TuxMachines: App stores and Linux repositories: Maybe the worst ideas ever

Monday 13th of June 2016 06:05:34 PM

Technically, since we’re talking about Linux and free/open source software here, there’s nothing stopping someone from cloning the entire repository for a system before it goes offline and then providing that repository as a service to people who still want it. But this is a big undertaking and is something that a casual user of a platform simply isn’t going to do.

In my case, I absolutely would have done this for my N810. I would have cloned the entire repository, including system updates, and hosted it on my server for personal use (and provided it to anyone else who needed it). Would I have ever bothered to update it? Probably not. But I would have had it there for as long as I ran that device. But, alas, I didn’t know the company was killing the entire repository (perhaps I should have expected it, but I didn’t). So, I’m plum out of luck. Plus, I’m weird. Most people would absolutely not clone a repository and self-host it. That's just a crazy thing to do.

LXer: 4 Unique Ways Uber, Twitter, PayPal, and Hubspot Use Apache Mesos

Monday 13th of June 2016 05:26:20 PM
You know the saying: fast, cheap, or good, pick two. Uber, Twitter, PayPal, and Hubspot show that you can have all three with Apache Mesos.Apache Mesos is a cluster manager; it sits between the application layer and the operating system, and deploys and manages applications in large-scale clustered environments. But this dry description doesn't convey its vast scope for creative and ingenious solutions to large-scale problems.
