Mandriva: Nine Priorities for Mandriva Incoming CEO

Filed under
MDV

As everybody^wnobody know, Hervé YAHI is no longer the CEO of Mandriva. So I decide to rip off an article from The VAR Guy to issue an open letter to the Mandriva direction. So here are 9 priorities for the new Mandriva staff :

1. A New Community: Sure, Mandriva has a strong open source community. And ??? will should work to strengthen that community, especially when seeing the clashes between Mandriva and its community. Still the new staff needs to strengthen a different type of community — a Mandriva business ecosystem that includes hardware and software partners, service providers, channel partners and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers).

2. Strengthen the Server Story: To date, Mandriva is known mostly as a desktop and mobile operating system, with relatively strong market share in the netbook market. But Mandriva recently launched its Mandriva Enterprise Server 5 and Pulse 2. Meanwhile, ???? offers some support of MES — as do upstarts like ??? and ???. But Mandriva needs more server partners… And whenever a noteworthy customer embraces Mandriva Enterprise Server, Mandriva needs to get the word out.

3. Show CloudCluster/Grid Success or Mobile success:

Rest here

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.
