LinuxWorld: Novell Tunes Linux for .Net, Enterprise Desktops

Filed under
Linux

Novell opened the LinuxWorld Conference here with the introduction April 3 of the beta program for Mono 1.2, its open-source implementation of the Microsoft .Net Framework designed to help corporate IT and ISV developers migrate existing .NET applications to Linux and build new Linux and cross-platform applications.

Novell also announced it is developing a new Linux build service framework and disclosed details about the availability of SUSE Linux 10.1, the newest version of its community Linux distribution.

The OpenSUSE build service is a new Linux build service framework that will simplify the creation of Linux packages for not only SUSE Linux but for any other Linux distribution, and which will become the development platform for future SUSE Linux distributions.

It contains a server back-end and a client front-end.

There's only a handful of people at LinuxWorld Boston on Monday, but I've already heard some of them saying, "Why is everyone talking about virtualization?"

Mea culpa, here at the Ziff Davis family of publications, we've been covering Linux virtualization like paint too.

First off, we had Peter Galli's overview of how Red Hat and Novell are embracing Xen, "LinuxWorld: Virtualization Bake-In Off and Running". That was followed by an interview with VMWare's president Diane Greene and reviews of SWSoft's Virtuozzo for Linux 3.0 and Altiris Software Virtualization Solution 2.0.

So, why are we spending so much time on virtualization?

That Story.

Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Expands With Linkerd Project

  • Linkerd Project Joins Cloud Native Computing Foundation
    The Linux Foundation's Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is expanding its roster of hosted projects today with the inclusion of the open-source Linkerd service mesh project.
  • Linkerd Project Joins the Cloud Native Computing Foundation
    Today, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s (CNCF) Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) voted to accept Linkerd as the fifth hosted project alongside Kubernetes, Prometheus, OpenTracing and Fluentd. You can find more information on the project on their GitHub page. As with every project accepted by the CNCF -- and by extension, The Linux Foundation -- Linkerd is another great example of how open source technologies, both new and more established, are driving and participating in the transformation of enterprise IT.

Don’t let Microsoft exploit Bangladesh’s IT talent

Open-source software is effectively a public good and owned by everyone who uses it. So there is no conflict of interest in the Bangladesh government paying programmers to fix bugs and security holes in open-source software, because the Bangladesh government would be as much an owner of the software as anyone else, and benefit from the increased use-value of the improved software as much as any other user.
