The GravityZoo OOo porting project

Date: Mon, 16 Apr 2007 00:38:36 +0200
From: Marcel v. Birgelen
Subject: The GravityZoo OOo porting project

In the past 3 years we have been working on the GravityZoo Framework, a
networked computing platform. Applications written or adapted for this
platform run "in the network", rather than just on a server or client.
The framework can be used among others to transform existing
applications into "net enabled" applications which can be hosted in the
framework and become accessible from practically any device via an IP

At this moment we are preparing a GravityZoo porting
project. Our goal is to bring to the GravityZoo
Framework. In essence we want to bring OOo to the Internet for the
delivery as a service to the community.

When is "GravityZood", it will become a suite of
productivity applications that are always available, online, via a broad
range of devices.

  • Docker: Making the Internet Programmable
    Docker, and containers in general, are hot technologies that have been getting quite a bit of attention over the past few years. Even Solomon Hykes, Founder, CTO, and Chief Product Officer at Docker started his keynote with the assumption that people attending LinuxCon Europe know that Docker does containers, so instead of focusing on what Docker does, Hykes used his time to talk about Docker’s purpose saying, “It really boils down to one small sentence. We're trying to make the Internet programmable.” Hykes described this idea of making the Internet programmable with three key points. First, they are focused on building “tools of mass innovation” designed to allow people to create and innovate on a very large scale. Second, applications and cloud services are allowing the idea of the Internet as a programmable platform to be realized, and they want to make this accessible to more people. Third, they are accomplishing all of this by building the Docker stack with open standards, open infrastructure, and a development platform with commercial products on top of the stack.
  • How to benchmark your Linux system
    The Software Center list will also include individual tests. These can be fine to use, but they can be tedious to open and configure manually. Keep your eye out for an entry called Phoronix Test Suite, or PTS for short. The Phoronix Test Suite is a powerful program that can run a single test, or an entire battery. PTS offers some built-in suites (collection of tests), or you can design your own suite. When tests are completed, you can choose to upload the test results to, where other users can see your results and even run the exact same tests on their PC.
