What Is To Become Of The Little Guy...?

Filed under
Linux

Just to give you a peek behind the curtain, there were some in the organization that balked at my choice. Given the recent turmoil in The Linuxsphere, the question was asked pointedly:

Is a small developer choice going to last for us?

It's an honest question.

The recent news that Fuduntu was going to be folding their tent in September took many of us by

surprise. For reasons that the lead developer states, he just cannot maintain Fuduntu. I don't know if Andrew has any idea of just how popular his distro is, and in the end, it really doesn't matter. If the toolchain and resources you use to build your product goes away.....

Then you go away too.

GNOME and KDE

    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
