Jeremy, of Linux Questions, gave this interesting presentation on the history of Linux. It dates to 2016, but I just ran across it, so it is totally new!

The volume is a bit low at the start but get goods before the first minute.

Have you read the breakthrough novel of the year? When you are done with that, try:

  1. What’s your take on Torvald’s typically blunt assessment of Intel’s “fix” for the Spectre/Meltdown issues?

    I’m not enough of a chip person (as in, not at all) to know whether it is, as he described it, complete and utter garbage.

    On the other hand, I seem to be in the minority when I say I don’t think they are serious issues for single-use machines: the chance of someone using it and getting lucky enough that something important is exposed at just the right time is so low it isn’t worth their effort. I realize servers are a different story.

    1. I have no way of evaluating his comments, but I would not be surprised if they were spot on.
