Jim Zemlin: We don’t need to declare the year of the Linux desktop anymore. This week alone was pretty darn good. Having spent the week at Computex, the place where you see all the things, it is clear that Linux has a critical role in client computing.

Linux

kev009.com: The recent bruhaha surrounding Xen on LKML is really disheartening. Essentially, the Linux kernel devs are at a disconnect with users. Some are proposing narrow-minded ideas such as DROPPING software paravirt or merging Xen as a whole into the kernel.

I pulled the Acer over to my part of the counter and booted the Linux Mint KDE LTS I keep for just such purposes.

A few minutes later, I pulled a pen from my pocket and wrote down the number he needed and slid it back over to him with his laptop. Read more
