TuxMachines: NoSQL pioneer to inject your database with ACID

Monday 5th of January 2015 07:08:39 PM

The firm already has a prototype that’s in the hands of early customers with plans to go public in 2015, The Register has learned.

The move follows delivery of an ACID-compliant graph database for use with FoundationDB’s existing NoSQL engine.

The document database, like FoundationDB’s graph store, would run on top of the company’s recently upgraded key-value store engine. If it is successful, FoundationDB could succeed in throwing up another bridge between the once-separate worlds of NoSQL and relational databases.

TuxMachines: Hands-on with Makulu Linux Xfce 7.0: The most beautiful Linux distro I have ever seen

Monday 5th of January 2015 06:57:08 PM

The latest release of Makulu Linux has two major things going for it: first, it is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, rather than Debian, and second, it uses the Xfce desktop. Makulu seems to be doing a tour or rotation of desktops so perhaps having Xfce shouldn't be a surprise, anyway.

The Release Announcement / Release Notes give some interesting insight into the background and development of this release, as well as the major features of this release. As always with Makulu Linux, aesthetics was a major focus, and it includes loads of beautiful wallpapers, themes, icons and fonts. The other major focus was speed, thus the choice of Xfce for the desktop, and Firefox rather than Chrome, the synapse launcher rather than slingscold, and the inclusion or omission of various other packages.

TuxMachines: Red Hat Marks a Strong 2014, Sharpens Focus on OpenStack

Monday 5th of January 2015 06:31:36 PM

As 2014 ended, there were many eloquent summaries of the state of open source and the state of cloud computing, but one of the most focused ones came from Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst. In an online post that was fresh on the heels of a knockout financial quarter for Red Hat, Whitehurst lauded the fact that open source technology is now pervasive, and provided glimpses of how his company is gaining momentum with its cloud efforts.

“Today, it is almost impossible to name a major player in IT that has not embraced open source,” Whitehurst said. “Only a few short years ago, many would have argued we would never see that day.”

LXer: When ‘Release Early, Release Often’ Is a Problem

Monday 5th of January 2015 03:19:12 PM
Sometimes it’s time to just coast for a while. Otherwise a project runs the risk of introducing unnecessary bloat or fixing what isn’t broken, thereby causing unnecessary problems for users — as has happened with GNOME, and before that (and to a lesser degree), KDE.
