SUSE

marcfearby.com: About this time last year I decided that Linux simply wasn’t good enough and returned to Windows XP. A week later I discovered that Mandriva was actually up to scratch. Given that Mandriva fired one of their most valuable employees recently, I think the writing is on the wall for that distro, sadly.

Linux

In tight economic times when I was growing up, my family generally had “homemade” Christmases, where all the gifts were handicrafts they had made. It takes a lot of time, but it does save money. This year, I’m following much the same pattern, I’m giving my kids refurbished computers.

Versatility is a good thing

Filed under
Linux

linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: It is amazing when one stops to consider the variety of different types of environments that people use computers in. No one distro fits every environment. Most Linux distros have a "target" niche, group of users or environment they build toward.

An Open Secret

OSS

cfo.com: By 2012 more than 90 percent of enterprises worldwide will deploy OSS in one form or another, predicts Gartner.

Fedora: A perfect 10?

Filed under
Linux

larrythefreesoftwareguy.wordpress: Rather than writing something right after the release of Fedora 10, I wanted to do something different.

  • MirageOS Unikernel Effort Moves Forward
    Linux Foundation backed Xen Project helps to advance the state of the MirageOS unikernel operating system with a new release that now supports the KVM hypervisor. The open-source MirageOS unikernel project reached a major milestone on Feb. 23, with the launch of MirageOS 3.0. The basic idea behind a unikernel is that it is a highly-optimized and purpose-built operating system that can help to enable efficient operation and delivery of applications. The MirageOS 1.0 release debuted back in December 2013 as an effort led by the Linux Foundation's Xen hypervisor virtualization project. With the new MirageOS 3.0 release, the unikernel is now expanding beyond the confines of the Xen hypervisor and now also supports the KVM and Bhyve hypervisors as well.
  • Linux Foundation Forms New Open Network Automation Project
    Today the Linux Foundation consolidated the ECOMP and OPEN-O project to form the new Open Network Automation Project (ONAP). ECOMP perhaps has had the shortest life-span of any Linux Foundation project, lasting barely a month. ECOMP only becamean official Linux Foundation project a few short weeks ago, after being donated by AT&T. The Enhanced Control, Orchestration, Management and Policy (ECOMP) is an effort that AT&T has been building for several years to help enable its network transformation for virtualization. OPEN-O on the other hand was announced a year ago, as the Open Orchestrator effort.

  • Top 3 machine learning libraries for Python
    You don't have to be a data scientist to be fascinated by the world of machine learning, but a few travel guides might help you navigate the vast universe that also includes big data, artificial intelligence, and deep learning, along with a large dose of statistics and analytics. ("Deep learning" and "machine learning" are often used interchangeably, so for a quick terminology primer that might help you understand the difference, read Nvidia's blog post, What's the Difference Between Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning?) In this article, I'll look at three of the most popular machine learning libraries for Python.
  • Which is the best programming language for beginners?
    What is the best language for a budding programmer to get their start with? There are probably as many opinions about which language is best for beginners as there are languages to choose from. And the options change all of the time. When we asked this question two years ago, Python came out on top as the clear winner. But is it still the best choice today?
