    Meh. A curiosity, nothing more. As Linux users who might occasionally need to run some pesky legacy windows app, this is pretty much the inverse of what we need.

    Well, lxqt is a lightweight QT-based DE, sort of like KDE on a diet.

    In Soviet Union, Linux 3.20 brings improvements to KVM!

    There seems to be some strong feelings on both sides. I loved perl and used it heavily in the 90s. It was the unix philosophy boiled down to a language. But it's been many years since perl 5 came...

    Could this be the breakthrough that finally pulls perl back into relevance in the IT community? Or is it too little, too late, perl's niche irrevocably taken by the likes of ruby and python? Stay...

    That's good to hear - I can't help but think that, if possible, a blog post documenting the steps you took to achieve that, in a cookbook fashion, would be a great benefit to the community.

    Actually, the scuttlebutt I've heard is the plans for systemd include a microkernel replacement for vmlinuz, which will make the linux kernel "optional"
  10. Um, nope. Can you give an example?

    Um, nope. Can you give an example?

    Obviously you've never heard of ksplice - but no matter. If you ever have the opportunity to work in a production environment, you'll find that rebooting every time there's a kernel update available,...

    Supercomputers as toys - OK, well I'll give you that one.

    But if we're talking about what works in practice, let's take a look at amazon.com. My first meaningful interaction with amazon was in...

    LOL - "non-toy" operating systems. That's hilarious. Almost as hilarious as all the OSX and BSD systems on the top 500 supercomputer list. Oh wait - damn! There are none.
  14. I'll certainly be interested to see that. I just...

    I'll certainly be interested to see that. I just tried gnome on wayland on a fedora 21 netbook, and found it not yet quite usable. When I chose the gnome on wayland session in the login manager, it...

    Very interesting presentation. After watching it, you almost wonder how X even works, and immediately want to try wayland... but then... oops, there is nothing working yet. Well, there's xwayland,...

    In looking at how Linux performs against microsoft windows here, it's clear that Xorg can't be all that bad. So I have to ask myself, "Why is it again, that people say Xorg is hopelessly bloated and...

    Yep, it's looking good ATM. Some may say the "heyday" of X is over, but it's the only game in town. (Sure, there is the hope that someday, somehow, full wayland support will materialize, but so there...

    Oh Dear, I have a stalker - not sure whether to be annoyed, or just creeped out. At any rate, if you're going to try to play "gotcha", you ought to work on your reading comprehension, and make sure...

    As always, FPS doesn't tell the whole story. I had a Dell GX 270 desktop with an older nvidia card, and had always used the nvidia binary blob, which worked, and enabled decent 3D performance....

    This is great news. Virtuozzo has long been the undisputed leader in Linux containers, with features that completely outclass any other implementation e.g. solaris zones. The openvz folks are...
