Filed under
PCLOS

Adventures In Open Source: So after my positive experience of Mandriva 2008 it was time to reluctantly pack my bags and move on. My destination this time was PCLinuxOS 2007 which is not a distribution I'd tried before. So without further ado here is what happened:

Xubuntu 7.10: Solid as usual

Filed under
Ubuntu

distrogue: In Linux-land this week, it was pretty much Ubuntu Gutsy, Ubuntu Gutsy, and Ubuntu 7.10. The new additions, Gobuntu and Fluxbuntu, didn't seem to receive as much attention. As is tradition, neither did Xubuntu. But Xubuntu is still a solid system for people with older hardware.

Hidden Linux : ISO magic

Filed under
HowTos

tux love (pc world blogs): In Linux, you don't need to burn a CD or DVD image to a disc to take a look at its contents. Since "everything's a file", it's just a matter of mounting it. So do you mount an ISO file?

The Absent PCLinuxOS Release Cycle

Filed under
PCLOS

linux-blog.org: During distro comparisons, many call a lack of release cycle for PCLinuxOS one of its negative aspects. In my opinion, this is the most attractive and positive aspects of the small distribution. PCLinuxOS has a unique approach to releases and updates. Allow me a bit of time to show you the method in my madness on this one.

OpenSUSE 10.3: Installing And Running VMware Workstation 6.0.x

Filed under
HowTos

linux.wordpress.com: As I had VMware Workstation running on all my previous *SUSE distros, I as well installed the latest available version 6.0.2 on my openSUSE 10.3 desktop. Even though the latest openSUSE 10.3 comes with Virtualbox, problem being with it is that even the latest Virtialbox 1.5.2 doesn’t support running 64-bit guest OS.

Criticism of criticism of Linux

Filed under
Linux

beranger: 3+1 rants = Preston St. Pierre opines on Linux.com that X/OS is an undistinguished Red Hat clone, where "undistinguished" is rather disparaging, à la "why do we need it?" My problem is not "which RHEL 5 clone to use", but rather "why is RHEL 5 so castrated"?

How Is Ubuntu Doing as a Server Platform?

Filed under
Ubuntu

itjungle.com: Canonical jumped into the Unix distribution business in October 2004 and got into Linux server distribution in June 2006. With the launch last week of Ubuntu 7.10 for desktops and servers last week and the upcoming launch in April 2008 of a new Long Term Support variant of Ubuntu, it is reasonable to stop for a second and try to assess how well or poorly Ubuntu is doing on servers.

Why OpenStack is the wrong cloud for Red Hat to be building its future on

Just because one can make money from OpenStack doesn't mean one should. Red Hat, on its recent earnings call, gladly assumed the title of "Red Hat of OpenStack," meaning the "vendor that does certification and confidently allow[s] both hardware and software vendors to participate in the ecosystem." In a similar vein, I've called OpenStack Red Hat's "Linux moment," a chance to productize the growing cloud movement. Read more
