Subject: Whose cloud is the open-sourciest... Who cares?

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

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, the thought police are back. For years, the open source community was torn apart by fractious debates over what "open" meant and who was open enough. As we've moved beyond name calling to focus on getting work done, the same old debate has shifted to cloud computing, with a new crop of pundits and evangelists wrangling over who is the cloudiest of them all.

Subject: Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Ubuntu 12.04 (Initiator And Target)

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

This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running Ubuntu 12.04. AoE stands for "ATA over Ethernet" and is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows AoE initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) AoE target using normal ethernet cabling. "Remote" in this case means "inside the same LAN" because AoE is not routable outside a LAN (this is a major difference compared to iSCSI). To the AoE initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.

Any gamer or fan of distributed computing would tell you that a powerful graphics card is key to a high performing computer. That same gamer would also tell you that a sign of a good graphics card is the ability to overclock it. After all, overclocking means greater performance and greater value.

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

Mark Shuttleworth has announced on his blog the latest charming alliteration in the Ubuntu naming stable, Raring Ringtail. And while we are saddened that they didn’t take the opportunity to capitalize on a more rustic name befitting of their typical design idioms — Rusty Rhinoceros comes to mind here –, we are tickled pink (brown) to know. But that’s not the real news from the blog post.

Subject: Should Linux Take a Lesson From Apple?

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

The Secure Boot saga may seem like it's been dragging on forever here in the Linux blogosphere, but the truth is that it's a mere babe in Redmond arms compared with the never-ending Apple v. Samsung drama. It seems safe to say that most FOSS fans are sick to death of hearing about both of them, but recently the always-insightful team over at TuxRadar posed yet another interesting question.

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

There's much to admire in Canonical’s Quantal Quetzal, which continues to refine and improve the Unity desktop, but you'd be forgiven if you missed the positives thanks to the late injection of a little Bezos since Ubuntu 12.04. As if the move to Unity hadn’t been contentious (and bumpy) enough, Canonical has dipped into controversy by adding the Amazon Search Lens to the Unity Dash. The Lens, enabled by default in Ubuntu 12.10, adds Amazon shopping results to your Unity searches.
