Valuable News – 2020/10/19

The Valuable News weekly series is dedicated to provide summary about news, articles and other interesting stuff mostly but not always related to the UNIX or BSD systems. Whenever I stumble upon something worth mentioning on the Internet I just put it here.

Today the amount information that we get using various information streams is at massive overload. Thus one needs to focus only on what is important without the need to grep(1) the Internet everyday. Hence the idea of providing such information ‘bulk’ as I already do that grep(1).

    Bardzo mi siฤ™ to podoba, ลผe instaluje powiedzmy NetBSD i nie ma zintegrowanego z jฤ…drem skryptowego jฤ™zyka Python. Nawet w czystych Linuksach typu Gentoo, Arch, Debian ten jฤ™zyk jest doล‚ฤ…czany do systemu. Bez zainstalowanego interpretera Python nie uruchomi siฤ™ ลผaden niechciany skrypt i to jest piฤ™kne. Twรณrcy Redox OS, teลผ wiedzฤ… ลผe takie integrowanie jฤ™zykรณw skryptowych w jฤ…drze tworzy zagroลผenie. Dlatego piszฤ… caล‚y swรณj system like Unix wyล‚ฤ…cznie w jฤ™zyku Rust. Jฤ…dro monolityczne jest szybkie, ale maล‚o bezpieczne w tych czasach. Idealne rozwiฤ…zanie to mikro jฤ…dro poล‚ฤ…czone z piaskownicฤ… i jakiล› nowoczesny jฤ™zyk programowania, ktรณry pilnuje wyciekรณw pamiฤ™ci. Jak jฤ™zyki Rust, Zig, Odin, Beef, Swift.
