127: Linus Torvalds on Apple M1 Mac, Blender, PulseAudio, 25 Years of GIMP

On this episode of This Week in Linux, we’ve got a lot of Audio related news this week. We’ve got a new release from the Digital Audio Workstation, Ardour. A new release of PulseAudio, AV Linux, and we’ve got some interesting news from Fedora about potentially switching to PipeWire. In App News this week, we’ll check out the latest release of Blender and celebrate 25 Years of GIMP. Linus Torvalds commented on using Linux on Apple’s new M1 Mac and we’ll round the show out with a new product from Pine64, a soldering iron, and there has been a distro merge between Sabayon and Funtoo. All that and much more coming up right now on Your Weekly Source for Linux GNews!

  1. Thanks @MichaelTunnell - very enjoyable and informative, as usual!

    I’m looking forward to what happens with the Gnu Image Manipulation Program and its offshoot Glimpse when refactoring is completed. I agree feature addition will become a lot easier then. No surprise about Apple choosing to keep their hardware difficult to access except through their own OS. Their attitude does come across as elitist at times and so they don’t seem to mind staying closed. Up to them, I suppose. Most of the time they just seem to be creating a smaller and smaller niche for themselves, but so be it. The most exciting news for me would be Pipewire adoption. This coupled with Wayland and Btrfs on Fedora could make it revolutionaly on several fronts!
