Ben Cotton: Fedora and Future of Operating Systems
Join the Meeting for going to https://lufthans.bigbluemeeting.com/b/plu-yuk-7xx on Apr. 8th at 7pm MST
Operating systems are not boring, but they’re no longer the end of the Linux development pipeline. As interest shifts up the stack to containers and other abstraction technologies, what are operating system makers to do? This talk describes how the Fedora Project views the future of the Linux distribution, why it’s still relevant, and how we’re going to get there. The operating system may not get the attention it used to, but it still plays an important role in providing the foundation that modern applications are built on.
