Ubuntu

Thanks to Wildbill’s cellphone photo clicking speed, we now can see the first Ubuntu billboard. Ever.

The billboard was spotted near the Ralston exit in Redwood City, USA.

Full Story.

Wow it's advertising

And the "OS as a Religion" crowd the world over wets themselves.

No matter what they do it is

No matter what they do it is gonna be a while before linux is mainstream. Ive turned a few family members and friends on to it who were originally windows users and they don't like it and even find it complicating. Of course it is not as we all know but think about it, not everyone is linux enthusiasts and experienced users like ourselves.

Ubuntu really needs to fix the sound issues, the one channel sound and all. Also using a mic is a crappy task and when you finally get it set right and go to do it again a few days later after listening to music or whatever your settings are all screwed up again. Actually recently on my dapper Teamspeak voice does not work at all, and you have to go through the settings routine on skype.

If they fix that and other multimedia problems as well as some other bugs then it will finally become more mainstream.

The Red Hat Way

  • Red Hat wants to make cold-shouldered OpenStack red hot
    At OpenStack Summit in Boston last May, some speculated that the event might be the last gasp for OpenStack — an open-source platform for cloud computing and infrastructure-as-service. Granted, OpenStack was one of the less hyped open-source projects of the past year. But renewed community and end-user interest is breathing fresh life into the platform, according to Rob Young (pictured), senior manager of virtualization product and strategy at Red Hat Inc. Telcos and others are adopting OpenStack “because of the simplification of what was once complex, but also in the cost savings that can be realized by managing your own cloud within a hybrid cloud environment,” Young said.
  • Improved multimedia support with Pipewire in Fedora 27
    Pipewire — a new project of underlying Linux infrastructure to handle multimedia better — has just been officially launched. The project’s main goal is to improve the handling of both audio and video. Additionally, Pipewire introduces a security model to allow easy interaction with multimedia devices from containerized and sandboxed applications, i.e. Flatpak apps.
  • Architecting the future with abstractions and metadata
    The modern data center is built on abstractions, with Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenShift leading the way.
