Big claims were made this week that “Linux on the desktop is dead”. Are mobile devices making Linux irrelevant? Is the year of Desktop Linux doomed to never arrive? Or is Linux JUST getting started? We discuss!

THEN – News from the Ubuntu Development Summit shines light on features for the next release, and why Fedora wants to reorganize the file system!

PLUS SO MUCH MORE!

All this week on, The Linux Action Show!

Is Desktop Linux Dead?

  • I do think it’s going to take a lot longer than many Linux evangelists are willing to admit. 5, 10, maybe 20 years? As cloud computing becomes so dominant, perhaps the commercial vendors will over a long long time, start to pull out of the Market.
  • Linux on the desktop will be around as long as people care about it, and there’s plenty of people that do.
  • Relatively small amount of developer effort being put into the desktop stack as compared to more server oriented things like the kernel.

  • There are enough Linux enthusiast and professionals to keep the community healthy for the foreseeable future.
  • Many rely on Linux where it counts – Automobiles, Medical Equipment, Air Traffic Control, Stock Markets, National Defense Satellites, GPS, Manufacturing, and countless other critical systems that make our lives better every day.

Chris’ thoughts:

  • Windows 8 will introduce the new Metro UI. Many end-users/companies may wish to keep there current hardware, and swap the OS to Linux.
  • Vendors may find solutions like Ubuntu + Unity are their best route to avoid vendor ecosystem lock-in.
  • New data shows slow steady growth, this seems consistent with an organically marketed OS: Windows market share slides in October as Mac, Linux gain
  • Linux’s 60% share on servers (I think that is low too) continues to drive it to become a stable secure platform. This work is directly beneficial to making a safe and reliable desktop.

News:

David Gewirtz

He worked on a project called Frontier Kernel, he added sqlite and mysql support to it. So he is a “kernel” developer, but in the larger context of OS kernel development.

Errata & Feedback:

  • Felix Albrecht – Just saw your review and liked it a lot (more action like back in the days ;P), but you complained about two points which are not correct (or I misunderstood)
  • if you configure backup, there is an option ready to backup directly to your UbuntuOne storage
  • in the Ubuntu Software Center, there is an option under File -> “Sync between computers” to sync your installed applications between your computers using UbuntuOne
  • Jupiter Colony is a steaming pile of dog crap! Looking for someone to run it for us and make it more respectable!
  • From where i can find really old LAS podcasts?
  • Make ubuntu gnome3 look more like gnome2 (erroneously said allowed gnome2)
  • 7 Best GNOME Shell Extensions, Install in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric via PPA
  • VirtualBox: There are no longer a open source and proprietary version. There is only the GPL version which can be extended by an optional proprietary plugin. See https://www.virtualbox.org/wik…
  • VirtualBox correction In short: You can use the version from your distro repo and just download the extension file if you need the extra features.
