  • Red Hat: The Future Of Open Source

    OpenStack is an open source cloud operating system that allows businesses to develop their own solutions for any operating needs, resulting in a lean, efficient, and effective private enterprise solution. At the very core of the cloud segment, is its foundation of the Linux software. Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), while continuing to grow in the mid-teens, will tremendously help to grow another segment of Red Hat's business as they develop and grow their open source cloud software, Red Hat OpenStack. RHEL makes up nearly 67% of the $2 billion Linux market, which will allow them to cross-sell Red Hat OpenStack to new and continuing clients as the shift to the hybrid cloud grows. Red Hat has been actively marketing and selling their emerging cloud technologies, with this segment of their business growing at over a 35% CAGR. The transition to the cloud by companies all around the world will make up an addressable market of $5 billion for OpenStack, and we believe that Red Hat is in a position to take control of this market by leveraging their successful Linux operating system.

  • Red Hat's Cormier dishes on OpenShift.io and Container Health Index

    Cormier: In the past, developers would just go grab code and throw it over the wall to the operators. And now, what's happening with DevOps, operators are giving developers a platform with all the pieces they need. By the time they're done building [an app], it's ready to be put in operation because it's already on supported components. It's on supported containers, for example, which is a Linux distro. They don't have to replatform it. I've said it until I was blue in the face -- a container is Linux. It's just Linux carved up in a different way.

  • Red Hat's Head Of Products On Competing With Docker, Teaming With AWS And A Container Services 'Renaissance' For The Channel

    At open-source technologies giant Red Hat, executives say it's their company—not Docker—that is the player to beat in containers for the enterprise. Paul Cormier, an executive vice president who heads Red Hat's technology and products organizations, sat down with CRN during Red Hat Summit 2017 in Boston and had plenty to say about the competition around containers. "You need a production-ready environment to really start to deploy [containers] and bet your business on it," Cormier said, "and we're the only one that's proved we can do that."

  • Red Hat Release Next Generation of OpenShift Online

    Ever looked up at the night sky and tried to identify specific celestial bodies out of the millions you can see? Stellarium is an awesome open source planetarium application available in Fedora to help you identify and track objects in the night sky.

  • Crouton Fedora + Wayland. Yes, please!

    As of version 50, Chrome OS includes a Wayland server. Even though this is mostly for running Android applications, even my old Toshiba Chromebook which doesn’t have Android support, has Wayland in it. Therefore Crouton Fedora can now fully utilize it and run GUI applications on it, mixed with Chrome OS windows!

  • It's Now Possible To Run Fedora On Chromebooks With Wayland

    With Wayland now being present on Chrome OS for the Android compatibility layer, modifications to Crouton were made to allow Fedora Workstation with Wayland to run atop these Wayland-enabled Chromebooks.

    Using Crouton to load a Linux distribution on a Chromebook/Chromebox no longer has to rely upon using a xorg-server now that Wayland is present on ChromeOS 50+.

Linux 4.12 RC3, Linux Foundation Project Updates

  • Linux 4.12-rc3
    Hey, things continue to look good, and rc3 isn't even very big. I'm hoping there's not another shoe about to drop, but so far this really feels like a nice calm release cycle, despite the size of the merge window. Knock wood. Anyway, rc3 has a little bit of everything. The biggest single change is actually just a documentation update (the intel pstate docs were converted to rst format), so the diffstat actually looks a bit odd with a wuarter just being documentation. There's also some tooling updates (perf and some bpf selftest). But if you ignore those two pieces, it looks pretty normal: two thirds of it being drivers (gpu, nvme, scsi, tty, block), with the remainder being about half networking and haf "misc" (core kernel, header files, XFS, arch updates). Go forth and test, Linus
  • Linux 4.12-rc3 Kernel Released
    Linus Torvalds has announced the third weekly test candidate for the upcoming Linux 4.12 kernel debut. Linus commented of Linux 4.12-rc3 that it isn't a very big release over the prior RCs and so far it's a "nice calm release cycle." The biggest change this past week was actually documentation updates.
  • Linus Torvalds Announced the Third Release Candidate of the Linux 4.12 Kernel
    Even if it's Memorial weekend, Linus Torvalds is on the job announcing the release and immediate availability of the third RC (Release Candidate) milestone of the upcoming Linux 4.12 kernel series.

  • Stronger Together: How Cloud Foundry Supports Other Communities
    The open source Cloud Foundry application development platform was publicly announced over six years ago, and along the way, we have connected with other projects, adopting technologies from other open source communities as they matured. For example, before Docker was a company or even a project, the Cloud Foundry platform was using Linux containers to isolate deployed applications from one another. Our container implementation wasn’t built in a general purpose way like Docker’s; it wasn’t designed to solve all of the potential use cases for a container runtime. It was designed specifically to support the stateless web applications that Cloud Foundry was initially intended to support, and to do that in a secure, multitenant fashion.

Reasons to use the GNOME 3 desktop environment, cool KDE tweaks, and GNOME integration for Qt based application

  • 11 reasons to use the GNOME 3 desktop environment for Linux
    Late last year, an upgrade to Fedora 25 caused issues with the new version of KDE Plasma that made it difficult for me to get any work done. So I decided to try other Linux desktop environments for two reasons. First, I needed to get my work done. Second, having been using KDE exclusively for many years, I thought it might be time to try some different desktops.

  • Gnome integration for Qt based applications in Flatpak
    Following blog post from Patrick Griffis about new themes support in Flatpak, we started working on supporting this new feature too. Currently wherever you start a Qt application, it would always look like a KDE application or something would be missing, like icons so you would end up with bad experience and mixed feelings. This is going to change now as we now support Gnome in form of icons, widget style and Qt platform theme and with this, when you run a Qt application in Gnome, it will look definitely better and more natively than before. We packaged regular adwaita icons which are used by default in Gnome as extension of freedesktop runtime. For widget style we use adwaita-qt style, which is a Qt style attempting to look like Gtk’s adwaita and the most important part putting this all together is QGnomePlatform, a Qt platform theme which reads your Gnome configuration and applies it to running Qt applications. QGnomePlatform also enforces Qt apps to use adwaita icons and adwaita-qt style by default so that’s another reason why it is important. Both adwaita-qt and QGnomePlatform projects are by the way authored by Martin Bříza, a collegue of mine from Red Hat so if you meet him in person somewhere buy him a beer for that he cares about Qt integration in Gnome :). Now coming to a question how to install this and make it work. Basically all you need to do is install following extensions and you shold be done:
