The Linux Community - Bringin' it...

Filed under
Linux

It took me a while to grasp it...this "global community" thing. Silly me.

The HeliOS Project, some would argue, is a local effort fueled by a handful of people who want to make a difference. Their ability to do what they do may noteworthy but after all, it's still local.

Is that what you think?

Silly you.

See, just one of our efforts, a 25 computer learning center in East Austin was put together by local people who volunteer for the HeliOS Project. And trust me, the people that worked that day to make this center happen busted their asses...in near 100 degree heat and carrying 90 pound CRT's over 100 feet to get them set up. But we got it done.

In order to do that, we not only had to count on caring volunteers, we counted on a world-wide community to put together the distro that works best for us.

Btrfs For Linux 4.3 Has TRIM & RAID 5/6 Fixes

While the F2FS and EXT4 updates for Linux 4.3 weren't too meaty, there's a bit more going on in the Btrfs camp. Chris Mason sent in his Btrfs file-system updates today for the Linux 4.3 kernel merge window. Within the Btrfs updates this round is a TRIM patch to fix some corner cases, RAID 5 and RAID6 fixes, support for new blkio controllers, and various other fixes and code clean-ups.
