limulus.wordpress: What if OEMs were required to sell the software separately from the hardware, BUT still be allowed to preinstall? Oh wait, what’s that other stack of disks next to the Windows envelopes? Ubuntu Linux disks? They’re FREE? And if I don’t like it I can come back next week and still buy the OEM Windows disks?

How to pick the right operating system for your business

Filed under
OS

itbusiness.ca: Many small and mid-sized businesses are seriously considering Linux as an alternative operating system (OS). The Linux vs. Microsoft issue is once more on their radar screen, partly due to less than stellar reviews garnered by Vista, its undistinguished sales, and the growing popularity of open source software.

Introducing the Linux user interface

Filed under
Linux

cnet.com: A few days ago, Walter Mossberg, writing in the Wall Street Journal, offered a verbal peek at the Mac user interface intended as heads-up for Windows XP users thinking of switching. I'm not a Mac user, but from reading the article, it seems that the initial learning curve for switching from Windows XP to Linux, is less than that for switching to Macs. I offer the Linux side of the various user interface aspects that Mossberg raised and contrast it with Mac OS X Leopard.

Linux examined: OpenSUSE 11.0

Filed under
SUSE

computerworld.com: A few weeks ago, the OpenSUSE Project announced the release of OpenSUSE 11.0, the "community" edition of SUSE Linux, Novell's commercial Linux distribution. Like most recent distributions, OpenSUSE is made up of the usual suspects. Once up, OpenSUSE looks pretty much like any other GNOME/KDE-based Linux distro.

Interviews

salon.com: Five days before the computer genius who killed his wife led police to her body, he was remorseless and angry in defense of his innocence. I showed up at the Santa Rita Jail during visiting hours to meet Hans Reiser and I knew if I was ever going to talk with him, I had to do it before he was transferred to state prison.

Linux is a tool.

Filed under
Linux

The business world and the rest of the world is a marketplace. So the next time someone tries to tell you that the Linux approach of presenting a large number of distributions isn't good for the business sense of Linux, they apparently haven't been to a marketplace in a long time.

OLPC

gregdek.livejournal: Did you know that the OLPC project is the largest single "customer" of Fedora in the entire world? Despite some unfortunate statements by the project's erstwhile CEO, the OLPC project is still *extremely* focused on succeeding in its noble goal -- the education of the world's children -- with the use of free software as the central component of their software strategy.

When Is More Open Source Too Much?

  • There and Back Again: The MongoDB Cloud Story
    Before it was a database company, MongoDB was a cloud company. Founded in 2007 and originally known as 10gen, the company originally intended to build a Java cloud platform. After building a database it called MongoDB, the company realized that the infrastructure software it had built to support its product was more popular than the product itself, and the PaaS company pivoted to become a database company – eventually taking the obvious step of renaming itself to reflect its new purpose.

Red Hat Summit

  • Red Hat Summit Advocates the Power of Participation
    Red Hat hosted its annual Red Hat Summit customer event June 28-30 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, with a theme of harnessing the power of participation. Once again, the DevNation developer event, which is the successor to JBoss World, was co-located with Red Hat Summit. For JBoss, 2016 is a particularly significant year as it marks 10 years since Red Hat acquired it. At DevNation, Red Hat announced the new JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7 release, providing new cloud-enhanced capabilities for Red Hat's flagship middleware platform. JBoss is now also working to help enable Java for the container era, with the launch of the MicroProfile Project, an effort to optimize enterprise Java for a microservices architecture. Java wasn't the only focus of DevNation this year either, as Microsoft took center stage too, announcing the availability of its .NET Core for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the Red Hat Summit and DevNation 2016 events.
  • How Red Hat is tailoring OpenStack to fit … everyone
    Even though there have been no major changes announced to the OpenStack platform of late, it was still one of the most talked about subjects at this year’s Red Hat Summit. Red Hat plays a significant role in the development of the platform and is very proud of its contribution to the community.
  • New technologies foster an open-source environment
    In 2007, when 3scale, Inc. was founded, some people thought it was crazy to be investing so much time and energy into API. But Steven Willmott, CEO of 3scale, Inc., said that even at that time his team knew that the future was API-driven, and they wanted to help that happen.
