    Wow, seemingly zero changes in nouveau
    Since Nvidia no longer has any presence in the low-end market it's not so much of a big deal. Not that low-end dGPUs ever made sense in the first place.

    It's still at least good enough to drive a display. Unless it's on Optimus where dri prime still breaks Chrome and Plasma.

        but the windows monopoly is worst in russia than in germany.... not because of linux but because of the higher apple marketshare.
        because of this in my point of view the situation in russia is worst than in germany..

        i read it like this in germany microsoft has some decent competition and in russia microsoft has the absolute monopole.

        and sure i hope russia has some more linux adoption.. this monopole of microsoft is the worst

          On AMD (Rome), Gentoo installed on VMWARE, I've noticed PostgreSQL performance regression on 5.16, system feels less responsive than on old LTS (5.10.90):

          5.10.90: # pgbench -c 16 -j 8 -T 60 pgbench -U postgres
          pgbench (14.1)
          starting vacuum...end.
          transaction type: <builtin: TPC-B (sort of)>
          scaling factor: 1
          query mode: simple
          number of clients: 16
          number of threads: 8
          duration: 60 s
          number of transactions actually processed: 447273
          latency average = 2.146 ms
          initial connection time = 7.074 ms
          tps = 7455.146163 (without initial connection time)

          5.16.0: # pgbench -c 16 -j 8 -T 60 pgbench -U postgres
          pgbench (14.1)
          starting vacuum...end.
          transaction type: <builtin: TPC-B (sort of)>
          scaling factor: 1
          query mode: simple
          number of clients: 16
          number of threads: 8
          duration: 60 s
          number of transactions actually processed: 430771
          latency average = 2.228 ms
          initial connection time = 7.669 ms
          tps = 7180.173653 (without initial connection time)

            I agree!
            5.17 would be perfect.
