Linux

bmc.com/blogs: The problem with asking a technogeek whether or not something is possible is that you will almost always get back the answer "Yes". "Can a program be written that monitors all the computers on the network, regardless of who makes it, or what OS it is running?" "Yes" "Can it be ready a week from Tuesday?" "What year?" There is the rub.

kevincarmony.blogspot: When John Jones was here this past week, we got to thinking about the silly videos we did for Linspire over the years. I thought it would be fun to let others see them again, as just a bit of Lindows/Linspire history.

kerneltrap.org: "I regularly run and post various benchmarks comparing POHMELFS, NFS, XFS and Ext4, [the] main goal of POHMELFS at this stage is to be essentially as fast as [the] underlying local filesystem. And it is..." explained Evgeniy Polyakov, suggesting that the POHMELFS networking filesystem performs 10% to 300% faster than NFS, depending on the file operation.

Linux Mint 5 Elyssa

distro-review.com: To be perfectly honest with you, my original intention was to review Kubuntu 8.04, but with the brand new shiny Linux Mint 5 hitting the streets late last Sunday evening around midnight UK time, Kubuntu will have to take a back seat for now.

ok, then how about a video (more folderviewing)

Filed under
KDE

Aaron Seigo: In describing what we're doing with folderview I used text and achieved a rather spectacular fail grade with some of my readers. So then I tried pictures. The result was a bit better, but still not crystal clear for everyone. We came to the idea that maybe a screencast would help.

Filed under

linuxplanet.com: I've used Fedora in the past on and off but for some reason it's never quite stuck with me. I've often found it buggy and a little too unstable due to it's experimental nature.

Open source-based business lessons from a seasoned CEO

The default now is to build from open and in the open. So that's a positive. The downside is that by open source being the default, we may be getting a little lazy. If you remember back 5-10 years, open sourcing was a big deal, and it forced a level of rigor that may have led, in some cases, to founders and early investors taking better approaches to building their company—for example, shifting towards SaaS wherever possible, in part because of the ability to demonstrate clear value versus their own open source.

Keeping up with advances in open source database administration

The world of open source databases is rapidly evolving. It seems like every day brings a new release of an open source technology that might make a database administrator's life easier, if only he or she knew about it. Fortunately, there are many ways to stay on top of what's going on with open source database technology.

We've covered Percona Live before, and invite you to take a look back at some of our previous stories. From IoT to big data to working with the cloud, there's plenty to keep up with. Here are a look at a couple of the sessions you might enjoy, as described by the speakers. Read more
