  • X.Org Server Development Slows To Lowest Point In A Decade

    In 2015 there were just 436 commits for the entire year -- in 2014 there were 923 commits, which was about average recently. The high point of X.Org Server's development was around 2008 when there were 2,114 commits in a single year. Except for 2015, every year saw close to a thousand or more commits going back a decade. In 2004 there were 590 commits while in 2003 there were 125 commits. Of course, prior to 2004 the X.Org Server was technically the XFree86 code-base.

I have been enthusiastically following her posts on Twitter and invited her to share her passion for open education with our readers. I am delighted to share our discussion with you.

Linux 4.10 To Linux 4.15 Kernel Benchmarks

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been enjoying its time on Linux 4.15. In addition to the recent boot time tests and kernel power comparison, here are some raw performance benchmarks looking at the speed from Linux 4.10 through Linux 4.15 Git. With this Broadwell-era Core i7 5600U laptop with 8GB RAM, HD Graphics, and 128GB SATA 3.0 SSD with Ubuntu 17.10 x86_64, the Linux 4.10 through 4.15 Git mainline kernels were benchmarked. Each one was tested "out of the box" and the kernel builds were obtained from the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel archive. Read more
