Automakers have focused on the In-Vehicle-Infotainment (IVI) System as their first target for open source software collaboration, specifically using Linux. Here are five reasons this approach makes sense.
Linus, has dived in to save the day. Where did the robot come from? What is it's purpose? Can the Iron Penguin stand against it?
Find out next time. Same penguin-time, same penguin-channel.
P.S. I wasn't too keen on inserting Google glass into another comic so close on the heels of the last one, but it made the most sense to slip it in to replace Jarvis from the Iron Man movies.
Also, credit where it is due:
The basic idea for the suit came from a photoshop entry on freakingnews.com.
I freely admit to having shamelessly cherry picked quotes from IM1 and 2 and mashed them together. Just thought I would throw those out there before someone tries to troll me about it. :)
The last year has been a whirlwind of activity for Apache CloudStack. Citrix proposed CloudStack for the Apache Incubator in April of 2012, and just over a year later we're gearing up for a second collaboration conference – this time in Santa Clara, CA, from June 23-25.
If you’ve ever dreamed of working directly with Linux creator Linus Torvalds, Greg Kroah-Hartman, Ted T’so or any of the other Linux luminaries, you could work your way up through the ranks of kernel developers submitting patches and fixing bugs. Or you could work as a systems administrator on The Linux Foundation’s IT team, managing the servers that they use every day to build the largest collaborative software development project in the world.
There are many products that let you run Linux on ARM and are not targeted at the mobile market. The ODROID-U2 is an extremely small form factor ARM-based computer that packs enough grunt to replace a modest desktop.
The best Linux applications and tools for enterprise systems admininstrators and developers can be found in three major areas: continuous build, configuration management/ provisioning and version control.
See how easy it is to setup a dual boot to Fedora 18 on your recent model MacBook Air (MBA). You don't need to install custom boot loaders or touch the internal SSD that contains OSX at all. Instead, take advantage of a high speed USB 3 pen drive as your Linux boot disk. After booting Fedora, graphics and wifi work without any extra tinkering. With the higher end modern USB 3.x pen drives disk performance doesn't need to crawl either.
Linus Torvalds made a Mother's Day gift to the world in the form of the 3.10-rc1 kernel prepatch. With this release, the merge window for the 3.10 development cycle has closed, so we know which features to expect this time around.
The Debian project earlier this month put the finishing touches on their latest release: Debian 7.0, code named "Wheezy." This release marks the availability of two new architectures and a number of major updates and new features. Here, Linux Foundation Senior Engineer Jeff Licquia highlights the features you need to know about.
File storage and sharing using consumer-oriented cloud services can be a security problem for companies that want to avoid sensitive data leaks. ownCloud aims to solve the issue by offering commercial cloud services installed within a company's own datacenter. Their open source software is built on Linux and most often deployed on Linux by enterprise customers, said Markus Rex, CTO of ownCloud, via email. Here, Rex discusses where ownCloud fits into the open cloud ecosystem, what it means to be an open source company, how to ensure security with open source software and why they recently joined The Linux Foundation.
Welcome to 30 Linux Kernel Developer Workspaces in 30 Weeks! This is the first in a 30-week series that takes a new approach to the original series, 30 Linux Kernel Developers in 30 Weeks. This time we take a look inside developers' workspaces to learn even more about what makes them tick and how to collaborate with some of the top talent in all of software. Each week will share a picture and/or a video of the workspaces that Linux kernel developers use to advance the greatest shared technology resource in history.
The first installment of The Iron Penguin!
Why is the Robot rampaging through Tokyo? (Actually, why does just about every giant robot and monster rampage through Tokyo, or live deep in the ocean just off the coast?)
Who will save the day?
These questions and possibly more will be answered soon...
I hope to see some of you at LinuxCon Japan and the Automotive Linux Summit this year.
How to protect yourself online with the TAILS privacy distro.
The open source cloud discussion has noticeably shifted over the past year, away from whether the industry needs an open source alternative to the Amazon Web Services API and toward providing services that Amazon doesn't offer.
With its new Silvermont architecture, it looks like Intel has finally leaped forward in mobile. But whether it can ward off ARM'S upcoming 64-bit ARMv8 processors is another story.
More than 60 Linux-related projects are currently listed on Kickstarter. Here's a small sampling of some particularly compelling examples.
KVM and open virtualization are being rapidly adopted as end users look for lower-cost, enterprise hypervisors. One the major use cases for KVM is to virtualize and consolidate Linux workloads, and the pre-integration of KVM in major Linux distributions makes it easy for Linux enterprise end users to adopt KVM. A special KVM End User Technical Summit is running during this year's Linux Foundation Enterprise End User Summit, with the aim of introducing Linux users to the benefits of KVM, describing the KVM technical roadmap, and discussing the deployment and management of KVM both on its own and in multi-hypervisor environments. Sponsored by IBM, and with support from members of the Open Virtualization Alliance, this track aims to bring together customers, vendors and developers for interactive discussions about the use of KVM in practice, barriers...
At the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in April, the Xen Project announced that it was now a Collaborative Project of the Linux Foundation. But as people attended some of the Xen-related conference sessions, one question always seemed to be asked: “Why should I use Xen?”
Mageia Linux prepares its third release, so we get an early peek.
Join open source cloud experts from CloudStack, Eucalyptus, Gluster, OpenShift, OpenStack, Puppet Labs, Rackspace and Red Hat for a Linux Foundation live video chat next Tuesday, May 7 at 10 a.m. Pacific, via Google Hangouts On Air.
