How to simulate a slow network

I think it is time to reveal a nifty little tool that I like to simulate a slow network connection, even without a network. It is called "tc" (think "traffic control") and is present on every modern Linux system. It is part of the "iproute" or "iproute2" package. tc lets you simulate (amongst other things) latency. We all know how network latency of even the slightest degree kills off every amount of remote X11 usability. Even if you throw multi-Megabits of bandwidth towards it, that will never compensate -- because it is just the wrong cure for an illness that consists of many thousand roundtrips undertaken by minuscule packets.

Can you fix it?

It is time to fix your distro. Distributors of GNU/Linux systems do an incredible amount of work. If you're not convinced of that, try putting together a complete system from parts gathered all over the Internet. The trouble is that these distributors must satisfy a very large range of users. They cannot narrowly target one group without discouraging all others. That's where you come in.

Theo de Raadt of OpenSSH fame brings up a question we'll be taking a closer look at in coming weeks. Pointedly, who pays for open source?

While it's great that companies save obscene amounts of money by selling their customers open source solutions sometimes they don't reciprocate to the people providing the work. An OpenSSH dev ML post by Theo de Raadt follows illustrating the issue.
