Basho and Seagate partner to deliver scale-out cloud storage breakthrough
Ha, cool. Skip the OS, write the Riak store natively to the drive. This sounds frankly terrifying ;)
The Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform eliminates the storage server tier of traditional data center architectures by enabling applications to speak directly to the storage system, thereby reducing expenses associated with the acquisition, deployment, and support of hyperscale storage infrastructures. The platform leverages Seagate’s expertise in hardware and software storage systems integrating an open source API and Ethernet connectivity with Seagate hard drive technology.

Raspberry Pi gets open-source video drivers
'As of right now, all of the VideoCore driver code which runs on the ARM is available under a FOSS license (3-Clause BSD to be precise). If you’re not familiar with the status of open source drivers on ARM SoCs this announcement may not seem like such a big deal, but it does actually mean that the BCM2835 used in the Raspberry Pi is the first ARM-based multimedia SoC with fully-functional, vendor-provided (as opposed to partial, reverse engineered) fully open-source drivers, and that Broadcom is the first vendor to open their mobile GPU drivers up in this way.'

This is a great result -- congrats to the Raspberry Pi team for getting this to happen.

'a driver for Xbox and Xbox360 gamepads. It works by reading the raw data from the controller with the userspace library libusb and then passes the interpreted data to the kernel via uinput. This allows xboxdrv to provide regular joystick and event devices, which makes it compatible with all Linux software.'
