Virtualization has come a long way since VMware first introduced VMware Workstation in 1999.

Reviews
SUSE
-s

Why? That one thought kept echoing through my thoughts as I installed and ran SUSE 10.1 Beta 5. Around the net several articles entitled something to the effect of "SUSE releases two betas within 4 days" as if it was an accomplishment of 10.0 proportions! Some progress was made, but it reminded me of the old saying "2 steps forward and 3 steps back."

Fud Alert? Open-source script does not fit the bill

Filed under
OSS

I blame the open-source movement for the trend towards scriptable desktop and workgroup applications. This has led to a situation in which crowds of thickies like me wander forlornly around user forums, asking for tips and workarounds, only to be told by know-it-alls to write a script to solve the problem. Scripting is not an alternative to proprietary systems. It is a heap of bicycle parts, with instructions in Swedish and no Allen key.

An introduction to custom Xen networking

Filed under
HowTos

I've been running Xen for a few weeks now and until now I've been happy with the default networking setup installed. Only when I decided to install Xen upon the server which is hosting this website did I need to explore the way Xen sets up networking. Xen is pretty good at giving a working network setup for most common cases. By default it sets up virtual instances so they communicate with the network via the host's eth0 device, using NAT.

Does open source matter?

Filed under
OSS

It seems that, although some misgivings may remain, the open source community is coming to terms with the realities of the software business. Whereas at one time an open source software company might have been booed out of the room for charging license fees for commercial deployments, these days that practice is becoming the norm.
