The one that caused an application to be killed. I don't know what they did. Maybe it's the hack from your article?So tell me which hack was that?
Not true. Linux is less bloated than Windows, BSD, Solaris. I'm not talking about kernel size, but about things like ability to run unmodified kernel in embedded systems.True. Linux is next.
And this quote is from Solaris devs? This is from the Linux kernel documentation:"Mode 2 (which is new in 2.6) is certainly an improvement over modes 0 and 1 available in the older versions of the Linux kernel. However, mode 2 doesn't mean that memory will never be overcommitted. It just uses a different heuristic for guessing how much memory is safe to allow to be allocated."
Don't overcommit. The total address space commit for the system is not permitted to exceed swap + a configurable percentage (default is 50) of physical RAM.Just a size of a package and number lines of code. You're running just a few percent of entire Linux.growing rapidly = getting bloated
