Linux 2.6.34-rc5

| Another week, another -rc. This time there
| wasn't some big *** regression I was
| working on to hold things up, and it felt like
| a pretty regular -rc release.


Linux compatible wireless keyboard

,----[ Quote ]
| SiTouch has announced the release of a new
| wireless keyboard. This is a very cool looking
| keyboard with back lit keys for low light. For
| those of us who occasionally work late on our
| computer this feature is appreciated. The
| keyboard also contains a touch pad.



File-System Benchmarks With The Linux 2.6.34 Kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| File-system benchmarks have become quite
| common to Phoronix in the age of EXT4 and
| Btrfs with these new file-systems driving much
| of the interest and as we have also been
| finding the Linux file-system performance to
| change between kernel releases (and in some
| cases, the performance has changed a great
| deal). Most recently we delivered benchmarks
| of EXT4 vs. Btrfs vs. Reiser4, but now a month
| later we are back with more Linux file-system
| benchmarks as we look to see if the disk
| performance has changed with the Linux 2.6.34
| kernel.


Linux: 2.6.34-rc4, "Hunting A Really Annoying VM Regression"

,----[ Quote ]
| "It's been two weeks rather than the usual
| one, because we've been hunting a really
| annoying VM regression that not a lot of
| people seem to have seen, but I didn't
| want to release an -rc4 with it," began
| Linux creator Linus Torvalds, announcing
| the 2.6.34-rc4 Linux kernel. He explained,
| "we had the choice of either reverting all
| the anon-vma scalability improvements, or
| finding out exactly what caused the
| regression and fixing it. And we got
| pretty close to the point where I was
| going to just revert it all."
