    I just wrote a new operating system too. It's so fast, and so efficient that it doesn't even need a hard disk, just a tiny amount of high speed flash memory. It stores all files as md5sum hashes and regenerates them on the fly from the checksums. The kernel is actually an AI that's way smarter than even Linus Torvalds himself!

    But it's not compatible with the GPL, so you Linux freetards can't have it.

    I call my new operating system "Bollux"

    (It's easy to make ridiculous claims)

    Math is hard, huh?

    The kernel does all kinds of stuff. Memory allocation. File transfers. etc. You can measure the overhead of each of these. Saying that A is 100% faster than B is just an awkward way of saying that B takes +100% as much time as A (so if A takes 5ms then B takes A+100%*A=10ms). In other words, if A is 100% than it takes 50% as much time. Thus a file transfer completes in 50% of the time. Measured overhead for memory allocation takes 50% the time.

    Likewise for memory usage. 300% improved memory usage is an awkward way to say that B uses +300% as much memory as A, e.g. that A uses 25% as much memory as B. (A+300%A=B, A+3A=B, 4A=B, A=1/4B, A=25%B.)

    That's all a big IF of course since these claims seem fairly spectacular. At this point in the OS design game "huge" gains are like 5% with really exceptional gains hitting maybe 20%, in specific areas. 100% across the board is insane.

    this a joke? don t install this thing in your pc.

    "the SphinUX OS can handle Hybrid graphics in a revolutionary way, using an advanced utility named SAGAS "SphinUX Advanced Graphics Adapter Switcher" to run different sessions using different graphics adapters."

    lolol i spend almost a year to put my hybrid system working, this is a miracle lolol all ppl from nvidia, amd, intel, xorg, mesa3d works for nothing lolol

    nice joke but its not april 1rs

    see see who is talking ...

    If a kernel uses 10MB (or whatever) of RAM that's 100% ... now if you use 100% less memory that's 0 MB. And if you go above 100% you actually have your kernel provide ram that didn't exist before ... kinda a funny concept but I'd invest in it

    PS: also isn't the point of the original post that the guy ridicules the bad language that leaves much ambiguity and/or is incorrect which should not happen to that extent for a serious project.

    Eclipse isn't a text editor, it's an IDE, which typically use over a GB of RAM. If you're trying to use it as a text editor, that's your own fault.

    And yeah, java is pretty awful about using too much memory.

    No, you missed my point, even though I stated more explicitly later. I agree that the kernel does stuff, but everything it does is in service of the applications. Once again, a "perfect" kernel would need no resources, and all cpu time and memory would be available to the applications. Of course that's silly. But people who hang out at places like this tend to like OS guts, internals, performance, etc - and may be prone to treating the OS as more important than the applications being run. That's putting the cart out in front of the horse. The OS enables the applications, and the less resources it uses to that end, the better. But it produces nothing, except to gearheads like us.

Might aswell just let the program write everything to disk and use 0% RAM if that somehow is considered to be cool and efficient.
    people that run something besides the browser and people that run graphical terminal servers do care

    Lots of people do (I'm the main packager )

    You're probably not interested, but here's the code anyway: https://github.com/chenxiaolong/Unity-for-Arch
