Red Hat

The organization's performance shows that it is getting a great deal of footing in its center Linux business. Truth be told, its first-quarter results have given a fitting answer to critics who were of the notion that Red Hat's Linux business was slowing down because of business saturation. To sustain its force, Red Hat has now entered into a consent to get enovance.

Furthermore, Red Hat is seeing strong interest for its Linux, middleware, and cloud offerings. Actually, it arrived some record breaking deals amid the quarter, inking four deals that were over $5 million and one arrangement that was more than $10 million. It also observed strong a reestablishment rates. Red Hat could replenish each of the 25 deals that were up for restoration at the end of the last quarter.

Red Hat

It's practically a given that the ARM processor architecture – so beloved by makers of small devices everywhere – will graduate to servers soon. But before ARM servers can ship in any significant volume, a standardized hardware platform that specifically targets the data center is a must.

Interviews

A very famous name in Fedora QA “Adam Williamson“, we all know him
more as “Community Monkey”.
I was already quite impressed the amount of work he has been putting in Fedora QA since quite a long time and I am sure it is not just me. I got a golden opportunity to meet him in person at flock and it was really nice to know about him more as a person.

My first meeting with him was a big surprise for me. I was about to start my talk on Fedora QA and with in five minutes after I started giving talk, just a another boy with shorts came running with a big smile on his face in to my talk room and I actually stopped my talk to mention that people are so happy to get registered in the flock. But,he was smiling all the time as I was giving my talk (may be because, there were lot many things I included in my slides created/managed/initiated by Adam). I was quite confused what making this guy so happy. At the end of my talk he was helping me out in giving answers quite confidently. I was wondering who is this guy, then I read his name on his flock badge – I was almost dead with shock because it was none other than “Adam Williamson”

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

Software

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20.

Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection!

A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website.

The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package.
