ArchLinux upgrades have been getting smaller

Recommended Posts

Don't you know it's a bad habit to click on every random item on web pages?

 

Only if you're running Windows w/ IE. ;)

I know the shrink in this is small, but the kernel just got smaller, again!

You sound like a pretty jaded individual, Roger. I guess you probably wouldn't even be surprised to know that I actually own a pink tu-tu. I don't dance, though. ;)

How much would you pay? I'm pretty desperate these days. I'm seeking funding wherever I can find it.

And the hits just keep on coming!

Today it was the fine folks who bring us xorg, grub, firefox, and couple libraries.

Yay Linux developers!

Again today, it shrinks. You gotta love this.

Even when it doesn't shrink, it usually stays the same or only grows a tiny amount.
