Red Hat

“It’s been fast,” says CEO Jim Whitehurst, adding that, at this pace, Red Hat Tower will be at capacity in two years. “We thought it would take a lot longer than that.”
Calling it a “good problem” to have, Whitehurst says there’s been no talk yet of finding additional space, but says the team will likely have to start planning another expansion soon.

Fedora 22 Review: A Great Distro, With Some Tweaks

Reviews

Fedora 22 was released last month and, as expected, it brought many new features and introduced many new technologies to Fedora users. I am a Plasma user. Fedora uses Gnome as the default desktop environment (DE). So the question was which version to download.

The good news is that Fedora is one of the Linux distributions (distros) which makes it easy to use your desktop environment of choice. There is no prodigal son, with exceptional privileges, which makes the lives of other DEs hard. Everyone is treated equally. Almost.

It’s very easy to install multiple DEs on a Fedora system, but for the sake of purity, and this review, I downloaded both: the default Workstation and the KDE spin.

  • Supporting Open Source Video Conferencing

    I wanted to watch the Fedora Council meeting earlier today but ran into problems on all of my machines due to how the video hangouts work - you pretty much have to install Google Chrome (edit: removed part about Chromium as a possible alternative after comment about actual experience) and I'd rather not do that if I can avoid it.

    I'm not trying to citicize the choice of Hangouts for these video meetings because there's not a viable alternative right now that can host, broadcast and record video conferences.

  • dnf (or yum) and metalinks

    Like yum before it, dnf also uses (by default) metalinks served by Fedora Mirrormanager mirrorlist servers. Metalinks are a great thing, but it seems like many people don’t understand them or realize what great benefits they provide, so I thought I would do this post to help.

Interviews: Linus Torvalds Answers Your Question

Linus: You can say the word "systemd", It's not a four-letter word. Seven letters. Count them. I have to say, I don't really get the hatred of systemd. I think it improves a lot on the state of init, and no, I don't see myself getting into that whole area. Yeah, it may have a few odd corners here and there, and I'm sure you'll find things to despise. That happens in every project. I'm not a huge fan of the binary logging, for example. But that's just an example. I much prefer systemd's infrastructure for starting services over traditional init, and I think that's a much bigger design decision. Yeah, I've had some personality issues with some of the maintainers, but that's about how you handle bug reports and accept blame (or not) for when things go wrong. If people thought that meant that I dislike systemd, I will have to disappoint you guys. Read more
