Hey Linux Enthusiasts,
Are we having a meeting next week?
There are plenty of interesting stuff going on lately:
Valve, one of the major distributors of games for PC is moving towards Linux, and just joined the Linux Foundation - http://thenextweb.com/insider/2013/12/04/valve-joins-linux-foundation-prepar...
This is also pushing AMD/Nvidia to push for better graphics drivers.
Interesting bits from Kernel 3.13 - http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTUxNTk -F2FS a filesystem made only for Flash file systems.
- I am particularly skeptical about the "There's now NFTables as the
eventual replacement to IPTables."
Some filesystems benchmarks: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=linux_btrfs_311&n... http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=linux_312_fs&num=... I just find interesting that compression can actually increase your performance.
