Dell is adding Pluribus Networks' new Linux-based network operating system to the growing list of third-party software that can run on its portfolio of open network switches.
The two companies announced June 11 that Pluribus will port its Open Netvisor Linux OS onto Dell's family of Open Networking 10G/40G switches, including the S6000-ON and S4048-ON. Pluribus, which targets its Netvisor operating system at cloud service providers, joins other network software vendors—such as Cumulus Networks (Linux-based OS), Midokura (network virtualization software) and Big Switch Networks (SDN platform)—to bring its software to Dell's Open Networking switches.
I have been watching the evolution of the Ubuntu Software Center for quite a while now. I had doubts about its interface and its speed, but I liked the fact that it offered an easy, down-to-earth interface that allowed users to install software easily.
However, I have to say that the way the Ubuntu Software Center has evolved is worrying me -- a lot.
I am not against the idea of selling software. What I am against, is confusing proprietary software with non-proprietary software, The Ubuntu Software Center seems to be doing just that.
