Extreme Engineering Solutions announced two rugged Linux-ready modules based on Intel E3800 SoCs, including one built in the tiny COM Express Mini format. Extreme Engineering Solutions (“X-ES”) is rolling out two nearly identical computer-on-module products: the “XPedite8150? conforms to the tiniest (84 x 55mm) COM Express Mini form-factor, while the “XPedite8152? adopts a somewhat larger 109 x 55mm “COM Express Extended Mini” format. Both COM models are offered with a choice of Atom system-on-chips, including the E3845, E3827, E3826, E3825, or E3815. However, the E3845 is standard, says X-ES.
VMware has outlined a new way to do desktop virtualisation (VDI) that aims to greatly reduce the amount of storage required to deliver desktops from the data centre. Many current VDI arrangements require each virtual desktop to be stored as a discrete virtual disk. By the time organisations get to hundreds or thousands of such disks, that adds up to a hefty storage requirement and all sorts of network fun around 9:00 AM when everyone arrives at work and logs on. The cost and complexity of all that kit makes VDI too pricey for many and too hard for others.
I started writing for Linux Journal as a contributing editor in 1996 (here's one piece), and went full-time 1998, not long before I began co-writing The Cluetrain Manifesto with Chris Locke, David Weinberger and Rick Levine. The Cluetrain website went up in March 1999, and we finished writing the book at the end of August 1999. The book was published in January, 2000, and a tenth anniversary edition arrived in 2009. But the last words of the original were written fifteen years ago this month.

Vibrations and wave motions describe many different physical systems. In fact, most systems that dissipate energy do so through waves of one form or another. In this article, I take a look at gvb (Good ViBrations, a Linux application you can use to visualize and model wave motion and vibrations.

Community is a big part of the open source way. An open source project is nothing without a vibrant community of users and contributors. And participant satisfaction is a major factor in having a vibrant community. So, what are the factors that contribute to participant satisfaction with open source projects?

The Stay Puft effort provides additional installation and deployment components, leveraging the Foreman project.
I don’t mean system stability, that is a given with Linux, but developer stability. Can I depend on this distro to be around in two years…in five years? How is the project funded? Does this innovative project have a large development community that can step in should the lead developer become ill or takes a lengthy sabbatical?
