OSNews, Generic OSes I was lucky enough to receive an invitation to the HP Technology Forum 2010 via OSNews and just spent most of this last week in Las Vegas with five thousand other nerds of varying caliber. The tech forum is focused more on enterprise technology than that of the consumer, and-- let's face it-- even if any of us could afford a $30,000 rack of servers, most of us have little idea of what we'd do with so many resources except brag. Despite the focus on an area not quite as natural to OSNews and many of its readers, there was a plenitude of good and interesting information shared-- aside from that, the forum was simply fun. There were a few subjects that were especially eye-catching, though many of them not necessarily comprehensive enough to base an entire article on; thus this overview.

I don’t know anything about the enterprise side of things, but I always prefer an elegant solution. Our OSes have mostly failed us and we’ve come up with over-engineered solutions almost beautiful in their complexity.

I wonder what would have happened if Plan9 got where Linux is. All your resources across all servers and VMs could be freely accessed and moved around the pool just with symlinks.
