LXer: This week at LWN: A turning point for GNU libc

Published at LXer:

The kernel may be the core of a Linux system, but neither users nor applications deal with the kernel directly. Instead, almost all interactions with the kernel are moderated through the C library, which is charged with providing a standards-compliant interface to the kernel's functionality. There are a number of C library implementations available, but, outside of the embedded sphere, most Linux systems use the GNU C library, often just called "glibc." The development project behind glibc has a long and interesting history which took a new turn with the dissolution of its steering committee on March 26.
