Running Fedora core 5 test 2 on VMware



Of course we weren't going to just wait and see what it is. I went ahead and installed it on my VMware. Check out a couple of print screens here... (I'll add more as they come)


























What I observed here quickly is...
  • The look is getting a lot slicker, I mean if Redhat has to compete with those slicker looking models like Mandriva and Ubuntu, it has to start working really hard on the looks. You won't win the desktop market if you keep looking pale.
  • Clear segregation of properties like the base, applications etc
  • Lots of new features like Tomcat5 and all other binaries like Xerces, Oro, log4j etc
  • I hope the support for Samba3 and also Samba4 gets a lot more attention and more intuitive interface where connecting to Windows networks.
This is my quick check on this test version. Sure there are going to be a lot of improvements and we will watch them closely.

And to close some more pretty screens (upon restarting)









Funny thing is I did install VMware tools and they didn't complain really, I just couldn't pick resolution of my choice.



I'm sure we'll find a way soon to install VMware WKS on it, but don't forget that Xen is ported with these releases.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
