Discussing free software syncronicity

,----[ Quote ]
| I have never suggested that *everyone* should release at the same time. In
| fact, at Ubuntu we have converged around the idea of releasing about one
| month *after* our biggest predictable upstream, which happens to be GNOME.
| And similarly, the fact that the kernel has their own relatively predictable
| cycle is very useful. We don’t release Ubuntu on the same day as a kernel
| release that we will ship, of course, but we are able to plan and communicate
| meaningfully with the folks at kernel.org as to which version makes sense for
| us to collaborate around.

Ubuntu's Pipe Dream : True Free Software Syncronicity

,----[ Quote ]
| From a selfish journalist point of view - Shuttleworth's version of
| syncronicity would also be terribly boring. I mean instead of being able to
| write about Ubuntu, Fedora and OpenSUSE releases on their own specific
| release dates and give each their due - I'd have one release day for all and
| lump them all together.

Distros Don’t Drive Development

,----[ Quote ]
| Lots of press and people focus on Linux distributions when they check out
| what happens in Linux land. This and that distro come in new releases and
| they offer this and that brand new feature. This is also true of the many
| linux podcasts. They give credit to distros for new things that pop up. *
