Who Is Developing KVM Linux Virtualization?

,----[ Quote ]
| Mike Day, chief virtualization architect at 
| IBM, noted during the Red Hat-sponsored Open 
| Source Cloud Computing Forum this week that 
| the KVM development community has become 
| very active in 2009 -- encompassing a wide 
| array of organizations.
| He said that after examining the project's 
| mailing list to gauge the activity taking 
| place in KVM development, he found that 
| there were some 884 unique participants in 
| the mailing list, roughly equivalent to the 
| number of active KVM developers. Those 
| participants were spread across 382 unique 
| address domains from somewhere in the range 
| of 250 to 300 separate. According to Day, 
| organizations that participate in KVM range 
| from large corporations, to government and 
| educational organization, as well as 
| individual contributors.


Fedora 12 installation media updated

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fedora-related Fedora Unity project has 
| made respins of Fedora 12, which was 
| released last autumn, available to download 
| as ISO files for i386 and x86_64 systems. 
| The respins are updated versions of the 
| traditional CD and DVD installation media of 
| Fedora 12 which already contain many updates 
| that have since been released; once 
| installation via such a respin is complete, 
| users only need to install the package 
| updates released by the Fedora project in 
| the past few days.



yum upgrade to Fedora 12 (and mini-review)

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, it appears to be a decent upgrade.
| Most things appear the same and a few things
| have changed.  This is good â itâs how a
| mature desktop should be.  Upgrades here and
| there, but no more radical changes.


The State of Fedora: We're Not Just for Fanboys

,----[ Quote ]
| With over 20 million installations, Fedora is
| among the most world's popular Linux
| distributions. While that kind of success has
| been due to a rapid base of supporters, the
| distro originally launched by Red Hat as a
| community Linux project is having to bridge the
| divide between targeting a mass audience and
| keeping hardcore enthusiasts in the fold.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
