  1. Thanks, everyone. I really loved this episode for its excellent balance of information and fun. I’m really glad you laid-to-rest the notion of “Linux desktop is dead”, which seems ridiculous indeed to me, for many of the reasons you mention. I also thought @kernellinux’s take on it was really impressive, including the idea of mobile devices potentially dominating in future in some quarters, together with why, though this isn’t likely to kill Linux. If anything the one alternative kernel I am interested in would have to be the Redox project to build an OS in Rust, and this episode covers inclusion of Rust in the Linux kernel too. I really do think it’s the next-generation language for systems development. Also I am glad that Linus is open to it, as from what I’ve understood, he really never liked C++. I still think C is the natural language for very core parts of the kernel, together with assembler where needed, but I think a lot of the work now is on device drivers and certainly Rust seems like an excellent language for those. Just my thoughts :slight_smile:

  2. I’d rather have a “dead” desktop than win10/win11 “zombie” desktop pretending to be alive and well.

  3. Huge smile on my face, thank you so much for taking this topic on.

    I think Ryan hit it pretty good, these discussion are happening with or without us and I think it’s good to have DLN taking a seat at the table.

  4. Just in case the Linux Desktop IS dead, I went ahead and had Tux engraved on my headstone. :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

    Terrific episode (What I caught of it while working today.) Now I’m going to have to give it another listen tomorrow because I could have sworn someone said something about Linux was not dead, but WAS getting some RUST on it. Sounded very philosophical, but I was in and out of the truck so much, I must have missed a great segment.

    (By the way, has anyone ever thanked you lately for making these podcasts available!?!? They make the work week fly by!)

    I have Tux tattooed on my upper arm. :slight_smile:

    And a couple of burning d20’s on the other arm. (yes, I’m a nerd)
