Subject: Wanna Build a Supercomputer? You’ll Need Legos and Raspberry Pis…

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Wanna build your own supercomputer? All you need is some Legos and a few dozen Raspberry Pis. That’s Raspberry Pis — no “e.” If you can build a supercomputer with raspberry pies, do let us know. We mean those super-small Linux PCs cooked up by some brainy researchers in Britain. Yes, you’ll need Legos too — and maybe some help from the closest 6-year-old.

How much difference can a single instruction make? On the Raspberry Pi, it can make a difference of 14%, demonstrable without any expensive digital testing equipment.(Not strictly Linux/FOSS, but shows testing with a DIY philosophy.)

This is an article about Ansible. Ansible is a radically simple model-driven configuration management, deployment, and command execution framework. I'll give an overview on how I use it, give an install and setup tutorial, give example commands and have example playbooks.

Subject: The Case Against Patents

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The case against patents can be summarized briefly: there is no empirical evidence that they serveto increase innovation and productivity, unless the latter is identified with the number of patents awarded– which, as evidence shows, has no correlation with measured productivity.

Subject: NVIDIA Performance: Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu Linux 12.10

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

With a largely shared driver code-base across platforms, the binary graphics drivers offered by AMD and NVIDIA perform at roughly the same speed for OpenGL between Linux and Windows; that's traditionally been the case and what Phoronix benchmarks in prior years have shown for NVIDIA and AMD. However, the OpenGL performance difference between operating systems is beginning to widen due to compositing window managers and other factors now affecting the results to a greater extent. In this article are benchmarks of the proprietary NVIDIA graphics driver from Microsoft Windows 7 and then development snapshots of Ubuntu 12.10 with Unity and KDE desktops.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Most often when benchmarking Intel hardware on Phoronix it's from the latest-generation "Ivy Bridge" or previous-generation "Sandy Bridge" families because, well, that's what is most interesting and exciting right now. Intel has made lots of open-source Linux driver advancements for this latest Intel hardware -- while simultaneously working on next-generation Haswell and Valley View support -- but how is their support standing for much older hardware? In this article are benchmarks from an Intel Atom with GMA3150 integrated graphics.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The year 2012 will go down in history as the Year of the Patent Wars. Since January, there have been so many patent lawsuits in the mobile phone market alone that it is nearly impossible to follow who is suing whom anymore. A synopsis of some of the most high-profile patent lawsuits this year goes something like this: Apple vs. HTC, Apple vs. Samsung, Apple vs. Motorola, Google vs. Oracle… among several others.
