we released the epidemic gnu linux including the script smxi
we released yesterday the epidemic gnu linux (in english version) including the script smxi/sgx already pre installed. As I said to h2 (the smxi developer) in the past I was translating to the english one brazilian distro called epidemic gnu linux which I'm one of the devlopers and we included the script smxi/sgxi pre installed on it in order to facilitate to the users. Besides, a lot of conveniences for the final users. Thus, I would like this fantastic community try it and whoever can downlod it. the download links are available there at http://www.epidemiclinux.org/ and . We announced the release at the distrowatch. com and you can view at http://distrowatch.com but I quoted it down there below as follows:
"The second beta build of Epidemic Linux 3.1, a Debian-based Brazilian distribution for the desktop, has been released. Improvements in this release include: replacement of bootsplash by Plymouth; significant reduction of boot time; new boot options for systems with NVIDIA and ATI graphics cards; support for legacy NVIDIA drivers; introductory support for English as the first step towards greater internationalisation of Epidemic's utilities; inclusion of Esu, a new tool that gives system administrators a choice of user authentication methods for performing privileged tasks; replacement of GRUB with GRUB 2; ext4 becomes the default file system; i686-optimised Linux kernel 2.6.30; KDE 4.3 with Compiz Fusion; installer improvements.... Read the full release announcement (in Portuguese) for further details and some screenshots. Interested beta testers can download the live DVD image from here: epidemic-3.1-b2-1-i686.iso (1,637MB, MD5)."

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
