Red Hat's senior software engineering manager, GNOME / Fedora developer Christian Schaller, recentlyDispatchSome interesting and bold predictions were published in the coming 2018, and their views also led to community disputes.
Schaller believes that 2018:
The Linux community will basically use Meson as a building system.
Rust main low-level programming to replace the C / C.
The apple is declining at the PC end.
The traditional Linux sub service technology for desktop applications is replaced by Flatpak.
Linux graphics support big breakthroughs, and by the end of 2018, Aspyr and Feral's game performance on Linux is expected to be aligned to Windows.
The H.265 format is considered to be a failure, and all new codecs will be open source or exempt from royalties.
What do you think of these predictions? Comments are welcome.
