How to apply 'release early, release often' to build a better brand

opensource.com - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 15:00

The importance of open source—and specifically the maxim "release early, release often" (RERO)—can hardly be overstated. 

This approach born at the command line has impacted the world as organizations of every shape and size discover what open, collaborative processes can do. Look around. The evidence is everywhere: on our phones, in our cars, in schools and hospitals.

ZFS On Linux Has Figured Out A Way To Restore SIMD Support On Linux 5.0+

Phoronix - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 05:48
