Reddit: Do you want Google Drive and Google Photos on Linux?

Wednesday 8th of July 2015 10:10:02 AM

I want them too and the only way to make this happen is to say to Google we want them!

  1. Go to Google Drive on the web (https://www.google.com/drive/):
  2. Click the settings menu (the gear icon)
  3. Click Help.
  4. Click Send feedback.
  5. Say you want it on Linux
  6. Repeat for Google photos (https://www.google.com/photos/)

If we are enough to ask maybe Google will listen us and make Google Drive and Google Photos available on Linux.

TuxMachines: 10 compelling reasons to consider open source for your enterprise storage needs

Wednesday 8th of July 2015 10:04:17 AM

Enterprise needs are a different beast from those of SMBs. Few areas define this as clearly as storage. Instead of storing a few hundred gigabytes, you're looking at terabytes and maybe even petabytes. Failover, redundancy, security, backups—all essential when it comes to enterprise storage.

You might think the only viable solutions for such tasks are proprietary solutions. Fortunately, for businesses and those working within them, that assumption is incorrect. Open source has come a long way and now powers the backbone of enterprise computing—and that includes storage. Don't believe me? Take a look at the following 10 reasons why open source could be the right storage solution for your organization.

Making the Case for Koha: Why Libraries Should Consider an Open Source ILS

When Engard educates people on what open source is, what it means to use open source software, what types of software are available, which companies use it, and who trusts it, they see that their fears are unfounded, she says. To back up her discussions with facts, she maintains bibliographies on open source and open source security. She also has a set of bookmarks on Delicious, and she wrote a book, Practical Open Source Software for Libraries. “[W]hen people come to me and say open source is too risky … I have facts and figures, just what librarians want, to say no, all software has potential risk associated with it. You have to evaluate software side by side, and look at it, and really take the time to compare it. … I know you’re going to pick the open source solution over the proprietary because it is so quickly developed, so quickly fixed, so ahead of the curve as far as technology is concerned.” Read more
