Weblogs

I'm a xen.org blogger now :)

I've just received my account for the Xen.org blog, and did my first posting, announcing Ganeti.

But I'm still running Xen on quite some machines, and I still like the way some things work with this virtualization technology, so I will have some interesting remarks to do about it.

Download.com is advertising GPL software downloads!

It sounded so interesting, I even clicked on a link on my own website (which google ads actually forbids - but hey, here I continue the ad for free!):

Download.com is financing google ads, as well as a nicely and professional designed download page
