Dear Admin of Tuxmachines,

I would just like to request that you could maybe link to the real authors of articles.
"Distro Review - Xubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex"

It appears that the owner of http://linuxblogonline.org/ is just copying and pasting other people's articles without having the common courtesy of providing a link back to the original.

I was quite surprised to see that my article appeared on TuxMachines in the first place, but when I saw that the link was to another site, I thought i'd post.

To be honest, anybody who writes an article will gladly let you copy and paste it, but at least give the author some credit via a link or trackback.

I have seen many sites such as http://linuxblogonline.org/ which get a collection of articles which they claim as their own, and once they have generated enough traffic, start filling the site with google adsense adverts.

Whatsmore he is actually including images which are hosted on my server as well. Once in a while doesn't matter, but article thieves get their site on Digg, the rest of us pay for their image bandwidth.

A simple Google of the article title would have led you to the original site.

Thanks in advance.

No problem at all Susan, I

No problem at all Susan,

I am a regular visitor to TuxMachines, and was rather surprised at the link. I have no problem at all with any of my articles being used at all, but a link back is basic courtesy, something which the owner of linuxblogonline seems to have forgotten. As it happens I have deleted a lot of out-of-date articles now anyway, so only the recent reviews and howto's remain on the front page at LxH.

I have often posted howto guides and articles by other authors both on Dreamlnux Forums and The Linux-Hardcore, but always with proper recognition for the original owner.

Anyway, thanks for the quick reply, and keep up the good work, TuxMachines is a truly great site.

re: copied articles

I'm sure am sorry about that. I try to avoid that happening, but sometimes my memory and/or search fail me. So, I always appreciate it when someone informs me of articles and sites that steal others' work. Nothing irritates more than content thieves. I've had it happen to my work before too.

As it turns out, I had linked to your original article when it first came out and I changed the link in the other as well.

Again, I apologize and I will try to remember that http://linuxblogonline.org/ is a content thief. Feel free to remind me if needed.

Sincerely,
Susan

What happens if pictures get moved by mistake?

Well, accidents can happen Wink

When Diverse Network ASICs Meet A Unifying Operating System

And it has also been a decade since switch upstart Arista Networks launched its Extensible Operating System, or EOS, which is derived from Linux. [...] The cross-platform nature of ArcOS, coupled with its ability to run in any function on the network, could turn out to be the key differentiator. A lot of these other NOSes were point solutions that could only be deployed in certain parts of the network, and that just creates animosity with the incumbent vendors that dominate the rest of the networking stack. Given the mission-critical nature of networking in the modern datacenter, it costs a great deal to qualify a new network operating system, and it can take a lot of time. If ArcOS can run across more platforms, qualify faster, and do more jobs in the network, then, says Garg, it has a good chance of shaking up switching and routing. “That totally changes the business conversation and the TCO advantages that we can bring to a customer across the entirety of their network.” Read more

  • 9 steps to awesome with Kubernetes/OpenShift presented by Burr Sutter

    Burr Sutter gave a terrific talk in India in July, where he laid out the terms, systems and processes needed to setup Kubernetes for developers. This is an introductory presentation, which may be useful for your larger community of Kubernetes users once you’ve already setup User Provisioned Infrastructure (UPI) in Red Hat OpenShift for them, though it does go into the deeper details of actually running the a cluster. To follow along, Burr created an accompanying GitHub repository, so you too can learn how to setup an awesome Kubernetes cluster in just 9 steps.

  • Weaveworks Named a Top Kubernetes Contributor

    But anyone who knows the history of Weaveworks might not be too surprised by this. Weaveworks has been a major champion of Kubernetes since the very beginning. It might not be too much of a coincidence that Weaveworks was incorporated only a few weeks after Kubernetes was open sourced, five years ago. In addition to this, the very first elected chair of the CNCF’s Technical Oversight Committee, responsible for technical leadership to the Cloud Native Foundation was also headed up by our CEO, Alexis Richardson(@monadic) (soon to be replaced by the awesome Liz Rice (@lizrice) of Aqua Security).

  • Improving trust in the cloud with OpenStack and AMD SEV

    This post contains an exciting announcement, but first I need to provide some context! Ever heard that joke “the cloud is just someone else’s computer”? Of course it’s a gross over-simplification, but there’s more than a grain of truth in it. And that raises the question: if your applications are running in someone else’s data-centre, how can you trust that they’re not being snooped upon, or worse, invasively tampered with?
