Subject: The Age Of Pragmatists

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

Pondering the "big questions" is all well and good, but it matters little if words are the only results. To have an effect, the ideas need to be translated into action and Free software did that in a big way. While GNU Hurd may not have gotten very far, the Linux kernel certainly did as did thousands of other Free software projects big and small.

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

Linux ecosystem consists of so many people doing a great job, and it is only natural for someone not to know everyone out there. Many worthy developers are unknown to the majority of users and sometimes their magnificent projects are unused, or underused due to low publicity. Salih Emin is one of those, and his projects are simply very useful especially for the millions of Ubuntu users, so we decided to do this interview and have him explain everything. Enjoy!

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

Earlier in the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin" development cycle I noted some performance improvements happening on the ARM side, particularly for Texas Instruments OMAP4. Namely, Ubuntu 12.04 was ARMing up for better performance with ARM hard-float support and the performance becoming more compelling for the PandaBoard ES hardware with proper cpufreq support. In this article is a comparison of the Ubuntu 11.10 and Ubuntu 12.04 ARM performance.
