OS

softpedia: Microsoft software versus open source software has been, and still is a never-ending debatable issue. Both camps have harsh supporters who claim their favorite is the best.

beranger: The most recent interview with Linus (by the publishing date) couldn't pass unnoticed: Linus Torvalds talks future of Linux. Torvalds looking naïve, mediocre and uninformed! It's at the same time: nice, intriguing, and outrageous.

Kernel Space: Linux, Graphics

  • Mux Controller Subsystem Proposed For Linux 4.12
    A new subsystem has been proposed for staging in the Linux 4.12 kernel. Peter Rosin has requested Greg KH pull in the mux controller subsystem for the Linux 4.12 kernel. He explained of this new subsystem, "This adds a new mux controller subsystem with an interface for accessing mux controllers, along with two drivers providing the interface (gpio and adg792) and two consumers (iio and i2c). This is done in such a way that several consumers can independently access the same mux controller if one controller controls several multiplexers, thus allowing sharing."
