  • It’s hard to find a Linux distro for SPARC processors.
  • Discussed note-taking solutions.
  • Everyone learned how to pronounce “Yggdrasil”.
  • Some people in the group think Amazon is great for cloud computing. Other people recommend Azure, Lunanode, Linode, and Digital Ocean.
  • Kubernates is cloud-computing-vender agnostic because it’s container-based. Someone mentioned containers can’t be used for everything.
  • Microsoft Azure’s blob storage isn’t as good as s3.
  • Be careful of the special sauce Amazon is selling because though it tastes good, it will get you addicted and then you can’t do anything when they raise their prices.
  • Even in our group, not a lot of people use alternative social networks like Diaspora.
  • Freedom Box is a beautiful dream, but right now it doesn’t seems like it’s going to catch on.
