[News] New Linux RC Returns to "Tux", Btrfs Benchmarked

Hash: SHA1

Linux 2.6.30-rc4

,----[ Quote ]
| Lots of random small changes. And one big revert - say "Goodbye" to Tuz, 
| and "Hello again" to Tux. 
| For people who prefer the tazmanian devil, you can revert the revert 
| with "git revert 3d4f16348b77efbf81b7fa186a18a0eb815b6b84" and you'll get 
| your Tuz back.  
| Other than that? Pretty random. ARM, m68k, Microblaze, Powerpc updates.  ACPi 
| and i915. DVB and network drivers. PCI and USB. btrfs and ecryptfs.  
| Networking and sound. All over the map, in other words.   


Btrfs Benchmarks: Btrfs Is Not Yet The Performance King

,----[ Quote ]
| With the release this week of Fedora 11 Preview, which incorporates 
| install-time support for the Btrfs file-system into Red Hat's Anaconda 
| installer, we have now delivered our first set of benchmark results for this 
| next-generation Linux file-system. Through a horde of disk tests we have 
| looked at the Btrfs file-system performance and compared it to that of EXT3, 
| EXT4, and XFS. While Btrfs does perform well in some areas, it is not yet the 
| performance king for Linux file-systems. As our results show, in some tests 
| it even has a hard time competing with the incremental EXT4 file-system.

The Evolution Of An GNU Project

,----[ Quote ]
| First lets be honest GnoMenu is a fork of another project the "Gnome Vista
| Start Menu" by Chris Hughes. Most hard core Linux users looked at the menu
| Chris did as a cheap Vista look alike. In some ways it was but Chris also
| stated that other menu designs were possible yet no one really bothered to
| pay attention. Well almost nobody. Enter Helder Fraga who took Chris' work
| and forked it into GnoMenu.

| appealed for its inclusion in the Linux kernel.
