How Did KVM Virtualization Get Into the Linux Kernel?

Filed under
Linux

Kernel-Based Virtual Machine, more commonly referred to as KVM, is one of the most popular open-source virtualization technologies in use today.

KVM was originally written by Israeli software developer Avi Kivity while he was working at Qumranet. Qumranet was acquired by Red Hat for $107 million in 2008. - See more at: http://www.eweek.com/cloud/how-did-kvm-virtualization-get-into-the-linux-kernel.html/#sthash.QHe4s5Kc.dpuf

GNOME Shell vs. KDE Plasma Graphics Tests On Wayland vs. X.Org Server

With KDE Plasma 5.12 that openSUSE Tumbleweed has picked up, there is much better Wayland session support compared to previous releases. While KDE developers aren't yet ready to declare their Wayland session the default, in my experience so far it's been working out very well but still routinely will find application crashes in Kate and the like when testing under the KWin's Wayland compositor.
