J'aime !
 
I'm in the process of downloading the Photon ISO now (seems rather large BTW). In the mean time I'm browsing through the Photon github. What struck me at once is, exactly as Joe mentioned in this article, VMware seems to have gone out of it's way to repackage everything. How much of a clean slate they really have will be interesting to see, but it makes me wonder why?  Perhaps collaborating with other upstream communities makes more sense than NIH'ing everything.
I can understand the reasoning from VMware - wanting to control it's own destiny but maintaining an OS is a lot of work especially if you're not collaborating upstream. In the past VMware's model has been more of a consumer of open source than a contributor.
Speaking of which, I wonder how that GPL suit is going ...

It'll be interesting to watch this play out from the outside for a change.
Earlier this week, VMware launched its lightweight operating system tailored for running Linux containers. Naturally, I was interested to see what VMware was cooking up, since that’s the same target we have for Project Atomic. First, it’s great to see more interest in solving the problem of running Linux containers at scale. Even better, VMware seems to be interested in doing its work in the open. It’s always great to see companies that traditio...

Didn't the rest of the show test and refute his "hypothesis" ?

I see more and more projects doing the "curl | sudo bash" method of installing something.  Not good on huge number of levels.  This is a good rant of people doing this for containers.

Yes, I know docker doesn't support signed images yet, hopefully that will happen someday...
None of these "fancy" tools still builds by a traditional make command. Every tool has to come up with their own, incomptaible, and non-portable "method of the day" of building. And since nobody is still able to compile things from scratch, everybody just downloads precompiled binaries from ...

Excellente initiative de #Google !
 
When we publicly launched Freebase back in 2007, we thought of it as a "Wikipedia for structured data." So it shouldn't be surprising that we've been closely watching the Wikimedia Foundation's project Wikidata[1] since it launched about two years ago. We believe strongly in a robust community-driven effort to collect and curate structured knowledge about the world, but we now think we can serve that goal best by supporting Wikidata -- they’re growing fast, have an active community, and are better-suited to lead an open collaborative knowledge base.

So we've decided to help transfer the data in Freebase to Wikidata, and in mid-2015 we’ll wind down the Freebase service as a standalone project. Freebase has also supported developer access to the data, so before we retire it, we’ll launch a new API for entity search powered by Google's Knowledge Graph.

Loading Freebase into Wikidata as-is wouldn't meet the Wikidata community's guidelines for citation and sourcing of facts -- while a significant portion of the facts in Freebase came from Wikipedia itself, those facts were attributed to Wikipedia and not the actual original non-Wikipedia sources. So we’ll be launching a tool for Wikidata community members to match Freebase assertions to potential citations from either Google Search or our Knowledge Vault[2], so these individual facts can then be properly loaded to Wikidata. 

We believe this is the best first step we can take toward becoming a constructive participant in the Wikidata community, but we’ll look to continually evolve our role to support the goal of a comprehensive open database of common knowledge that anyone can use.

Here are the important dates to know:

Before the end of March 2015
- We’ll launch a Wikidata import review tool
- We’ll announce a transition plan for the Freebase Search API & Suggest Widget to a Knowledge Graph-based solution

March 31, 2015
- Freebase as a service will become read-only
- The website will no longer accept edits 
- We’ll retire the MQL write API

June 30, 2015
- We’ll retire the Freebase website and APIs[3]
- The last Freebase data dump will remain available, but developers should check out the Wikidata dump[4]

Excellent service ! Mon dentiste et l'hygiéniste ont pris le temps d'expliquer leurs interventions. C'est à la fois pédagogique et ça rassure. Ayant essayé plusieurs cliniques à Montréal, c'est la seule qui a su démontrer suffisamment de professionnalisme et c'est la seule qui est prête à prendre les assurances étudiantes de l'ASEQ sans que j'ai eu besoin de les contacter moi-même. À en parler à vos amis ! ;-)
