What I Don't Like About Ubuntu Linux....

Filed under
Ubuntu

I've finally done it. I've managed to successfully install Ubuntu on a computer that runs at a decent speed. That said, I thought I'd give you my opinion of Ubuntu. Yes, I am a Linux guy, and I may always support Linux, but that doesn't mean I can't criticize it!

First I must say that the install process was pretty simple. I did test both the text-based and graphic-based installer, and the graphic-based installer was much easier to use. I found that the keyboard detection in the text-based installer was not always correct, and more configurations were asked about the host computer in general. The common user may not know the answer to all the questions asked.

Setting up DHCP might not also be easy for the common user. I forgot to plug my ethernet cable in, and Ubuntu obviously gave me an error, along with a few things to check before retrying the DHCP setup.

Containers: Resin.IO and Platform9

  • Resin.IO puts Linux and containers to work for IoT
    Resin.IO is working to make the use of containers and microservices useful tools to developers of Linux-based Internet of Things (IoT) applications. CEO Alexandros Marinos said the company has been working for three years to make mainstream containers attractive to developers of embedded workloads, such as those found in IoT applications. The company calls this the "Industrial Internet."
  • Platform9 Unveils Open Source Serverless Computing Framework
    Serverless computing is rapidly emerging as one of the favorite ways developers programmatically invoke cloud infrastructure. Instead of having to be aware of how their applications are consuming IT infrastructure, a serverless computing framework employs an event-driven architecture to make additional infrastructure resources available in real time as an application scales up and down. Today, Platform9 launched Fission, an open source implementation of a serverless computing framework based on the Kubernetes container orchestration engine originally developed by Google.
