Red Hat Releases RHEL 6 Public Beta 1

dustwun Re:Showing its age (148 comments)

Why do you think it doesn't have enterprise in the name? It's the Community ENTerprise OS.
Like RHEL, it's often shortened.

AT&T Sues Verizon Over "Map For That" Ads

dustwun If anything, it's AT&T's ads that are misleadi (249 comments)

Honestly, all the "Nation's Fastest 3G Network" might be true in theory, but in practice it only holds true in limited areas around the country, and even then it's a crap shoot.

Apple Kills Google Voice Apps On the iPhone

dustwun Re:Coming to Cydia (541 comments)

Google doesn't even have to do this themselves. They could simply drop the code into code.google.com and let someone else build/submit it to cydia. Then they can appear to be playing by Apple/AT&T rules, and still get their app used the way they want.

GrandCentral Reborn As Google Voice

dustwun Calling out the tinfoil hat brigade (206 comments)

So, now instead of listening to 3 different phone numbers for one person, the NSA simply has to listen to one, or just play the calls back later at their convenience. It's PERFECT! /I am not currently a tinfoil subscriber, I just channel their logic sometimes.

Designer Babies

dustwun I saw this movie (902 comments)

While I didn't read the article, I did see the movie a few years back. It was kinda boring, so I do not support this.
I'll just go ahead and godwin this thread right now too: You know who else had a program to breed designer babies based on hair/eye color? Mod it funny or troll. Either way, history comes back every time and the movies/literature tell us how it'll happen.

SCO Proposes Sale of Assets To Continue Litigation

dustwun Government Bailout for SCO (290 comments)

I'm actually a little shocked that they haven't requested government financial assistance. It seems to be all the rage for companies with poor products, insane leadership, and failing business models.

mod this flamebait if you want, it's still true.

Dag Wieers Scoffs at Coordinated Linux Release Proposal

dustwun Re:Who really benefits? (240 comments)

A consumer desktop? That's what it takes to be a contributor? Let's take a look at RH's opensourcing of jboss, or check the kernel commit list for @redhat.com email addresses. What about the environmental tools spawned from RHEL, such as func, cobbler, and others? Then let's look at what folks like Ubuntu have given back. Sure it's a useful and flashy desktop. What project have they opensourced recently? Where's their contribution back to the community, other than their product?

CentOS releases the Xen4CentOS project returning Xen support to CentOS 6.

dustwun dustwun writes  |  about a year and a half ago

dustwun (662589) writes "From the announcement

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability for the Xen4 virtualisation stack for CentOS-6/x86_64 The software is delivered as a dedicated repository under http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/xen4/ and were developed with the help of the Xen Project, the Citrix Xen open-source team, GoDaddy.com's Cloud Engineering team and Rackspace Hosting.

This should help a large number of hosters more easily migrate their aging systems to a more recent version of CentOS, as well as take advantage of newer features. There have been some rumblings in the CentOS world, and this announcement seems show that they've been busy."
