Comment: Gartner should have Roddenberry's know-how (Score 1) 275

If anyone wants to predict what technology we will be using, would have been using and have been using, then all you need to do is watch the original Captain Kirk series. All of the gadgets and tech used are more or less what we have adopted and are adopting. From the cell phone to the 3d laser printer. Listen to Gene Roddenberry, not Gartner

+ - OpenBSD (OpenSSH) will shut down if funding not found->

BillBrains (1686056) writes "In light of shrinking funding, we do need to look for a source to cover project expenses. If need be the OpenBSD Foundation can be involved in receiving donations to cover project electrical costs.

But the fact is right now, OpenBSD will shut down if we do not have the funding to keep the lights on.

If you or a company you know are able to assist us, it would be greatly appreciated, but right now we are looking at a significant funding shortfall for the upcoming year — Meaning the project won't be able to cover 20 thousand dollars in electrical expenses before being able to use money for other things. That sort of situation is not

An enterprise solution like Citrix is hardly a solution for a home user. We've been using NoMachine for the past six months and now they've released their Android app, my wife and I are well chuffed for sharing files and doing remote work (we are both architects)

Moving away from the Linux world was the only option for them since all the Linux world could do was get narked because they never opened up the code completely to the community. This gave rise to all the forked versions which in return could only cause further dismantled usage of a top quality product. It is the likes of the so-called Enterprise which have probably allowed them to survive and keep going. The best thing they ever did was to remove their NX Free Edition in to the Enterprise section as a pay-for product: the Workstation. Their new DESKTOP SHARING product is free for everyone, whether communist zealot or serious businessman.

The bad news is not that they're moving away from Linux. They can't be since it's the companies running Linux servers that pay their wage. They've probably woken up to the fact that Linux is not going anywhere that it promised to go. The fact they added support for Windows and Mac is a warning to all of those occupying the market so far. If I were Logmein or Teamviewer, I would be downloading their software to see what it is they are doing better.

BillBrains (1686056) writes "Getting design assistance with your own mini client or even server with the processing power you need, support for VP8 and H264 for encoding video formats seems to be impossible. Not so long ago, before all these mini devices for under 100 bucks started taking the HW markets by storm, I had had an idea of making my own 'RPi', and I had the means to fund it too, but all those that I approached just slammed the door in my face. Why is that? If you take it to China, you risk it being copied before you've even got it shipping. All the serious names you turn to take a look at your design, realize what you could do with it, and then say "Oh, sorry no can do". Who are they kidding, it's pretty obvious they are on somebody's books?"

Whether it sounds trollish or not, (I would say that it was intentional), the point is that so many projects give their hard work to the community who take, and then take and continue to take, and give nothing in return other than the malicious and evil comments (not all) that you can find on this page.

All the forks that the readers mention herein exist thanks to the developers behind NoMachine NX. Neatx would not exist without NoMachine, likewise all those other projects that continue to take the NX compression libraries and even complain that certain things don't work, or don't work well. If they don't work, or don't work well, why don't they just fix it themselves? What a shame it is that all these forks do exist now, only to disappear later. And they will because they don't have anyone holding their hand.

Instead of all just sitting there wondering why they are closing the source, and wondering what you can use in its place, just download and try it. They have obviously closed the source because they got fed up with "the community" taking a technology for free without giving a shit back. They have no doubt got some tricks up their sleeves, and who said no one uses it? It is clear you don't read much, you just sit there and drink your free beer. Who cares about forks, it's nomachine that's holding the knife by its handle.
