...
