Cos I noticed latest kernel is 3.2
Technically. the idea is based on IO caching... you have a big slow drive and a small fast drive.
We're running off NAND for the root and memory for the rest. plus we've not swapping GB of IO.. so we wouldn't get an kind of speedup
It's a nice idea tho... we keep almost everything in memory which is faster than caching in most cases.
Oh why thank you young sir for the most prompt reply.
It's a shame it wouldn't change any functionality. Out of interest why is Pandy still on 3.2?
I guess because it is a ton of work to get all parameters right and customize new kernels for our hardware...
Edit: If it is not broken, why change it?
The 3.2.x will be maintained until 2016 i think.
Hmmm interesting. Thanks
It's not a ton of work, but it is still quite a bit of work and it doesn't offer anything new we don't have yet.
Ed I have a question for you. I'm about to buy a pandora but based in the UK. However I'm going to Amsterdam for a few weeks.
If I got my mate to buy it in Amsterdam would I not have to pay the 20 percent UK Vat?
Your friend would have to pay the dutch VAT then. Should be just a very minor saving, IIRC.
However this is related to the Kernel question...
No and no
You pay the VAT for the country you buy it FROM within the EU, so it is always 19% (German VAT).
