  • Fedora: Fixing fonts

    Someone on twitter commented that I should write an article about how to fix fonts on Fedora. Sadly this is not something I am able to do. That doesn't mean there isn't a problem, just that I don't have the font specialist eye where they can look at a screen and go "OMG THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG HERE!!!!" in the way that someone who is slightly flat or sharp drives me bonkers. [I on the other hand can happily read a webpage in Comic Sans or Papyrus and wonder why everyone looking over my shouldr is cringing and hissing as I do so.]

  • The Fedora Design Team’s Inkscape/Badges Workshop!

    At our January 2015 FAD, one of the major themes of things we wanted to do as a team was outreach, to both help teach Fedora and the FLOSS creative tools set as a platform for would-be future designers, as well as to bring more designers into our team. We planned to do a badges workshop at some future point to try to achieve that goal, and this workshop (which was part of a longer Design FAD event I’ll detail in another post) was it.

  • Fedora Statistics: Questions and answers.

    I work for Red Hat as a system administrator for the Fedora Project where I get to do a lot of neat and interesting things daily. One of the tasks I have is gathering various statistics for the Fedora Project Leader's state of the hat speeches like the one he has just given at Flock. This means I also get to help answer regular questions on mailing lists and irc channels like "How many users does Fedora have?", "How many downloads of Fedora are there?", "How does this compare to ?"

    All of these questions are where Matthew Miller pulls out a clip from a dinosaur movie eating a lawyer on a toilet or similar comedic point. Why? Because raptors live here and will eat you if you do not have a proper escape policy.

    The question "How does this compare to ?" is the easiest to answer: "Nothing I give you can be compared to what any other distribution probably says." This doesn't mean I or they are lying... it just means the terms being used aren't well defined and we are probably using slightly different ones.

SUSE Enterprise Storage

Filed under
Red Hat

The conundrum for many enterprise-level businesses is that the demand for data storage is significantly outpacing the shrinking price for storage. The upshot for many is that budgets for storage are growing faster than data demands. Fortunately SUSE wants to reduce your storage costs, which is why it released the new SUSE Enterprise Storage 3.

University fuels NextCloud's improved monitoring

Encouraged by a potential customer - a large, German university - the German start-up company NextCloud has improved the resource monitoring capabilities of its eponymous cloud services solution, which it makes available as open source software. The improved monitoring should help users scale their implementation, decide how to balance work loads and alerting them to potential capacity issues. NextCloud’s monitoring capabilities can easily be combined with OpenNMS, an open source network monitoring and management solution. Read more

Linux Kernel Developers on 25 Years of Linux

One of the key accomplishments of Linux over the past 25 years has been the “professionalization” of open source. What started as a small passion project for creator Linus Torvalds in 1991, now runs most of modern society -- creating billions of dollars in economic value and bringing companies from diverse industries across the world to work on the technology together. Hundreds of companies employ thousands of developers to contribute code to the Linux kernel. It’s a common codebase that they have built diverse products and businesses on and that they therefore have a vested interest in maintaining and improving over the long term. The legacy of Linux, in other words, is a whole new way of doing business that’s based on collaboration, said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation said this week in his keynote at LinuxCon in Toronto.

Car manufacturers cooperate to build the car of the future

Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) is a project of the Linux Foundation dedicated to creating open source software solutions for the automobile industry. It also leverages the ten billion dollar investment in the Linux kernel. The work of the AGL project enables software developers to keep pace with the demands of customers and manufacturers in this rapidly changing space, while encouraging collaboration. Walt Miner is the community manager for Automotive Grade Linux, and he spoke at LinuxCon in Toronto recently on how Automotive Grade Linux is changing the way automotive manufacturers develop software. He worked for Motorola Automotive, Continental Automotive, and Montevista Automotive program, and saw lots of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) like Ford, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota in action over the years.

Torvalds at LinuxCon: The Highlights and the Lowlights

On Wednesday, when Linus Torvalds was interviewed as the opening keynote of the day at LinuxCon 2016, Linux was a day short of its 25th birthday. Interviewer Dirk Hohndel of VMware pointed out that in the famous announcement of the operating system posted by Torvalds 25 years earlier, he had said that the OS “wasn’t portable,” yet today it supports more hardware architectures than any other operating system. Torvalds also wrote, “it probably never will support anything other than AT-harddisks.” Read more
