Subject: Desktop Environments RAM use

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

As a result of a recent discussion on IRC, I decided to take a number of DE (Desktop Environments) for a test drive and see how much ram they used.

Subject: Did Microsoft Just Give Up on Windows 8 for Businesses?

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

Despite my recent attempt to categorize what’s coming in Windows 8 for businesses -- and, seriously, it’s not a bad list -- it’s become increasingly clear to me that Microsoft doesn’t actually expect businesses to upgrade to this new system in any meaningful way.

Subject: RingCentral Didn't Ring My Chimes

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

I've been looking for an alternative to Google's Google Voice product that provides one number for all my phones -- mobiles and landline -- and includes online voicemail and discounted calling. Google Voice is a fine product, and I've had exemplary use out of it, but it has a couple of failings related to a lack of international functionality.

Subject: Piwik 1.8 released

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

It is an alternative to Google Analytics and from my experience, better in many respects. The latest version, released just today June 1 2012, is Piwik 1.8, and it comes with its share of new and improved features and bugfixes.This release is rated critical, so if you are running Piwik 1.7.1, the previous stable version, immediate upgrade is highly recommended.

Subject: June 2012 Issue of Linux Journal: Cool Projects

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

Three days ago here in northern Michigan, we had a heavy frost overnight. Those gardeners who ambitiously planted their plants early had to cover them with tarps or tents to make sure they didn't die in the frigid night. Yesterday, the temperature was 96°F. Michigan weather is weird. This month is our Cool Projects issue, so even if the temperature continues to push 100°, I'll rely on the June issue of Linux Journal to keep things cool.

Subject: Oracle verdict double plus good for Linux movement

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

The recent verdict against Oracle in its patent case against Google over Java use in Android is good news for the Linux community – and in more ways than one, according to Keith Bergelt, CEO of the Open Invention Network (OIN). The OIN was set up in 2005 to build a defensive patent-portfolio pot that could be shared royalty-free by participants, and which could be used to ward off patent trolls and aggressive litigation against Linux. Companies such as Red Hat, Google, and IBM have put money into the venture as a way of safeguarding themselves and promoting open source code.

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

Installing updates while the session is running can cause many unpleasant situations for the users and their system. The risks are many, including the updating of libraries while they are running, updating while some file resources have not been locked, and sometimes in core OS updates we may even see a complete system corruption.

Subject: Going Open Source, Almost There!

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

One week ago today, I said that I wanted to Open Source (under the GPL) all of my software. And, that if I hit $4,000 in contributions by midnight on Monday, the 4th (today), it would happen. As of the last tally (earlier today), we had broken $3,000. At the current rate, we’ll likely hit around $3,500 by midnight. So I’m extending the goal line out by a few days. Let’s, say, Friday. At sundown. In Seattle, WA [aka 9:05 PM Pacific Time]. Another, even more, arbitrary deadline. But that gives plenty of time to meet the goal.

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

A new AIIM survey found that companies clearly recognize the value of big data analytics, but struggle when it comes to choosing tools -- whether open source or not -- to get at the answers they need. It's an area IT pros can clearly exploit to help their companies in this increasingly important area.

Subject: Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

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

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Ubuntu 12.04. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.
