Incorrect statements about Elisa

Matt Layman's picture

Alex,

Thanks for posting an article about clutter. It is a great toolkit and worth talking about. However, your introduction makes statements that are simply incorrect.

You reference the Elisa project. First, it's interesting because your article was written in October yet Elisa changed its name to Moovida back in June of 2009.

Second, and more importantly, Elisa/Moovida has never used the clutter toolkit. They use the Pigment toolkit which is developed by Fluendo, the same company that develops Moovida (so the Moovida project is pretty invested into using their own toolkit). I'm sure that they work hard to make their toolkit useful for their purposes and wouldn't want to have their work mis-credited to some other toolkit.

I'm keenly aware that Moovida uses Pigment because I develop code for the Entertainer Media Center, another media center application that *does* use clutter. I probably wouldn't be working on this other project if there was already a larger media center application that used clutter.

I realize that your article is mostly tailored to be a HOWTO for using clutter, but I would expect that as a journalist for Linux Journal, you would research and verify your statements. I hope that my journalistic critique is not received negatively. I just want to give people credit where credit is due. The Fluendo developers deserve that much.

Thanks,
Matt

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
