Open Supply Summit 2017 is happening nowadays. Linux and Open Supply biggies from around the globe have flocked to LA to wait this tournament.
Jim Zemlin, the chief director of The Linux Basis, introduced within the tournament, “2017 is formally the 12 months of the Linux desktop!”. That is the tweet from reliable Linux Basis account:
Zemlin: 2017 is formally the 12 months of the Linux desktop! #OSSummit
— The Linux Basis (@linuxfoundation) September 11, 2017
This will have to no longer come as a wonder. The top of Linux Basis calling 2017 the 12 months of Linux desktop, what may be able to be flawed with that?
However right here’s a catch! Jim Zemlin doesn’t use a Linux desktop. Possibly, he hasn’t used a Linux desktop in years. And the worst factor is that he ready his slides to announce 2017 the 12 months of Linux desktop on an Apple tool:
four years later, @jzemlin remains to be rocking an iPad and doing his slides underneath MacOS

Matthew Garret is a safety developer at Google and works widely on Linux. And he is similar one who has noticed Jim Zemlin the use of Apple’s macOS two times in closing 4 years.
Is it in point of fact a large deal that Linux Basis head doesn’t use Linux desktop?
Possibly I’m growing useless controversy. Possibly this merely will have to be overlooked. In the end, he has the liberty of selection, freedom to select his working machine. Isn’t it?
I imply could be a large deal if Coca Cola govt beverages Pepsi or if Apple’s head, Tim Cook dinner, unveils the following iPhone whilst the use of a Microsoft Floor tool?
It’s going to be! After all, it is going to be.
Whilst Linux lovers international attempt to inspire folks to start out the use of Linux on their desktop, it’s disheartening to look the top of Linux Basis no longer the use of Linux on his desktop.
Linux Basis doesn’t care in regards to the Linux desktop?
I’m really not the primary one to note this. FOSS Power has already written an editorial about Linux Basis’s apathy in opposition to desktop Linux.
In recent years, Linux Basis has targeted an excessive amount of at the server aspect. Cloud, container and the whole lot else that powers community infrastructure and it has performed a very good process on this regard.
Which is ok as a result of Linux laws that area. However with the intention to that, Linux Basis has left out the desktop Linux it sort of feels. Understand that they offer unfastened Chromebook with their Linux coaching classes, no longer a ‘actual Linux laptop’.
It’s no longer like The Linux Basis is brief on cash (a minimum of that’s what I feel). They’ve club plans the place large corporates sign up for the board by means of paying thousands and thousands of greenbacks. Then why is desktop Linux left out?
Handiest Linux Basis can resolution that.
What do you recall to mind it?
What do you recall to mind all of the episode? Am I studying an excessive amount of between the strains or my worries are legit?
Do percentage your ideas within the remark phase underneath.
