Red Hat spins, SUSE plays it straight

Linux

Last week, Red Hat announced its intention to get into the big data business; this week SUSE is trying to woo new businesses in Australia and keep its existing partners in the loop.

There could not be a bigger contrast in the approach the two companies take.

Red Hat's presser was a webcast, with Ranga Rangachari, vice-president and general manager of the company's storage business unit, making a presentation. Funnily, the webcast wouldn't work on Firefox on my Debian GNU/Linux workstation. Nor on my laptop, which runs the same distro. It wouldn't work on Firefox, even on my Windows 8 test box. It only worked on Internet Explorer on that Windows 8 box. The times, they have indeed changed.

Although there are those who think the systemd debate has been decided in favor of systemd, the exceedingly loud protests on message boards, forums, and the posts I wrote over the past two weeks would indicate otherwise. I've seen many declarations of victory for systemd, now that Red Hat has forced it into the enterprise with the release of RHEL 7. I don't think it's that easy. Read more
