New EXT4, Btrfs, NILFS2 Performance Benchmarks

Looking through my Google reader tonight and see this article about a few of the new Linux file systems. Worth checking out if you are thinking about moving to one.

50% off Windows 7 Upgrade till July 11

So for $50 you can get Home premium or for $100 get Windows 7 pro. Not bad but the fact I got Windows Ultimate and it was a complete waste of money doesn't fix the $229 upgrade for it. Why does Microsoft sell Ultimate when its a Ultimate waste of money? Really the Ultimate upgrade should be reduced for us. We spent the cash on Vista Ultimate expecting more then a few new wallpapers and software that doesn't work AT ALL. Main reason I'm moving away from Windows. I just feel screwed over.

Even Linux has issues. Video from Linuxfest.

No more reboots for Linux!!!

Very cool way to never need to reboot the PC after a update. This would be great for the servers at work.

Linux is better than Windows

I have completely moved off Windows. No more slow Vista but a stable and fast Linux system. Not that there isn't problems I can't run iTunes and a lot of games. Got to use VirtualBox to run a copy of XP to sync my iPod. But its a much better set up then running Windows 7.
