Joe Brockmeier: I’m a bit taken aback by this post by Jason Harris over on the KDE Developer’s Journals site. Harris says that ” KDE, like many other open-source projects, doesn’t really need users at all, whether they are poisonous or not.”

openSUSE 11.0 has been one of the most anticipated distributions of the 2008 release season. In terms of innovation, openSUSE is perhaps the most ambitious of all the highly popular Linux distros so far this year. Since its 10.0 release to the open source world in 2006, openSUSE has experienced its share of ups and downs, not the least of which has been questionable quality assurance on final releases.

bmc.com/blogs/steve-carl: I mentioned in that post about the test stack that I was testing OpenSUSE 11 Alpha. It has since GA'ed, so it was time to go back and have a look. Unlike Fedora 9, OpenSUSE 11 had installed fairly easily even in Alpha state. I expected the GA to be smooth, and it was.

SUSE

Matt Asay: Of some significance this past week, Jefferies raised its rating on Novell to a "Buy," arguing that the Linux and Identity Management vendor's revenue stream is "as stable as you can get during a recession." Perhaps this is why a Novell director bought 10,000 more shares of stock?

Open source has never been more important or, ironically, irrelevant. As developers increasingly embrace the cloud to shorten time to market, they're speeding past open source, making it even harder to build an open source business. After all, if open source were largely a way for developers to skirt legal and purchasing departments to get the software they needed when they needed it, the cloud ups that convenience to the nth degree. In Accel's annual business review, the vaunted venture capital firm writes: "'Product' is no longer just the bits of software, it's also how the software is sold, supported, and made successful." The cloud is changing the way all software is consumed, including open source. Read more

Why the operating system matters even more in 2017

Operating systems don't quite date back to the beginning of computing, but they go back far enough. Mainframe customers wrote the first ones in the late 1950s, with operating systems that we'd more clearly recognize as such today—including OS/360 from IBM and Unix from Bell Labs—following over the next couple of decades.
