Subject: Hadoop: Big Data Opportunity, Powered By Open Source

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Wondering what comes after the cloud? Literally, usually sunshine — haha. But metaphorically speaking, the next great frontier may well be big-data. And Hadoop, an open-source project enjoying ever-increasing buzz as of late, will likely be at the fore as that niche evolves. If you don’t know much about Hadoop, it’s time to learn.

Subject: Difference engine: Free is too expensive

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

LINUX, the free operating system that brought professional-grade computing to the lowly PC, has come a long way since doing something as simple as switching off meant performing secret handshakes or offering arcane prayers to the computer gods (eg, “computername ~ # shutdown -h now”). Today, practically all Linux distributions (some 450 are in circulation) hide their stark command lines behind prettified user-interfaces such as Gnome, KDE, Enlightenment or Xfce which mimic the desktop metaphor familiar to a billion Windows users. Should it ever be necessary, shutting down a Linux machine gracefully nowadays involves no more than a few clicks of a mouse.[b]Note: Very typical praise to crush blog. Ends with very negative conclusion. Many good rebuttal comments in the feedback though.[/b]

Subject: GNU Health wins FSF's Project of Social Benefit award

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

(You can check the original post at http://www.meanmicio.org/2012/04/gnu-health-wins-fsf-project-of-social.html )Just got back to Buenos Aires after a 10 days in the United States and El Salvador, and finally got some time to write about the award, what it means to GNU Solidario and to the community at large.The FSF's ceremony took place at the University of Massachusetts, Boston (UMass) on Sunday March 25th, during the LibrePlanet 2012 conference. On the ceremony, there were two awards :Award for the Advancement of Free Software: Yukihiro Matsumoto, creator of the Ruby Programming Language. Congratulations Matz ! Award for the Project of Social Benefit: GNU Health As stated by the FSF, the Award for Projects of Social Benefit is presented to the project or team responsible for applying free software, or the ideas of the free software movement, in a project that intentionally and significantly benefits society in other aspects of life. This award stresses the use of free software in the service of humanity. I want to thank the committee for choosing GNU Health :Suresh Ramasubramanian, Peter H. Salus, Wietse Venema, Raj Mathur, Hong Feng, Andrew Tridgell, Jonas Oberg, Vernor Vinge, Richard Stallman, Fernanda G. Weiden, Harald Welte, and Rob Savoyes. We take this award with great pride, but also with great responsibility. We share this award with novel previous winners Wikipedia, Creative Commons, Internet Archives, Groklaw, Tor and Sahana Disaster Management System. I see Free Software as social activism. GNU Health goal is to improve the lives of the underprivileged by means of Free Software. We deliver a Free Health and Hospital Information System to health centers all around the world. Because is Free (Freedom), the software belongs to them. They can modify it, improve it, and localize it to their needs ! This is the Free Software philosophy. GNU Health provides the basis for sustainable and universal medicine, no matter the economical status of the health center or the patient. After all, Health is a non-negotiable human right and never should belong to the greedy corporations. Health is a public good, and so it should be health informatics. I want to thank the Free Software Foundation and its creator, Richard Stallman, for creating the environment for social justice and equity. Thank you to the Free Software community :Python, Postgresql, Tryton, GNU/Linux, GnuPG and Wikimedia foundation are just some of the building blocks for GNU Health. Without a free software community, GNU Health wouldn't exist. Thank you to the governments adopting Free Software as a Public good. Thank you to the community, to all of you who contribute your time and talent to improve GNU Health ! Finally,I want to dedicate this award to the men and women who anonymously give their lives to help the underprivileged. You are an example for all of us !

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

For years now, China has annually invested hundreds of millions of dollars in developing and implementing a sophisticated IT standards strategy. That strategy is intended to advance a variety of national interests, most obviously to enable Chinese manufacturers to retain a larger share of domestic market sales, and gain a larger and higher margin share of global sales.  But there are other motivations at work as well, one of which ensuring that Chinese authorities can keep a close watch on the Chinese people.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I've always been interested in small and lightweight Linux distributions. One of the nice things about following DistroWatch regularly is that I see release announcements for distros that I may have missed, ones which may have a very different take on how to fill a given niche. PapugLinux is such a distro. It's a live CD designed to work well on legacy hardware but which also can be installed and updated.

Subject: Why Linux on the Desktop is Alive!

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

While helping to edit last week’s Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, I came across an article written by Tony Bradley of PC World entitled “Why Linux on the Desktop Is Dead”. In it he cited his “30 days with Ubuntu Linux” test as proof that Linux on the desktop is not, and will not be a credible option for users.I don’t often use this blog to take exception to things I read (otherwise it’s probably all I’d ever do), but in this case, I felt that I had to respond.
