    Phoronix: A Look At What's On The Table For Linux 5.3 Features

    With the Linux 5.2 kernel due to be released in a few weeks and that marking the opening of the Linux 5.3 merge window, here is a look at some of the likely features coming to this next version of the Linux kernel...

    Are you going to make an update on the performance of Linux 5.x compared to 4.x ?

    I am still concerned about your findings regarding Linux 5 regressions.

      This is possibly the first kernel update that [currently] has no impact at all on anything I have/use, at home or at work.

        I still hope 5.2 will be able to fire up a display on my HP envy x360, last bootable kernel with display support is 4.19

          That model seems to have a problem with linux-firmware's

            Looks like that was updated on 5-2-2019.

              Sounds promising, maybe I find some time to try the git version next week

                  100Gbit Ethernet... That's something only enterprise environments can take advantage of... Must be for data centers...

                  I would only see myself going for 10Gbit SFP+ or RJ45 networking and that's about it until M.2 SSDs catch up and is more affordable, making hard drives becoming moot in the future. I'm hoping the gap between 2TB SSD and 2TB hard drive will narrow in the next few years.

                    Regression testing is nice, but sometimes running it right is better than fast. Too much work on fast code has been partly to blame for these security issues. There needs to be some balance between speed and security and these days CPUs are so fast that security needs to take precedence.
