Default Linus Torvalds calls Linux 'bloated and huge'

Its pretty old news, but we did not had news section by then:
http://theregister.co.uk/2009/09/22/..._bloated_huge/

Quote:
Citing an internal Intel study that tracked kernel releases, Bottomley said Linux performance had dropped about two per centage points at every release, for a cumulative drop of about 12 per cent over the last ten releases.
Quote:
"I mean, sometimes it's a bit sad that we are definitely not the streamlined, small, hyper-efficient kernel that I envisioned 15 years ago...The kernel is huge and bloated, and our icache footprint is scary. I mean, there is no question about that. And whenever we add a new feature, it only gets worse."

Cheater.

Seriously, though, it looks like an interesting article. I will be sure to read it tomorrow.

With the way linux development has become after 15 years, I'm not really surprised. But hey, there is always NetBSD :-).

@TerryP

Any info when 6.0 will be released?

At last it will have multichannel OSS subsystem which was one of the last things that was PITA in NetBSD.

I don't think Linus talks straight most of the time. (of course he is qualified to talk BS. ;-))

@vermaden I don't follow NetBSD development much beyond a couple developers blogs. Personally I expect it to be a ways after GSOC.
