  • Not a specialist, but I suppose it has to do with having different configurations for different top level folder. In Unix-like systems, every top level folder have a different purpose, and what works for the root may not for /tmp, /swap, etc.

    In those example, no need to snapshot /tmp, as it is a forder whose file are bound to be deleted, and for which being able to restore has no use.
    /swap is pretty similar , and is often formated with a dedicated filesystem.
    /usr often only change during the package manager transactions, so snapshots are often tied to that, while /home may be set to keep daily snapshots.



  • Pedantic? Say the person that immediately assume anyone with a different opinion than his is a morron and did not read his previous message ?

    Here is some gaming benchmark. It is from 2022, sure, but is still relevant today to illustrate that gaming performance on Linux isn’t as easy as being the “same software with different configuration”.

    And I could go on with other games, which had different results.

    There are many variables that can affect those performance. Obviously, the Kernel, Driver and Mesa version has a big influence, but so have some less obvious causes like the filesystem used, the compiler options used, or even the compiler itself. That’s why those performances can vary so much in benchmarks.

    Phoronix many benchmarks proves the opposite. There is differences, even at the same Mesa/Kernel version.
    The difference between an hyper optimized distro, like Clear Linux (optimized for Intel CPUs), and more general ones (Ubuntu, Fedora) can be huge.
    Even between those general purposes distro, the technology choices (filesystem, scheduler, etc.) can make a considerable difference in some games/workloads.

    Hi everyone. This kind of content is allowed on c/games. If there is a lot of content about video-games, it isn’t the only kind of games we accept. Tabletop RPG, card games, etc. are all allowed, and browser games are too, as soon as there is no spam occurring.

    Still, we’d appreciate a heads up before starting to post recurring contents (especially daily content) in order to prevent anything becoming too prevalent.
