True, except for some of the Apollo guys.
They are using their own Illumos-derived distribution, SmartOS, which combines greatest features inherited from Solaris: ZFS, Zones, Dtrace, crossbow...
It run SmartOS containers and Linux containers (via ABI translation), alongside VMs (using their port of KVM), everything being encapsulated into Solaris Zones..
They claim to offer better performance by removing some virtualization layer (and because of the supposed superior performance of their SmartOS hypervisor), and better security because they use solaris Zones, crossbow network virtualization..
You can even use use Dtrace inside Linux Containers..
They implemented Docker API at the datacenter level (via their SmartDatacenter software they opensourced in 2014), the data center is seen as a single, elastic Docker host. Everything is opensource
A preview is available, on-premises or as an hosted service.
Are SmartOS and the solutions built on top of it hidden gems, wrongfully ignored because not being Linux ? A better platform to run Linux than Linux ?
Is this a breakthrough Docker-Wise ? Or an attempt of a niche-player to grab some attention ?
What are the comparable offers running on Linux ?
That episode guaranteed that no tin horn dictator will EVER give up their WMD program.
That seems logical, but Assad did just that:
doesn't it seem odd that the 2 parties in the US are now so similar, they differ only on highly emotional polarizing topics?
It's not a bug. It's a feature.
The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies... is a foolish idea. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.

I wonder if Schilling understands the "Streisand effect." The story probably increased the number of internet pervs checking out his daughter by orders of magnitude. Though internet pervs are mostly harmless, handling it quietly, with the schools and employers, might have been the most prudent course.
How many more stalkers know what she looks like and where she will be in the fall (a small school -- she'll be easy to find)?
Sandy Berger told her so.
A flexible endoscope is cleaned in a machine more like a kitchen dishwasher than an autoclave. The scope has internal channels for shooting air and water out of a nozzle on the tip. It has a large channel to pass instruments into the patient (biopsy forceps, cauterizers, even other more narrow endoscopes). An ERCP scope has an additional channel that carries a stiff wire that is used to deflect instruments coming out the end. This channel and wire is a very tight fit, so it is more difficult to clean.
Attachments to the channel ports should circulate the sterilizing fluids through all the channels. It's not difficult to imagine a clog preventing the fluid from circulating. Testing for leaks and clogs is part of the cleaning procedure, but in practice, of course, errors happen often:

So it's grazing irony, not center-of-mass double-tap irony.
Putting in my rhetorical ammo box for future use. Thanks!
Change that to "One weird trick" and you've got click-bait gold.
I'm surprised no one has blamed Snowden for the rise of ISIS and their ability to now avoid identification on-line...
The ADE 651 is a fake bomb detector produced by ATSC (UK), which claimed that the device could effectively and accurately, from long range, detect the presence and location of various types of explosives, drugs, ivory, and other substances. The device has been sold to 20 countries in the Middle East and Far East, including Iraq and Afghanistan, for as much as $60,000 per unit. The Iraqi government is said to have spent £52 million ($85 million) on the devices.
