Where do Terraform and OpenTofu go from here? https://theregister.com/2024/05/24/opinion_column_terraform/ by @sjvn

When I look at my tea leaves, I see a good chance of Terraform and
OpenTofu reuniting as an project once IBM acquires HashiCorp
.

@sjvn@mastodon.social avatar

@funnelfiasco Good question. Personally I think they'd been better off just supporting OpenTofu and be done with it. It would certainly have saved them billions! The long-term plan is the usual IBM one: Terraform/OpenTofu as a service and integrated into all its and Red Hat various cloud offerings. Oh, and Ansible integration will be a big one.

It’s been a while since Hans Reiser was in the news. That’s because it’s been 16 years since he was sentenced to spend 15 years to life as a guest of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for murdering his wife. Before that he was an important part of the Linux and open-source scene, as the creator of the ReiserFS filesystem: In a Feel Good Moment, Linux 6.10 Makes One Last Change to ReiserFS - FOSS Force https://fossforce.com/2024/05/in-a-feel-good-moment-linux-6-10-makes-one-last-change-to-reiserfs/

Cable déjà vu? Look who's bundling #streaming services (and what it's going to cost you) https://www.zdnet.com/home-and-office/home-entertainment/cable-packaging-comes-to-streaming/ by @sjvn

These new bundles will save you money in the short run. In the long run, however, we're looking at the rebirth of cable TV with its high prices.

More than money, open-source pros want these 2 things from their next jobs https://www.zdnet.com/home-and-office/work-life/more-than-money-open-source-pros-want-these-2-things-from-their-next-jobs/ by @sjvn

Want to hire top savvy people? Money's good, but what they really want is work-life balance and remote work.

You don’t really think you can depend on answers pulled from the likes of self-appointed Reddit experts, do you? https://www.computerworld.com/article/2114681/what-happens-when-genai-vendors-kill-off-their-best-sources.html by @sjvn

vendor answers come from stealing. If they don't start paying creatives, they'll collapse with garbage data.

@Nfoonf @cstross There are already efforts afoot to do that, such as Nightshades for images, and Stack OverFlow users are deleting their entries to keep OpenAI from getting its hands on them.
