missing point

Yaw are missing the point. Windows' users are finally noticing linux and its superior capabilities and they are writing about it, spreading the news. So, they mess up the terminology some. Perhaps they don't yet understand the linux world fully. But they are taking notice.

Yaw just too hard on folks! Big Grin

Shoot, I been using linux 7+ years and I still mess up on some of the terminology sometimes. Big Grin

Containers: Resin.IO and Platform9

  • Resin.IO puts Linux and containers to work for IoT
    Resin.IO is working to make the use of containers and microservices useful tools to developers of Linux-based Internet of Things (IoT) applications. CEO Alexandros Marinos said the company has been working for three years to make mainstream containers attractive to developers of embedded workloads, such as those found in IoT applications. The company calls this the "Industrial Internet."
  • Platform9 Unveils Open Source Serverless Computing Framework
    Serverless computing is rapidly emerging as one of the favorite ways developers programmatically invoke cloud infrastructure. Instead of having to be aware of how their applications are consuming IT infrastructure, a serverless computing framework employs an event-driven architecture to make additional infrastructure resources available in real time as an application scales up and down. Today, Platform9 launched Fission, an open source implementation of a serverless computing framework based on the Kubernetes container orchestration engine originally developed by Google.
