Sept 18, 2019 meeting topics

Open Source Summit in San Diego, hosted by the Linux Foundation.
Lutris is a gaming client for Linux. It gives you access to all your video games with the exception of the current console generation. You can, in a single interface, run any game from your childhood memories to the current multiplayer games. Integrations with stores like GOG and Steam allow you to import your existing game library and community maintained install scripts give you a completely automated setup.
Jupiter Broadcasting: two new interesting shows to check out: Self-Hosted and Linux Headlines.
Mattermost: High Trust Messaging for the Enterprise–a flexible, open source messaging platform that enables secure team collaboration.
There’s a new local speedtest.net node up to help test our connections: select Cutting Edge Communications, Inc. instead of going to Walla Walla or Seattle.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux: The foundation for your enterprise hybrid cloud. Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® is the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform. It’s an open source operating system (OS). It’s the foundation from which you can scale existing apps—and roll out emerging technologies—across bare-metal, virtual, container, and all types of cloud environments.
ZFS File system may be coming soon to Ubuntu as an optional install feature.
Virtualization with LXC and LXD: LXD (pronounced lex-dee) is the lightervisor, or lightweight container hypervisor. LXC (lex-see) is a program which creates and administers “containers” on a local system. It also provides an API to allow higher level managers, such as LXD, to administer containers. In a sense, one could compare LXC to QEMU, while comparing LXD to libvirt.

hope to see you next month 🙂
