New MariaDB & Linux kernel releases

The Linux 3.14 kernel has yet another process scheduler, a new network packet scheduler intended to combat bufferbloat, kernal address space layout randomization, and the usual plethora of other improvements.

MariaDB 10 has speed improvements, parallel replication, sharding, and NoSQL support. Looks like Oracle’s mySQL is truly irrelevant at this point; despite Sun paying Monty one billion US dollars for it back in 2008.
