Hey, if I can take anybody down a few notches, you have to admin you'd get far more press for knocking google a little than anybody else.
IT's all about the attention. I get enough attention, I can write a book. Maybe a movie deal.

Don't worry about Google or Apple or RedHat or pretty much anyone else. Microsoft is still the elephant in the room. They need to be destroyed first.

(Although most real elephants are capable of writing a better operating system than Vista 7.)

That was from the cover of BusinessWeek on March 3, 2003.

Here's the cover: http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/03_09/b3822602_tc102.htm

And here's the article: http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/03_09/b3822601_tc102.htm

The article is called "The Linux Uprising: how a ragtag band of software geeks is threatening Sun and Microsoft - and turning the computer world upside down."

Linux has come a long way in the six years since then. :)

interesting.

they predicted a growth from 13.7%, but actualy its 12.7%  according to ...

 

http://www.linux-watch.com/news/NS5369154346.html

in 2k7

maybe its not as accurate... but... who's got the other > 80%?

growth isn't 100%

12.7 means 12.7 more than they had before.

According to Dell, Ubuntu is a Microsoft operating system:

Contrary to the article, Dell does seem to have corrected the mistake.

I also recall seeing orders for server hardware, on which "Microsoft" is listed as the manufacturer of a zero-cost option called "no operating system."

That, at least, is appropriate.

Well yes, technically it would be their single best operating system ever.

Has anyone <strike>Ghosted</strike> imaged a Windows installation lately, using Linux tools? Is it sufficient to use dd to back up the 512-byte MBR, and then use ntfsclone to get the partitions?

grr, just an FYI: the supposedly "safe" ntfs-3g write support does not seem to be, in fact, safe.

Unsafe as in, 'doze has trouble with the filesystem after ntfs-3g has touched it?

As in, Linux itself corrupted the FS in a way that Linux was having trouble reading, and I could no longer write files from Linux without getting -EIO from syscalls; and, CHKDSK found a bunch of orphaned files and free space bitmap errors after booting back into windows.

What happened was that I was doing a large ntfsclone, and Linux (Fedora 11) rebooted while my back was turned; I booted back into Linux to try again, and halfway through the second attempt at an ntfsclone, the above-mentioned errors started to emerge.

Freakdog, either way it's not supposed to happen. The FS driver runs in a userland process that just talks directly to the block layer. If the OS crashes, even for causes unknown as you say, it would take a really bizarre and really unusual situation for you to be able to blame the OS kernel on the resultant FS corruption. Remember, if the OS kernel crashes, from the perspective of the FUSE driver it's just like somebody turned off the power switch - because that process is supposed to be isolated, and NTFS is supposed to be a journaled filesystem that is crash resistant. Instead, what actually happened was a rather severe corruption that affected exactly the FS nodes that I was writing to at the time. So clearly we're talking about the NTFS-3G driver itself being buggy, to like, 99.9% certainty.

How's the performance of FUSE been for you, buggy userspace drivers notwithstanding?

pretty good... my bottleneck is usb2, not FUSE.

So I was pondering this whole drive/lvm/raid thing.
Let's say I have a 40gig drive and 2 20 gig drives.
Can I make one lvm out of the 40gig drive, and 1 lvm of the same size out of the 2 20 gig drives and then use software raid to have one mirror the other?
I was thinking, it's getting to be the time in my life where I don't want to deal with hardware failures anymore. So I figure I can mirror the drives of the next machine I build so if one fails I'm still good.
I know raid is generally hardware (and not inexpensive) level, but I've heard of software raid, and if it works (does it?) can you run it on top of an lvm, or is raid more block based?
