Red Hat projects to seed cloudy IT

,----[ Quote ]
| Let's get one thing straight. We don't like 
| the term cloud computing any more than you do
| Of course, Richard Stallman doesn't like when 
| we call it Linux rather than GNU/Linux. He's 
| gotta live with Linux. And, well, we've gotta 
| live with cloud computing. It's not going 
| away.
| Commercial Linux and middleware distributor 
| Red Hat is, like other platform providers, 
| trying to get money from IT departments that 
| buy software. But Red Hat can't say that. For 
| one, the company can't sell software because 
| that violates open source licensing, and two, 
| it's too boring to just come out and say that.


Red Hat Ramps Up Open Source Cloud Projects



The people's cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| John Suffolk's (the Cabinet Office CIO) generously replied to my questions
| posed in last week's blog. G-Cloud is 'go' and it will be a Private Cloud,
| based on Open Standards and will use a mix of proprietary and (free?) open
| source software. All I reckon is left it to see whether it's stitched
| together by Microsoft's technology or Red Hat's.
| [...]
| Our great Free, Open Source guru Richard Stallman dislikes the Cloud concept.
| He sees it as a way to hand over your freedom to proprietarists and to get
| locked into someone else's computing paradigm. Many including this author
| agree with him. Below though is a manifesto for a 'good' cloud that would
| benefit the businesses and citizens of the UK without loss of rights and
| freedoms.
