Simon Wardley is never shy to share a provocative opinion. :)

A summary of his latest missive: OpenStack is already doomed because of their inability, or unwillingness, to produce AWS clones. There’s nothing new in Simon’s position there, but it’s his bluntest statement of opinion yet on OpenStack’s prospects.

Eucalyptus HQ has a big TV on the wall that displays the #eucalyptus-devel IRC channel so developers can always see what is going on and jump in if they need to. Until recently, a laptop drove that display, but that seemed like overkill to me, so I went to employ my Raspberry Pi running the Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix to do that instead. Since the IRC program it’s using, irssi, is text-based I don’t need to use any of the Pi’s precious little memory to run anything graphical, so I just...
