If Canonical is ever going to establish Ubuntu Touch as legitimate contender among mobile operating systems, it's a journey that won't truly begin until sometime next year. That's because the first Ubuntu Touch smartphone isn't likely to launch before 2015 even though Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth said last month that we should expect Ubuntu Touch devices in 2014.

I’m a 15 year old programmer. I started at nine and by now have written a lot of code. To me, programming is creating, and I've created many projects—from a pure Java 3D projection engine to a web spider. Today, I'm sharing my story with you for Opensource.com's Youth in Open Source Week.

Recent data from IBM proved once again that iOS users were much more active during the holiday shopping season than their Android counterparts. It's unclear why this is the case, but I wondered if this kind of activity also translated to business use. Here's what I found.

The Federal Communication Commission's net neutrality rules were partially struck down today by the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, which said the Commission did not properly justify its anti-discrimination and anti-blocking rules. Those rules in the Open Internet Order, adopted in 2010, forbid ISPs from blocking services or charging content providers for access to the network. Verizon challenged the entire order and got a big victory in today's ruling. While it could still be appealed to the Supreme Court, the order today would allow pay-for-prioritization deals that could let Verizon or other ISPs charge companies like Netflix for a faster path to consumers.

MPHJ Technology Investments quickly became one of the best-known "patent trolls" of all time by sending out thousands of letters to small businesses—16,465 of them, we now know—saying that if the business did not pay a licensing fee of $1,000 or more per worker, it would be sued for patent infringement. MPHJ claimed to have patents that cover any networked "scan-to-email" function.

Almost everyone I've spoken to (on both sides of the net neutrality debate) more or less expected the ruling that came down this morning in the DC circuit, in which the appeals court struck down the FCC's net neutrality rules because the the FCC had no mandate under the rules it used to issue that ruling. Basically, this is exactly what lots of us said at the start of this whole process. I've seen a bunch of reports overreacting to this today, from people saying that it's "the death of the internet." It's not. There are problems on both sides here. The telcos absolutely do want to abuse things to effectively double charge both sides. And that could clearly create significant issues with the basic end-to-end nature of the internet.

In previous posts, I've discussed how to use Gnuplot for time-based data and conditional plotting. This time, I'd like to introduce another class of potential core elements for your charts, and that's generic clip art. I'll explain step-by-step, in the simplest possible manner, how I plotted a histogram, and then I'll give you some directions on how to proceed from there.

In an article on cloud myths one big one was the notion that it's just for geeks. I would say it's just the opposite. In fact, the cloud has been the great equalizer giving ordinary users easy access to services that used to require help from IT.

In today's multi-tenant data centers, virtualization technology is being extended from traditional hypervisor-based server virtualization to network virtualization.In this environment, software-based virtual switches are commonly deployed on servers along with hypervisor, bridging traffic among different virtual machines (VMs). In this tutorial, I am going to demonstrate how to install and configure KVM and Open vSwitch (OVS) on Ubuntu or Debian.
