English: Hi, I am Thorsten. This post is pinned to the top of my stream and explains a few basics how I use this account.
German: Hallo, ich bin Thorsten. Dieser Post klebt ganz oben in meinem Stream und erläutert in der zweiten Hälfte kurz, wie ich diesen Account nutze.

English, 2nd part:
I'm from Germany and sometimes post German content here. If you do not want to see it unfollow the collections "c't & heise.de", "Linux und Open-Source-Software" and "Das Leben, das Universum und der ganze Rest". BTW: I put all my posts into a collection, so just unfollow those you have no interest in.

Whoami? I'm a Fedora developer since its early days and quite interested in the Linux kernel. Since more than ten years now I'm working as a technical Editor for Heise Medien and write for +c't magazin, +heise online, and +heise open. This is an entirely personal Google+ account, thus opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

German, 2nd part:
Ich bewege mich viel in der Open-Source-Welt; Englisch ist dort Lingua Franca, daher sind auch viele der Beiträge hier in eben dieser Sprache verfasst. Wer diese nicht sehen will, muss alle Collections außer "c't & heise.de", "Linux und Open-Source-Software" und "Das Leben, das Universum und der ganze Rest" abwählen. Alle meine Beiträge sind einer Collection zugeordnet, also entfolgt gegebenenfalls jenen, die euch nicht interessieren.

Web bin ich eigentlich? Ich bin ein Fedora-Entwickler der ersten Stunde und stark am Linux-Kernel interessiert. Ich arbeite seit mehr als zehn Jahren als technischer Redakteur für Heise Medien und schreibe dort für +c't magazin, +heise online und +heise open. Ich nutze diesen Google+-Account ausschließlich privat, alle hier getätigten Meinungen sind also meine eigenen.

I saw this on dx.com today. I've seen m.2 adapters before, but this comes in a convenient USB stick form factor. If your job involves working with files on a SATA-less ARM development board, e.g. doing native compiles or installing distros frequently, you probably want one of them (I'm sure you can find a similar thing at your favourite retailer).

Even if you have a "fast" eMMC on-board.
Even if you only have USB2.
Even if you get the cheapest m.2 SSD you can find (Transcend MTS400 32GB costs EUR 23).

Almost all SSDs have the DRAM cache and the controller necessary to give you good throughput on small I/Os, while almost all eMMC and SD cards do not.

If someone has one of these or similar, please let me know how they are in terms of build quality and throughput.
I like this from DX. Find the cool gadgets at a incredibly low price with worldwide free shipping here.

There a disk shader cache for Mesa i965 in the works: "[…] This series enables the on disk shader cache for vs+fs programs. For now transform feedback, SSO, tes, geom and vs or fs only programs all skip using the cache, these will be added in a follow up series. My goal with this series is to land something that passes piglit as soon as possible so that others can begin testing and playing around with it. I'm sure there are still many issue piglit is not exposing. Some issues I'm aware of include using the correct source and attribute bindings if they have been changed after linking and we fallback to a full recompile after a cache miss.

Matthias writes: "GTK+ 3.20 was released a while ago; […] We landed a lot of of new stuff, and many things have changed. […] A big set of changes is related to the inner workings of GTK+ CSS. […] Whats coming […] One of the big incoming changes for 3.22 is a GL-based renderer and scene graph. Emmanuele has been working on this on-and-off for quite a while – you may have seen some of his earlier presentations. Together with the recent merge of (copies of) clutter and cogl into mutter, this will put clutter on the path towards retirement. […]"

Meine Forschungen haben zur Veröffentlichung einer neuen Libdrm-Version geführt, die den Hauptauslöser der Linux-Probleme auf dem neuen Aldi-Notebooks mittelfristig beseitigt. #meingeschreibsel

Mitarbeiter von Intel haben die Linux-Bibliothek Libdrm um Unterstützung für neue Iris-Grafikprozessoren nachrüstet. Mittelfristig beseitigt das die Probleme, die c't kürzlich bei Linux-Tests mit einem Aldi-Notebook plagten.

Ich fand schonmal gut, dass Ihr das Aldi Notebook auch auf seine Linuxtauglichkeit geprüft habt. Dann noch die Ursachen aufzuzeigen und Intel zum Nachbessern zu bringen toppt das ganze noch. Super!
