I’ve continued to be active in the Linux-VM debate over on Slashdot. One sub-thread stemming from the post I mentioned yesterday has focused on the software-process aspects of the situation. In an entirely different thread I’ve been one among many correcting a whole bunch of untruths and misconceptions about how virtual-memory systems work. Of course, no discussion of Linux-VM would be complete without me pointing out the total stupidity of the “OOM killer” idea.
