+ - Linus Torvalds Want to Dominate the Desktop->

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Linux is everywhere or is it? At the LinuxCon conference in Chicago today Linus Torvalds was asked where Linux should go next. Torvalds didn't hesitate with his reply.

"I still want the desktop," Torvalds said as the audience erupted into boisterous applause.

Torvalds doesn't see the desktop as being a kernel problem at this point either, but rather one about infrastructure. While not ready to declare a 'Year of the Linux Desktop' he does expect that to happen — one day."

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Barely a week after Robyn Bergeron announced her intention to step down, Red Hat today announced that Matthew Miller is now the new Fedora Project Leader. Miller is the guy that came up with the whole Fedora.next proposal which is now reshaping Red Hat's community Linux project. Miller has a clear view of how his leadership will work in the cat-herding world of open source.

As the FPL, you've got the responsibility, but no actual authority to tell anyone to do things," Miller said. "So you have to find people that have an interest and are aligned with the direction you want to go."

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Red Hat today announced an all cash deal worth $175 million to acquire Inktank, the lead commercial sponsor behind the Ceph open-source distributed filesystem. As part of the deal, Inktank is now set to open-source its proprietary Calamari monitoring system for Ceph. The deal could prove to be a real boon for Inktank's investors which include Dreamhost and Red Hat's Linux rival, Mark Shuttleworth. The fate of Gluster however is not a concern as Red Hat sees Ceph and Gluster as being complementary storage filesystem technologies."

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "No security issue in recent memory has received the same attention as the Heartbleed flaw. What many people don't seem to realize amidst the media frenzy is that both the name 'Heartbleed' and the bleeding heart logo were created by a security research firm as a way to brand the flaw. The Chief Marketing Officer of Codenomicon (the firm that came up with the name Heartbleed and owns the website Heartbleed.com) said:
"Our intent was never to market, [but] rather to inform, educate and advise," Hope Frank said. "This is why we decided to post our internal Heartbleed content and created the Website. The domain happened to be available. ""

darthcamaro (735685) writes "Red Hat's open source oVirt project hit a major milestone this week with the release of version 3.4. It's got improved storage handling so users can mix and match different resource types, though the big new feature is one that seems painfully obvious. For the first time oVirt users can have the oVirt Manager and oVirt VMs on the same physical machine.

"So, typically, customers deployed the oVirt engine on a physical machine or on a virtual machine that wasn't managed or monitored," Scott Herold, principal product manager for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization said. "The oVirt 3.4 release adds the ability for oVirt to self-host its engine, including monitoring and recovery of the virtual machine." -
