Cisco joins efforts with Nokia Siemens Networks


TeleManagement World (Nice, France) – Cisco® and Nokia Siemens Networks entered into an agreement to develop a standards-based telecommunications network management platform that will help service providers manage the increasing complexity of their networks and speed time to market of new services. With the increasing challenges associated with delivering converged services across multi-vendor networks and the high cost of custom integration, the jointly developed Operations Support Systems (OSS) platform will help the entire service provider community better align network capabilities and costs with business demands.

So OSS, as in Operations Support Systems, is the Nokia Siemens Networks target and I guess they are so very right as until now this market has been downplayed by many.

Wubi – a Ubuntu installer for Windows

Are you a Windows user wanting to test/use Linux without having to worry about partitions, bootloaders and other incomprehensible concepts? What if you could just install Linux as if it was a common Windows application? What if you could remove it whenever you want to? Don’t want to burn a CD? Sure.. I, for one, welcome our new Ubuntu installer overlord, Wubi!

Wubi comes in a simple .exe file which installs Ubuntu Linux into a Windows folder, hence it doesn’t need any partition magic. No wandering around with MBR is needed since Wubi uses the Windows bootloader (believe me, it’s there!) adding an entry to the Linux system and so  making the install more secure for your existing data.

Get it, install it, be happy! 😀


Hi fellow geeks,

To those of you who are interested in graphic design, audio production or video creation may I present UbuntuStudio! Following Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn), this first release already brings some fresh n’ sweet juice in it so go and have a drink yourself 😉
