Interesting partnerships..
I like how Red Hat is lending its open source cred to other companies to get them on board and in the minds of developers who prefer OSS platforms. I wonder, though, how much influence Red Hat will have on manufacturers as a feedback mechanism for improvements in the future?

Re: Interesting partnerships..
I agree with the open methodology. With proprietary systems, it's questionable how many people can really work on them. There seems to be an army of developers who embrace open source and that gives a lot more redundancy that I think most people realize.

Ahem.. There's also the whole SSL disaster with the Heartbleed bug.. So open source isn't magically immune to security problems. It makes things more available, but that doesn't mean things will be fixed any sooner.

Re: Interesting partnerships..
Correct me if I'm wrong here, but weren't two major components of the Heartbleed problem that

1) it went undetected for an unusually long time due to the "traceless" nature of the exploit, and

2) it happened in a tremendously popular encryption system,

which is to say, the equivalent of having the back door of a bank standing open all night. Did open source really play a major role in making it such a disaster? Couldn't the same problem have occurred in a sufficiently large market share proprietary system?

My point was that open source isn't "special" in terms of having any inherently better security procedures. Bugs can happen in any system if no one is watching closely. Humans still write the code. Until there's AI that's better than us at writing code.. or finding bugs...

Red Hat's Jordan-Smith: Many Eyeballs on the Cloud
I think this can be good but with the red hat it can be difficult with the cloud not being properly controlled with the out technology or without the right specs. I also think that this is a good article/interview because you can learn alot from it so it will bring alot of protienial to the table when the question comes up.
