SUSE

I downloaded the DVD iso off the Novell website, and burned it using Nero; I rebooted the computer, and went through the installation process; nothing spectacular about the installation. Once fully installed, I made a user account as instructed by the wizard, and everything was ready to go.

Some guy called Martin Girard had an article published in OS news cheekily entitled Why Desktop Linux Will Not Take off, and Why You Don’t Want It to. Isn’t this the year of GNU/Linux on the desktop again? That’s what the good people at Nuxified reckon as per Danijel Orsolic’s article How Microsoft is loosing to GNU/Linux. Here’s why I picked this up as opposed to letting the two articles just cancel each other out, and it’s back to the point I originally started off with about literacy. Kids these days are different to kids in my day.

A look at Linux

OS

Vista, Microsoft's new version of Windows, is almost ready to roll.

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
