GNOME – CANONICAL – JUJU – RED HAT

More on the Gnome  and Canonical merger

Ubuntu is a great operating system, and this year it has gotten even better. Why? The maker of the distribution, Canonical, ditched the much-maligned Unity desktop environment. Instead, the latest version of the distro uses the far-better GNOME.

Not only does Ubuntu get better by using GNOME, but GNOME should improve thanks to Canonical’s contributions. Today, the GNOME Foundation Advisory board announces that Canonical has joined. This makes a lot of sense, as the company’s popular operating system should bring a renewed interest in the desktop environment. In other words, it is win/win for both.

But what exactly is the Advisory Board? The GNOME Foundation describes it as “a body of stakeholder organizations and companies who support the GNOME Project by providing funding and expert consultation. The board includes Google, the Linux Foundation, and the Free Software Foundation, among others.”

Only great things can come from this relationship. Look, folks, GNOME is one of the best desktop environments — if not the best — and Canonical’s involvement with the Advisory Board should prove fruitful. Even if you don’t run Ubuntu, and prefer, say, Fedora with GNOME, this should still benefit you.

CANONICAL GOT JUJU EYEBALLS FOR STORAGE

Canonical’s is mixing new potions in its Juju charm store.

Juju is Canonical’s open source modelling tool for cloud software — it handles operations designed to deploy, configure, manage, maintain and scale applications via the command line interface, or through its optional GUI.

The Juju charm store in an ‘online marketplace’ where charms (and bundles of charms) can be uploaded, released (published) and optionally shared with other users.

Recommended charms have been vetted and reviewed by a so-called ‘Juju Charmer’ and all updates to the charm are also vetted prior to landing — there is also a ‘Community’ section of charms that have not enjoyed the same ratification process.

I did my homework before indulging so sorry but your wrong and yes i knew all about Laurel canyon and Jim Morrison and the whole gang of CIA formed hippy bands. I listened to people who lived it and read a lot prior to dabbling in narcotics. I also had a doctors book of all known drugs with the full chemical make up side effects dosages and risks listed. I never acquired drugs from the street i had a supplier who was a pharmacologist from Cambridge uni ; ). As for your asumption that im in some way part of Spudgy Pangs gang your missing the most obvious fact, my name. Look up satire in the dictionary, Thanks for your reply but your veiled threat of being out of my depth is laughable as i’m ex Police so please dox me do your worst and reap what you sow.

Why would I waste my time doxing you? I don’t give a rats about you, who you are. or where you live.  Congrats on being gaslit by the 60’s, a Cambridge pharmacist and posts that end up in spam :o)

3D GNOME

According to a post at inyourpocket.com titled Gnomenclature: Wrocław’s Gnomes, “Although it sounds like little more than a twee tourist gimmick, gnomes have long held a place in Polish folklore, and their current iconic incarnation as symbols of Wrocław actually has a direct correlation to the political climate of the 1980s. Under communism gnomes became the absurdist calling card of the ‘Orange Alternative’ movement – an underground protest movement that used absurdity and nonsense to stage peaceful, yet subversive protests. Armed with paint cans and led by Waldemar ‘Major’ Fydrych, an artist and art history student at Wrocław University, the group specifically ridiculed the establishment’s attempts to censor public space.

“During communism, any anti-establishment graffiti or public art was quickly painted over by the militia; upon seeing fresh daubs of paint, the pranksters of the Orange Alternative quickly painted over them yet again…with gnomes.”

The gnome was used as a way to fight back against the Polish communist regime, but has continued on as the symbol of the city, and you can find more than 300 gnomes around the city. There’s even a websitededicated to the gnomes of Wrocław that tells their story and provides downloadable maps of where to find them.

By now, you’re probably wondering where 3D printing technology fits into this story. Poland celebrated 100 years of independence this year, and a man named Waldemar Plusa, along with the entire city of Wrocław, used the gnome as a way to commemorate the important anniversary.

Everything went swimmingly during the second launch, which took place early last month. This time, the 3D printed Wrocław gnome’s rocket made it all the way to stratosphere – a level of the atmosphere higher than commercial airlines fly.

In addition, the rocket sent out a broadcast of the gnome’s best wishes for his home country of Poland to the world, available through the organizers’ websites. The 3D printed gnome by Materialise, which is a symbol of “the innovative spirit of the Wrocław region,” was the first gnome ever to celebrate the country’s 100th anniversary in space…
