Linux Versus E. coli

,----[ Quote ]
| Both Linux and E. coli are organized into 
| hierarchies. But their hierarchies have 
| different shapes. E. coliâs genome is 
| dominated by workhorses. Middle-managers 
| and master regulators make up less than 5% 
| of the total number of genes. In Linux, by 
| contrast, over 80% of the functions are in 
| the upper echelons. Each workhorse in Linux 
| is controlled to many middle managers. In 
| E. coli, on the other hand, each workhorse 
| gene is typically controlled either by a 
| few genes or just one. And so in E. coli 
| itâs the higher levels where genes have the 
| most links, not the workhorses.


Phenom II X6 Performance Under Linux Below Expectations

,----[ Quote ]
| In testing the Phenom II X6, Linux Magazine 
| noticed that AMDs new processor doesn't 
| have the full performance under the current 
| Linux kernel. A bug in Linux power 
| management throws a wrench into the six-
| core processing.


Systemd presented as SysV-Init and Upstart alternative 

,----[ Quote ]
| The main developer of Upstart, Scott James 
| Remnant, commented on Systemd shortly after 
| it was presented in his own blog. Remnant 
| admits that Upstart is by no means perfect 
| and that he cannot argue with the points of 
| criticism that Poettering brings up. But 
| now that Ubuntu 10.04 has been released, he 
| says he plans to spend more time on Upstart 
| and focus on a number of the criticised 
| elements. He adds that it is too early to 
| tell which of the two approaches will be 
| better in the long term.
