    Perhaps I misunderstand what JIT compilers do. As I understand they will compile code fragments to binary and then cache the translated binary code - so they do not repeatedly compile the same stuff...

    I do not disagree with you, Erendorn, that's the best way to go if it's within one's abilities.

    However, I worked for several years in a Physics department at a large university doing system...

    Consider the use the authors are making of the tool. Astrophysical simulations can run for days or weeks or even months. Amortize the cost of just-in-time-compiling the Python code over such run...

    Funny thing is, KDE project did that in KDE3: "konqueror --profile=filemanagement".

    Thanks Vim_User, for the explaination about systemd, and about the AMD.VN drivers.

    I just looked at the deps for systemd on an OpenSuSE 12.2 box. It requires a lot of stuff I would not expect of...

    Why is systemd bad/unwise/what-have-you?

    This question is not a dig, I simply don't know what the problem is.

    I've always liked Slackware becuase it used less init file, /etc/sysconfig, /etc/defaults (and so on, and on, and on) voodoo than do Debian and RH derived distros. With Slackware man was a man and a...

    With every new release Firefox looks more like Internet Explorer: can't hide the tab bar, no status bar, "paste & go", "paste & search", etc etc etc.

    What's next from Mozilla, an open source...
