Now X is no longer involved in the boot process, and X does not start, (unless you use an X application with xwayland), because I replaced LightDM with the new loginmanager."

1.7 GB and no torrent? Who's gonna download that? I'm certainly not. Files >= 500 MB should always have a torrent (even if there is only one web seed and no other seeder). Some people don't have a very fast internet connection. Some people's internet has regular connection drops. So for "them" it is impossible to download files >= 500 MB via HTTP.

I've used "rural broadband" WiMAX ISPs where I wouldn't even think of trying to download a 500MB file with a browser. That said, I've used wget to transfer multi-GB files over those same connections (wget -c --timeout=10 --tries=100 http://somedomain.com/somefile.blah) & I find that works much more reliably.

This assumes that the server supports range requests. While these days all major and a lot of minor web servers support this, using a better protocol (like bittorrent) that has this as a central feature is IMHO a better solution.

This assumes that the server supports range requests. While these days all major and a lot of minor web servers support this, using a better protocol (like bittorrent) that has this as a central feature is IMHO a better solution.

The only problem is, BitTorrent has a tendency to outright hog all the bandwidth it can, with the capability of bringing any network connection to its knees. And not always download at the maximum connection speed at the same time. And I've seen many, many torrents download 99%... and then just quit right there. Multiple clients.

HTTP/FTP tend to allow me to download reliably at the maximum possible connection speed. All you need is a decent mirror. Really, it is incredibly rare that I find a server that doesn't support resuming... and even for those that don't, most of the time I'll never know because I don't get a broken connection. And if I do, the automatic retries prevents the problem from getting to the point where it it comes to my attention.

In my experience, BitTorrent's supposed benefits don't outweigh its negatives... and it's not often that I see a plain old HTTP/FTP server fail as badly. 404 not found is the worst I've seen, but in BitTorrent land I've seen torrents that never take off as well.

IMO what BitTorrent is best for are:

-Large files that cannot be downloaded in any other way--but *only* for a short period of time, because if you don't hurry up and download it while it's hot you're screwed. You could end up with insanely slow download speeds and a torrent that may just stop downloading and never finish up. Not cool... no fun at all. I've had some download at decent (not great) speeds and as soon as a seed goes offline, the download drops to an excruciating slow speed that never picks back up.

-Collections of many larger files that will not compress very well to begin with, that would otherwise be put in an archive anyway. In this case, it's nice that BitTorrent allows you to pick what files you want and skip the rest, and you don't have to extract a bunch of files from what could be poorly archived into a zip bomb or something similar.

"Download managers?

"

In theory, it can. In practice, I've found more often than not that Firefox will just restart a partial download from the beginning when I try to resume.

Since I've come to expect that, I usually make a duplicate of the .part file before trying to resume in Firefox - so when it almost-invariably fails to resume the transfer, I can just copy the download URL and resume the transfer using wget with the -c option (which has almost always worked IME).

As far as I remember, this has never worked with failed downloads: you can only start over from the very beginning, even if the server does support resume.

That's not really failure though, because Firefox stays in control of what happens all the time, unless you have brutally killed it or something similar.

What I call failure is those situations where the network connection itself is quite unreliable (think being far away from a WiFi hotspot or using a cell connection). In my experience, in this situation, Firefox will advertise the download as being either failed or (worse) completed even if it isn't.

Only 3 Mbps? Luxury, luxury! Oh, we used to dream of a connection that fast! In my day, we connected our web servers with nothing but a rotary phone and an accoustic coupler modem... over a party line!

Seriously though, my sister lives in a semi-rural area & the fastest connection available there is 1.5 Mbps down/0.5 Mbps up (WiMax) - with the only alternatives being satellite (slower and more expensive), 2G (MUCH slower and more expensive), or dial-up.

I can't imagine that would work very well. Hell, my sister is probably even more cynical about the whole "brony" thing than I am - and she watched the original cartoon back in the 80s (and owns 4 horses, for that matter). Though it could be because she's had a few students who were bronies, and who very quickly became disillusioned when they realized that real horses aren't actually cuddly cartoon characters.

And who am I to judge anyway? I greatly enjoyed watching Sex and the City in my early 20s, and that's something most guys would never admit to even if their spouse made them watch it (and I wasn't married then).


Oh yeah - and hell, we typically give trekkies & comic book fans a pass ;) Though it's not really the "girliness" of MLP that strikes me as odd, so much as the fact that there's such a large adult fanbase for a show intended for 5-10 year olds.

That's impressive, and I'd really like to think that Wayland will make such a difference; the current stack is a mess. However, I couldn't help but notice how he used two different distributions in the video, where the graphic server might not be the only difference. Also, he could have used composition under X as well, though I don't know how much difference would that have made.

However, I couldn't help but notice how he used two different distributions in the video, where the graphic server might not be the only difference

I'm pretty sure it's the same distribution (Debian) but the desktop/graphics system is different. First he uses LXDM on Xorg and then desktop-shell (Weston module) on Weston/Wayland.

The obvious effect in the video is because Wayland/Weston does compositing. In X11 without compositing, you get to see redraws all over the place. With compositing, no redraws. You can get the same results using 'xcompmgr -a' in X11.

I'll be more impressed if windows can resize smoothly with all the compositing effects. Window resizing on Linux has been terrible since GTK+ started using Cairo for everything.

Hmmh, it would be interesting to know how big changes we should be expecting to rendering speeds with any graphics libraries / toolkits.

All I can say at the moment is that the rendering windows, tilting, zooming, etc. on my Atom is really fast (60fps) and without hiccups and tearing. Butter smooth.
