I'm thinking along this line, I've got a Nexenta box, but planning on migrating to Solaris 11 / OpenIndiana and running crashplan on it.

My issue is how to approach the ZFS block devices exposed as LUNs on FC. Solaris can't peek inside these (they're formatted as either VMFS-5 or NTFS), so crashplan can't do file-based backup on them. Short of getting a subscription for every client and the NAS as well, I can't see a better solution :(

" don't get to own the definition of 'software freedom'"

Yes, they do, since it was RMS who has coined this term.

Richard Stallman invented neither freedom nor software. Both are widely used generic Engliah words. You might like to think he owns the concept of 'freedoms as they pertain to software', but wishing it doesn't maker it so.

And now, in the spirit of this, I'm going to redefine 'conflake cake' to mean 'Richard Stallman'.


Submission + - Steve Jobs vowed to 'destroy' Android (

growse writes: "The Associated Press has obtained excerpts from Walter Isaacson's authorised biography of Steve Jobs in which Jobs threatened to "destroy Android, because it's a stolen product.". Jobs went on to say "I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong.". Do Apple hope to destroy Android by persuing Samsung (and others) in court?"

I've got a bad feeling about this.
