Microsoft’s Azure now supports Linux…Sort of..

Microsoft has announced that it wil now support Linux.  Well if you are running a few distros they will.  Those would be:

Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2

OpenSuse 12.01

CentOS 6.2

Ubuntu 12.04

If you didn’t notice there is one very large distorbution missing from that list.  Red Hat and Fedora are not there but CentOS is.  CentOS is a dirivitive work off of Red Hat.  So it’s not likely a driver issue.  It’s more likely that it’s a licensing and support contract thing.  We have another story about a contract they just signed so we know it’s also unlikely that they aren’t happy about working with each other.  Check out the podcast to hear us go into more detail about our thoughts on the whole situation.

Ubuntu wants to revolutionize the UI

It would seem that Ubuntu is in a race with Microsoft and Apple to make a massive change to the way we use desktop.  With the HUD and Unity they are trying to moving things in a new way and change the way we all work.  While I am still on the fence on Unity the HUD is something I hope Apple and Microsoft embrace and extend.  This is a nice article from the man himself, Mark Shuttleworth, about his plans for the future of User Interfaces.

Episode 68 – It takes a billion…

Microsoft bought Netscape from AOL….

Ok not really but they did buy all of the Netscape patents along with others in a $1 Billion purchase of 800 patents.  AOL really shouldn’t be hurt but this with their curent strategy of being a content company.  What we ant to know is what MS plans to do with them.  AOL wasn’t interested in suing the likes of Mozilla and Google for their Mail and Browser Tech.  MS on the other hand is well versed in doing these things and has already proven they will withthe Android Hardware makers.

Episode 65 – We want some Pi and Cotton Candy..

Running Time:
1) Introduction

Box.net giving away accounts not at the normal 5GB size but at 50GB of storage for life, theirs not yours, for new android app users until March 23, 2012.  Someone figured out how to use that space as a mount point/drive on your machine.  It’s a pretty cool way to get some cloud storage.

2) News

The Consumerization of IT
