Subject: Alternative screencast applications

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

I recently had occasion to explore some alternate screencast applications, since ogv files ceased playing back sanely on one of my systems. That issue was ultimately addressed by "upgrading" the video card in my aging Pentium 4 computer (with an old 128 MB nvidia card I got for $15). But not before I investigated some alternatives to recordmydesktop.

Subject: Ironic: HP Cloud Uses Oracle MySQL to Counter Microsoft SQL Azure

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

How’s this for ironic: The new HP Public Cloud will promote MySQL databases as a service, essentially leveraging Oracle’s software to compete with the Microsoft SQL Azure cloud, among other public cloud database services. HP and Oracle essentially hate each other. [url=http://www.talkincloud.com/hp-public-cloud-twist-oracle-mysql-vs-microsoft-sql-azure/]But here's why HP embraced MySQL[/url].

Subject: Citrix kicks down door, breaks up OpenStack cloud party

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

Two years ago, Rackspace went after Amazon in a big way, launching an open-source cloud initiative called OpenStack. Since that time, more than 150 companies have signed up to the anti-Amazon party. Last week, however, one big participant decided to leave OpenStack to create an after-party that by many accounts fixes a slew of problems inherent in OpenStack's design-by-committee approach.

Subject: OLPC alone, not enough to improve education

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

A 15 month study of 319 primary schools in rural Peru by the Inter-American Development bank (IDB) has concluded that the One Laptop per Child project is not enough, at least on its own, to improve educational outcomes. This is believed to be the first evaluation of OLPC that looks at student learning and was performed by taking 320 schools of which 210 were randomly selected to get OLPC-XO laptops.

"We announced in November that we would be taking Ubuntu to a lot of new devices," said Peter Goodall, product manager for Canonical. "We've been very popular in the PC desktop and server space. We have done really well. We realized that to take Ubuntu into the next generation, we needed to move beyond the traditional PC and server and move into devices like tablets, TVs and even cars."

Subject: Will the Raspberry Pi usher in a new generation of Linux users?

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

If you have not heard of the new Raspberry Pi yet, then you surely will soon enough. The new budget computer has just passed its Conformité Européenne testing, so now it can be stamped with the commonly seen CE mark and sold throughout Europe. A limited number of units were sold before the device was certified, and distribution was halted until the Pi passed the quality control tests. The distributors of the Raspberry Pi also took the time to make sure that the device meets all the regulations enforced by Australian, Canadian, and US supervisory bodies. So now the new Raspberry Pi, starting at the mere price of $25, is ready to be unleashed upon the world, but what does this mean for Linux users and developers?

I like to think that Linux is about a flexible an operating system as you can find. But it can be easy to forget just how flexible it is. We can get ourselves stuck in our computing habits and stick with the old and familiar. And sometimes, just trying something new can sometimes seem daunting and just not worth the effort.

One of the world's largest research charities, the Wellcome Trust, is to support efforts by scientists to make their work freely available for all. The Trust is to establish a free, online publication to compete with established academic journals. They say their new title could be a "game changer" forcing other publishing houses to increase free access.
