    funny how people with no clue belittle Linus.

    funny how people use NT as an example for a microkernel

    funny how PHORONIX AGAIN fails to provide USEFULL links in the article. Like to the mailing list thread (on marc, if possible).

    Yes, I think Linus's point stands.

    FUSE is joking toys.

    All binary blobs GO FUCK YOURSELF

    End of story

    I don't know what's the psychology behind building a closed portion to an Open system. I guess it's just greed, which is the fundamental problem of humanity. You get whatever you can without giving back. again, GO FUCK YOURSELF

    If you want to sell closed programs, you might just target OSX and Windows and GTFO, otherwise it's just wrong, you are disobeying god's will and should rot and burn in hell.

    Umm........... what?

    Every FUSE filesystem I've mentioned is open source.

    The NTFS kernel driver written by Tuxera, which does not use FUSE, is closed source.

    How do you get from "FUSE is joking toys" to "All binary blobs [expletive]"?

    I think you're just throwing out random invective with no particular idea of what you're saying.

    Oops isn't something which forces you to hit the reset button afaik. Keep in mind there are Linux distributions which don't ship the latest X bits.

    While he's just talking then it's ok. I can't imagine FUSE going away soon, but probably nobody said it will be removed.

    Linus did NOT say that FUSE was useless and should go away. He said that EXT4 on FUSE would be stupid. NTFS on FUSE is fine though, since nobody in their right mind would make their root FS NTFS or use NTFS for anything besides some data retrieval from a corrupt windoze install.

    Why corrupt? Mine is perfectly fine. So is the NTFS disk of everyone who dual-boots Windows/Linux (which is A FREAKIN' LOT of people.)

    Why else would you want to access disk from wondoze unless its to recover data?

    I already said why in my post. Maybe you should try reading the stuff you quote.

    No you didn't, what you suggested makes no sense. There's no point.
