					    Why we love SUSE Studio




    Tom Henderson has tested Novell's new tool for creating SUSE instances that he says has no parallel in the industry. "We first saw SUSE
    Studio in beta at VMWorld in 2008, a skunkworks tool for building SUSE instances. It's come a long way since then," Henderson
    writes, "Although, there is always room for improvement (such as additional configuration options for servers or desktops), Studio is a
    'cloud-ish' app that ought to sell a lot of SUSE operating systems just based on its ease of integration and fleet management provisioning
    skills."

    Microsoft Newly Embracing Open Source Makes Senseby Amy Vernon


    Microsoft seems to be spending a lot of time lately trying to convince the open source world it really means it no harm. And, just maybe, it's true. See, Microsoft is about making
    money. It's a business. When a business sees dollars being siphoned off by other sources, it begins to pay attention. A well-run business doesn't wait until it's lost the battle to
    co-opt the model picking away at it. Stuart McKee, Microsoft's National Technology Officer for the U.S., spoke this week at the Open... 13

    To Live and Die in a Socially Networked Worldby Alan Shimel


    NOTICE: This post is not about open source. It is very much about community though. It is about how social networking fosters a sense of community when we need it perhaps
    the most. It deals with some real life experiences I have recently been through and how social networking has played a signif icant role. This is a bit of a cross-post from my own
    ashimmy blog. I apologize in advance for it being off topic and will return to the usual open source theme tomorrow.I got some bad news last night. A... 2
