Support, Usability

Sorry to say but the choice just boild down to lilo for me. It has best 64bit support for my laptop, easy to configure (i very much dislike the grub approach to configuring, yes not a good idea to be messing with something you dont understand that can be damaging but why make it more complicated for people who don't use it a lot) its simple to draw a connection between /dev/hda1 and the partition /dev/hda1 theres no need to be learning new idea (philosophy) on how to adress the hard disk.

Grub may be well suited to obscure uses i.e. booting 100+ distro's on the same box but i just need to dual boot and upgrade kernel so lilo is suited more for me i feel. (I upgrade due to no correct acpi support on the 64bit HP nx6125 Crying )

New Arduino boards include first FPGA model

Arduino launched a “MKR Vidor 4000” board with a SAMA21 MCU and Cyclone 10 FPGA, as well as an “Uno WiFi Rev 2” with an ATmega4809 MCU. Both boards have a crypto chip and ESP32-based WiFi module. In conjunction with this weekend’s Maker Faire Bay Area, Arduino launched two Arduino boards that are due to ship at the end of June. The MKR Vidor 4000 is the first Arduino board equipped with an field programmable . The Intel Cyclone 10 FPGA. will be supported with programming libraries and a new visual editor. The Arduino Uno WiFi Rev 2, meanwhile, revises the Arduino Uno WiFi with a new Microchip ATmega4809 MCU. It also advances to an ESP32-based u-blox NINA-W102 WiFi module, which is also found on the Vidor 4000. Read more

DragonFlyBSD 5.3 Works Towards Performance Improvements

Given that DragonFlyBSD recently landed some SMP performance improvements and other performance optimizations in its kernel for 5.3-DEVELOPMENT but as well finished tidying up its Spectre mitigation, this weekend I spent some time running some benchmarks on DragonFlyBSD 5.2 and 5.3-DEVELOPMENT to see how the performance has shifted for an Intel Xeon system.
