Kubernetes helped Comcast update to an IP-based streaming system, said Erik St. Martin at CloudNativeCon:
Comcast cable is undergoing a major technical shift. The company is moving away from an always-on transmission of every single channel to every single customer, with the signal converted on either end by a piece of proprietary hardware, which is how cable has worked for decades. The new system is IP-based, on-demand streaming model where channel signal is sent only when requested by the user, explained Erik St.

OpenStack Swift is designed for maximum uptime, like the birds that can stay aloft for months at a time:
The goal of OpenStack Swift is modeled after Alpine swift birds that can stay in the air for months at a time without coming down. These birds even eat and drink while flying. Not unlike the birds, OpenStack Swift is designed for maximum uptime to be able to serve data to your users all the time without stopping, even if parts of your cluster are down. With Swift, you should still be able to store new data and even to upgrade your cluster in prod...

The trend toward tiny operating continues with unikernels; check out these key projects:
When it comes to operating systems, container technologies, and unikernels, the trend toward tiny continues. What is a unikernel? It is essentially a pared-down operating system (the unikernel) that can pair with an application into a unikernel application, typically running within a virtual machine. They are sometimes called library operating systems because they include libraries that enable applications to use hardware and network protocols in...

Which Linux distro is right for you depends partly on what you're used to; @jlwallen has suggestions:
Ah, the age-old question...one that holds far more importance than simply pointing out which Linux distribution is a fan-favorite. Why is that? Let me set the stage: You have a user—one who has, most likely, spent the majority of their time in front of either a Windows or Mac machine—and they’ve come to you for an alternative. You want to point them in a direction that will bring about the least amount of hiccups along the way and highlight the p...

Hmm, true i suppose..

My very first taste of Linux was one called Storm Linux 1.0 (a good 19 years ago at least). Had NFI what it was about, but i did have a minimalistic Window Manager, WindowMaker.

Then RedHat Linux 5.0/6.0 - f**k did I hate the RPM system.. Ick.

Then I got into FreeBSD for a while and coming back to Linux, I went Debian. Love DEB package management. Still running WindowMaker, I might add, despite KDE kicking up a storm.

Lovinf FreeBSD so much, I had to try Slackware and loved it. Tried Gentoo, but couldn't be as loyal.

I started to like KDE as it was a simple, clsssic UI making managing things a little easier. WindowMaker still holds strong in my heart, but i needed a bit more.

Now I run daily LMDE for workstations/laptops mostly. Arch when I need a Linux server. LMDE for the simplicity and beauty of Debian, but with a more active management and less bloaty ugh user friendly nonsense like Ubuntu. Mint is a nice turn to this mind. Arch I keep by because I use it on a couple of servers, which I generally use FreeBSD for. Arch is seemingly identical to manage as FreeBSD when managed mostly binary.

We be creatures of habbit 😁

edit: And I use xfce4 for the most part.
