Ubuntu

planet.gentoo: I installed Ubuntu Studio 8.10 on my laptop a couple of days ago, wiping out the unused Windows Vista partition. Eh, the laptop didn't come with a recovery DVD anyway. I know. Why Ubuntu, right?

is there a long-term future for the netbook?

Filed under
Linux

zerias.blogspot: Case in point would be a vendor that claimed that returns of their Linux netbook were 400% higher than returns of their Windows Xp netbook. What the vendor didn't mention, and then promptly buried when it was brought up, is that the sales of the Linux netbooks were well over 4 times the sales of the Windows Xp netbooks.

Cloud convenience is killing the open source database

Open source has never been more important or, ironically, irrelevant. As developers increasingly embrace the cloud to shorten time to market, they're speeding past open source, making it even harder to build an open source business. After all, if open source were largely a way for developers to skirt legal and purchasing departments to get the software they needed when they needed it, the cloud ups that convenience to the nth degree.
