Linux: Genuinely Trustworthy Computing

Who controls your computer? If it's a Windows computer, not you. I swear I'll puke if I read one more cheery press release touting "Trustworthy Computing." Richard Stallman strips away the Newspeak and calls it "Treacherous Computing."...us old Linux geeks and other Free/Open Source Software users see the whole security issue as ridiculous, akin to devoting massive resources to developing bigger and better waders, instead of simply climbing out of the sewer. Call me cranky, but it sure seems stupid to continue to entrust one's data and business to a proven leaky, malware-friendly, anti-customer platform like Microsoft Windows.

As VoIP moves into the mainstream, certain trends are strengthening, such as the availability of open-source software; while others are changing, such as how international service providers are deploying VoIP.

The Internet Telephony Conference and Expo in Ft. Lauderdale this week is spotlighting these trends for more than 8,000 attendees at the Broward County Convention Center.

Open-source guru Mark Spencer, president of Digium Inc., says the company is not planning a major follow-on to the popular Asterisk open-source platform, but is still adding new features to the platform. “I think Asterisk as a platform has a lot of life in it,” he says. However, Asterisk users can look forward to new features such as integrating video. Digium has done a technology demo with Grandstream Networks Inc. showing video voice mail, and is working on tighter integration with video conferencing. The company also plans to boost the performance of its server to handle more calls

File System Design part 1: XFS

Generally, file systems are not considered "sexy." When a young programmer wants to do something really cool, his or her first thought is generally not "Dude, two words...File System." However, I am what is politely termed "different." I find file systems very interesting and they have seldom been more so than they are right now. Hans Reiser is working on getting Reiser4 integrated into the Linux kernel, the BSD's are working on getting a journaled file system together, and Sun Microsystems just recently released a beta of ZFS into OpenSolaris. This is an excellent time to be me.
