SUSE Linux Enterprise has Been Selected by Renault

Filed under
SUSE

Microsoft and Novell announced that French carmaker Renault SA has joined the growing ranks of customers taking advantage of the two companies' cooperation to deliver greater interoperability between Microsoft Windows and SUSE Linux Enterprise.

Under the agreement, Microsoft will deliver to Renault more than 1,000 certificates for priority support subscriptions to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell, as Renault consolidates existing Linux distributions to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server with the goal of improving interoperability and taking better advantage of virtualization.

"Working with Microsoft to jointly build and support solutions to improve interoperability and deliver powerful new virtualization capabilities is paying great dividends for our customers," said Susan Heystee, vice president and general manager of global strategic alliances for Novell.

SUSE/Microsoft Vapourware

Companies that adopt Novell's SUSE are foolish. They get absolutely nothing in return receive nothing extra apart from 'tax' for mythical unsubstantiated patent claims. Interoperability is just a decoy. There's nothing missing in other offerings. It's like offering you an aura along with your plasma ball.

The ignorance in this area is astounding. The Redmond/Waltham hypnosis has had some people believe they get extra from Novell. Well, that's what one gets when Bill Gates and Microsoft literally own a lot of the media and send messages advocating SLED/S, for which Microsoft gets paid handsomely.

One day people will realise the truth. We already know all about SCO...

Why Do People Contribute to Open Source Projects?

Open source development is the future of software. It’s great for users like you and me because open source software is usually free (not always) and often safer to use because malicious code is less likely to be implemented. But what compels developers to contribute code for free? After all, writing code requires time, effort, and expertise. And while it’s true that open source developers can make money, it’s certainly easier through proprietary channels. Read more

OpthalmicDocs Releases Open Source Files for Portable Retinal Scanning Technology

We hear enough about how so many third world diseases are preventable, but people just lack the resources; preventable diseases can too easily become severely crippling, or even deadly, due to the condition of poverty. We also hear enough good stories about people who are using their medical and technical knowledge to change this fact. Dr. Sheng Chiong Hong is one such person. Traveling in Kenya, Neapl, and Malaysia exposed him directly to eye care issues, and he was determined to do something about preventable conditions that lead to blindness when undiagnosed and untreated.

Android automotive system features three displays

Mitsubishi’s “FlexConnect.IVI” automotive system runs Android on a TI Jacinto 6 SoC, and drives IVI, HUD, and cluster displays simultaneously. The trouble with most in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems is that they’re mounted in the center of the dashboard, and therefore not ideally located for the driver. Yet the display also needs to be accessible from the front seat passenger. Mitsubishi Electric’s FlexConnect.IVI system follows the trend of integrating IVI screens with a separate GUI instrument cluster, and also adds a third GUI heads-up display (HUD) display projected against the windshield for greater driver safety.
