    Oh no, the (slow)laris troll is back.

    I thought kraftman would have taught you a lesson by now but it seems you'll never learn.
    Why are you talking about Kraftman? It was a long time (at least a year) I was logged in here, just check my activity. I dont remember all I talked to, but you do. How can you remember year old konversations I had? The only conclusion is that you are Kraftman. Hello, Kraftman! Long time, no see. Why did you get another account? Why do you not continue your old nickname "Kraftman"?

    Dont you think it was a interesting blog post by Con Kolivas? That he is ashamed over the Linux code quality, when he compared it to Solaris source code? That Solaris source code is so much better? That Linux scheduler is "about to explode" and "held with duct tape"?

    Why someone tries to reincarnate a dead cow slowlaris? Is there anyone who wants to run it on a desktop? OMG!!!

    Are you saying that Solaris is better than Linux on servers?

This 'systemd rulez' idiot is OBVIOUSLY the same loser behind the 'LINUX ANALS SOLARIS' and the like accounts. Ignoring is not enough because people keep answering whatever trollness that idiot craps. Discussions are being degenerated to nonsense.
    The funny thing is that this "systemd rulez" guy that bashes Solaris, does not know that Linux Systemd is a clone of Solaris SMF. The creator of systemd always makes heavy references to SMF.

    It is like BTRFS is a clone of Solaris ZFS, Open vSwitch is a clone of Solaris Crossbow, systemtap is a clone of Solaris DTrace, Linux also has a clone of Solaris Zone, etc. Soon the Linux camp have copied entire Solaris. But still, the Linux code is not so good in comparison, according to Linux kernel hacker Con Kolivas:
    http://ck-hack.blogspot.be/2010/10/o...s-illumos.html
    "...I started to feel a little embarrassed by what we have as our own kernel. The more I looked at the [Solaris] code, the more it felt like it pretty much did everything the Linux kernel has been trying to do for ages. Not only that, but it's built like an aircraft, whereas ours looks like a garage job with duct tape by comparison..."

    ZFS support is not quite on a parity ... although the code base is pretty much the same.

    ZFS pools can be created on Solaris "slices" (sub-partitions as it were) in Solaris/Illumos, and ZFS on Solaris/Illumos is used for the root pools by default, making it core to the OS.

    However, the USB support in Linux is by far and away better than the USB support in Solaris/Illumos (at present) meaning that ZFS on USB is significantly more stable on a Linux box ... the Illumos guys are looking to rip out the USB code (based on a streams interface) and replace it with something a whole lot more Linuxy (either from BSD, or written from scratch)

    PS. look out for LZ4 compression coming to ZFS on Linux soon, when they get the updated code base ... LZ4 is so fast that it is worth while turning on because it takes less time to read in from the disk and uncompress in memory than it does to read the slightly bigger file from disk!

    I think that ZFS is still considerably more mature on Solaris/Illumos than on Linux and BSD and that is not about to change anytime soon. Moreover, I'm not sure if Linux is as advanced with tools such as dtrace, truss, crossbow etc.

    If not for 3D, one good reason to use KMS is to make the GPUs run well with the system, particularly newer generation GPUs. Some GPUs need to be initialized by a KMS driver in order to activate their power management profile. When running such GPUs with standard VESA drivers, e.g. the cooling fan will run continuously at max speed.

    But I guess that is less relevant when running a headless setup as might be desired for file servers and virtualized environments unless we want to take advantage of features such as OpenCL or CUDA.

    I'm also a programmer... Assembly and C; coded an emulator and my own hobby OS.

    It has been some time since the last time I saw such an ignorant opinion about mathematics. Thanks for the memories and the laugh.

    BTW, I'm a mathematician; I know better than you what a proof is. Loser.
