New German Linux Forum (forum.linux-talk.de)

In the last weeks, some folks were busy to build a new German Linux Forum “forum.linux-talk.de”, since the predecessor was systematically ruined by the commercial owners.

Performance is rarely an accident (Deutsch)

Some time ago, I saw a great presentation of Cary Millsap: „Thinking clearly about performance”. It was obviously relevant for our internal developers, so he unhesistantly granted me permission to reproduce some of his ideas for us. Cary, thank you very much!
