OpenSolaris free CDs halted

Filed under
OS

Oracle has stopped the free OpenSolaris CD shipping program. A posting on the OpenSolaris website discussion mailing list by Oracle's Derek Cicero says the related links and icons have been removed from the opensolaris.org site.

The move will do little to reduce the tension in the OpenSolaris community over the future of OpenSolaris under Oracle. On Tuesday a "Call for action" was made on the OpenSolaris Governance Board mailing list. Suggestions over forking OpenSolaris, in the event Oracle were to close off the code, were made in comments, but it appears that currently the OpenSolaris Governance Board are getting very little information.

Pucker up and kiss OpenSolaris GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!!!

So ultimately, Edubuntu includes more programs that are information-heavy, while UberStudent includes more tools that can aid students in their studies but doesn’t directly give them any sort of information.

Zotac Nvidia Jetson TK1 review

The Jetson TK1, Nvidia’s first development board to be marketed at the general public, has taken a circuitous route to our shores. Unveiled at the company’s Graphics Technology Conference earlier this year, the board launched in the US at a headline-grabbing price of $192 but its international release was hampered by export regulations. Zotac, already an Nvidia partner for its graphics hardware, volunteered to sort things out and has partnered with Maplin to bring the board to the UK. In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more
