The Linux Kernel’s New ‘Play Nice’ Patch

Some 60 Linux kernel developers last week adopted a small “patch,” called the “Code of Conflict,” that attempts to set guidelines for discourse in the kernel community and outlines a path for mediation if someone feels abused or threatened. Linux creator Linus Torvalds’ call for improved internal developer relations could be little more than wishful thinking, though.

Balancing Diversity and Creativity in the World of FOSS

One of the advantages of open source software is the diversity that leads to innovative approaches to improve the computing environment. But can the diversity go too far? Is it a defining characteristic that kills programming creativity? LinuxInsider spoke with a panel of open source developers about the creative versus destructive nature of the seemingly fractured world of open source.

From the Blogosphere With Love: A FOSSy Farewell

The past week has afforded plenty of fodder for conversation here in the Linux blogosphere: the MintBox Mini; the Steam for Linux file-deletion bug; and the latest in the Systemd saga, for example. However, this week seems like a good time to revisit some classic gems from days gone by — particularly the sweet spot that can be found at the intersection of Linux and Love.

Loving Linux in a Touchscreen World

Well it was a fairly quiet week here in the Linux blogosphere, as much of the mainstream tech world staggered directly out of their New Year’s revelries and into the halls of CES.
Not that Linux didn’t have a presence at the gargantuan show, mind you. It was there, all right — not just in phones but in TVs, smartwatches and cars, to name just a few examples.

Linuxy Hopes and Dreams for an Inferno-Free 2015

It’s the dawn of a new year here in the Linux blogosphere, and that means the power is in our hands to make 2015 better than the last one. At least in theory, the Systemd Inferno possibly, could be extinguished over these next 12 months; Devuan could thrive — or not; and Linux in general could see its best year yet. What actually will happen? That is the subject of more than a few musings.

FOSS’ Shining Moments of 2014

Well we’re into the last few days of 2014 here in the Linux blogosphere, and fortunately the tequila supplies down at the Broken Windows Lounge continue to hold strong. The weather outside may be frightful, but the refreshments — like the software — remain nothing short of delightful. It didn’t take long for bloggers to slip into a sentimental mood as they reminisced about the waning year.

The Curious Case of the Disappearing Distros

Well the holidays are pretty much upon us at last here in the Linux blogosphere, and there’s nowhere left to hide. The next two weeks or so promise little more than a blur of forced social occasions and too-large meals, punctuated only by occasional respite down at the Broken Windows Lounge. Perhaps that’s why Linux bloggers seized with such glee upon a good old-fashioned mystery.
