Why Novell is like Napster-era Metallica

Filed under
SUSE

c|net blogs: Remember back when Metallica isolated the majority of their fan base with their over-the-top stance against Napster and what it did to the band and the fans that supported them for all those years? That's how I am starting to think of Novell.

SUSE

MaximumPC: The way the Linux world has been heating up this year, it was hard not to feel a pang of excitement over the release of the latest openSUSE. Well, it’s been a couple of weeks now, and I’ve given it the old college try, but I just can’t maintain any enthusiasm for this lackluster distro update.

Novell might never get a penny from SCO

Filed under
SUSE

daniweb: Remember when SCO used to be known as a big fish in the Unix OS pond, well respected and pretty much a pillar in this particular vendor community? No, neither do I. The image of a company that sought to claim IBM had somehow inappropriately contributed to Linux development, a bizarre tactical strategy to leverage some kind of financial settlement from Big Blue if you listen to many industry analysts, is the one that pops into my head every time I see the letters S, C and O now.

SuSE 10.3: How the mighty have fallen.

Filed under
SUSE

techiemoe rants: Since around SuSE 10.0, I've not been as happy with SuSE for a number of reasons, most of them aesthetic. There is also that thing about a major corporate Linux still not including something as simple as MP3 support and buying into the Microsoft protection racket.

  • Fedora LiveUSB Creator artwork
    As my first job as Red Hat design intern I received from Mo a task to create some icons for Fedora LiveUSB Creator. The liveusb-creator is a cross-platform tool for easily installing live operating systems on to USB flash drives. A Live USB system stored on flash memory, sometimes called a stick, lets you boot any USB-bootable computer into a Fedora operating system environment without writing to that computer’s hard disk.

  • Please sign off your patches
    One aspect of open source that appeals to many people is the idea that anyone can contribute. All it takes is a great idea, a little bit of work, and you can have fame, glory, and more conference t-shirts than you know what to do with. The reality is often not quite as simple for many reasons. A common complication is software licencing. There are plenty of other locations talking about open source software licencing and the complications there of so this one will be narrowly focused and have a simple request: When submitting patches for the Linux kernel, whether to official kernel mailings lists or to Fedora, please remember sign off your patches.

Open source is the only way to operate, Accuvant researchers to release open source RFID access tool

  • VA Secretary: Open source is the only way to operate
    Veterans Affairs Department Secretary Bob McDonald voiced his support for open source technology July 30, as he outlined a broad reform plan that includes streamlining information technology and taking a more "holistic" look at customer service. "We have over 200 databases with customer information. That means if you want to change your address, you have to go to at least nine places to change your address at VA," said McDonald during a morning keynote July 30 at a conference in Bethesda, Md.
  • Accuvant researchers to release open source RFID access tool
    Security researchers have long known about the vulnerabilities of the RFID readers that many buildings use instead of door locks, but facilities managers have been slow to upgrade to more secure systems. To draw attention to the problem, at next week's Black Hat conference, Accuvant researchers will be releasing an open source piece of hardware that can be used to circumvent these readers.

LaaS (Linux as a Service) -- What you can expect when you build a Linux server in the cloud

Now, before I go any further with this, I should say that LaaS (Linux as a Service) is really not one of the acknowledged ?aaS acronyms. Linux servers in the cloud are generally considered PaaS (platform as a service) or IaaS (infrastructure as a service) offerings depending on how much control you need to exert over their configuration (the more you have to do, the more likely they're IaaS). The distinction may not matter unless you're setting up multiple systems in the cloud that need to interract with each other. In fact, Amazon doesn't even use these terms to describe its EC2 offerings. Read more
