Gnome Something's - once again - brewing within the GNOME project. While a mere suggestion for now, and by no means any form of official policy, influential voices within the GNOME project are arguing that GNOME should become a full-fledged Linux-based operating system, and that the desktop environment should drop support for other operating systems such as Solaris and the BSDs. I have a feeling this isn't going to go down well with many of our readers.

What about UFS being the shittiest file system in use right now (if we don't consider fat16, ofc). ?


Shittiest You say ... interesting.

Maximum UFS2 file size is 32 PB while maximum file size for EXT3 is 2 TB only ... and UFS2 is shittiest?

I would like to also hear on which properties You have measured that impressive shittiestness ...

FreeBSD can also do not have to use UFS at all now, it can boot from ZFS pool ... and Linux has nothing even close to what ZFS offers (do not even try to maze unexperienced users with BTRFS).

Linux guys created HAL and Udev and various init systems because they have the manpower and they can. After all, that is Linux about: reinventing the wheel.


Linux developers are like monkeys that with infinite amount of time will be able to write works of william shakespeare, so linux developers with infinite amount of time will be able to write PROPERLY DESIGNED and WELL THOUGHT operating system ...

Taking into account genetic drift, one already has.
