Help make the LF Collab Summit Panel discussion not suck

In a few weeks, I'm leading a panel discussion at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit about "Hardware Success Stories in the Linux Ecosystem". I'm lucky to have a great set of participants from a bunch of companies with a wide range of experience with Linux, so it should be a lot of fun.

Participating are representatives from Intel, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments.

My email bot escaped

As noted before, I get a lot of email every day. A few years ago it got to the point that the number of individual queries coming in was making it so that I really didn't have much time to do much else than answer them. So after messing with some perl scripts I came up with an email bot that sits and watches my inbox for messages it can answer by pointing people at the proper place to ask the question in the first place.

Samsung Laptops and Linux

Finally, after many years of people asking for this, Linux can now properly support all known Samsung laptop devices. This means we can now handle backlight control, wifi button issues,and the weird "performance mode" keys as well as some of the other function keys.

Ralink in-kernel drivers

Instead of the old boring "here's what drivers are being merged and deleted" and the like as I've posted in the past, I thought I'd just write about one specific project that has recently gone public that I think is a great indicator of how far the Linux Driver Project has come these days.

From the very beginning, Novell has been extremely supportive of the Linux Driver Project, allowing me to work on it on company time, and has encouraged companies they partner with to participate in it, to get Linux drivers into the main kernel tree. One such company recently has been Ralink.
