Title: Happy Birthday Linux!
In this episode: Kernel development, mailing list arguments over GPL and the SFC, PowerShell and lots of awesome Finds. Plus – Voice of the Masses!
What’s in the show:
Only 7.7% of kernel developers are hobbyists, or not paid to work on the kernel. Oh, and happy birthday Linux! Linus Torvalds and Greg Kroah Hartman launch rhetorical fire and brimstone on Bradley Kuhn over the use of litigation in protecting the GPL. Apple owes Ireland €13,000,000,000, according to the EU. Ireland says ‘No Thanks‘. Microsoft’s PowerShell now runs on Linux. The UK Labour Party has launched a new digital manifesto.

If your SSH session disconnects, you can be left with an unresponsive terminal which doesn’t respond to ctrl-C. You can close the session by pressing ‘[Enter]~’.
I found Cacti recently (well a few months ago). Network graphing using RRDTool via lovely web based interface. Tons of plug-ins available for those that want to explore.
There’s also Guacamole (https://guacamole.incubator.apache.org) – found this quite a while ago but have been test driving. It’s a “clientless remote desktop gateway” – remote desktops through html5. Works really well.
