A sample of 1
I've actually played with KVM, Vmware and Virtualbox before I built my last system, to see how each worked.
The command line junky in me loved KVM and could live with Virtualbox. I hated vmware on that account, at least on the products I could try then. But in the end, the one thing that impressed me the most about KVM was the number on my UPS that indicated energy usage in Watts.
KVM was easilly the most awesome one on that account. On the same machine, at idle, the machine would consume a consistant 20 watts less energy then with either of the other 2, making it drain 115W instead of 135W with the other 2.
Doing a performance benchmark in the VMs afterward showed the footprint of the virtualisation layer was also very different. KVM would cause around 5% overhead and was extremely consistent, compared to between 8% and 15% with the other 2, with a lot of fluctuation, not always for obvious reasons, or any I could find really.
A sample of 1, so YMMV
Re: Of course the baggage theft can continue as usual.
I'm more inclined to think "not many" would be an optimistic figure. The actual number probably starts with a Z.

Eh hoser, beer typing will get you kicked off the BBQ team!
There, go learn some history.
You'd think so, until you stop a second to think about it. The contract user can't leave easilly, or without a stupid high penalty, where the pre-pay service can just not get a card next month.
You mean how all the BIG car compagnies still haven't payed it back? Think your money was better invested there?
Re: Well (@fmaxwell)
Please go back to the natural history museum to argue against evolution. You will be less of a nuisance there. The fact that humanity, as a whole, is emitting something like 10x the amount of CO2 that every single natural process on the planet combined does as consequences. Hiding your head under the sand won't change that. Let those of us who would like our specie to survive the next few hundred years handle this and go back to praying to the big man in the sky for salvation.
I must admit, seeing microsoft complaining about secret API that aren't documents and not made available to competitors as such a sweet smell of karma it's hard to resist. I'm sure the people who worked at netscape or Corelin the 90s are having a fit of laughter right now.
Re: They have the authority
I suggest you look up what Benjamin Franklin had to say on the subject. It's rather interesting.
Re: All well and good.
"and I would hope that this is what most companies, running ERP either on-prem or cloud - would have in place regardless."
And yet so many do not ...
You, sir, now have a dept of 1 keyboard toward me.
We definitely need an icon for delightful reference.
As was pointed out earlier, any credibility the Ambassador add vanished the instant he said anything about the Lannisters. After all, claiming moral high ground in this way means condoning stealing of power (the crown), murder, rape, child abuse ( poor Sansa ) and a host of other wrongs.
O wait, he works for the entertainment industry. That's normal then I guess.

Any time the victim ends up paying to fight the injustice, we all loose.
Re: 'Obvious' is an interesting term
It's all about how you define obvious ...
Soooo, let me get this strait. It only works on 32bit windows 7 installs. Wow ... that's like 1% of machines or something? Probably less actually. I'd say it's useless, but there will be like 10 people in the world who will both have a use for it and actually get to know about it, so not 100% useless ...
Doesn't work all that well here. I don't own an AC. Most of my power bill is to stay warm, not cold. Black roof ftw!!!
Re: "...thousands of tiny antennas..."
I suggest having a look at any modern cellphone for examples for very small, yet very very efficient antennas. The wonders of fractal antennas are all around you my friend.
Now if they could just apply that same kind of anti-bullshit logic to computer laws ... http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/03/28/doj_cfaa_update/
" Instead, these types of laws are designed to give prosecutors a strong negotiation position with which to threaten suspects and avoid all the expense and hassle of actually holding trials."
So let me get this strait. It's too much trouble to find out if HE ACTUALLY DID IT, so let's just make him so scare shitless his life is over, regardless of actual guild, that he admits to having done it. Last time I checked, that's called torture.
The more I read on this, the more I realise how important it is to keep these kinds of compagnie from "spilling over".
The SMS part is what bugs me. Sooo, you plan to charge people to whom you send the adds? We had carriers try that here in Canada. They didn't like how it was handled. It basically went like this "Ok, you don't want it opt-in? Fine, but any custumor who calls to have it re-impurse must have it payed back. Oh and they are allowed to call either in bulk, say for all the spam in the month, or for every message. They get to pick".
They soon realised the call center costs were more then the spamvertising revenues.

Probably on the same year all the supreme court judges go into retirement at the same time.

Over the pond in the cold north
Here in Canada, this was a huge problem a while back., as there wasn't even a limit to the term of the contract and it got abused badly. Here is how it was fixed.
1: Fixed term contracts are now more or less a thing of the past. The operator is flat out no longer allowed to lock you in.
2: IF they finance the phone for you, they have to be upfront about how much it the phone costs and how much of it is payed each month on your bill, as well as letting you know what the balance on said phone is. They are not allowed to charge interests on this I believe. (My provider doesn't anyway)
3: If you decide to walk out, you have to pay off the rest of your phone and they have to give you a way to unlock it so you can use it on another carrier.
Paris, cause she as no fixed contract.
Re: Bit confused...
Because Apple CHECKS all software that goes into the store, remember? To keep the porn out among other things? That makes it Apple's problem.
Re: Is there even a significant problem?
Didn't you just describe the entire political process?
What do you mean?
"I have to be responsible for the consequences of the work I did? What am I, a salary worker???"
What makes me worried is this. According to the FAA, all I have to do to bring down a plain is leave a laptop in the bagage compartment that will then turn on automatically and start broadcasting out? Who needs missiles when you can bring down a plane with a 300$ netbook!
What struck me is this. How can they tell what hum is what?
Let's have a look at my own home computer. It's connected to a cheap UPS, is connected to the television and the sound system. Now imagine all those slightly out of phase 60 Hz frequencies all fudging together and trying to figure out what is what? How about taking into consideration the slight differences in frequency that might arrise in the CPU as I record ? Or how about a cheap recorder that doesn't work exactly 100% correctly as far as recording actual frequencies. Not enough to be distinguishable by human ears, but enough that they might not even keep it accuratly compared to themselves. Think cheap clock that isn't 100% stable in a digital recorder.
That's more like trying to tell who died and when by looking at the blood patterns in sea waves if you ask me. Or maybe they just believe the bullshit the guy with the fat commission told them.
You mean the stars and the moon aren't just images printed on the giant glass dome around the earth??? I'm all confused now ...
Soooo this is pretty much another idiot with an overly broad/non-original patent trying to sue the world plus dog?
I really hope one of those days, those people get what they deserve ...
Not sure what's worst
That the admin panel was real and not properly secured or that a mock-up somehow made it's way into production. Both show an equally bad capability of handling a live, open to the public, system.
"most current Oracle Linux users are customers who had existing Oracle support contracts and who migrated their Linux support to Oracle mainly out of convenience."
I think this is the most un-informet statement ever. No, they didn't move it "for convinience". The BEANCOUNTERS moved it for convinience. ANYONE who as to deal with the actual support will have found it the worst decision ever. Trying to get useful support from Oracle is like trying to get a strait, honest and clear reply from a politician, so "convinience" as nothing to do with it, from the IT perspective anyway.
If they bitch about the 12 months contract needing to be honored, agree with them and explain that is why the contract is no longer valid, THEY did not honor it. As such, then go to ask for severance payment from THEM.
Not to nit-pick but ..
1920*1080 resolution and it STILL comes up right outside of the screen. Maybe they just changed how they do it so it's less obvious?
Re: Still no Zombies?
And you claim there are no zombies?
Come on, just LOOK at all the world's politicians!!!
Re: So, what happens when you surf to a website for some software.....?
You mean those nice sites that ask you to download and install malware? You making the argument for or against RT here? I can't decide.
Quite right to say they dumped it on Apache. It was rather hard for them to figure out what to do with it and having tried to turn it into a free money machine and failed, they found someone to throw it at. No one, ever, wants to have Oracle making decisions on a project they make, if only because that's like letting a blind idiot help you cross the street.
Libreoffice is the rightfull sucessor to OpenOffice.org
The new openoffice is just another Oracle poisoned product.
I'd just go with an intent of the law defence.
"Your honor, the lawmakers obviously made this law to prevent people from getting swindled out of money by diploma mills that offer worthless accreditation.
We offer courses built by extremely reputable Universities from around the world, our courses are free and the only thing you get out of it is knowledge, no diploma or accreditation. Where did we go against the law exactly?"
"All you have to do nowadays is mention Apple/Samsung/Microsoft and the idiots are jumping out of the woodwork to spew their bile."
That's not true. Even when Apple, Samsung or Microsoft aren't even part of the article, someone will find a way to insert them (especially Apple) in the comments.
I don't know about China, but here ...
the problem isn't the law prohibiting people from talking/texting while driving. It's that it's not enforced. Just driving to the supermarket I will be lucky if I don't cross 2 or 3 drivers talking on the cell, even when it's perfectly illegal. See a cop along the way? They are more likely to bust you for a tal light then cellphone.
As for texting ... words just fail me, so I'll settle for a nuclear explosion.
Makes you wonder if the efforts of Steam to bring games out of Windows and onto a more open platform won't kill the last thing that keps it on a lot of home PCs, gaming ...
I don't believe for a second that the lawers won't find some way to make the appeal happen, but wouldn't that be funny?
"But mister judge, we won't get payed if you say we can't appeal"
"And this is my problem how?"
Minimum IT knowledge for El'Reg?
"The NAS could then either be accessed online via a password-protected HTML IP address"
What's an HTML IP address exactly? And here I was sure that elreg had writers that at least had a basic grasp of IT.
Re: Maps a deal breaker?
Because it's the only the apple fanboys are able to find the stores.
"Oracle clearly no longer gives a damn about Java or its user base..."
Oracle as never given a damn about Java, except to use it to sue people. As for it's user base, considering how "wonderful" PAYING support is from them, what do you expect for a free product?
Any compagny that as reps that ask "why should I help you with your problem?" when you call the million dollars a year support line shouldn't be expected to give a shit.
