LWN.net: "The Linux kernel development process stands out in a number of ways; one of those is the fact that there is exactly one person who can commit code to the "official" repository. There are many maintainers looking after various subsystems, but every patch they merge must eventually be accepted by Linus Torvalds..."
Linux User & Developer: "Last month Linus Torvalds released the final 2.6.34 kernel, following a bumpy few weeks that saw a major virtual memory (the subsystem responsible for memory management in-kernel) glitch, the usual round of regressions, and a power outage that knocked vger.kernel.org � the LKML list server � offline for a couple of days."
The H Open: "Most people in the free software world know about the famous �LINUX is obsolete� thread that began on the comp.os.minix newsgroups in January 1992, where Andrew Tanenbaum, creator of the MINIX system that Linus used to learn about operating system design, posted the following rather incendiary comment:"
Make Tech Easier: "Git is the revision control system created by the Linux kernel’s famous Linus Torvalds due to a lack of satisfaction with existing solutions. The main emphasis in the design was on speed, or more specifically, efficiency."
Cyber Cynic: "This would be funny if only there weren't people out there who are fool enough to believe in any anti-Linus lie. I mean, how dead does SCO have to be before its anti-Linux FUD finally disappears into the history books?"
LWN.net: "Since its inception in July of 2009, the Fedora Hall Monitor policy has had mixed reviews. The intent of the policy is to promote more civil discourse on various Fedora mailing lists�to embody the "be excellent to each other" motto that is supposed to govern project members' behavior."
Linus Torvalds has announced that the first Release Candidate in the new Linux kernel 3.16 branch has arrived, marking the beginning of a new development cycle. The Linux kernel development never stops, and only a week after the release of the final version in the 3.15 branch a new one is now available. As you can imagine, this is not something for regular users.
