OpenOffice distances itself from OpenOfficeMouse, joins everyone else

Hardware
OOo

engadget.com: Well, the OpenOfficeMouse rightly caused a bit of skepticism when it was officially announced earlier this week, and it turns out it is something of a fraud after all -- just not the way you might think.

Haleron’s Ocean OS for netbooks to support Android, Linux, Windows apps

Filed under
Linux

liliputing.com: Most companies that want to put out a netbook take a safe and well traveled route, but putting out a machine with extraordinarily ordinary specs: 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 160GB to 250GB hard drive, and Windows XP, Windows 7, or maybe a Linux distribution like Ubuntu or Linpus Linux Lite. Haleron isn’t most companies.

Where is the Linux desktop going?

Filed under
Linux

blogs.computerworld.com: While I like the Linux desktop a lot, I don't pretend that it's that popular. Which, is why, I found it fascinating that, despite everything Microsoft has been able to throw at it, desktop Linux still managed to claim 32% of the netbook market.

Server: NASA, Kubernetes at GitHub, and Docker in Mainframes

  • NASA Launches Supercomputer Servers into Space
    During that time, it will run a series of supercomputing benchmarks, including High Performance Linpack, the High Performance Conjugate Gradients (HPCG) suite, and the NASA-derived NAS parallel benchmarks. Its operation will be compared to HPE servers of the same construction back on Earth. The idea is to make sure that the ISS-based system is able to deal with the realities of cosmic radiation, solar flares, unstable electrical power, and wide variations in temperature.
  • Kubernetes at GitHub
    Over the last year, GitHub has gradually evolved the infrastructure that runs the Ruby on Rails application responsible for github.com and api.github.com. We reached a big milestone recently: all web and API requests are served by containers running in Kubernetes clusters deployed on our metal cloud. Moving a critical application to Kubernetes was a fun challenge, and we’re excited to share some of what we’ve learned with you today.
  • Docker Can Now Containerize Legacy Apps Running on Mainframes
    Docker this week announced the first update to its rebranded flagship platform with the release of Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) 17.06. Back in March, Docker rolled out the first Docker EE, built on the backs of what had been known as Docker Commercially Supported and Docker Datacenter. The new release comes on the heels of a report last week from Bloomberg that the container company has been raising money, which will result in $75 million dollars being added to its coffers by the end of the month, bringing with it a new valuation of $1.3 billion — up $300 million from its previous valuation.
