Nexenta combines OpenSolaris, GNU, and Ubuntu

What do you get when you combine OpenSolaris, the GNU utilities, and Ubuntu? Nexenta -- a GNU-based open source operating system built on top of the OpenSolaris kernel and runtime. I took the Alpha 5 release out for a spin to see how well it's progressing. It might sound like an odd combination, but after more than a year of development, it actually works well, and is shaping up to be a very interesting operating system.

Editorial: Is Medsphere an Open Source Company or Not?

  • GNU/Linux And Open Source Medical Software News; By Ignacio H. Valdes, MD, MS (Posted by Scott_Ruecker on Oct 13, 2006 5:42 AM EDT)
  • Groups: Community; Story Type: News Story
After years of publicly saying they are an Open Source company, and the 'leading provider of Open Source software for the healthcare industry',Medsphere Corp. has yet to release their core product OpenVista® as Open Source. It is entirely their right to use the Veterans Affairs VistA codebase, modify, rewrite and not release it to the VistA community. However, holding forth as loudly and as publicly as they have that they are an Open Source company while not releasing their core software, makes me question the sincerity of their claim of being the 'leading provider' of Open Source. Especially in the face of suing the founders of the company for many millions of dollars because they actually released company developed software as open source on Sourceforge.

OpenSSH with Public Key Cryptography Tutorial

  • Nuxified.org; By a_thing (Posted by Libervis on Oct 13, 2006 4:54 AM EDT)
  • Groups: GNU, Linux
This tutorial is intended for people with at least basic Unix knowledge, such as mounting file systems and copying files. OpenSSH, an OpenBSD project, is an incredibly secure implementation of the SSH protocol, a way of logging into a remote machine. For users of outdated protocols such as RSH, rlogin, and Telnet, it's an updated, secure replacement. For those who have never used anything like it, SSH can become a very valuable tool.

Penelope the Thunderbird

Actually, it was never quite clear why Qualcomm bought Eudora, the old market-leading email program, but it would have been quite understandable if it had been because it foresaw the growth in mobile email, and wanted to bundle something with BREW phones.

Novell will switch from ReiserFS to ext3

In September, Jeff Mahoney from the SUSE Labs sent out an email to the opensuse-factory mailing list analyzing several issues with the ReiserFS filesystem. In the message he proposed changing SUSE over to another filesystem.
