English: Hi, I am Thorsten. This post is pinned to the top of my stream and explains a few basics how I use this account.
German: Hallo, ich bin Thorsten. Dieser Post klebt ganz oben in meinem Stream und erläutert in der zweiten Hälfte kurz, wie ich diesen Account nutze.

English, 2nd part:
I'm from Germany and sometimes post German content here. If you do not want to see it unfollow the collections "c't/heise.de & ich", "Linux und Open-Source-Software" and "Das Leben, das Universum und der ganze Rest". BTW: I put all my posts into a collection, which enable you to unfollow topics you have no interest in.

Whoami? I'm a Fedora developer since its early days and quite interested in the Linux kernel. Since more than ten years now I'm working as a technical Editor for Heise Medien and write for +c't magazin, +heise online, and +heise open. Nevertheless: This is an entirely personal Google+ account, thus opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

German, 2nd part:
Ich bewege mich viel in der Open-Source-Welt; Englisch ist dort Lingua Franca, daher sind auch viele der Beiträge hier in eben dieser Sprache verfasst. Wer diese nicht sehen will, muss alle Collections außer "c't/heise.de & ich", "Linux und Open-Source-Software" und "Das Leben, das Universum und der ganze Rest" abwählen. Alle meine Beiträge sind einer Collection zugeordnet, damit ihr gezielt selbst entscheiden könnt, was ihr seht und was nicht.

Web bin ich eigentlich? Ich bin ein Fedora-Entwickler der ersten Stunde und habe ein großes Interesse am Linux-Kernel und andeer Hardware-naher Linux-Software. Ich arbeite seit mehr als zehn Jahren als technischer Redakteur für Heise Medien und schreibe dort für +c't magazin, +heise online und +heise open. Ich nutze diesen Google+-Account allerdings ausschließlich privat, alle hier getätigten Meinungen sind also meine eigenen.

One of the most useful features of any version control system is the ability to "undo" your mistakes. In Git, "undo" can mean many slightly different things. When you make a new commit, Git stores...

More goodies for Wayland and Mir landed in Git this past week, thanks to William Hua, +Jonas Ådahl, and +Carlos Garnacho — plus some theme fixes for the old GtkCalendar widget, courtesy of +Lapo Calamandrei.
In this last week, the master branch of GTK+ has seen 22 commits, with 6199 lines added and 1763 lines removed. Planning and status. Matthias Clasen released GTK+ 3.21.4 and GLib 2.49.4, two new developers' snapshots. Notable changes. William Hua started merging the patches for relative ...

Der #Linux #kernel 4.7 ist da. Unten der Link zur Kurzmeldung auf +heise online. Alle Details gibt es im Kernel-Log des +c't magazin unter http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Die-Neuerungen-von-Linux-4-7-3217845.html Das ist das Kernel-Log, das in den letzten Wochen mehrfach aktualisiert wurde; zum Release haben wir die wichtigsten Neuerungen nach vorne gezogen, aber von solch kleinen Umstellungen und einigen minimalen Anpassungen nichts neues mehr hinzugefügt. #meingeschreibsel

Der Kernel soll das Stromsparpotenzial moderner Prozessoren in Zukunft stärker ausschöpfen. Linux 4.7 bringt Treiber für AMDs neue Radeon-Grafikchips mit und unterstützt rund 500 weitere Hardware-Komponenten.

"To deliver the best of predictability on real-time workloads, the Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Real Time provides state-of-art on determinism for the bullet-proof RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) platform. The availability of this product raises some questions, like: Do I need a real-time operating system? Or What are the benefits and drawbacks of running the RHEL for Real Time? This article aims to clarify how to leverage the success of your business using a real-time operating system, and what kind of workloads or type of industry can benefit from RT.“

Red Hat Summit is over, but the learning never ends. See what you missed and catch up on slide presentations and videos from the event.

Linus writes: "So, after a slight delay due to my travels, I'm back, and 4.7 is out.[…] And obviously, this means that the merge window for 4.8 is open. Judging by the linux-next contents, that's going to be a bigger release than the current one (4.7 really was fairly calm, I blame at least partly summer in the northern hemisphere)." http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/2272282 #linux #kernel
