  • Over 1,000 games have released on Steam this year with Linux support
    Don't adjust your screens, as you did read that correctly. Over 1,000 games have released on Steam this year alone with Linux support. I've been slowly writing up an end of year roundup and something I wanted to know was how well we have done this year in terms of actual releases. It took a while to add it all up, as some games show up in the list with a date that’s passed and they aren’t actually released. I had to be pretty careful and do it slowly to make sure it's right.

  • The New Role of Assurance for Virtualized Networks
    For as long as any of us can remember, fulfillment and assurance were two independent processes, mostly because they were conceived, operated and purchased by separate departments. As Alfred D.

Fulfillment and assurance are no exceptions, with those organizations driving processes and supporting software purchases. While many know that its not ideal, the situation has mostly worked.
  • IBM building blockchain ecosystem

IBM envisions the ecosystem as an open environment that allows organizations to collaborate using the Hyperledger Fabric.
