Ubuntu does almost as well on OpenStack. I think it's probably a safe bet that no matter what cloud, Ubuntu is on, if not number one, pretty darn close.
Ubuntu is more than twice as popular on the Amazon cloud as all other operating systems combined.

+امیرمسعود پورموسی The Ubuntu desktop is not going away. I'm just pointing out that the desktop is only a small part of Canonical's business.

OK, so it costs a mint, but I confess I'm still tempted by it. 
 
Congratulations to Tesla for achieving the highest score ever recorded at Consumer Reports!
Tesla just made Consumer Reports history with a perfect score of 100 for the P85D Model S.

About as good a photo of a child and a pup as I've ever seen. Well done!

This is a ticking time-bomb of an Android security hole. If you have Recordable Activator on your smartphone or tablet: Uninstall it. Now.
If you have this app, you should uninstall it immediately.

When oh when will they stop using "gate" after everything. 
It is a hack not a friggin conspiracy.
Living through the original one was enough "gates" for me.

The moral of this story is Know Your License. This applies to programmers and writers just as much it does to photographers. 
Photographers, be warned: if you share a photo online with a Creative Commons license that allows for commercial usage, you need to be okay with if that ac

Pro tip: Be very careful what stock photographs you use for your ads lest you give people the wrong idea about your "services."
 
Ah, the dangers of using stock photography ;-)

+Måns Rullgård Ah. Must say I was never aware of that particular Google Image Search feature. Of course, duplicate use can happen after the fact as well. For important and widespread, I imagine the sensible thing is to use custom photography.

I was worried. But after watching the trailer, I think it will be good! If the story behind it is good or not, is another story.

Data-centers? We don't need no stinkin' data-centers!
Don't think the cloud can handle your business? Think again. Netflix is getting ready to shut down its last data center and put everything it has in the cloud. The Wall Street Journal broke the story that Netflix was going to completely move its data centers to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) ...

With a $100-million more in VC cash and a development partnership with Intel, Mirantis looks like they're going places.
Mirantis, a pure-play open-source cloud company, has landed both another $100 million investment and a partnership with Intel. The stock market may be going crazy, but Intel is still backing open-source and the cloud by leading a $100 million investment in the OpenStack company Mirantis.

Oracle really doesn't get security, and they haven't for well over a decade now.
Oracle's CSO has some wrongheaded notions about her area of expertise. What is the company doing about that?

+Russell Nelson Sure.  Just rip out all the NIC drivers and, for good measure, disable any NICs present in the system via UEFI, BIOS,  etc.  Also remove the desktop stuff. And systemd.  Definitely systemd.

Introduction
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has been writing about technology and the business of technology since CP/M-80 was the cutting edge, PC operating system; 300bps was a fast Internet connection; WordStar was the state of the art word processor; and we liked it!

Steven was also the first writer to notice this little thing called the Web and he thought it just might be important some day. Who knew!? :-)
