As open source software matures and is used by more and more major corporations, it is becoming clear that the enterprise software game has changed. Sam Ramji, CEO of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, believes that open source software is a positive sum game, as reflected in his keynote at ApacheCon in Vancouver in May.
Invoking his love of game theory, Ramji stated emphatically that open source software is a positive-sum game, where the more contributors there are to the common good, the more good there is for everyone. This idea is the opposite of a zero-sum game, where if someone benefits or wins, then another person must suffer, or lose.
Over the years, I've had my fair share of disagreements with both Linux and Linux users. But as Linux has entered its second quarter century, I've found myself thinking about all the fabulous things that run Linux.
Two years ago, I wrote an article about the five reasons I'd rather run Windows 8 than Linux. While Windows 8 didn't work out all that well, Windows 10 is clearly a barn-burner. Today, in fact, you can find Windows 10 running inside a Raspberry Pi (and it's free for individuals) as well as inside of very inexpensive PCs.
But ever since I threw OctoPrint on a $35 Raspberry Pi and created a 3D printing server, I've felt I've come to terms with Linux. I think we can be friends again.
So I thought, if I can use Linux to build 3D objects, what else would I use Linux for? Here are 10 places where the phrase "I'd rather run Linux than Windows" applies quite nicely.
EnterprisersProject: Four ways to make the most of your new CIO role.
My requirements are:- installed on multiple servers - will have a configuration where you can set per service: - start / stop commands or just service name - number of servers the service needs to run on - when number of servers the service runs on < configured number, start service on another server - when number of servers the service runs on > configured number, stop the service on one random server (or based on some rules)
It's similar to the nodejs cluster module, but on different servers.
Nice to have:- move services around based on load
If anyone knows something that can do this, please point me in the right direction.

With the current focus on the cloud it might seem that the Internet works from the center out - if the Internet can be said to have a center.

NetworkWorld: Debian Stable 8.5 is reminiscent of Ubuntu's early days. It's stable and fast, but just a wee bit stale.
I am currently working on a school project, where i have an enviornment of serveral pc's, with both windows (clients) and Linux (servers)
I have a DMZ/Webserver atm, that i need to check every five minutes, if there is access from the outside.
I made it simple, and chose to just ping it and have it send an email to me. This is working so far, but the problem is, that I need to make it run by itself every five minutes. How should I do this?
Atm my script looks like this.
.#!/bin/bash serveraddr="192.168.1.116" mailfailure="firstname.lastname@example.org"
testping= ping $serveraddr -c 1
if [ "$testping" == "0" ] then
echo "$Serveraddr is down :("
mail -s "WARNING READ THIS" $mailfailure
