    Gnome upset me so much. In the 2.x days it worked fine with 150 dpi. Their ridiculous nonsense with forcing 96 dpi didn't do anything useful and it is incredibly hard to turn off.

    I understand removing it for programs but it was useful for shared objects. Beyond hidden symbols, it seemed to optimize more aggressively. Although I did crash GCC 4.2 - 4.6 rather often trying to...

    From MSDN
    "A feature level does not imply performance, only functionality. Performance is dependent on hardware implementation."


    So, that sounds exactlly like the same thing as implementing...

    Well, Firefox built for Windows needs a 64-bit build system because the linking (which includes LTO) takes more than 3GB of RAM. That's with Microsoft's compiler, but I bet GCC will have similar...

    Says the expert.

    I've still got a laptop hard drive that I stuck in an external case which is Reiser4 formatted. Works fine, never gave me a problem.

    If only people had been able to develop on...

    And how do you expect to get people to follow these "proper standards?"

    It didn't work for Netscape and it didn't work for Microsoft. It apparently isn't working for Google either.

    Unity builds speed up build time? Since when?

    My last experience building KDE and Qt anything was with Gentoo in 2009. Building with O3, GCC seemed to have geometrically increasing RAM...
  9. Yes. And even if someone wants to use socket...

    Yes.

    And even if someone wants to use socket activation or the notify calls, those can be implemented without systemd libraries. You can take their code (its a single .c file) and drop it into...

    The point is that you have the ABILITY to use better methods and the hacks are smaller. The hacks are now restricted to detecting startup.

    You can get rid of all the old hacks to detect service...

    You seem to be asking systemd to fix "unreliable mechanisms like PID files" without changing anything. "Fix it without changing anything" is never going to work.

    systemd DID fix it, but had to add...

    You can easily hack in fixes if you have problems. In my opinion none of these are the RIGHT way to fix things but you can make them work.

    Use a ExecStartPost=/bin/sleep 3

    Or...

    When I ran Gentoo on my laptop in 2008 I ran with a custom monolithic kernel. I used one of those scripts to detect your hardware and set the kernel config to start with, then I customized it from...

    Everything in /proc is required to be documented. /sys/kernel/debug can have undocumented stuff.

    It isn't that difficult or even very slow to parse the files.

    From a developer point of view it...

    LTO in GCC is supported just as well as anything else. Or do you consider code such as the automatic vectorization optimizer or hidden symbol support "rudely patched in?"

    It takes some time for...

    You could check out the Razor designs. They look a little Appley but that's just because they are thin. The keyboard and control design is unique.

    Alienware laptops have a sort of unique look as...

    That was an example and yes, the anti-spam library is fictional. The real library does something else.

    Did anybody claim that?

    But pick a less obsolete example like MIPS. (And yes, I know LLVM supports MIPS.) You write something like a nifty library to detect spam in emails and you target i386. It...

    Some people seem to think that if software is more than a few years old and works, then it must be a relic, legacy, ancient boring stuff that must be replaced.

    This results in Perl being replaced...

    I run Linux at work for software development and Windows at home, mostly for the games. But when I browse Phoronix from home, it will show up as a Windows browser.
