    Re: EXT4 - I just don't get it.

    I think it's better than that in both FreeBSD and OpenSolaris worlds. Can't comment on the FUSE implementation though.

    Re: EXT4 - I just don't get it.

    The patent issue is much more annoying. It seems like Sun filed some patents around the key designs in ZFS. Now that Oracle owns them, I don't like the idea of what they might do when a "competing"...

    Again, the charge controller prevents overcharging, but the problem with running a laptop all the time with AC power is the heat! I've seen some pretty frightening laptop designs that place the...

    Re: someone told this about laptop batteries

    Lithium batteries are sensitive to heat, so if your laptops are constantly powered on and running on AC power, the amount of heat generated nearby the battery could negatively impact its lifespan.

    Adblock Plus should be effective at blocking that gigantic image. It makes me feel bad though to block that banner, I should say. It's for a good cause.

    Re: Tell us about your SSD experience.

    I'd suggest using relatime instead of noatime -- some applications rely on access times being updated.

    But the relevant option to enable TRIM is discard.

    IMO the problems with ext4 are not anything to do with filesystem corruption. Ext4 might lose a bit more of your data when you randomly pull the power plug compared to ext3, but filesystem corruption...

    This is one reason why you should consider the chmod symbolic name syntax as opposed to an octal permissions mode. Namely, the capital X specifier would've done a better job at doing what you...

    That's a bad idea, unless you can guarantee you'll never have an improper shutdown. Otherwise, your SSD is just as vulnerable as a rotational HDD to filesystem corruption and the need to run a...

    Depends on what you want it to do. You won't be able to sync music with it unless you're at 10.04. No version of Ubuntu can update the firmware on the device, and you can't really back up the device...

    Well, the maintainers of that PPA compiled that custom kernel for you. So in Lucid you'll be relying on them to track the latest security updates.
