deduplication takes an insane amount of RAM and is really only useful for static rarely written datasets, its strongly recommended against for VM images.

OTOH enabling lz4 compression is recommended - cpu/ram usage is minimal and the compression levels can be quite impressive, plus it can actually improve disk i/o as less data is read/written from disk. I have many VM's with compression enabled, compression usually reduces the image by about 30%

Not quite - zfs needs to contact the destination zfs fs to compare with the last snapshot, but that is a very quick process. Once done zfs already knows whats blocks have changed since the last snapshot, whereas rsync has to scan the contents of each file at *both* ends which is where all the time comes in.

Word. I'm deeply distressed that KDE seems to be going down this path. Flat widgets, low washed out contrast, tiny fonts, reduced options. Possibly the most butt ugly default wallpaper in the history of wallpapers. The ridiculous rebranding/renumber of libs/apps/plasma, so no one can figure out what version of what they have.

The moment you try to engage with any of the devs/designers re this, no matter how tactfully, they become very hostile. Its pointless

I keep retrying with new releases, but can't tolerate it.

But not Islam - Muslims were literally dancing in the streets on 9/11.

Bullshit - video of an entirely different celebration repackaged for western propaganda. That you and other various cretins still spout that nonsense along with crap such as "Iran called for Israel to be wiped off the map" (never said) os a sad indictment of the critical thinking skills of the typical slashdot/libtard reader.
