SuSE and/or Mandriva

Actually I have both or neither if you whish, my Mandriva 2006 is actually an upgraded cooker, and SuSE is a speciality SuSE Open (the speedy one) upgraded with the 10.0 DVD.
Although I have many years under my belt with Mandr[ake/iva], and almost no real life experience with SuSE, I am "affraid" I will have to change my opinion about SuSE.
I totally agree with srlinux, SuSE is reaaly nicelly, and profesionally
put together, logical, and most of all, fast as Sal's new HD (the bike, not his harddisk).
Mandriva made some really nice things on booting, currently cooker is my undisputed champion on booting, but on the day to day compiles, desktop work SuSE seems snapier.

Linux 4.2 Offers Performance Improvements For Non-Transparent Bridging

The Non-Transparent Bridge code is undergoing a big rework that has "already produced some significant performance improvements", according to its code maintainer Jon Mason. For those unfamiliar with NTB, it's described by the in-kernel documentation, "NTB (Non-Transparent Bridge) is a type of PCI-Express bridge chip that connects the separate memory systems of two computers to the same PCI-Express fabric. Existing NTB hardware supports a common feature set, including scratchpad registers, doorbell registers, and memory translation windows." Or explained simply by the Intel Xeon documentation that received the NTB support, "Non-Transparent Bridge (NTB) enables high speed connectivity between one Intel Xeon Processor-based platform to another (or other IA or non-IA platform via the PCIe interface)."
