Linux reaches out to hobbyist developers

Filed under
Linux

Theodore "Ted" T'so, a leading Linux kernel developer, announced that, "The Linux Kernel Summit Program Committee would like to put out a call for hobbyists. This year, we have up to three places to give to people who do Linux Kernel development as a hobby rather than a profession." The foundation's definition of "hobbyist" is anyone who doesn't get paid to work on Linux.

This year's Linux Kernel Summit will be held in Edinburgh from October 23 to 25. T'so continued, "Since most top kernel developers are not hobbyists these days, this is your opportunity to make up for what we're missing. As we recognize most hobbyists don't have the resources to attend conferences, we're offering, as part of the normal kernel summit travel fund processes, travel reimbursement as part of being selected to attend."

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.
