The best of Linux - made on a Mac
The Linux Foundation has released a video of what it sees as the 2012 highlights for Linux - but the presence of decent video-creation and editing software running on Linux does not seem to be one of them.
Else, why did the Foundation choose to use a Mac to make this video? Is it meant to rub in the fact that Linux still lacks, in many areas, the spit, polish and ease-of-use that Apple boasts of? Or is it because the man running the show, Jim Zemlin, has a ready defence when asked about it? Zemlin never responds to inquiries and his defence is like that of Microsoft's famous "security through obscurity" approach. Or like Manuel in Fawlty Towers - "I know nothing."
The Foundation appears to believe that the spread of Android is a good thing - even though there is much that is not open about this mobile operating system.
