No comments until you try it

Yeah, I'm talking to you AC. While I am a Linux user, I have had an opportunity to work with the new pad for an extended period of time (even though I don't own one). I can honestly say that being a version 1, this thing is pretty solid. Not to say that there isn't room for improvement because there most certainly is but I'll be curious to see what the next versions of the hardware will deliver (like read and forward facing cameras). Not to mention the competition that seems to be occurring thanks to this baby....and that's a Good Thing (tm) for all of us.

No shame in copying

ALL of the others have stolen\copied enough from FF. It's their turn to make FF look a bit more modern. I for one welcome this change especially on the Linux side since KDE 4's update did a really nice job of modernizing its UI.

Oh, for Pete's sake!!

WTH is the problem with the freakin' Debian community?!! So WHAT if this freeze will help Ubuntu! It will help Linux across the board and ESPECIALLY Debian as THE de facto Linux distro! Stop living in the past already, guys! I've been running Linux full time since '98 so I'm pretty sure that something like this will help ALL of us.

Management Tools

Obviously in an Enterprise situation, us admins like tools that make our lives easier. While Virtual Center isn't perfect, it does a pretty good job and continues to get better. Citrix XenServer obviously has the Citrix management framework wrapped around it and does a good job too. What kind of Enterprise level tools does KVM have? Also, what about vMotion capabilites?

Date bug kills VMware systems

El Mono Grande


I guess it's a good thing that I wasn't able to update VC and ESX last week to this revision level. For once in it's miserable life, our Change Management process actually did something useful. I'll have to make sure that management doesn't find out :-)

What VERSION of VMware Workstation?

Is the Linux version of Workstation vulnerable to this bug? The bulletin from Core doesn't go into details on what OS version or what release version of VM Workstation is affected.
