  • ​Linus Torvalds on Linux, life, and bathrobes

    Steve Jobs was never seen without his trademark black mock turtleneck, blue jeans, and New Balance sneakers. It's been said Bill Gates, the world's richest man, dresses like your high-school math teacher. But Linus Torvalds, creator of Linux, likes to be comfortable in his home office, so he spends his workdays in his bathrobe. Life is good when you're the world's most influential developer.

    At The Linux Foundation's Open Source Summit in Los Angeles, Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Foundation, interviewed Torvalds in front of a packed audience. Zemlin asked how Torvalds felt about his fame. Torvalds replied he doesn't really think about it, but "I'm happy I did something meaningful. Everyone wants to do something that matters."

  • RISC-V Eyeing Mainline In Time For The Linux 4.15 Kernel

    RISC-V developers have been preparing their kernel port for the mainline Linux tree while it's looking like for Linux 4.15 that goal may finally be realized.

    RISC-V developers have spent months getting their code into shape so it could be accepted to the mainline Linux kernel for this open-source, royalty-free CPU instruction set architecture. They have missed out on past merge windows, realize it's too late now for Linux 4.14, and are focusing on being ready come Linux 4.15.
