Linux

Recently, I bought a pair of those new Western Digital Caviar Green drives. These new drives represent a transitional point from 512-byte sectors to 4096-byte sectors. A number of articles have been published recently about this, explaining the benefits and some of the challenges that we'll be facing during this transition. Reportedly, Linux should unaffected by some of the pitfalls of this transition, but my own experimentation has shown that Linux is just as vulnerable to the potential performance impact as Windows XP. Despite this issue being known about for a long time, basic Linux tools for partitioning and formatting drives have not caught up.

LEARN
SOME
ENGLISH!!!

This is ridiculous:

"Reportedly, Linux should unaffected by some of the pitfalls of this transition, but my own experimentation has shown that Linux is just as vulnerable to the potential performance impact as Windows XP.

You either start teaching your writers some proper international English or you might as well post news in Dutch (or Italian: "Ho una notizia (quasi inutile) da divulgare ma mi manca il vocabolario!!!")

Grow up.

I made a mistake by leaving "be" out of my sentence. I think you're smart enough to make the appropriate inference. This was not intended to be a professional publication, so I didn't bother editing it 20 times and having it proof-read by lots of other people.

Aside from forgetting a word ("should /be/ unaffected"), I see no problems with what he wrote.

wow, he forgot one word, and therefore he's incapable of communicating in English?

Please, drink a fifth of scotch and calm the hell down.

That seemed pretty understandable to me, perhaps you need to bone up on your reading comprehension.

I would like to apologize to you all.

I was angry for other reasons.

I just lost my job.

I love OSNews, and I hate grammar mistakes on the front page. A little more care by the authors, that's all I'm asking for.

Cheers...
