371: Cabin Fever
Friends join us to discuss Cabin, a proposal that encourages more Linux apps and fewer distros.
Plus, we debate the value that the Ubuntu community brings to Canonical, and share a pick for audiobook fans.

- The Latest On The Linux 5.9 Kernel Regression Stemming From Page Lock Fairness - Phoronix — Last week we reported on a Linux 5.9 kernel regression following benchmarks from Linux 5.0 to 5.9 and there being a sharp drop with the latest development kernel. That kernel regression was bisected to code introduced by Linus Torvalds at the start of the Linux 5.9 kernel cycle. Unfortunately it's not a trivial problem and one still being analyzed in coming up with a proper solution.

- Making apps for Linux, a proposal — I have a few thoughts on this topic, and so does Alan Pope, and so we got chatting and put together a proposal for a programming environment for making simple apps in a way that new developers could easily grasp. We were quite pleased with it as a concept, but: it didn’t get selected for further development. Oh well, never mind. But the ideas still seem good to us, so I think it’s worth publishing the proposal anyway so that someone else has the chance to be inspired by it, or decide they want it to happen.
