    Actually, TRIM has nothing to do with the HDD or caching. TRIM is a way for the OS to tell the SSD what parts of the drive are unused (freed from previous use). That way the SSD can efficiently...

  12. Re: g++ and CPU processors problem (Ubuntu 12.04)

    Any decent hardware design takes these things into account. If you use some cheap stuff (like the ones that share CPU cache), then performance will be impacted.
  13. Re: g++ and CPU processors problem (Ubuntu 12.04)

    There are always potential bottlenecks in parallel processing, like disk I/O.

    Re: What can Windows do that Linux can't?

    Is this thread about what the two operating systems are capable of or about what software is available for each?

    Many people here can't seem to tell the difference between these two.

    There is no technical reason that CADD software cannot be made to run under Linux.

    /boot should NOT be on a RAID array. The mdadm module will not be ready at kernel load time.
    Create a separate normal partition for /boot
