  • Red Hat technologist talks NFV innovations and an open source world

    Chris Wright, chief technologist for Red Hat, sat down with theCUBE cohosts Dave Vellante and Stu Miniman to discuss new developments in the open source world and NVF in telcom networks.

    As the person who helps define Red Hat’s strategic vision, Wright has seen conversations shift from cost of ownership to innovation. “Today, there is a shift to operationalize complex systems,” he says. “There has been a change in open source technology from commoditization to a place where real innovation is happening, and new services are introduced quickly.”

Fedora 23 Looks To Make It Easy To Test Cloud Images

Filed under

Yet another feature being worked on for Fedora 23 is to make it easy to test cloud images locally from the Fedora Workstation/Server.

Currently this program only works on Fedora Linux and requires libvirt, libguestfs, and python-requests for supporting this local cloud testing. Testcloud makes it a one-step process for downloading, booting, and gaining access to a cloud image on your local system.

Has KDE Lost the Evolutionary Advantage?

Filed under
KDE

To be fair, Plasma is not the only desktop whose development has become cautious. The years 2008-2012 saw user revolts against major changes to GNOME and KDE, and a mediocre reception to the introduction of Unity. In the aftermath, the developers of desktop environments were left understandably nervous, and remain concerned about the pace of change.

Also, in the last few years, Plasma has been ported to the Qt5 framework, and much of it rewritten. This process was unavoidable, and seems to have resulted in greater responsiveness, although questions of speed are notoriously subjective in computer interfaces.

Yet at the same time that this process has happened, KDE as a community has done little to extend the concept of the desktop. The innovations that marked Plasma 4, such as Activities, tabbed windows, and desktop layout, have received only minor tweaks -- the Activities window, for example, scrolls vertically in the latest Plasma releases instead of horizontally as in the first releases.

  • Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition now available in Europe

    Another Ubuntu phone, the Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition, has been made available in Europe - but you'll have to jump through a few hoops to secure one.

    Canonical finally delivered the first smartphone powered by the Linux-based Ubuntu OS earlier this year. It swiftly followed up on the launch of the BQ Aquarius E4.5 with news of a follow-up, the Aquaris E5 HD Ubuntu Edition, which will also be made by Spain's BQ.

  • New Ubuntu phone boasts best design yet

    It’s only been a few weeks since Canonical unveiled a new Ubuntu phone, but the company is already back with another handset for the European market. This time the hardware comes from Chinese firm Meizu, packing a slick design and some pretty nice specs.

Open source: from side to center stage

Filed under
Linux
OSS

Over the last fifteen years, I've tailored most of what I do personally and professionally to the open source way. It puts the needs of others first in my life, and I love showing people how they can use a secure and stable operating system on new or aging hardware to accomplish all of their technology needs and desires. I've also seen the open source community grow and hundreds of new, and constantly improving, projects and products emerge. I'm a regular user of OpenOffice and LibreOffice. And, I use Firefox, Audacity, OpenShot, VirtualBox, Wordpress, Drupal, Moodle, and more!

It's been exciting to see open source software and the open source way arrive from the periphery to center stage.

To steal from the description, “The Fan is not a software-defined network, and relies on neither distributed databases nor consensus protocols. Rather, routes are calculated deterministically and traffic carries no additional overhead beyond routine IP tunneling. Canonical engineers have already demonstrated The Fan operating at 5Gpbs between two Docker containers on separate hosts.”

Red Hat CEO: Open Source Isn't Just about the License

Filed under
Red Hat

The way that DevOps can work in an enterprise organization is to first understand that innovation is de-centralized, with the best ideas coming from the best sources, wherever they might be.

It's also important to have an open and collaborative culture in order to facilitate innovation and organizations need to be modular to be able to react to change.
