Why some open source crosses the chasm and some falls in

,----[ Quote ]
| Important examples are to be found in the 
| world of open source. Linux crossed the 
| chasm on servers. It failed to do so on 
| desktops. Yet Android, a Google-developed 
| Linux distro, seems fated to succeed.


Thoughts on 2.6.34

,----[ Quote ]
| So, as most people will have heard, the 
| 2.6.34 kernel was released on May 16. Back 
| in February, I was predicting a mid-May 
| release, so I hit it almost exactly. That 
| says nothing about my prediction skills, 
| though (which are horrible) and a lot 
| about how the kernel development process 
| is going. It has become a very 
| predictable, nearly boring affair.


The First DRM Pull Request For Linux 2.6.35 Kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux 2.6.34 kernel was released only 
| three days ago, but David Airlie has 
| emailed Linus Torvalds and the Linux 
| Kernel Mailing List with the first DRM 
| pull request for the Linux 2.6.35 kernel. 


SUSE Linux Is Hooking Up With Btrfs Too

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora was the first tier-one Linux 
| distribution shipping with support for 
| optionally installing to a Btrfs file-
| system for the past year, but in recent 
| weeks the adoption rate of Btrfs looks 
| like it will be quickly rising. Fedora 13 
| is extending the Btrfs support to offer 
| system rollback support by where a file-
| system snapshot is created via Btrfs each 
| time a yum transaction takes place. Red 
| Hat recently released the first public 
| beta of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 and 
| it includes Ananconda installation support 
| for RHEL6 onto Btrfs, MeeGo will be using 
| Btrfs by default in this distribution that 
| marries Maemo and Moblin, and Ubuntu is 
| making Btrfs plans where Btrfs may become 
| the default file-system in Ubuntu 10.10. 
| Novell / openSUSE is also getting in bed 
| with Btrfs. 



Community Feedback Helps Make Linux.com Even Better

,----[ Quote ]
| The annual Linux.com Planning meeting took
| place at the Linux Foundation Collaboration
| Summit last month. It was a great opportunity
| to meet face-to-face with some of the most
| active Linux.com community members and to
| understand what kinds of things are working
| and not working on the site. We even had some
| hard-core contributors who dialed in for the
| four-hour session!
