Official: IBM to gobble Red Hat for $34bn – yes, the enterprise Linux biz

Re: At least is isnt oracle or M$

desktop Linux is dead .. a long proven experiment that failed .

IanMoore33

Re: If IBM buys Redhat then what will happen to CentOS?

CentOS is still the open-source RH clone without the support ..

Re: just curious why you think Power is so amazing.

for one .. the RISC architecture offers more MIPS and cores than any CISC could ever dream of .

AOO is only interesting because it free

It is not 100% compatible with Word .. some basic functions simply don't work .. but it's free and beats the hell out of paying MS anything.

Violin Systems gnaws off X-IO Technologies' storage arm

ummm

Violin ran through $600m in cash since it's 2013 public offering and declared bankruptcy in 2016 with only $1.3m in cash .. barely enough for payroll for the remaining 50 out of 400 employees remaining in January 2017. I was one of the last to be laid off.

How does it manage to buy another piece of a company with 200 employees?

SCO vs. IBM case over who owns Linux comes back to life. Again

IanMoore33

having worked on AIX / UNIX kernels / and Linux

AIX started out as 32 bit SVR3 .. drastically modified to be 64 bit NUMA platform

UNIX/SVR4 was the merging of SVR3 and Berkeley UNIX that resulted in SMP platform now known as Solaris, SCO , UNIXWARE ,... and HP UNIX . All the big iron jumped on the band wagon : HP/Tandem/SUN/MIP in the mid 90's. I use to visit AT&T Bell labs in NJ to replace 3b2's with MIPS based servers running SVR4.

Linux is stolen 100% from SVR4 .. ok .. so Linus renamed some functions to hide the IP.

Anyone who has worked on the originals know Linus is a thief .

Power meltdown 'fries' SourceForge, knocks site's servers titsup

Re: Data Center?

owning your own stack and staff is still likely cheaper to a degree than cloud . The storage portion is the most expensive part of AWS .

just remember

being in the cloud simply means someone else's computer ....

Violin 7000 series used the FalconStor SDS layer .

Ubuntu 'weaponised' to cure NHS of its addiction to Microsoft Windows

Desktop Linux ?

Who runs desktops with Linux ... it's a MAC world now for professionals and Windows turd for the poorly educated . Linux has proven to be a poor choice for laptops and it hasn't gotten any better.

Ubuntu has always been a POS; Canonical support is almost non-exist .

Re: We live in disposal era

You need that new iphone ! You won't be the most popular guy in the cube farm without it ! You need a matching IWatch that beeps when your iphone ( that never leaves your hands ) gets a message . No woman ( in case you may be have never been lucky enough to have touched a real one ) will be interested in someone without all the latest iphones apps that track your every thought, emotion, location, eating habits , home entertaining viewing , and what times you jerk off ...

YOU NEED THAT $1000 phone ! and the $350 phone bill that goes with it ! What else do you need money for ?

We live in disposal era

Repair broken PC servers ? That is a thing of the past ; It's cheaper to replace a $3000 turd from FoxConn sweat shop than pay some blok $32k a year to baby sit gear.

Amazon squares up to Walmart over boycott calls: Talk sh!t, get hit

IanMoore33

It really has to do with $$$ - CASH !

Walmart essentially don't want their vendors to give AWS .. aka .. Amazon , any $$ funds - so they worded the request to appear it was security concern .

I don't give $$ to either of them - they are both cesspools in their own ways .

Re: Security Agency?

NSA told MS about it and they never released a patch

IanMoore33

Re: Just Patch?

admit it - virus and infections come from malware injected in porn and gaming sites , email trolls , and 3rd party tor based blobs .. you have been lucky so far ... but you are not 100% protected . I installed Panda AV ( free ) and use Google Chrome which does great black listing already on my wife's computer. Once these virus get injected into corporate networks they can seek out other machines to infect . You are likely a stand alone box at home.

Re: Let's mention Microsoft's Policy of hoarding patches unless you pay up.

Bullshitte . fails 50% of the time . There is a long manual way one has to fix it on MS turd site

Re: Let's mention Microsoft's Policy of hoarding patches unless you pay up.

Windows 7 has a long manual procedure released I had to do on my wife's machine .. it took an entire day

The aholes at MS have no idea how to release patches THAT WORK to cure update problems . It should all be automated

MS should hire the NSA hackers

Piece of shitte MS

Gvmt should have started charging MS $1000 fines decades ago for each outage for their bug infested shiite they have polluted the world with .

I can't even guess how much data loss and business losses in $billions are due to their dogshitte crap .
