WattOS R8 out now

WattOS, the lightweight energy saving Linux distro, has just released an eighth version with a switch to Debian from an Ubuntu base. We like wattOS here at Linux User.

Its optimisations for energy efficiency make it a great choice for laptops, generally energy-conscious users and older or slower hardware. Its been based on Ubuntu for a number of years but that’s changing with the latest release of the distro.

These are free, come with everything you need for basic computing, and will run great on older hardware. If you’re going to give this a whirl, check out Linux Mint.

Moving towards an open source cloud with OpenStack

Over the past years, I've played a leading role in helping to bring openness to the storage industry. At Nexenta, we inherited great technology from Sun Microsystems and went to market with an open core business model. This model, and a lot else, worked well and Nexenta has been called "the most disruptive storage company of the last 10 years" in part because of the impact we had on legacy, lock-in based proprietary vendors.

Android Candy: Waze

I have a love/hate relationship with Waze. The idea of peer collaboration regarding traffic, combined with the technology to accomplish it on an enormous scale is truly amazing.
