Filed under
Linux

Open-source technology is one solution to this challenge, especially where it allows the tight integration of software with a range of hardware options. 
An important aspect of this is the creation of open-source platforms around the Linux operating system, which has a growing software infrastructure that OEMs can take advantage of to develop and debug designs.

Millions Of Opportunities For GNU/Linux To Take Over

Filed under
GNU
Linux

No matter. Millions of servers will not be properly migrated to M$’s next release on time so they might as well migrate to GNU/Linux and take charge of their futures rather than be dependent on M$’s schedule and desire for cash. Why should your organization uproot itself because another organization wants a fresh influx of cash? Do the right thing. Go to Debian GNU/Linux and FLOSS. It will work for you, not M$.

Debian

For years, I used to run Debian sid (unstable) on all my personal machines. Laptops, workstations, sometimes even my personal servers years ago ran sid. Sid was, as its name implies, unstable. Sometimes things broke. But it wasn’t a big deal, because I could always get in there and fix it fairly quickly, whatever it was. It was the price I paid for the latest and greatest.

When Linux Distros Are Abandoned

Filed under
Linux

It was a hard lesson learned.

The problem was, it wasn’t just me who suffered. It was dozens of people in my organization, and had this happened a month later than it did, it could have been hundreds.

We’ve had some fairly high profile Linux distros fold up their tents and move along.

It’s never for a good reason but the fact remains: When a distro ceases to exist, a lot of people get left in the lurch.
