Success can build a feedback loop that sustains its own momentum, making those who are successful certain they are doing the right thing. I don't want to charge Docker with such hubris, but recent events illustrate why open source code projects function the way they do.
A Reddit AMA last week with Greg Kroah-Hartman, Linux kernel developer and Linux Foundation Fellow, went beyond the usual questions about his workstation setup and job description. Much of that was preempted by Kroah-Hartman's lengthy list of resources where the un-initiated can find his previous writing and presentations on those topics. Instead, he was able to answer more timely and specific questions which ranged from his thoughts on specific kernel patches, to the overall development process, to personal questions about his family, work habits and favorite beer. Below is an edited digest of some of the best responses. Visit the r/linux subreddit for the full AMA.

Making a quick pit stop to mark this milestone in my professional career: today is my 3-year anniversary at Red Hat! Time has certainly flown by and I really cannot believe that it has been three years since I joined this company.
Fedora 21 is the first release of the Fedora.Next initiative that separates Fedora out into three products: Fedora Cloud, Fedora Server, and Fedora Workstation. These new Fedora "products" are fairly self explanatory and it's the Fedora 21 Workstation that most users will be after who want Fedora as a desktop operating system.
Yes, I hope it’s true that Samsung will be giving back to the open source community. But seeing is believing, and I prefer to wait a while…perhaps a good long while…to see if Samsung’s real-world actions match its rhetoric and public relations efforts.
The following video shows Samsung embarking on a journey. The journey is Open Source which was started 18 months ago with a single member, Linux and FOSS advocate Ibrahim Haddad. Fast forward to today and there are over 40 people at the new Open Source Innovation Group, which includes 20 developers, devoted full-time to working on upstream projects and helping the inroads of Open Source into Samsung.
Samsung's flagship smartphone will soon be getting the latest version of Android, which Google has been calling its biggest mobile software update yet.
