Gaël Duval Bids Farewell to Cookers

Filed under
MDV

In a tear-jerking last farewell, Gaël Duval says goodbye and thanks to the developers on the Cooker Mailing List. I felt my heart sink as I read the touching note as now it is for real and not just headlines. It's just too sad. His words:

I just wanted to say goodbye to you, Cooker Members.

You have always been an amazin support to Mandrake/Mandriva. As you kow I've been thanked by Mandriva but will start a new OS project called Ulteo (http://www.ulteo.com).

It's funny to think back at 1999 when I needed a name to design the devel version of Mandrake Linux, and thought of "Cooker". It wasn't particularly a "sexy" name nor planned to stay, but now we all use it as it was very natural Smile

Kind regards and respect, long life to Linux & Free Software,

Gaël.

We'll be keeping our eyes open for more on Ulteo (http://www.ulteo.com) for sure.

Ulteo

I wish I knew more about Ulteo. I think Gael was right about the desktop and I believed in him. Too bad he lost control of his dream.

Linux 4.2 Bringing Support For ARCv2, HS38 CPU Cores

The ARC architecture updates for the Linux 4.2 kernel have landed.

The ARCv2 ISA is faster and more feature-rich than their original instruction set architecture. The HS38 cores have a 10-stage pipeline core with MMU support, SMP up to four cores, and other new features.
