That is a gigantic and awesome article. Some information was even new to myself and I already thought I knew the history of Linux and Unix.
Though one thing I am not sure about in the article is about the Mate project. I thought it was originally forked from Gnome 2 by an Argentinian Arch Linux user (therefore the reference to that popular Argentinian or Brazilian beverage) and not Karapetsas himself. Although he is indeed one of the founders, main devs and maintainers of the Mate desktop in Debian I thought he is from Italy.

Anyway great content.

Btrfs is also very interesting as now it gains more coverage because of Fedora’s decision and funny how I am personally doing a trial with openSUSE using Btrfs as file system. :slight_smile:

Hey @vinylninja, thanks for that. I believe you might be right about MATE. I will change it, appreciate the comment!

Yes, I also just threw Fedora Rawhide in a VM to check out how Btrfs is working. So far, so good!
