Comment Re:Lots of cores doesn't mean shit (Score 3, Interesting) 114

real computers solving real problems with large core counts exist, and they have non-bus architectures by the way.
So according to you the cpus in the Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer with 256 cores per cpu don't really do anything?

I think you don't have a background in the field to be making such pronouncements, you're spewing out of your ass

there are free softwares that run on Linux (and BSD/Unix) that do the GL/AP/AR plus ERP, CRM, payroll, human resources, invoicing, bill of materials, inventory and warehouse management, taxes etc.

if you choose shit package because everyone else does, then run it on crap OS...and call everyone else being on high horse, well that's a point of view

actually, yes, the kernel itself could contain certain web servers, so brush up on your tech knowledge before spewing, please

Linus accepted the systemd hooks, for good or bad. I hate the stuff but I can blame Linus. Worth noting I admin hundreds of servers without systemD, in about two years my employer will have to make a choice about that

Not seeing evidence of your corporate control, rather Linus accepting contributions.

er, Linux is just the kernel.

The GNU utilities (not corporate) and other open source wares (let's analyze that a bit) that make up the rest of the OS, are the big pieces corporate controlled?

apache web server and tomcat java ee server: 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Apache Foundation
PHP, Python, Ruby, Perl, node.js., the big web platforms...nope
mysql - yes oracle, BUT
mariadb is now used more than mysql, community led
postgresql -
java - oracle, very corporate controlled really

the major desktops are community led
mozilla foundation: non-profit
chrome browser - yup google
adobe flash - yup though going away in favor of html5

So on the desktop I could choose to be corporate-ware based, or not...
