    there is a glaring omission of advanced zfs replacement in your list: btrfs

    only for uneducated

    you don't have to decide it every time. just never use raid controllers

      yep, windows api is so stable that creative x-fi customers were left without sound for several years after vista release. what a brain-washed imbecile

      well, linux is the os for which most apps are developed (lookup android)
      so, who cares what some uneducated idiot did?

        that one would be stupid as a brick, because firefox is included everywhere including linux. the only one not included everywhere is zfs

        feel free to stop beating dead zfs horse

        you can do even better by using one piece of awesome totally open source technology Linux and BTRFS, so what is stopping you?

          should your piece of crap run slower because you can't write it properly? i don't know and i don't care

            yes. non-gpl modules are bad for linux. just look at overwhelming success of non-gpl kernels

              Like the BSD kernel that Sony uses with their Playstation products? Sony is only the #1 in the world when it comes to game consoles and they use a non-gpl open source kernel.

                  Already know plenty of your opinions..
                  "Deutschland, Deutschland, khm,. Linux, Linux über alles,
                  über alles in der Welt.."

                  I'll leave it to you to figure out the exact origins of the hymn above

                  Server space, excepting web servers (intranet), is dominated by Windows servers (~60%+ - I am extrapolating it from analytical data applying to Netherlands, which is your average free democratic country, "as good as any other"), smart phone business dominated by Android.. will see if Google's Fuchsia would eat it out of the market or not in the future..

                  If I was you, I'd get down from that high horse. Strong alternatives make also Linux stronger.

                    No it doesn't. Unless you refer to MMX but nobody really uses that. SSE is completely separate registers from the x87 FPU.

                    Again, plain wrong, nothing is recycled. And also floating point is not "unstable", it always gives the exact same result given the same state. However, you don't have to use floating point moves to move between SIMD registers (which is what copy operations are), so you are COMPLETELY wrong.

                    btw, SIMD have many integer operations and I'm pretty sure it's what the checksum uses. The AES instructions also operate on SIMD registers but they are pure logical/integer instructions only.

                      Is it Open Source still if you can see or inspect the code?
