Usenix/Uselinux in Anaheim
It was a great show. Usenix has always been a great show offering high-quality sessions and a really nice mix of “non-suites”. Having Usenix/Uselinux made it all the better. I am sure there will be serious cooperation between Usenix and Linux International to continue to making Linux a big part of Usenix.
If I have one complaint it was that there was too much to do. Add a Linux International board meeting to a schedule that included sessions, talks and BoFs from 9AM to 11PM with parallel Linux tracks plus the normal Usenix tracks and there just wasn't time to breathe or, more importantly, sit down with a beer and talk to fellow kernel hackers, systems administrators or vendors.
Anyone who wants copies of the Proceedings of this conference, or to find out what the future holds with regard to Usenix, should contact USENIX Association at email@example.com, check out their web site at http://www.usenix.org or, if all else fails, call 510-528-8649. Oh, and if you don't know what 8649 spells, you must be new to the Unix community.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
