Reviews

Randi submits, "XtremeResources is pleased to announce the publication of a review of the SimplyMepis 3.3 Linux Distribution by our very own Steve "sjohnson" Johnson."

This is a really nice review of Mepis starting out with a little background on Warren Woodford. The review includes some

of his hurdles encountered complete with lovely screenshots. Mr. Johnson states, "SimplyMEPIS 3.3 is so much easier to install and use than any other Linux distribution I've tried that I don't hesitate in recommending it to anyone. Other Linux distributions have their merits for seasoned users but SimplyMEPIS 3.3 needs no geek degree to install or use. MEPIS is the first Linux Distribution that I felt had a chance of replacing Windows." He concludes with some pros and cons and exclaims, "SimplyMEPIS has replaced Windows on my daily use PC".

This review is one of the better presentations I've read. Thank you Randi for your submission.

Full Review.

Samsung docs detail Linux TRIM bug and fix

We've been covering a report from search provider Algolia pointing out a potential issue in Samsung SSDs' TRIM implementation. More recently, Samsung itself reported that the bug actually resides in the Linux kernel, and that the company had submitted a patch for the problem. Now, we have more details of the bug. Samsung has provided us with internal documents detailing the exact cause of the issue, and the subsequent solution. We're geting a bit technical here, so we'll take some liberty to simplify. When Linux's RAID implementation receives a sequence of read or write operations, it creates separate buffers in memory for each of them. Read more
