Interview: Aaron Fulkerson of MindTouch Software

Interviews

I had the unique opportunity to interview Aaron Fulkerson of MindTouch, and discuss their new MindTouch Deki known as "Kilen Woods". What he had to say was quite interesting.

Raiden's Realm: Tell us a little about MindTouch.

Aaron Fulkerson: Sure. We develop MindTouch Deki. We started the company in 2005. I'm one of the founders. And then there's my buddy Steve who's the CTO. We met at Microsoft where we did research into distributed systems, and then we decided to start MindTouch. In 2005 we started, and in 2006 we did our first product release at OSCON, and I guess that first release was more of an enterprise wiki, which is pretty much the extent of what it did. So it was competitive with other enterprise wikis out there. But what we had in development from the very beginning of MindTouch was this web services framework and web orchestration engine that underlined this enterprise wiki interface.

What Stratis learned from ZFS, Btrfs, and Linux Volume Manager

The reasons vary. First, let's consider ZFS. Originally developed by Sun Microsystems for Solaris (now owned by Oracle), ZFS has been ported to Linux. However, its CDDL-licensed code cannot be merged into the GPL-licensed Linux source tree. Whether CDDL and GPLv2 are truly incompatible is a subject for debate, but the uncertainty is enough to make enterprise Linux vendors unwilling to adopt and support it. Btrfs is also well-established and has no licensing issues. For years it was the "Chosen One" for many users, but it just hasn't yet gotten to where it needs to be in terms of stability and features. So, fuelled by a desire to improve the status quo and frustration with existing options, Stratis was conceived. Read more

How to Upgrade from Ubuntu 17.10 or Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Before we go through the upgrade process in more detail, there are a few things you should know. First and foremost, make sure you have a recent backup of your most important files on an external drive, do it now! Second of all, if you're upgrading from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, you'll have to deal with some major desktop changes if you use Unity. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) uses the Unity desktop environment by default, but Ubuntu 18.04 LTS uses the GNOME desktop environment with a highly customized interface to make it look like Unity, which Canonical said it won't be removed during the upgrade process and will remain available as an alternative if you still want to use it.

Best Linux apps of 2018

While everyone knows that most Linux distributions (distros) are free to download, not everybody is aware that you also have access to thousands of cost-free applications through your operating system’s package manager. Many of the more user-friendly distros will come with a selection of software preinstalled to help you get started, but there are many more apps out in the wild, under continuous development.
