I think Richard Stallman killed him after he refused to rename the distribution to "Debian GNU/GNU/GNU/Linux."

RMS would probably insist on the GNU first in line.  That aside, I wonder if I am raising kids that would have the same issues.  Off to another room for a good discussion I think.

Maybe systemd did him in.

Well if he got attacked by cops then I'm starting an "Open Source Developer Lives Matter" movement. (But really it's just a trick to get George Soros to give me money so I can buy a new computer.)

Hey hey! Ho ho! systemd has got to go!

I totally agree.  I still find myself running /etc/init.d/<somecommand> :)

Are there any distros that are still holding back from systemd other than Slackware?

At this point there's no *practical* way to get around systemd without taking yourself way out of mainstream Linux support. Might as well just get used to it.

getting used to the system not booting because of no ethernet cable connected? well...

M$ SQL Server running on Linux.

It'll require the installation of .Net 4.6.3 and the ability to run .dll files.

From what I've been reading, this is an effort on Microsoft's part to seize an opportunity to whack Oracle.

Anyone who's delved into Oracle licensing knows what I mean.  If you want to run Oracle in a virtual machine, they charge you for every CPU core in your entire virtualization cluster, regardless of how many vCPU you've actually assigned to the virtual machine running Oracle.  And it seems that they have no intention to change that.

 

So it seems Microsoft see an opportunity to sell databases to customers who want a commercially-supported database on Linux in either a private cluster or in a cloud.  Hey, it could work ... after all Microsoft SQL Server started life as a port of Sybase, which already ran on Unix.   I've heard that Postgres is a lot closer to Oracle than MariaDB is, but it still isn't Oracle.  And even in the 21st century, there are still a lot of neanderthals who won't accept any software that isn't supported by a megavendor.

Now if they port Exchange, I will burn down the whole world.

well, oracle found it a good idea to have the cheapo mysql offering in house a while back to hunt down sql server that had been itching on their lower end customer sides.

Now that denying the existance of linux isn't number one priority for all microsoft employees anymore (azure has ~30% linux vms) it seems they finaly take decisions that are "in the best interest of their customers" - we will see how that works out.

M$ SQL Server running on Linux.

...and now the bash shell on Windows. The world is upside down.

Eh, Windows has had that for a while through cygwin.

But, if you mean compiled natively, yeah, that'd be new.

Supposedly this thing can run Linux binaries. We'll see.

For making Windows tolerable for people accustomed to real operating systems, there is nothing finer than MobaXterm. It is a full Cygwin environment without the obtusivity usually associated with Cygwin. You click a button and everything "just works." Cygwin isn't even its primary function -- MobaXterm is bascially a "universal terminal program" that has SSH, telnet, VNC, X Window system, RDP, FTP/SFTP, and a serial console all built in. Tabbed windows. And you can open tabs that are local command prompts, either a unix shell (via the included Cygwin), cmd.exe, or powershell (ugh).

It's effortless. If you open a program that needs X, either locally or over an SSH session, the X server starts up and does its thing, with its windows integrated into your desktop along with the native windows.

I can't say enough good things about MobaXterm. If you are a native penguin forced to work in a Windows environment, this is the program that makes it tolerable.

Hm. I should give that a look-see, and find out to what degree that's hackable (as in, black-hat). It might be funny to see the look on certain students' faces when you do something that doesn't quite look right.
