I was having fun writting a small utility that displays pixels randomly in some
window and I noticed something.
When reading from /dev/urandom, pixels are displayed everywhere:
but when reading from /dev/arandom, i get the following:
showing that a particular value is never read from the device.
I left the app running and I noticed that very often, similar lines appear after
some time showing that the another value comes out very often compared to other
as the clearer lines show:
I was just wondering if this is a normal behaviour or not from arandom ?
