Fortunately the syntax for the new nft utility seems to be easier to understand http://kernelnewbies.org/nftables_examples
I don't see where is he "shitting" on Canonical. It's obvious that he has done quite a lot of research before writing it (he has actually read the code), and he is pretty neutral about Canonical, he is just points outs facts. It's a good post.
Which makes me think that it's you who is butthurt, and the one shitting on other people. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if you hadn't read the post before writing your comment.
Is no government in the world sovereign, for the people, by the people, of the people it represents?
In theory yes, Spain is sovereign. But so is America. If Spain decides that pirating is OK, i guess that Americans can restrict/boycott Spanish IP commercialization.
In the real world, issues like IP protection need worldwide collaboration. Everybody wants their own IP protected, and in order to get that they need to protect the IP of other nations. It's necessary to find a balance, and if every nation listened only to their own citizens, they would never find one.
What's the word with XFS these days?
a dist-upgrade took more than 4 hours instead of the expected 1.5 to 2 hours it takes with ext4.
That's not due to poor small file performance in Btrfs, it's due to poor fsync() performance (which package tools like rpm and dpkg use quite a lot). In this new kernel version the Btrfs fsync() implementation is a lot faster.
Right, because promoting open source GPL-compatible drivers didn't work for Linux.
Oh, wait, it worked. The Linux hardware support is overall quite good (with many hardware manufacturers working with upstream to contribute drivers). In fact, Nvidia is a minority - Intel has the biggest market share in graphic chips (avobe 50%), AMD/ATI is second. Both have contributed open source drivers which are getting better and better.
Wait, people needs training videos just to learn how to handle windows?
