RedHat’s Unfakeable Linux

Filed under: Linux, open-source — skalyanasundaram @ 1:46 pm

As a reply to Oracle, RedHat said they have unfakeable linux. Great! Look at the RedHat’s responds .


Oracle’s Unbreakable Linux

Filed under: Linux — skalyanasundaram @ 11:20 am

It is very clear that oracle’s long term dream is that to become a OS owning company. Oracle released its variation of linux simply “Enterprise Linux 2.0” or “Unbreakable Linux 2.0”. It is very unfair if i say it is their own version of linux. Because they have not done anything other than steeling from RedHat. They simple took the RedHat Linux and changed all TradeMark symbols to their own and released it. They have not done anything technically on linux. A big business move has been made from oracle but not a technical move. This is “Unbearable Linux” surely for the RedHat people. It is like hiting on the back.

Oracle is trying to become an os owing company since long time , i think just to compete with Microsoft. They have no option other than Linux. Because it is free and open. But they are not ready to spend much for this. But still want to acheive their dream. Long back there was a rumour for tie-up of oracle and Ubuntu. The founder of Canonical said on CNET News says

“I don’t think Oracle is going to make large amounts of money selling support for Linux. I don’t think it will ever be a high-margin, high-profit, exciting growth business for them. It’s becoming more and more of a commodity,” Mark Shuttleworth, founder and chief executive of Ubuntu developer Canonical”. The article is here.

Oracle mentioned that they liked CentOs project and wanted to clone RedHat’s Linux. There was a rumour that they are targeting for SuSE too. But SuSe was bought by Novell and if they want SuSE they have to buy the Novell including other product which is not required for them. If that happened it is sure that oracle will cut off all the project from Novell other than SuSE. May be too expensive for them to buy Novell (i guess) and they droped that idea. And now they have announced in their open conference that they will provide support for all RedHat’s customer.

Whomever it is , you have to be paid for the support that you are giving for linux and you dont get any profit other than this support. But for such a big company why cant they take the sources and put the packages together and make their own version of Linux, why to hit on the back of RedHat. There is being something on the back. Either they have a deal with RedHat for something and Slowly they will take over RedHat may be after few months they will anounce that they are buying RedHat or Oracle is really afraid of RedHat because they  might take over oracle 😉 few  months back RedHat had
bought JBoss who is equal competetor for Oracle in Application server side. So Oracle wanted to attack on RedHat business to put them down.

Anyway i liked the penguin logo they made with protecting shield. Look at this pic


Lets play the “wait and see” game for further updates.

An article more about Unbreakable Linux 2.0 is available here.

Dancing Images on the page you are seeing!

Filed under: Script — skalyanasundaram @ 1:16 pm

Some nice script my friend send me. Just copy and paste it in your address bar of your browser. All the images which are exist in that page will start dancing. Logic is very simple. But a good kind…..

javascript:R=0; x1=.1; y1=.05; x2=.25; y2=.24; x3=1.6; y3=.24; x4=300; y4=200; x5=300; y5=200; DI=document.images; DIL=DI.length; function A(){for(i=0; i<DIL; i++){DIS=DI[ i ].style; DIS.position='absolute'; DIS.left=Math.sin(R*x1+i*x2+x3)*x4+x5; DIS.top=Math.cos(R*y1+i*y2+y3)*y4+y5}R++}setInterval('A()',5); void(0)

Let see the proper intended one.



x1=.1; y1=.05; // initial varaiables

x2=.25; y2=.24;

x3=1.6; y3=.24;

x4=300; y4=200;

x5=300; y5=200;

DI=document.images; //get list of images from DOM

DIL=DI.length; // count hoe many images

function A() {

for(i=0; i<DIL; i++){ //repeat for all images

DIS=DI[ i ].style; //get reference to style attribuet of each image

DIS.position=’absolute’; //change the img attribute position to absolute so that we can set our own, make dance

DIS.left=Math.sin(R*x1+i*x2+x3)*x4+x5; // chaneg position and make dance using sin,cos logic





setInterval(‘A()’,5); //repeat the same for ever with a gap of 5 sec


Is it a nice one? I Hope so…

Configure Evolution for inbox.com

Filed under: Linux, open-source — skalyanasundaram @ 8:29 am

I am using inbox.com for atleast two and half years. It has some pretty good features all together. Mail account, Web mail access, personal notes like Tomboy in SUSE, calender (not as good as googl’s), personal storage u can upload files what ever you want, it is like your own storage, and photo sharing like flikr and many more. Even for uploading you no need to use the web client which allows you to upload less than 10 MB of file size. They have the concept of virtual folder, just paste your files in that virtual folder it does everything asynchronously it is something like ifolder.

So i wanted to configure my evolution to access my inbox.com. I had gone for help page and was searching for evolution. It has all INlook, thunderbird, and what ever. But as usual evolution was missing. So i felt i should write something on my own. I wrote it.

If you are searching for help for configuring evolution with inbox.com then view here.
