LXer Feature: 06-Oct-2006
On the word of an LXer reader, I downloaded OpenOffice.org 2.0.4 Release Candidate 3 to test it's load speed. I also tested copying data from Calc to Base, something that had caused repeated crashing under 2.0.3. Here's what happened.
It was only 15 years ago that Unix was first being commercialized, proprietary operating systems dominated the midrange of the server market, mainframes ruled the high end, and there was no such thing as an entry server, but rather a NetWare file system for file sharing and network printing. How the world has changed.
In August of this year, SGI announced that they were able to run a single system image of the Linux OS over 1024 processors on an Itanium-based Altix 4700 supercomputer. How was this feat accomplished? This week at the Gelato Itanium Conference and Expo (ICE) in Singapore, Neuner presented a session that described the Linux kernel modification that helped to make this possible. HPCwire caught up with him before the conference to ask him about the Linux improvements and where the future of single system image scalability is headed.
I've tried, I really have. For a couple of years now, I have been attempting to dump my destructive tendency of using MP3 as my audio format of choice and have instead, been working very hard to get onboard with OGG Vorbis 100 percent. However, this is very difficult when you own an iPod Nano and a Dell Pocket DJ.
Service-oriented architectures (SOAs) are the subject de jour with IT vendors, who have been using the term as if the concept has been totally understood by the buying audience and is well along the way to general implementation.
The ICT industry is expected to grow by 6% in 2006, mainly driven by Internet-related investments, Linux servers, digital storage, personal digital assistants and new portable consumer products. But any return to the heady days of 20% and 30% growth in many products and market segments in the 1990s are unlikely, according to the latest edition of the OECD’s Information Technology Outlook 2006.

Chris Brown has put together two useful books about Novell's "Community Distribution," SUSE Linux . (I'd have called it SUSE 10.1.) Unfortunately, O'Reilly decided to bind them together. Brown says his book is for the "enthusiastic pilgrim," so, once again, we've got 150 pages of newbie stuff: quick start, basic this and that, using Linux on your desktop, using Linux on your laptop. Brown does a nice job.
