NAB, Novell users explore desktop Linux

Filed under
SUSE

Fresh after the version 10.1 release of its OpenSuSE Linux operating system, Novell users hosted an installfest in Sydney this week where a number of enterprises fired up the penguin for the first time.

Organized by the Sydney Novell Users Group (SNUG), the installfest attracted about 30 people, from end users to IT managers representing a variety of organizations including the National Australia Bank, the University of Technology, Sydney, the NSW Department of Commerce, Railcorp, Canterbury City Council, Sydney Adventist Hospital, TAFE NSW, and the World Wide Fund for Nature.

SNUG president David Hayes said attendees were keen to get a hold of SuSE Linux and try it, because it now provides a "much better working model than earlier releases".

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
