The power of open-source development
As Paul Cormier, EVP of Engineering and president of Products and Technologies at Red Hat, Inc., led the keynote address on Day Two of Red Hat Summit 2016 at Moscone N & W in San Francisco, he began by looking back over the early days of the summit. Cormier looked back at the vision and the evolution of open source and said he was amazed at what has happened over the past 12 years and at how IT is evolving.

When Ubuntu was new, those who questioned it were mostly Debian developers, disgruntled because they were not hired or because Ubuntu failed to acknowledge its debt to Debian. Today, however, a vocal minority seems to view Canonical Software, the company behind Ubuntu, as a Microsoft in the making. From being the uncritical darling of open source, Canonical is closely and cynically scrutinized, and its motives constantly questioned.
So how did this transformation happen? Suspicion about corporations is hardly new in open source, yet Canonical seems singled out in a way that SUSE or Red Hat only occasionally are.
My only experience with Linux was playing around with it around 10 years ago. Essentially, I'm starting from scratch - so I have no bias to either OS. I'm hoping both platforms are well documented.
I'm seeing a relatively even split from my research so far, which tells me that there's no wrong decision here (yay!).
Project details (if it helps): I'd like to have a RESTful API hosted on a Linux machine on a DMZ. This will be accessed via our company's public IP. It will connect to a PostgreSQL database (either on the same machine, or a separate one - I'll have to look into best practices). The API will be consumed by client software that I'm writing (both desktop, and companion mobile apps). It's just going to be JSON data going back and forth.
Thanks in advance, looking forward to reading your opinions.submitted by /u/rhonage

I'm working on developing an internal Linux training course. I plan to cover basics (cli, package managers, etc) over a 3 day length. Are their any good resources available to use, copy from, or act as a guide? PowerPoints, videos, and the like? I want it to be hands on using live USB drives. Probably Ubuntu. I think we will also buy The Linux Bible for reference books.submitted by /u/NeoShader
