  • The Linux Migration: Other Users’ Stories, Part 4
    This post is part of a series of posts sharing other users’ stories about their migration to Linux as their primary desktop OS. As I mentioned in part 1 of the series, there seemed to be quite a bit of pent-up interest in using Linux as your primary desktop OS. I thought it might be helpful to readers to hear not just about my migration, but also about others’ migrations. You may also find it interesting/helpful to read part 2 and part 3 of this series for more migration stories.

  • The Linux Migration: Corporate Collaboration, Part 1
    One major aspect of my migration to Linux as my primary desktop OS is how well it integrates with corporate communication and collaboration systems. Based on the feedback I’ve gotten from others on Twitter, this is a major concern for a lot of folks out there. In fact, a number of folks have indicated that this is the only thing keeping them from migrating to Linux. There are a number of different aspects to “corporate communication and collaboration,” so I’m breaking this down into multiple posts (each post will discuss one particular aspect). In this post, I’ll discuss integration with corporate e-mail.

    Over the last few weeks, I’ve been sharing various users’ stories about their own personal migration to Linux. If you’ve not read them already, I encourage you to check out part 1 and part 2 of this multi-part series to get a feel for why folks are deciding to switch to Linux, the challenges they faced, and the benefits they’ve seen (so far). Obviously, Linux isn’t the right fit for everyone, but at least by sharing these stories you’ll get a better feel whether it’s a right fit for you.

    Long-time readers of my site know that I’m a fan of Markdown, and I use it extensively. (This blog, in fact, is written entirely in Markdown and converted to HTML using Jekyll on GitHub Pages.)

Here are the details on how I’m using Markdown for creating presentations on Linux.

    Microsoft's Edge browser was supposed to alleviate a lot of the security concerns, with even more advanced sandboxing and process isolation than even Chrome. But in this years Pwn2Own competition, the Qihoo 360 security team found a pretty nasty vulnerability. Using a heap overflow bug, a JavaScript engine exploit, and a VMware flaw, they were able to not just execute code on the virtualized guest OS, but were actually able to access the host machine.

    If file systems are cool, then distributed file systems are Miles Davis. They're also incredibly hard. A lot of "distributed" file systems only fit the term in the broadest sense. Many rely on a centralized model, which can potentially be fine, but really limits how you can scale. Others offer true distribution but run into performance trouble. Elastifile's solution is the Elastifile Cloud File System. This isn't just simple distribution, they are offering a application-level distributed file system, with the goal of offering the flexibility of the public cloud, with all the enterprise data services expected in a hybrid cloud.You might also be interested in...ZFS Cheat SheetAvere Systems – is it a cache, is it a tier, does it…Testing out snapshots in Apple’s next-generation APFS fileFaster Docker initialization through Slacker snapshots…StorPool: Truly Distributed StorageThe post Elastifile: How Bizur appeared first on Gestalt IT.
