"To be more specific, this is a Virtualbox Ubuntu virtual machine running on Windows 10, grabbing a file across SMB from a Samba file server running inside the Windows Subsystem for Linux through Bash."
Cheaper or better? In the tech sector, especially niche stuff or startups you want the best people, not just the best people from the same country as you. If you don't get the best your competition will.
In a loose sense, ipfs _is_ a cdn.
rpm and apt are tools to fetch things from repositories, not for hosting them.
What I am suggesting is that they could be modified to fetch packages from ipfs instead of via http.
Hosting static binaries such as jar files is a great use case for ipfs.
In fact, it would be good to see package managers in general support IPFS downloading, and possibly good for privacy as well as availability.
> RFC6520-- WHY THE FUCK DOES THIS EXIST? Because it's too computationally expensive for clients to re-establish SSL sessions...?! Really? My dual core 2.15ghz smart phone begs to differ.
No. It's not about CPU time, but about the time taken to establish a connection due to the TLS and TCP handshakes. I think it's only a single round trip for the TLS part (someone will surely correct me if not) but that's on top of the TCP 3 way handshake, which all adds up. You can't mitigate network latency with a faster CPU.
These are partly the same reasons for http2 by the way. Re-using a single connection means avoiding the TCP and TLS setup happening more than once.
Finally, keeping a connection open for a long time and re-using it goes some small way to avoid revealing as much metadata to snoopers, as does multiplexing a single TLS connection rather than creating many.
If launching 5G networks works financially for the companies then they will do it.. With or without Net Neutrality laws.

I find that don't make as much on ebay once I've done that.
Please don't tell us (the whole of the UK) to f**k ourselves.
I am one of almost half the voters who wanted to remain. Almost all of my friends wanted the same. I work with people from across Europe and elsewhere on a daily basis. Some of us are very pro-Europe (although Europe is not perfect) and want to be in the EU as much as you probably do.
Some of us DO want Schengen and more open borders.
Some of us DO want a common currency. (or at least don't hate the idea)
I think I stand with much of Europe and half of the UK in saying "GO F**K YOURSELVES" to the Leave voters.
Please don't forget about us Remain voters and don't hate us! If you do, the Exit voters really HAVE won.
It upsets peoples' sense of egalitarianism, but it's still better for the overall housing situation than nothing. Of course, building enough housing on all levels of the market makes too much sense and will continue to be disallowed.
Benjamin Frankly surely would have been pissed if he knew that his name was stamped on the ass of a megaship designed to carry everything from wind-up frogs to American flags all made in China while the American's shipped back raw materials and money.
