  • Red Hat's Head Of Products On Competing With Docker, Teaming With AWS And A Container Services 'Renaissance' For The Channel

    At open-source technologies giant Red Hat, executives say it's their company—not Docker—that is the player to beat in containers for the enterprise. Paul Cormier, an executive vice president who heads Red Hat's technology and products organizations, sat down with CRN during Red Hat Summit 2017 in Boston and had plenty to say about the competition around containers. "You need a production-ready environment to really start to deploy [containers] and bet your business on it," Cormier said, "and we're the only one that's proved we can do that."

  • Track the night sky with Stellarium on Fedora

    Ever looked up at the night sky and tried to identify specific celestial bodies out of the millions you can see?

  • Crouton Fedora + Wayland. Yes, please!

    As of version 50, Chrome OS includes a Wayland server. Even though this is mostly for running Android applications, even my old Toshiba Chromebook which doesn’t have Android support, has Wayland in it. Therefore Crouton Fedora can now fully utilize it and run GUI applications on it, mixed with Chrome OS windows!

  • It's Now Possible To Run Fedora On Chromebooks With Wayland

    With Wayland now being present on Chrome OS for the Android compatibility layer, modifications to Crouton were made to allow Fedora Workstation with Wayland to run atop these Wayland-enabled Chromebooks.

    Using Crouton to load a Linux distribution on a Chromebook/Chromebox no longer has to rely upon using a xorg-server now that Wayland is present on ChromeOS 50+.

  • Red Hat panel: Open source is the future, but only if it can expand beyond developers

    Tim Yeaton, EVP and CMO, Red Hat
    Leigh Day, VP, Corporate Communications, Red Hat
    Nick Hopman, senior director, Emerging Technology Practices in US Sales, Red Hat
    Josh Patterson, director, Field Engineering, Skymind

    These executives discussed the open source movement and how it relates to Red Hat endeavors, producing some interesting insights worth sharing.

    Nick Hopman stated the technological and delivery model for open source technology is an "overnight success that started in the eighties." The concept has roots in the university system where open source licenses promoted sharing. "Over the last ten years we've seen a metamorphosis. Every major technology that enterprises are likely to bet on - cloud, artificial intelligence, mobility - has a lot of its current innovation happening upstream in the open source community," he stated. "The small university-centric collaboration model is now a fountain of innovation."

  • ‘Slow-burn’ growth model proves a successful strategy for Red Hat, analyst says

  • Java modularity specification opposed by Red Hat, IBM is voted down

    A Java modularity specification failed to pass in a vote by Java executive committee members, leaving the future of the technology in question. The issue could hold up the planned July 27 release of Java 9, which is slated to include modularity.

    Balloting on Java Specification Request 376 was completed on Monday. The modular plan for Java, intended to make it easier to scale the platform, has been opposed by companies, including Red Hat and IBM. Red Hat, in particular, questioned many parts of the plan, including raising issues about potential application compatibility problems.

  • Java 9 faces another delay, Oracle fires back at IBM and Red Hat

    Oracle’s chief Java architect has criticised Red Hat and IBM for the companies opposition to make Java 9 modular.

    The Java Platform Module System (JPMS) a core component of Project Jigsaw, the most likely candidate for modularity in Java 9, has received opposition from both IBM and Red Hat.

    IBM have hinted that they may vote against the changes whilst Red Hat initially agreed to the coming changes. Since then Oracle Chief Java Architect Mike Reinhold has come out and said that Red Hat worked consistently to undermine any coming changes.

  • The future of middleware lies in orchestrating the architecture, says Red Hat

    Enterprise adoption of containers and microservices continues to grow, driven by increased developer efficiency and support microservices. This type of architecture, however, does not come without challenges. And this week during Red Hat Summit in Boston, Massachusetts, Red Hat Inc. announced OpenShift Application Runtimes to mitigate those obstacles and accelerate a cloud-native environment.

    “One of the things that has continued to be an actual challenge, at least a perceived challenge in the minds of would-be microservices architects, is: ‘How do I manage all the stuff?’” said Mich Piech (pictured, right), vice president and general manager of middleware at Red Hat.

  • Can Red Hat juju sell more OpenStack than OpenStack can?

    OpenStack got some play at last week’s 2017 Red Hat Summit, with keynote speakers giving the open-source infrastructure project nods. But there remains some mystery as to how much OpenStack customers are consuming from Red Hat Inc.’s offerings.

    “OpenStack manages resources — whether its compute, network, storage resources,” said Jim Whitehurst (pictured), president and chief executive officer of Red Hat.

  • ​Red Hat OpenStack Platform 11 released

    How serious is Red Hat about OpenStack? Serious enough that when it announced Red Hat OpenStack Platform 11, the latest version of of its massively scalable and agile Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud, at OpenStack Summit, it based it on February's OpenStack "Ocata" release.

  • Red Hat rolls out the announcements at its annual summit

    Last week open source company Red Hat held its annual summit. I didn't actually attended the event, but I took the opportunity to follow along virtually. Many of my analyst friends were there, and between their missives, some back-channel conversations and interaction with their AR/PR team, I got a pretty good handle on what was up.

    This comes at an interesting time for Red Hat. Its original business, Red Hat Linux in all its flavors, is going well, but newer open-source initiatives (OpenStack, OpenShift, Docker, etc.) have muddied the waters and created a requirement for Red Hat to embrace different areas.

    Historically, I’ve found Red Hat a difficult organization to engage with. They seem to get a little prickly about criticism (whether constructive or not), and defensiveness seems to be something of a core operating model for them. That said, having a view of the event from a distance gives me a chance to tell it like I see it.

Fedora Linux getting native MP3 support, but who really cares?

Filed under
Red Hat

Fedora is a wonderful Linux distribution, as it is both stable and modern. One of the biggest selling points of the operating system is that is relies on truly free open source software. This means it won't have patented or closed-source non-free packages by default. Of course, in-the-know Fedora users often added these needed packages after the fact by using third-party repositories, such as RPM Fusion.

Security Leftovers

  • Security updates for Wednesday
  • Microsoft says its best not to fiddle with its Windows 10 group policies (that don't work)

    On Monday, we revealed that a security researcher had used a packet sniffer to show that many settings designed to prevent access to the internet were being ignored with connections to a range of third party servers including advertising hubs.

  • What's got a vast attack surface and runs on Linux? Windows Defender, of course
    Google Project Zero's Windows bug-hunter and fuzz-boffin Tavis Ormandy has given the world an insight into how he works so fast: he works on Linux, and with the release of a personal project on GitHub, others can too. Ormandy's project is to port Windows DLLs to Linux for his vuln tests (“So that's how he works so fast!” Penguinistas around the world are saying). Typically self-effacing, Ormandy made this simple announcement on Twitter (to a reception mixing admiration, humour, and horror):
  • Hacked in Translation – from Subtitles to Complete Takeover
    Check Point researchers revealed a new attack vector which threatens millions of users worldwide – attack by subtitles. By crafting malicious subtitle files, which are then downloaded by a victim’s media player, attackers can take complete control over any type of device via vulnerabilities found in many popular streaming platforms, including VLC, Kodi (XBMC), Popcorn-Time and strem.io. We estimate there are approximately 200 million video players and streamers that currently run the vulnerable software, making this one of the most widespread, easily accessed and zero-resistance vulnerability reported in recent years.
