"Odds are it's just a matter of configuration of the storage controller options in the BIOS and picking the correct Linux kernel storage controller driver for it. If it's a whole new controller driver that we need to write, great, we can do it if that's needed and someone provides the specs for it (that's what the Linux Driver Project does all the time.),” said greg Kroah-Hartman.

The takeaway is: no, neither Microsoft, nor Lenovo are deliberately locking Linux users out of their laptops. It’s just a matter of figuring out what’s wrong. And that’s something Linux community is very good at. Instead of vilifying companies, we should investigate the problem and try to fix it.

It’s actually a good story. I recall my very early days with Linux, when it would be newsworthy if you were fortunate enough to come across a laptop that worked with Linux, out of the box. Times have changed. Nowadays, if you come across one random laptop that doesn’t work with Linux, it becomes news.

“We have come a long way :)” said Kroah-Hartman.
Reports that Microsoft and Lenovo are deliberately locking Linux out of certain laptops are incorrect.

I just say boycott crap that doesn't work. With all the choices of hardware that works.. IBM can kiss my ass, same with MS. I'd quit using computers if I was bound to anything these shithole companies make. How about a hearty FUCK you microcrap, and Lenvhole.

Apple can make System 7 and olders open sources with this petition! Go to sign!
Many historians and many people adore the older operating systems such as Mac. Unfortunately, these systems are not open source and if anyone who wanted to improve them or even create an operating system from those systems is stopped by the fact that they are all closed source. With this petition...

Microsoft is ahead of Google Inc., a company that identifies with the open-source software movement more than most others. Still don't believe the love?
Over the course of the 90’s and ’00’s, Microsoft became notorious for competing aggressively with the very concept of open source – free software, developed by teams of volu…

Again, I'll have to disagree. My old man is past 71, he knew nothing about computers, when he was a windows user.
6 years ago, his computer died, he bought a new one that came with Linux.
I changed it, to make it look like a mix between Vista and MacOSX.
Well, ends up that, today, my old man even fsck's  his disks, when there's a file system corruption.
All unattended. Some times, when he wants to do something too complicated, I log into Teamviewer and help him. But, the man, alone, learned a lot of things, that, in his windows time, he never showed interest.
So, yes, if the OS and the programs are challenging and enticing, the user evolves. It's natural. It's the exposure to something that will educate and teach, without formal lessons.

Hello,

I want to install any version of Zabbix (Monitoring tool)with oracle as the database instead of MySQL, on Oracle Linux 6.7 as OS 64 bit platform provided by my organization . Is Zabbix supports Oracle database XE instead of MySQL at the time of installation? And is Zabbix is multithreaded or single threaded ?

Thank you for your answers in Advance!!

A separate db instance for just zabbix is in my opinion a very good solution. Since zabbix is a monitoring service you probably don't want it to depend on something you use for product being monitored. MySQL usually don't need extensive setup or administration skills, you can even run it in a docker container. Most linux distros allows you to just install it and use it.
Personally I ... hate oracle, like linux users used to hate windows. I don't know any reason why should I pay to oracle, especially after what they done with java and mysql. Thank God I don't need to administer oracle db.
Still our biggest client is using oracle and I need to live with that.
So ... I was never interested in using any monitoring system with oracle and I can't answer if zabbix can use it. For that you need to check on zabbix site.
...And since you are already paying to someone you should look at pingdom.com. They make a decent job at monitoring services... but it shouldn't replace your own zabbix instance.http://pingdom.com

TL;DR Soylent GitHub is made of People! - Microsoft is following through on their commitment to open source, and they've gotten a lot of press this week about it. This is very welcome, but let's not let the hype machine get out of control. Open source is about community.
Disclosure: I’m a Google employee and OSS lover and these are my personal views.

It makes sense, they make a ton of money off of open source. If they didn't, they wouldn't make the effort. And that's fine, I'll take it.
