Have you ever wondered why +IBM Power Systems talks about the value of "Open"?  I did and posted my thoughts in a recent blog entry...

I'd love your thoughts.

True Jeff but customers still think x86 is open. They have flexibility to buy from any vendor. At least this is situation now. Ecosystem is another problem. It is struggle to explain them about Truly Open and pesudo open. How to enable faster growth of ecosystem both around software and hardware.  +Jeff Scheel​

Not sure if anyone's seen +Jon Masters post on LinkedIn.  Gotta love the passion.

Sounds like we should invite him to join the #powerlinux community where we learned the value of +Fedora Project and other community distros a couple years ago.

Sorry, could resist being a little troll-ish....

A second STAC benchmark on #PowerLinux , this time the A2 (http://bit.ly/1Moafo5).

Perhaps instead of people asking me "why use Linux on Power?", I need to start asking, "why NOT use Linux on Power?"
Newly published STAC-A2 benchmarks show POWER8 outperforming x86 servers on standard financial industry workloads.

Checkout the great work by +Dinar Valeev from +SUSE on Power!
 
+openSUSE Tumbleweed for #powerlinux is tested by #openQA I'm hacking on to add PowerVM and PowerNV platforms + CPU/Mem/PCI hotplug tests
openQA is a testing framework mainly for distributions

Are you looking for access to +IBM Power Systems to use to port your opensource project?  Have you tried our labs at Oregon State University in the U.S. or UNICAMP in Brazil but find the access to have too much latency?

If so, perhaps the new OpenPOWER HUB in Brno, CZ would meet your needs.  This is the 3rd lab WW to provide free access to opensource developers who want to port their applications to #PowerLinux .  It's a collaboration with +Redhat and Brno University of Technology.
Red Hat in the Czech republic, Faculty of Information Technology at the Brno University of Technology and IBM Linux Technology Center have partnered to provide access to POWER based servers to enable an open platform for innovation to the open source community.

Ron Gordon does a great job of pointing out many of the decisions one must make in deploying Linux.  Hopefully, you can find this helpful...

Power continues to push forward with Linux.  Momentum continues to build.  What keeps you from using Linux on Power?

My son found this video and I loved it.  After working at IBM for 20+ years and having participated in our opensource work, the request sounds COMPLETELY like things I've heard.

Enjoy!

You gotta love the freedom of the Internet.  It allows everyone (including myself) to take positions (I personally do so sparingly, including in this instance...).

Whether this blog is right or wrong, it does pose some interesting food for thought.  However, it still reminds me of the Mel Brooks movie "History of the World, Part 1" where with the advent of art, we get the first art critic...

Enjoy!!!
Golang is Trash. In the process of working on getting cgo to work on illumos, I learned that golang is trash. I should mention that I have no real opinion on the language itself; I'm not a languages person (C will do, thanks), and that's not the part of the system I have experience with anyway.
