Debian Alliance Eyes The Enterprise

Filed under
Linux

The effort to put a Debian GNU/Linux based distribution into the enterprise consciousness may have picked up some steam this week. The DCC Alliance of Debian based GNU/Linux distributions released their DCC 3.0 core as part of an effort to further adoption and standardization and potentially offer an alternative to Red Hat and Novell/SUSE.

The DCC, which originally stood for Debian Common Core, now just stands for DCC Common Core due to trademark issues with the use of the term "Debian."

The DCC Alliance was originally announced in August and includes Linspire, formerly known as Lindows; Sun Wah Linux; Xandros; UserLinux; MEPIS; credativ; LinEX; and Knoppix distributions. It also has its share of detractors who claim the effort won't influence enterprise adoption of Debian.

The DCC 3.0 itself is not a distribution but rather a Linux Standards Base (LSB) 3.0 compliant Debian core.

Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers. Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS. His silence on the matter, though, can be taken as a confirmation of sorts, especially when his comment reflects the possibility of Google restricting the companies’ freedom with Android in future.
