Subject: 'I'm no visionary': Torvalds up for $1.3m life-changing gong

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Open-source poster child Linus Torvalds, who kickstarted development of the Linux operating system kernel, has been nominated for the €1m Millennium Technology Prize - but says he's "no visionary" and is surprised Linux has been so successful. Torvalds and stem cell engineer Dr Shinya Yamanaka are finalists for the gong - one of the world's top awards for science and handed out once every two years by the Technology Academy of Finland. The award, worth £817k ($1.3m), recognises technology innovations that improve the quality of human life.

Subject: Will Fedora End Linux Distro Naming?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Linux distro names started to get 'weird' when Ubuntu arrived on the scenes with Weirdly Wacky African-inspired Animal names. Other distros, notably Fedora have taken a more democratic approach where community members vote on the release name, but that could soon change.

Subject: This week at LWN: LFCS 2012: X and Wayland

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Keith Packard has been working on the X window system since the early days, but more recently has been doing lots of work to enable its replacement. X has long held the position as the way that graphics is done on Linux (and other Unix) systems, but that is changing. He came to the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit, which was held April 3-5 in San Francisco, to talk about the Wayland protocol and the Weston server, and how they could interoperate with X. Wayland looks to be an interesting change for desktop graphics on Linux. Wayland is an alternative window system, and is part of long-term effort to integrate more modern technology into the Linux desktop. But there are lots of existing X applications out there that need a migration path so that they don't have to be rewritten. That's part of the plan too, Packard said.

Subject: HealthCheck Fedora - Where's the beef?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Fedora 17 is to be known as Beefy Miracle, which is a contentious break from the Fedora tradition of giving each release a name that shares a relationship with the name of the previous release. Beefy Miracle's only link with Verne (Fedora 16) is that both were proposed as names for Fedora 16. The virtue of the name is that it is a meme that has been circulating for some time, and is meant to be a bit of fun. "The user will be amused by the constant presence of the Hot Dog. The mustard indicates progress."

Subject: Google Stops Supporting Picasa For Linux

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Picasa for Linux isn't a native Linux application and instead, it uses WINE which comes bundled with it (so it doesn't require the user to install WINE). Well, even this Wine Picasa for Linux has been deprecated by Google.
