Interview with Greg Dekoenigsberg - Red Hat Community Architect

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fedora 10 CDs and DVDs came in at half the price, and were of far better 
| quality, and were shipped around the country more cheaply, and the process 
| was just way better.  
| Why was this so? Simple. The "leaders" of a project can be overwhelmed with 
| mundane tasks, and with so much to get done, some tasks just get pushed to 
| the back burner. But if you can find the right volunteer, and if you say to 
| that volunteer "this is your task, and I'm counting on you to do it better 
| than I did," that task becomes *incredibly* important to that volunteer, and 
| they become embarrasingly awesome at it in very short order.     
| When you trust people, and when you expect them to do great things, they 
| will. That's the most inspiring lesson of Fedora, for me, and I continue to 
| learn it over and over again.

Btrfs Benchmarks: Btrfs Is Not Yet The Performance King

,----[ Quote ]
| With the release this week of Fedora 11 Preview, which incorporates
| install-time support for the Btrfs file-system into Red Hat's Anaconda
| installer, we have now delivered our first set of benchmark results for this
| next-generation Linux file-system. Through a horde of disk tests we have
| looked at the Btrfs file-system performance and compared it to that of EXT3,
| EXT4, and XFS. While Btrfs does perform well in some areas, it is not yet the
| performance king for Linux file-systems. As our results show, in some tests
| it even has a hard time competing with the incremental EXT4 file-system.

Btrfs Merged Into Mainline Linux Kernel

The Evolution Of An GNU Project

,----[ Quote ]
| First lets be honest GnoMenu is a fork of another project the "Gnome Vista
| Start Menu" by Chris Hughes. Most hard core Linux users looked at the menu
| Chris did as a cheap Vista look alike. In some ways it was but Chris also
| stated that other menu designs were possible yet no one really bothered to
| pay attention. Well almost nobody. Enter Helder Fraga who took Chris' work
| and forked it into GnoMenu.

| appealed for its inclusion in the Linux kernel.
