I've used ZFS on Linux for years now and it's been fantastic for my long-term storage. One 2 TB drive runs all the time and I power another one up periodically to auto-sync with the first one. That saves power and drive wear vs an always-on RAID0 setup.

Comment Start with the CEO (Score 1) 561

According to CEO Tim Cook, he's unhappy with Apple's diversity numbers and says Apple is working to improve them

Simple solution, Mr. Cook... Just suggest to the Apple board that they replace the CEO with a more "diverse" choice. That way you could be a good example instead of putting other people at a disadvantage because of their race or gender.

2.X requires Mono if you want to run it on Linux or OSX.

KeePassX 2.0 (only alpha releases so far) uses the 2.X database format and has a native Linux/OS X version. I'm using it myself and don't have mono installed. It does have some nuisances, though... The big one for me is that when you save the database, it changes the file's user/group. Also, I don't think there's browser support yet.
