But after persisting through the learning curve, the mystery was unraveled and I can now comfortably switch between Linux and Windows whenever needed, and I actually feel like I understand the Windows file system better now after learning the Linux file system.

Making documentation easy with Read the Docs

Sunday 21st of August 2016 08:26:08 AM
In the Doc Dish column, we often have focused on writing documentation, but that's not the whole story. Once documentation is written, it must get in front of the user so to be read. For anything beyond simple readme files, this can be a challenge; often documentation writers need design, hosting infrastructure, search tools, and so on. One project aims to make that a little easier.

Linux Kernel Developers on 25 Years of Linux

One of the key accomplishments of Linux over the past 25 years has been the “professionalization” of open source. What started as a small passion project for creator Linus Torvalds in 1991, now runs most of modern society -- creating billions of dollars in economic value and bringing companies from diverse industries across the world to work on the technology together. Hundreds of companies employ thousands of developers to contribute code to the Linux kernel. It’s a common codebase that they have built diverse products and businesses on and that they therefore have a vested interest in maintaining and improving over the long term. The legacy of Linux, in other words, is a whole new way of doing business that’s based on collaboration, said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation said this week in his keynote at LinuxCon in Toronto.
