150: Audacity Acquired, Kdenlive, Proton, IBM 2nm Chips, 1 Million Linux Commits

On this episode of This Week in Linux, we’ve got a ton of news to cover with some big news from Audacity in that the project has been acquired by the Muse Group, Ubuntu 16.04 Reaches End of LIfe . . . well sort of. Then we’ll check out some great hardware news from IBM & also from Star Labs. In App News this week, we’ve got new releases from MusE Digital Audio Workstation, Kdenlive 21.04, QEMU 6.0 and more. We’re also going to do a follow up to some news last week related to Humble Bundle and so much more including new version of WINE and Proton and even a milestone for the Linux kernel to celebrate.

  1. Thanks @MichaelTunnell - really enjoyed this, as usual :slight_smile:

    Favourite jokes of the episode: The ones about developers ending a project so it could live on a farm and run and play; and the one about TWiL while you grill :laughing:

    Seriously though, I think RISC-V taking off is key to future open source hardware. I’m already quite keen on Linux builds for it. Boards are a bit pricey right now, so I’m sure developers will appreciate this offer. IBM’s 2nm news is also a great breakthrough. Will enjoy seeing how this manifests itself in real hardware in coming years!

  2. On the topic of Audacity I saw a video, from the guy who is now in charge of its design, about it’s new acquisition, history, and interviews with developers here: Who Created Audacity & Why is it Free? - YouTube

    He makes some pretty funny videos about audio and music theory. One of which was aimed at complaining about MuseScore so they made him the lead designer of that project too.
