Don't buy anything from Samsung link
Posted on 2008-07-25.

I just came from a presentation purported to be about a stackable filesystem from Samsung called SynergyFS. The talk was more of a hardware sales pitch with no technical details, and technology that "can't be released under the GPL because if we give it to you you can give it to anyone else."

Samsung definitely doesn't get Linux and Open Source and deserves to remain on the "to avoid" list when purchasing new hardware.

He starts with a presentation introducing some Linux development background, file layout and data types. The code walkthrough covers some important files and Linux list and bit modification APIs.

I used powertop to measure the wmii's effect on my power usage, and wicd to replace the Gnome-centric NetworkManager application.
