Ceph: A Linux petabyte-scale distributed file system

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux continues to invade the scalable 
| computing space and, in particular, the 
| scalable storage space. A recent addition 
| to Linux's impressive selection of file 
| systems is Ceph, a distributed file system 
| that incorporates replication and fault 
| tolerance while maintaining POSIX 
| compatibility. Explore the architecture of 
| Ceph and learn how it provides fault 
| tolerance and simplifies the management of 
| massive amounts of data.


AMD Radeon HD 4290 On Linux


Finally a graphics card for Linux that works flawlessly with compiz and is lightning fast

,----[ Quote ]
| So far I have only tested the nVidia 
| proprietary drivers version 195.36.24 and 
| the performance is impressive when turning 
| on all compiz effects. If you have the card 
| or you are thinking about getting it and 
| happen to try the open source drivers 
| before I do, please, let me know of your 
| findings!



Comparing windows and Linux hardware management.

,----[ Quote ]
| What this means is that with windows being manufacturer specific every
| different piece of hardware needs to have a new driver installed. With Linux
| being chipset specific only different chipsets need to use different drivers.
| This is why Linux advocates state that Linux supports more hardware out of
| the box than what windows does. It also makes for a more stable and easy to
| maintain system.
