Vanilla Kernel or Vanilla Software

阅读一个2008年的帖子的时候, 遇到一个词 vanilla kernel, 很是迷惑, 这到底是啥 Linux. 先去查了一下这个词: vanilla: 香草. 香草内核? 不管你想的是什么, 我第一个想到的就是香草冰激凌. 那么 vanilla Linux 到底是什么呢?

先去 google 了一把, 发现大家和我一样困惑, 都问 vanilla Linux 到底是啥?

原来 Vanilla Linux 是指 http://www.kernel.org/ 上维护的官方 Linux 内核. 主要强调它没有经过任何改动, 是原封不动的官方版本.

同时在在 wiki 上专门有个 Vanilla software 的词条, 专门解释了什么是 Vanilla software. 就是在计算机行业里, 专门指没有经过定制, 改动的硬件, 软件, 算法等.

In computer science, vanilla is the term used to refer when computer
software and sometimes also other computing-related systems like
computer hardware or algorithms are not customized from their original
form, i.e., they are used without any customizations or updates
applied to them.[1] Vanilla software has become a widespread de facto
industry standard, widely used by businesses and individuals.

为什么叫做香草呢?

wiki 上也写了, 就跟冰激凌的口味一样, 香草口味代表默认的, 最原本的.

The term comes from the traditional standard flavor of ice cream,
vanilla.[2] According to Eric S. Raymond's The New Hacker's
Dictionary, "vanilla" means more "default" than "ordinary"
