Debian 8.0 Jessie - GNU/Linux vs. GNU/kFreeBSD Benchmarks

Filed under
Debian

Here's our latest benchmark results comparing the performance of Debian Jessie GNU/Linux vs. GNU/kFreeBSD -- the Debian port that uses the FreeBSD kernel rather than Linux.

The Debian GNU/kFreeBSD port is now shipping with the FreeBSD 10.1 kernel by default and aside from that has most of the standard GNU utilities and user-land supported by Debian GNU/Linux. GCC 4.9.1 is the default compiler and UFS is the default file-system for GNU/kFreeBSD.

Meet Devuan, the Debian fork born from a bitter systemd revolt

Filed under
Debian

Debian’s suffering a civil war, and it’s all because of systemd. A Debian systemd maintainer and others have resigned, a splinter group threatened to fork Debian if the controversial init system was made mandatory, and a Debian Technical Comitttee vote chose systemd as Debian’s default init system.

Part of this, I'm sure, is that it’s easy to think we all just know how we're supposed to treat people, and so you shouldn't have to say, right? Read more
