Celebrate 20 Years of Linux With Us

Twenty years ago this summer, Linus Torvalds made a bold decision to share his operating system with the world. Not long after that, he chose to license it under the General Public License. Nothing in computing has been the same since.

In fact, today Linux is the largest collaborative development project in the history of computing, which means that the 20th Anniversary of Linux is an opportunity for the community to come together in celebration of this great success story and in collaboration on how it will define the next 20 years of Linux.

Announcing the 2011 Linux.com Gurus

Today is one of my favorite days of the year: the day we reveal the annual Linux.com Gurus. The 2011 Linux.com Gurus represent the most active members of the Linux.com community and through their contributions the site, they help other Linux users to locate and share valuable information and they are able to market their skills and position themselves for potential job opportunities.

LF Collaboration Summit Preview: QuIC's Mark Charlebois

When I think back to the first Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit, I start to realize how much work the community has gotten done over the last five years. Since meeting at Google's headquarters in June 2007, we've seen real advancements for Linux in super computing, cloud computing and virtualization. There are really interesting things that have happened around high-availablity (HA), for example, that you will see first-hand at the upcoming Collaboration Summit.

Android kernel wakelock solution

In two separate email threads this week, I have been asked about the status of the Android wakelock issue that has been described in the past. It turns out that people don't realize that the Linux kernel now supports this type of locking, and has for a few releases now.

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.

2.6.38: making things Just Work

Linus Torvalds announced the release of the 2.6.38 kernel on March 14. Like its predecessors, 2.6.38 incorporates a lot of work - over 9,500 patches from over 1,100 developers. There are a number of useful changes, including some important scalability improvements, but, in my mind, the most interesting theme behind this kernel is that of making advanced features Just Work.
