5 things we love/hate about Novell's SUSE Studio

Filed under

Users might have a love/hate relationship with Novell's SUSE Studio. Here are five things we love and five things we disliked about the product.

Template selection

Studio cooks up a lot of combinations including server, JeOS (just enough operating system), desktop and your choice of SLE 11, SLE 10 or the latest OpenSUSE

You Get to Test Drive Online

One of the coolest features is the ability to test the image you built prior to downloading it, via a remote console in the browser connecting through Flash. This makes sure you don't download an image that doesn't work or is just plain ugly.

Data indicates that Android picked up global market share from iOS last month

Tracking mobile web traffic, NetMarketShare computes the market share for mobile operating systems. Based on the data from last month, Android was able to widen its gap over iOS globally. Considering that the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus weren't launched until September 25th, the recently released phones accounted for a miniscule part of the data. The new models won't have a major effect on the results until the figures for this month are released. Read more

RapidDisk / RapidCache 3.4 now available.

RapidDisk is an advanced Linux RAM Disk which consists of a collection of modules and an administration tool. Features include: Dynamically allocate RAM as block device. Use them as stand alone disk drives or even map them as caching nodes to slower local disk drives. I pushed 3.4 into the mainline earlier this morning. Changes include:
  • Added ability to autoload RapidDisk volumes during module insertion.
  • Fixed bug in RapidDisk (volatile) volume size definition across 32 to 64 bit types.
  • Making use of BIT() macro in the driver.
  • Removed RapidDisk-NV support. It was redundant with the recently kernel integrated pmem code.
You can pull it from the git, yum, ZYpp & apt repos or download it from the SourceForge project page. To stay updated, you can follow the RapidDisk Google+ page.
