I met Matthew at LinuxCon 2013 and have been hounding him for an interview ever since then. He’s worth the wait, though. He really gets under the hood of his GNOME setup and he has some great things to say about the power of open source software. Also, I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s worth repeating: Fedora has been great for me lately. I know there have always been Fedora fans, but my experience with it was always that there were one or two annoyingly broken things in each release. But 21 is solid. Like Ubuntu solid. And that’s thanks to the work of people like Matthew.
Red Hat, Inc. (RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that UAE Exchange, a leading foreign exchange and money transfer brand, has successfully created a scalable, secure, robust and high-performance datacenter environment by consolidating its IT infrastructure on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
The prolific developers at Red Hat have been relatively quiet in the New Year. Now, the open source leader is picking up the pace with the introduction of the latest version of its enterprise virtualization tool.
The company announced general availability this week of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.5 aiming to offer tighter integration with OpenStack while promising to ease deployment of IT infrastructures for traditional virtualization workloads along with enterprise-level cloud infrastructure.
The famous Network Security Toolkit (NST) computer operating system used by many network administrators and security specialists to analyze and monitor networks, as well as to tighten the security of computer networks, received an update on February 9, 2015. The version is now Network Security Toolkit 20 SVN 6535.
The short story is that I didn't do many tweaks to my GNOME 3.14 desktop and it's going well. Fedora 21 with GNOME 3.14 is running well for my X1 Carbon connected to this affordable 4K monitor. The only tweaks made were enabling icons on the GNOME Shell desktop (to get closer to my original workflow) and allowing thumbnails on images greater than 10MB (with the many original DSLR photos for Phoronix articles being 15MB+).
It has taken a few weeks longer than we had hoped, but Korora 21 images are now available. I strongly recommend downloading with BitTorrent if you can.
The 21 beta was quite successful and we were able to make some minor changes to help improve the overall experience. Users who are currently on the beta need not re-install, updates are provided via the package manager. Users who are on 20 may consider upgrading, however this is not necessary as version 20 is supported for another 6 months or so.
Red Hat Inc, the world's largest pure-play open-source software company, is ramping up its cloud-based subscription service in Asean to capitalise on the rapid adoption of cloud computing in the region.
Its new cloud service is aimed at competing directly with Microsoft's cloud platform and provide another alternative for enterprises, said Damien Wong, senior director and general manager of Red Hat Asean.
