Recently, I bought a pair of those new Western Digital Caviar Green drives. These new drives represent a transitional point from 512-byte sectors to 4096-byte sectors. A number of articles have been published recently about this, explaining the benefits and some of the challenges that we’ll be facing during this transition. Reportedly, Linux should unaffected by some of the pitfalls of this transition, but my own experimentation has shown that Linux is just as vulnerable to the potential performance impact as Windows XP.
I’ve become mesmerized by Linus’ speeches. I’m currently scoping out on the speeches done by him (Interviews, maybe OK but I’m looking for his epic speeches in particular ). If you know of any, please drop a comment so that I can add them.
