Nuvola: the Linux Choice for Cloud-y Music
Nuvola Player (formerly known as google-music-frame) is a Linux application that integrates cloud-based music services into your Linux desktop. I've tested it only with Google Music, but Nuvola now supports Google Music, Grooveshark, Hype Machine and 8tracks. It also supports Last.FM scrobbling.
What makes Nuvola better than a standard Web browser is that it integrates with the Linux desktop. Nuvola gets its own tray icon and supports multimedia keys on keyboards that have them. I traditionally store my music files in Dropbox, but since Google Music has excellent support on Android phones, I find myself using the cloud-based service almost exclusively. Nuvola makes that experience much nicer. Check it out at https://launchpad.net/nuvola-player.
With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
