Welcome to Linux city

Linux

Ever since Neanderthal times people have lived together in groups. They would roam around foraging for this and foraging for that. Then they started settling down in one place and created villages, towns and now the cities we have today.

But a city is not just a collection of buildings. With the number of people living in cities numbering in the millions they cannot singly take care of themselves.

Modern cities have a supporting structure to be able to handle such a large number of people. This infrastructure is both visible, eg. bus and train networks and invisible, eg, water and sewerage. Without these important networks in place or if they are inadequate then the city comes to a standstill and is very smelly to boot Smile

With a good infrastructure then city commerce is profitable, the city is clean and the users of that city, Mr. and Mrs Genpop, are very happy. The city becomes more and more popular and people start moving towards that city.

A computing operating system is much like a city.

OSS Leftovers

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
