Torvalds: Real quality means taking it personally
The Linux Foundation (LF) has posted a ten-minute video interview with kernel coordinator Linus Torvalds. Held during the Linux Foundation's recent Linux Kernel Summit, the interview reveals the Linux founder speaking out on issues ranging from kernel/userland interactions to why Linux has so many interfaces.
Much of the interview with Torvalds (pictured) has the kernel project's chief coordinator discussing issues related to the LF's recent Kernel Summit held in September in Portland, Ore. The interview was held only a few weeks before the release of the 2.6.27 kernel, which added a number of changes of interest to the embedded community, including "Ftrace" and "Sysprof" trace tools, a new "UBIFS" flash filesystem, and support for network drivers with multiple transmit queues.
