Pingback: Valve joins the Linux Foundation
under the European LinuxCon held these days in Edinburgh, the Linux Foundation has announced that the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA) becomes part of one of their collaborative projects , reports ZDnet .
Open Virtualization Alliance is dedicated primarily to the development of system virtualization own Linux , Kernel-based Virtual Machine, which is commonly known by its acronym, KVM. KVM is free software that allows run virtual machines on x86 and has hardware support from Intel and AMD, waiting for IBM to join the bandwagon.
“ KVM is growing rapidly due to its unique combination of high performance, low cost and flexibility “, says Scott Firth, director of marketing for IBM. “ Linux Foundation OVA help extend its reach to more companies and projects from Linux to cloud computing. ”
“ The Open Virtualization Alliance is a natural addition to our collaborative projects and we are pleased to support all virtualization technologies that help advance Linux “, says Jim Zemlin, president of the Linux Foundation.
“ Can KVM Linux Foundation make a name of weight in the virtualization space? ” asks Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols in his article on ZDNet. And that’s the big question at this point, according to the fierce competition that exists in this segment. That is why the need for an open platform is undeniable.
makers of The Linux Foundation itself had promised a solution that would allow different Linux distributions can be initiated, installed and used without problems on new machines with Windows 8 and UEFI Secure Boot , and just announced the availability of this solution.
James Bottomley, CTO of Parallels, and núlceo maintainer responsible for these efforts, announced on February 8 that the patch UEFI Secure Boot The Linux Foundation was ready to start being utilized.
This first edition of this solution, though, is rather aimed at advanced users, something that experts have commented that indicated that users hesitation to implement this solution should wait for the new batch of distributions which will be launched in April and May and probably integrate this solution automatically.

The week started with news relevant to the Linux Foundation: With an investment of 500 thousand dollars, Hewlett Packard Platinum became a member of the organization. The move was defined in the official statement as “a long-term strategic investment”, with the potential to benefit both parties.The U.S. company will occupy a place in the top stratum of the Foundation, along Fujitsu, IBM, Intel, Oracle, NEC, Samsung and Qualcomm. In addition, HP will have a place on the board of the organization and be involved in decision-making on developments, new Linux-based initiatives, events, etc.. This is an excerpt from the official press release:
[...] With many of its products running on Linux, including servers, printers, and network equipment, HP understands that computing is changing rapidly, prioritizing Linux and collaborative development in their progress to the future.
become Platinum member, Hewlett Packard has the ability to get more out of projects like Open WebOS. Recall that the mobile OS created by Palm Inc. was included in devices like HP TouchPad and HP Pre 3. But his experience in the market was short and missed.Discontinuation of gadgets with WebOS provoked much speculation about the future of software, but finally decided to turn to Open Source and keep it as a bet on future . The increased presence of its developers in the Linux Foundation can be an interesting twist to the platform. Track | Linux Foundation.
Today … After news of Steampac newly released 3D also comes another new Blender related, this stunning development for animation and 3D design. This time it is the publication of a new Open Movie of Blender Foundation. Its title: Tears of Steel .
This time the short is totally different from what we had seen in the past, remember, this is the fourth after Elephants Dream (2006), Big Buck Bunny (2008) and Sintel (2010) – as it mixes images computer generated and real actors, with a visually stunning result again demonstrates that-again-that Blender can be used for projects of any size in the field of audiovisual production.
The story we tell is really strange, but I still think that for now the shorts are the Blender Foundation plus a tribute to the power of Blender for his screenplay masterpieces. The film, which you can get many more details on the official website, below:
