The best of Linux - made on a Mac

Filed under

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.

said we where hacked.


Amen. The guy is an idiot. Please stop giving him publicity.

re: Sam Varghese?

Sharing in open source and swag

This is something that most people don’t realize when they hear words “open source”. And I feel it is important to understand that open source doesn’t include just programming, though it originated in the context of computer software development. But is also about the way of life and what is called the open source way. Which means that to contribute to open source projects you do not have to code! (You might if you want to ;) ). Just remember that it is important to share and sharing is caring. Read more
