Bugs fixing in linux; hardware compatible or software compatible ?

When kernels were in the 2.4.x development, hardware compatibility is i386, vgs 891, and ethernet and scsi emulation, etc. That was the Linux operating system.

In 2.6.x development, there was the ambiguous devices mad of DSP or sound chipsets with their firmware(udev /usr drivers and firmware). And the desire to operate servers better with very large memory(PAE) and data synchronization(cron jobs) with distributed servers(unionfs). Unionfs was confused with operating system update service even in the beginning of 2.6.x development instead of database cron jobs(such as distributed credit card processing).

To fix bugs in linux is almost impossible, unless you use embedded approaches of tiny linux operating system. Recently, we shake down SliTaz 3.0 stable which is basically a kernel 2.4.x operating system of i386 platform with tk toolkit. Knowing that, we have to make laptops compatible by using i386 peripherals. And the drivers worked very well, Midori works better with Yahoo portals.

It shows that Linux was software compatible at best, by choosing hardware that meets the drivers backward compatibility. Linux was never meant to borrow old shared library(file switching) for the latest cpus, chipsets and peripherals. We should never be confused by Linux compiled by GCC versions that used i386 or Pentium one i686?  GCC versions have to have hardware compatibility list of components to be backward compatible.

Unix is packet switching, windows will be browser packet switching soon, getting rid of desktop app file switching bugginess. Linux is stuck with gnu and file switching of bugs galore with no way out. Linux is obsoleted by old software files without newer replacements for newer technology. Most of the time struggling with old graphics protocol bugs(qt, gtk+ but less problems with tk).

So, how do w move on without old shackles on our ankles. Packets have contents that is always fresh and new. Each packet is a new operating system. Time to get rid of old files for switching in the wrong operating system.

So, the argument of when will Linux have desktop year of success, may never happen.

Desktop is isolation of your computer, browser brings you in contact with the rest of the population. Winning the desktop apps is foolish at best; History had shown Linux desktops self destruct by newer graphics interpretations. Changing a webpage on graphics presentations is no sweat. But done every day, and you will lose your brand identity. Immature Linux developers create bugs galore and soon lost user interests(Ubuntu/unity).

Well, we have demonstrated how to make SliTaz work by publishing a compatible list of pcmcia cards? Many Linux distros has yet to publish a list of hardware compatible. The sooner the better popularity. Platform compatibility, memory size compatibility, peripheral compatibility, desktop apps compatibility, and internet apps compatibility?

Computer architecture is now only USB bus and instant on WiFi traffic control. Radio bus to the internet servers. USB is internal bus linked to your wired data center; WiFi is external bus linked to DNS servers for worldwide internet servers. Lucent orinoco started with pcmcia then plugged into a USB socket, now can plugged USB into a tiny computer(USB edgeQam transceiver) on the telephone pole to connect to the central office for wifi hotspot built out around the world.

Distros had to give up Linux stack of 30,000+ desktop apps, obsoleted by qt and gtk+. Concentrate on tk toolkit for internet apps of 100,000+ strong, doing GPS maps and search engine results that had to be summarized(object technology expert system inference engines).

Linux can yet be saved not by google and the desktop stack, but by imitating Apple and its internet apps.

Reduced pixel conversion for webpages are in discussion now a days. If you apply jpeg zoom of 2:1, you save 1/2 of the time to transfer the data. But as quality control, you need character recognition on fonts in the picture after reversion or restoring of resolution.

The ultimate goal is 100x reduction of resolution with correction of jagged lines in the pictures. And fonts replaced by video pixel codes.

Digital cameras can do 4x or 12x etc. but eventually video restored still need enhancement treatment(noise reduction).

Re: Bugs fixing in linux; hardware compatible or software compatible ?

If you follow the way computers are being developed here, you realized soon that its data transfer rate improvement first by data compression technology. Time savings by automation of object technology. Then system simplification of minimum of buses but adding multiplexers of data channels for massive parallel data processing. Its not at all like your fathers' computers any more.

Lagacy computer designers found their products too expensive and not selling well. smartphones are now very handy and everyone would love to have one if simple to operate by voice(speech).

Apple is pioneering their Star Trek computer system even now.

Webpage and adobe can run smartphone apps and games; and bypass all the bugs galore of GNU/linux library and compatibilities in kernels and desktops.

Re: Bugs fixing in linux; hardware compatible or software compatible ?

Drivers can be replaced by systemd packets to avoid bugs galore of gnu gcc compatible codes especially in graphics tool kits being changed in desktops. Packets can convert desktop graphics to webGL(html5) in webpages.

Re: Bugs fixing in linux; hardware compatible or software compatible ?

Linus had revealed that he is now using developers to fix kernel bugs. Git is no longer usable when kernel is more complicated. The problem is that he may be using 1000 developers, not all of them are completely capable of solving all the functional dependency bugs. Most bugs maybe have to be solved by GCC compiler. But, alas GCC has to take care of graphics codes being changed by Gnome and KDE and unity. Ubuntu operating system takes 5 years to become bugs free, after functional feature stopped evolving.

So, Linux kernels being usable in any new features is highly questionable. So little time to learn the new features even in windows operating system is the same problem in the computer industry. On the other hand, the smartphones are simpler with less peripherals(driverss), and the webpage apps are more controlled in codes to its own features and not likely corrupted by any developers outside of website(secured transfer of data).

The hand writing is on the wall. The market of smartphones will obsolete iBMPC market. Microsoft surface only has modest sales. Android is based on smartphones but tries to be usable on iBMPC. Telephone devices can operate more cpu in parallel by busy fell over codes used in Unix. And battery power can be more sfficient if number of pixels are less.

Smartphones are for paperless society, big data is stored in data centers, downloaded for reading if needed. There are new websites to replace published media suppy.

Re: Bugs fixing in linux; hardware compatible or software compatible ?

Linux kernels use file systems and data storage(scsi) but had to be compatible with windows partition and fat table protocols.

This ran into writeback problems of corrupting the data storage when fragmentation exceeded fat table limits. Desktop Linux kernels also had too many layers of file systems.

When people switch to smartphones, the hardware and software does not need disk operating system. file system is not used to store data in browser operating system. Data storage in smartphones are simple, not easily corrupted. Big data is stored in secured data centers.
