The First Of The Features Being Proposed For Fedora 23

Filed under
Red Hat

With Fedora 22 being well past its change deadline and the final release just being a few weeks out, developers are beginning to look at planning their features/changes for Fedora 23.

For Fedora 23 we're already looking at possible features of Fedora becoming more atomic-like and potentially shipping GNOME Wayland as the default desktop experience rather than an X.Org Server and potentially defaulting to the Btrfs file-system by default.. There's also been pipe dreams of going 64-bit only and switching away from Firefox as the default browser.

Will There Ever Be Another Red Hat?

Filed under
Red Hat

Will there ever be another Red Hat? It depends on what you are asking. If the question is will there be other companies that go public based on a model of using open source to power an enterprise software offering, the answer is clearly yes. Hortonworks just did so and the IPO pipeline is likely to include companies like Cloudera, MapR, Talend, and a few others in the near future.

But that’s not the most interesting way to understand this question. The better angle is this: Will there be another company that becomes a successful business based on the same or similar model as Red Hat? For the fiscal year ending in February 2015, Red Hat has annual revenues of $1.79 billion and is a profitable company. Will any company ever get to $1 billion or even $500 million in revenue from open source subscriptions and have a chance of being profitable?

CUDA in Fedora

Red Hat
  • CUDA enabled programs

    There is a new repository available with CUDA enabled programs in package format. This contains programs that have been linked to CUDA libraries or have CUDA support enabled. At the moment this is available only on Fedora 21, if there is sufficient feedback I will enable it also for other distributions.

  • Making It Easier To Deploy CUDA On Fedora

    While Fedora 21 ships with decent OpenCL support, if you're running the binary NVIDIA graphics driver on Fedora Linux and wishing to use CUDA-accelerated programs, it's a little bit easier today thanks to a new third-party package repository.

Red Hat explains its choice of scale-out storage hats

Filed under
Red Hat

Which Red Hat scale-out storage product should you choose: Ceph or Gluster?

Red Hat has brought Ceph – acquired with InkTank in May last year – up to its engineering standards and branded it Red Hat Ceph Storage, and is now touting it alongside its Red Hat Gluster Storage.

Both Ceph and Gluster are open source, scale-out, software-defined storage products running on commodity hardware. Red Hat suggests Ceph is better for OpenStack and Gluster for Big Data analytics, but both could do either job.

    Hi everyone! As you might know Qt4 has been deprecated (in the sense "you better start to port your code") since Qt5's first release in December 19th 2012. Since that point on Qt4 received only bugfixes. Upstream is about to release the last point release, 4.8.7. This means that only severe bugs like security ones will get a chance to get solved.
  • LinuxFest NorthWest 2015, ownCloud 8 for stable Fedora / EPEL
    The Fedora booth was extra fun this year. As well as the OLPC XO systems we usually have there (which always do a great job of attracting attention), Brian Monroe set up a whole music recording system running out of a Fedora laptop, with a couple of guitars, bass, keyboard, and even a little all-in-one electronic drum…thing. He had multitrack recording via Ardour and guitar effects from Guitarix. This was a great way to show off the capabilities of Fedora Jam, and was very popular all weekend – sometimes it seemed like every third person who came by was ready to crank out a few guitar chords, and we had several bass players and drummers too. I spent a lot of time away from the booth, but even when I was there we had pretty much a full band going quite often.
