Just What is the "Linux Developers Community"?

Filed under
Linux

I must report that the woodshed session resulted in just a mere good old fashioned ‘talking-to”. As our readers know, we involve ourselves heavily in the linux developers community. We have offered and have given proven producers money for their efforts. Such fruits should be available for all to pick from in November of this year…and yes, resulting from the work of the Linux Developers Community. Now, I have been taken to task for using that term. Linux Developers community.

Yes, helios is aware that there is no monolithic structrure or sprawling complex with manned security that has huge granite signs stating: International Linux Development Headquarters. We also realize that there is no Brotherhood of Linux Union, organized Linux Fraternity or bowling league…at least not officially sanctioned by linux. See, that’s the point. Tell me of something that IS officially sanctioned by Linux.

So the question begs to be asked: Just who is a linux developer? Let’s look at the obvious choices we have. Ok Linus. Nothing like starting at the shallow end of the pool I say. Not many stumbles on this end. Now, some would argue that it gets mirky from here…and maybe it does. From there, we have legion of kernel developers and hackers, toiling away in obscurity. (I am informed that this is mutually benificial to hacker and society alike). As you butt-slide down the steep rocky slope that is Linux, you will begin to see more and more people involved in the development process. Some in clusters, some paired up…some working alone…but all working on one grand thing.

Linux.

and what are they doing?

Developing.

Developing what? Let’s take a look.

How I Use Android: Android Central Editor Emeritus Phil Nickinson

In the meantime, I was able to convince Phil to step out of his metaphorical kitchen for a few minutes to chat about how he uses Android in his day-to-day life. This is a man who has seen and used practically every Android device over the past several years, after all -- and a fair number of apps and customization tools, to boot. So what devices does someone with so much knowledge carry around in his own trousers, and how does he make the most of what they have to offer? Enough with the suspense already. In his own words, this is how Phil Nickinson uses Android. Read more

Best Android Phones Under 5.7 Inches

There's no question that Samsung hit a home run with its Galaxy S7 line. We already think the smaller GS7 is the best phone under 5.2 inches, and the larger, curved-screen Galaxy S7 edge is our pick for the best phone under 5.7 inches. Why? It takes everything we love about the smaller phone and makes it bigger — but not too much. Read more
