For the first time, Zend Server is now also available on IBM's Power Linux platforms. Zend has been available for years on IBM i, but has not been available for Linux running on IBM's Power servers. IBM has had a busy year for Power, launching its Power8 server systems portfolio and doubling down on Linux.
Gutmans is very enthusiastic about IBM's strategy for Power. IBM recently announced that it was divesting its silicon fabrication capabilities.
The Windows operating systems is going out the front door in China and its place will be taken by a Linux distribution that will be used by the authorities and the governing body. The problem is that there is no real alternative, although at least one OS might be ready for the task, and that is Ubuntu Kylin.
These results are much more interesting than the earlier two-disk HDD benchmarks now using solid-state storage and having bought four Intel Series 530 120GB SSDs for making this an interesting RAID comparison. Four of the Intel SSDSC2BW120A4K5 solid-state drives were used in their 120GB capacity. Each of these solid-state drives retail for $75~80 USD and features sequential reads up to 540MB/s and sequential writes up to 480MB/s with its Serial ATA 3.0 interface. The 2.5-inch SSD 530 Series drive is rated by a five-year warranty and uses 20nm Intel NAND MLC memory.
Red Hat is looking to lure startups to its web of services with a new program that gives budding businesses free access to OpenShift Online, Red Hat's public cloud app development platform.
Ittia announced a design win for its lightweight embedded DB SQL database in Wasserbauer’s uClibc Linux based “Butler Gold” robot designed to feed cattle.
The Ittia DB SQL database and its antecedents, including .db*, have shipped in a wide variety of devices, including a circa 2005, Linux-based Oshkosh A3 HEMTT tactical truck. The lightweight, Linux- and Android-compatible embedded relational database has now found its way into barnyard life in its role within a Butler Gold cattle-feeding robot from Germany’s Wasserbauer GmbH. Linux has previously played a role in DeLaval’s Voluntary Milking System robot for cattle, but this is the first time we’ve seen it helping out on the other end.
This Public Service Announcement is a follow up to SA-CORE-2014-005 - Drupal core - SQL injection. This is not an announcement of a new vulnerability in Drupal.
Automated attacks began compromising Drupal 7 websites that were not patched or updated to Drupal 7.32 within hours of the announcement of SA-CORE-2014-005 - Drupal core - SQL injection. You should proceed under the assumption that every Drupal 7 website was compromised unless updated or patched before Oct 15th, 11pm UTC, that is 7 hours after the announcement.
To me, this is quite an important period because the only reason I migrated to GNU/Linux was to be free of crashes. Later I was glad I did because of performance, lack of malware, avoidance of the EULA from Hell, easy back-ups and installation, easy management, etc. Many other famous migrations happened around the same time and I would bet stability was an issue for them too. Certainly cost, flexibility, and independence from M$ were issues. Many businesses were spending ~$1000 per seat per annum just to keep things running, so it’s not just about licences or being “cheap”. FLOSS is the right way to do IT.
The command is "resize2fs /dev/vg_landisk/raid 1300G". The LV is 3500G.

Make each program do one thing well. To do a new job, build afresh rather than complicate old programs by adding new features.
To a newbie at Linux, it seems like emacs conflicts with the above philosophy and to a lesser extent, KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid).
Why would Stallman endorse this? Not trying to get people upset but I'm genuinely curious about it. Maybe I am misunderstanding Stallman's positions or something.submitted by dober420
