[News] Ubuntu GNU/Linux Does for Free What Apple and Microsoft Only Dream of

Ubuntu Makes Cloud Strategy a Big Joke

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, thanks to the recession, the contrast between Ubuntu and Apple 
| couldn't be starker. For Linux, the future looks peachy. For Apple, it's 
| beginning to go pear shaped. If you'll pardon the pun.  


Karmic Koalas Love Eucalyptus

,----[ Quote ]
| Our first steps in Karmic Koala will be at the infrastructure layer. We're 
| adopting the emerging standard of Amazon EC2 and providing our users with 
| AMI's and tools to run on Amazon EC2. We're also providing users with an open 
| source means of implementing their own in-house EC2-like cloud (Eucalyptus). 
| This is not the end but the beginning of a journey, and we will be looking to 
| build ecosystems at all the layers of the computing stack based upon 
| portability and choice.      


SFLC tech director wants to liberate the cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| Free Software Foundation founder Richard Stallman made headlines last year 
| when he argued that cloud computing is "worse than stupidity" and called for 
| users to abandon popular Web applications such as Facebook and GMail. We 
| disagreed with Stallman and pointed out that cloud computing is here to stay 
| and that numerous emerging community-driven initiatives have the potential to 
| bring the values of software freedom to the cloud.     
| This issue was the primary topic of a presentation made by Software Freedom 
| Law Center (SFLC) technical director and community liaison Bradley Kuhn at 
| the Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE). Kuhn has worked closely with 
| Stallman over the years and previously served as the executive director of 
| the Free Software Foundation before participating in the founding of the 
| SFLC. He is best known for his role in authoring GNU's Affero General Public 
| License (AGPL).      



Feeling the heat at Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| If I ask you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?  
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have 
| to go with that. 

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
