@Bass: Looks interesting top 10 list. It is very nice to see projects build on these new technologies, and of course this is just the beginning ...
@Bass: Can't say I'm using it much but I have tried it couple times in Fedora. Doesn't take even a minute to run Linux distro in the Docker container.
installation: 'sudo dnf install docker-io'
start: 'sudo systemctl start docker'
run Fedora in Docker: 'sudo docker run -i -t fedora /bin/bash'
It is nice to see Linux desktops (like GNOME) are going to use container as well.
Those who finds Docker interesting are most likely interested also:

@Michael Butler: I think I/O 2014 has been very nice so far.
New "Material Design" looks very nice to me. The SDK should be available soon (Linux, Windows and OSX) and it is going to be interesting to discuss with our customers about the new design.
We moved from Dalvik to ART some time ago and we have been more than happy about the results.
It is very nice to see Android IVI and TV efforts. I hope I will be able to work on Android and Tizen TV/IVI projects in near future.
@Richard.Hein:Yes they did but they have tons of work ahead. DK2 1080p is just a beginning. And I very much hope they are able to work independently.
If one of these bigger companies "had to" buy OR Facebook wasn't the worst possible choice. To me it would have been Microsoft or Apple since they would have killed Linux support instantly.
Palmer Luckey: "Why would we want to sell to someone like MS or Apple? So they can tear the company apart and use the pieces to build out their own vision of virtual reality, one that fits whatever current strategy they have? Not a chance."
Well, to me there's still too many open questions to be able to make my mind what I think about this. But at a first impression is quite positive to me. Oculus Rift should be safe financially at least for now, so they can drive VR forward as planned which is most important at this point.
I don't have Facebook account and it seems I don't need one to use Oculus Rift either.
@Bass: I have not seen any information about the price yet. The controller seems to be still in heavy development stage so I guess it's price is still pretty much unknown. Other manufacturers should make their own versions of the controllers which most likely have different price tags according to features they will provide.
Other VALVe/Steam related news:
Steam Client Update (In-Home streaming). I heard it's still using software to encode/decode so the performance is still not as good as it is going to be.
It's very nice to see how VALVe and the community is collaborating.
I'm not sure what would be the best way to measure it but I would say they share code a lot. Sure, Android on phones has some closed source applications installed. Nothing prevents someone to improve the applications found from AOSP or starting from scratch.
You can download AOSP and run it on some phone, development board (PandaBoard, BeagleBoard, etc.) or an emulator.
Community is porting Android and ChromeOS for various of new hardware as well. It's nice to see people doing that; having fun with their devices and learning new stuff.
Erisan, I feel that we might be living in a historical moment here. The moment we'll look look back to and say, yes, the end of 2013 was when the Windows hegemony on PC finally began to fall apart. I'm crossing my fingers.
I definitely hope there will be some big changes in near future. Android, Chromebook, SteamOS, Tizen, etc. lots stuff happening - can't wait CES 2014 and WMC 2014
Of course tons of interesting tech is coming for normal Linux distributions to look forward: Wayland, kdbus, etc.
We have no this kind of negative "scroogled" ads here so they are quite confusing. They would make more harm than good for the company.
