    The Latest On The Linux 5.9 Kernel Regression Stemming From Page Lock Fairness - Phoronix — Last week we reported on a Linux 5.9 kernel regression following benchmarks from Linux 5.0 to 5.9 and there being a sharp drop with the latest development kernel. That kernel regression was bisected to code introduced by Linus Torvalds at the start of the Linux 5.9 kernel cycle. Unfortunately it's not a trivial problem and one still being analyzed in coming up with a proper solution.Linux Mailing List - Re: Kernel Benchmarking
    Making apps for Linux, a proposal — I have a few thoughts on this topic, and so does Alan Pope, and so we got chatting and put together a proposal for a programming environment for making simple apps in a way that new developers could easily grasp. We were quite pleased with it as a concept, but: it didn’t get selected for further development. Oh well, never mind. But the ideas still seem good to us, so I think it’s worth publishing the proposal anyway so that someone else has the chance to be inspired by it, or decide they want it to happen.Direct link to Core Contributors Downloads Page

Shills for their friends

The podcast contains some useful information to Linux enthusiasts but listeners should be aware that the host uses his position to promote his friends and technologies that cooperate with him while bashing his perceived enemies or those who’s agendas compete with the agendas of his friends. It makes it aggravating to listen to at times because he tends to go on and on in pushing his vendettas. Fast forward through his self-important diatribes until you get to an interview or some other relevant information.

Informative and fun

Lots of great info presented in a easy to listen to way. I look forward to each episode with anticipation.
