The January 3 LWN.net Weekly Edition will be our first for 2019, marking our return after an all-too-short holiday period. Years ago, we made the ill-considered decision to post some predictions at the beginning of the year and, like many mistakes, that decision has...

Cloud computing services that run customer code in short-lived processes are often called 'serverless'. But under the hood, virtual machines (VMs) are usually launched to run that isolated code on demand. The boot times for these VMs can be slow. This is the cause of...
