The main feature is data checksumming. All the other features are just icing on the cake (snapshots, data dedup, etc.). Ars has a good article with illustrations.
The main huge feature of filesystems like zfs and btrfs is check summing of the filesystem for enhanced data integrity. Snapshots, data deduplication, etc. are also nice features, but without the check summing, any file system issues will be multiplied (eg wrong bits would be propagated through the snapshots).
Somewhat analogous to P4 but not quite in that Bulldozer IPC is about at Phenom II levels. See here: fully loaded, IPC is equivalent to Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge but single-threaded it's about at Phenom II IPC.
AMD's original goal was to get Bulldozer to have similar IPC as Phenom II. Basically, Piledriver is what Bulldozer should have been.
Intel has had several RISC chips (eg i960), but Itanium is VLIW (ie not RISC or CISC).
Certainly it can be argued that it's AMD's fault for the current dominance of x86, but it's also true that none of the other architectures were cheap enough for the general populace to adopt, hence the abundance of ARM nowadays and POWER, SPARC, and currently on life support
Actually, Nexgen was the first to do x86 -> RISC. Then Intel with Pentium Pro. Then AMD with K5. As far as I recall, Cyrix never did x86 -> RISC back then until they were acquired by VIA (ie, Cyrix M series chips executed x86 directly, but VIA Epia and later translate).
No relation to energy used. It's in the article: Haswell will get it's work done faster and use about the same energy as the slower chips that take longer. What matters is architecture, not ISA (Atom is lower power than Haswell at the same process node).
And how did you do it?
still not sure if that's a pro or a conâ¦
Please stop. They're annoying.
Someone mod the parent post up. Linux 2.6 is bigger than Linux 2.4. systemd is also much larger than init.
From my router:
root@Linksys E1200 v1:/sbin# ls -Fsl init
12 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12635 May 27 2013 init*
12KB for init vs. 1.3MB for systemd. systemd privides no tangible benefit over init for a router (or at least to justify its size increase).
there are no games!!! What's the point of a corporate social network if users can't grow virtual crops and live stock???
Get an HTC. That's what I did. The HTC One M8 is a pretty solid phone. Or get a Nexus phone or the OnePlus One.
Oh, looks like Geohot figured out how to root the AT&T and Verizon S5s. Guess he gets the $18k bounty!
There's always going to be a flaw such that a new ROM can be installed. It's just a matter if whether there are enough interested technical people to figure it out. The Kindle Fires are rootable and have Cyanogenmod ROMs.
How so? LG G2 has a similar processor as the S5 (Snapdragon 800 vs 801) but a larger screen and similar camera. Plus all carrier variants of the G2 are rootable now. That's not the case for the S5.
