User survey: Ubuntu is the top OpenStack OS

Filed under
Ubuntu

A survey of OpenStack users, done by members of the OpenStack Foundation has found that Ubuntu is by far the most widely used operating system with OpenStack, not Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS (which is in second place).

But the most eye-opening statistics don't involve which distribution is being used. It's who's using it and why -- and what those numbers say about the people who've adopted OpenStack.

Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) Is Now Officially Dead

Filed under
Ubuntu

“Since changes to the Ubuntu support cycle mean that Ubuntu 13.04 has reached end of life before Ubuntu 12.10, the support cycle for Ubuntu 12.10 has been extended slightly to overlap with the release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. This will allow users to move directly from Ubuntu 12.10 to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (via Ubuntu 13.10). This period of overlap is now coming to a close, and we will be retiring Ubuntu 12.10 on Friday, May 16,” said Canonical’s José Antonio Rey in the original announcement.

Filed under
Ubuntu

Josh Arenson committed today the start of a "performance tests" category for Mir, as part of their built-in testing harness. The only test initially added is the OpenGL ES 2.0 port of the glmark2 test. Running this test in Mir simply ensures the performance meets a baseline threshold for ensuring no really bad regressions make it into the Mir code-base for slowing down its graphics performance.

Ubuntu

The Deepin Linux distribution is aimed at professional and normal users alike, focusing on the best user experience possible, and uses its own desktop environment, which is not something that you usually see these days.

The Deepin developers are known for their unorthodox way of doing things. The previous edition of the operating system was full of interesting features, which even included facial recognition software. Now they have returned with a brand new desktop environment and a fresh desktop ecosystem.

OpenStack Deployments Are Up, And So Is Ubuntu—But Will It Stick?

Filed under
Server
Ubuntu

All of this means that life in OpenStack Land is suddenly very interesting. Ubuntu leads by a considerable margin in production deployments—but that's today. But whether it can maintain that lead will depend on its ability to build up an ecosystem to rival Red Hat's. In the data center, it's way behind. But in the OpenStack cloud, it's a much more even playing field, with Canonical recently expanding its partner footprint with Microsoft, IBM and others.

It's a new market. Canonical hasn't won anything yet, of course, but this is the most level playing field it's had in a decade. Game on.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
