Redhat will now support releases for 10 years….

serverwatch.com noted that Redhat has now extended the time it will support releases from five years to ten years.  This is great news for companies that can’t afford to keep updating internal software at a faster pace.  Though the support cycle also means that support versions will have to keep that in mind when releasing software.  This combined with advances in virtualization mean that we can keep running software for even longer with out updating it.  Wait is that a good thing?  Well it’s a mixed blessing but proves again that Linux has supporters that are listening to their customers unlike their counterparts that create the closed source OS’s.

Episode 55 – Joe can’t drive 55…

Is ClearOS a clear replacement for CentOS?

I heard an interview with the president of ClearOS on Floss Weekly.  A short article about it over on LinuxJournal.com reminded us that we needed to talk about it. After hearing the initial interview I decided to setp a VM.  The install was easy to do.  The Web Based management UI was simple, intuitive and easy to use.  Whether you are a Linux Geek or a Newbie it makes managing and configuring new and existing applications easy.  If your a small business looking to switch over to Linux we highly recommend putting this on a VM and testing it out.

Re: Cancelation of HP TouchPad Order 
Dear OfficeMax Customer: 
Recently you have been contacted and informed your HP TouchPad order was canceled due to HP discontinuing the item and OfficeMax not being able to source the item. 
It was brought to our attention that HP may be shipping additional inventory to its suppliers. Our Merchandising team has contacted HP and is pushing to acquire enough stock to cover the orders we had to cancel. HP has posted the following statement on their website – “Despite announcing an end to manufacturing webOS hardware, we have decided to produce one last run of TouchPads to meet unfulfilled demand. We don’t know exactly when these units will be available or how many we’ll get, and we can’t promise we’ll have enough for everyone.” 
We have saved all canceled orders, and if we are successful in attaining additional HP TouchPads, we will contact you to fulfill your order. 
As always, we value your business. Thank you for your patience and loyalty throughout this situation. 
While we deeply regret any inconvenience this has caused, we ask that if you have questions, please call customer service at 1-877-OfficeMax.

Red Software + Blue Hardware = Purple Private Clouds

ZDNet.com has a cool article about the alliance between Red Hat and IBM starting to bring something to the market. It appears that what they have been working on is a packaged appliance like Cloud solution.  With Red Hat KVM Based virtualization and IBM Hardware they plan to make devices and sets of servers to compete with the ones being created by Cisco, EMC and VMWare.  Competition is cool but can they unseat the VMWare team?  Only time will tell.
