    Look, son, you oughta calm down a bit before you reply. It's clear that no one can have a reasonable conversation with you when you're mad.

    I'm sorry I wasn't clear enough and didn't agree with...

    Can you point out to me the official documentation from ArchLinux that outlines all those points as being hard requirements?

  3. Tiny is tiny

    I suspect that "tiny" and "marvelous new features" are, to some extent, going to be mutually exclusive. You can't have a rapidly expanding feature set and still be tiny. Also, it's filling a niche...

    Because back then everyone was holding on to the dream that Adobe would pull its head out and implement Flash for something other than x86+Windows. It was only recently that Adobe finally had the...

    OMG teh Mono is evil!

    So is Mono just as evil as a part of Wine as it is as a part of anything else? Or is Mono OK if it's part of Wine?

    Remember now, the freetards have told me that the only part of Windows that is...

    And when someone gives an absolute that it does exist? Phoronix has a burden that it's not living up to with this article. That graph makes UFO sightings look like sound science in comparison. ...

    It's no worse than Phoronix insisting that it does exist while at the same time being unable to show it. This article in particular is not conclusive on the point yet it carries the title "The Linux...
  8. Useless

    The first graph is completely meaningless because it seems that there are different numbers of idle samples to busy samples between kernels.

    Of course if you have more idle points than busy points...

    That's the whole point of using git bisect. You take a large set of commits, split them in half, test, repeat. Each time you test you effectively eliminate half the commits.

    I don't know the details but, distcc has been used to compile the Linux kernel. If you must run the build process from the laptop then at least you could leverage the processing power of other...

    And for god's sake we need a full Emacs editor for editing the boot line.

    I agree full-heartedly. However, until suspend/hibernate becomes reliable, it's just not an option. It's nice to have a backup option (fast booting) even if it's not as good.

    Look at Windows......

    FIFY.

    I boot once a day, because I turn my computer off at night. Yeah I know there's the half baked and very often broken suspend/hibernate support. I've spent enough time trying to get it to...

    Citations please. What do you really know about "typical end-users" and where do you know it from? How do you know how many are running binary drivers? Since you have such accurate data, go ahead...

    You clearly have a firm grasp of how open source development works. :rolleyes:

    What's interesting is if the exploits still work a decade later. If the code base is active (ie sees a lot of change) then the probability that such back doors get broken by accident would go up...

    The kernel doesn't stand by itself. If the kernel only cared about working with the kernel there would be no external interfaces at all. APIs and ABIs exist so that code OUTSIDE the kernel can use...

    LOL, ABIs are evil... that's why we recompile EVERYTHING when we get a new kernel? The reason we can update our kernels without recompiling everything that calls it is because we have somewhat...
