    It is always interesting to see, that e.g. RedHat is heavily involved in most important projects whereas Canonical usually doesn't give back a whole lot to the community as they usually fork stuff, maintain their own patch-sets or simply prefer to do their own thing instead of building something great together (Unity, Mir, Upstart, ...).
    Usually I will agree with you. Upstart, Mir are unnecessary/double work, but I really like Unity. It is the most lean environment for me. I tried Fedora 21 and Gnomes Hell for a while, but I got frustrated with the ugly fonts and so much vertical space wasted. I would like to ditch off Ubuntu, but the only viable alternative is OSX unfortunately.

    Hm, no wonder why GCC compilation takes forever and doesn't even fit into 4 GiB tmpfs. But yes, optimisations are always nice.

    I also hope GDC could be more readily available than it currently is...

    Phoronix: GCC Soars Past 14.5 Million Lines Of Code & I'm Real Excited For GCC 5

    If you thought LLVM/Clang with just under four million lines was a huge code-base for a compiler as the entire Linux kernel is over 19 million lines, just wait until you see the current size of GCC...
