Linus Torvalds needs to shut up about Apple

Filed under

More than three years later and poor Linus still gets grief over $#!^ he said. In part, thanks to David Gewirtz’s post that time forgot referring to Linus’ comments regarding Apple’s filesystem. The post made me start thinking (always a dangerous thing to do) and I came up with the notion that Linus Torvalds needs to shut up about Apple. He should probably stick to kernel programming. Or, use his powers to take jabs at Microsoft. But, Apple is off limits, even to Linus. And, before you raise your hackles, I’m a Linux guy but I have to draw the line at pointless Apple jabs–even ones that are three years old.

First of all, Apple’s filesystem is not ‘complete and utter crap.’ It’s built on 25-year old technology that’s stood the test of time, through multiple OS versions and a change in hardware technology culminating in a now UNIX-based architecture.

GNOME Shell vs. KDE Plasma Graphics Tests On Wayland vs. X.Org Server

A premium member this week had requested some benchmarks of openSUSE Tumbleweed when looking at the performance of KDE Plasma vs. GNOME Shell in some open-source graphics/gaming tests while also looking at the Wayland vs. X.Org Server performance. With KDE Plasma 5.12 that openSUSE Tumbleweed has picked up, there is much better Wayland session support compared to previous releases. While KDE developers aren't yet ready to declare their Wayland session the default, in my experience so far it's been working out very well but still routinely will find application crashes in Kate and the like when testing under the KWin's Wayland compositor.
