TechComparison - Linux Virtualization Wiki

This table compares the features and performance of the various virtualization technologies available for Linux. Hopefully this table also explains why many Linux distributions today ship Xen, even though UML,lguest and KVM are upstream.

toofishes.net - What's wrong with SVN

Subversion was the first serious open-source (and free) version control systems to be a worthy rival to CVS. For anyone that has used CVS in the past and has moved on to better tools, you can understand where those who started the Subversion project were coming from. With CVS came no atomic commits, no easy way to rename files, and many other fun things I have since forgotten. Fast forward 10 or so years. We now have a huge selection of version control systems, many of which have adopted the more distributed model. SVN still fills that niche (especially in the corporate world) of having a centralized repository while not being near as encumbered with restrictions as CVS. You'd think in 10 years of steady development, SVN would have done a pretty good job getting the kinks worked out. Compare this to git, which has only been around for five years.[...]

Anti-Grain Geometry - Texts Rasterization Exposures

Joel Spolsky in his article “Font smoothing, anti-aliasing, and sub-pixel rendering” [1] compares Microsoft and Apple ways of text rendering and explains why windows people don't like Safari.

At least, some ideas may be useful for the GNU/Linux community.

Choosing a non-relational database; why we migrated from MySQL to MongoDB « Boxed Ice Blog

Until recently, our server monitoring application, Server Density, was running using MySQL for the backend. Although we primarily provide it as a hosted service, it has been written to work as a standalone application for customers that wish to install on their own servers. This means each customer had their own MySQL database. We collect a lot of data – the monitoring agent reports back every 60 seconds and includes various statistics, of which the server snapshot has the most data (because it is collecting details on every running process). Over time, this results in millions of rows in the database, even for just 1 month of data, per server monitored.
