Two Windows 10 feature updates a year is too many | ZDNet
Ubuntu Linux offers a release cycle that's superficially similar to that of Windows 10, with two releases per year, in the spring and fall. Crucially, most of those are interim releases (shown in gray in the timeline below) and are supported only until the next interim release comes out. The long-term support versions (shown in orange in the support timeline) are released every two years.

Small providers in rural areas, such as wireless ISPs (WISPs), loved this. People who wanted targeted small networks, like the Port Authority for Los Angeles, loved it, because it let them get smaller licenses. People who wanted internet of things (IoT) networks loved it, because of the possibilities for innovation. Who didn’t love it?

Fixed wireless allows it to reach remote, rural areas that are up to 50 miles away from its fiber network, and it’s a solution that can be implemented relatively quickly and without the expense of building fiber networks. It’s also deployable in the winter months when the weather makes fiber construction impossible.

Postmortem: VSTS 4 September 2018 – Service Blog – Azure DevOps
However, the reality of cross-region synchronous replication is messy. For example, the region paired with South Central US is US North Central. Even at the speed of light, it takes time for the data to reach the other data center and for the original data center to receive the response. The round-trip latency is added to every write. This adds approximately 70ms for each round trip between South Central US and US North Central. For some of our key services, that’s too long. Machines slow down and networks have problems for any number of reasons. Since every write only succeeds when two different sets of services in two different regions can successfully commit the data and respond, there is twice the opportunity for slowdowns and failures. As a result, either availability suffers (halted while waiting for the secondary write to commit) or the system must fall back to asynchronous replication.

My company is was full on into GCP and after a year of terrible support management suddenly decides to go all in into Azure. We use every managed service from GCP including BigQuery which is nearly impossible to find a replacement of in Azure. Appengine needs to be converted to Azure Kubernetis Service. So its not a technical decision completely, just that company signed a bigger deal with Microsoft and wants to pay a single bill. Based on feedback from other teams company feels Azure support is way more professional when it comes to production outage. Now all of 3 years work sing Google services needs to be re-written in "cloud agnostic" way.

Patch Lady on the C week @ AskWoody
Mary Jo today talks about a “Managed” desktop and it’s also blogged about on the Microsoft 365 blog whereby Microsoft will be deploying and managing business desktops. My response? Bring it on, because I think Microsoft themselves needs to understand better the state of patching today. Mary Jo’s post talks about that initially the devices supported will be Microsoft’s own Surface devices and I’ve tracked some nasty issues relating to firmware updates and patches on that platform. So much so that people have had to take units and receive replacement units in order to get a functioning system. This managed desktop won’t be offered to consumers, nor does it look like it’s economical to small businesses given that it has The Microsoft 365 Enterprise sku which is about a $50 a month software license for merely the software. let alone the cost of the hardware.

Bottom line, I think ultimately there are only good things that can come out of this.

“We will not have full the benefit of 5G if we do not have the right orchestration layer. The telco community cannot afford to be fragmented and have orchestrators that are different between operators. This not going to be viable. This is a call for action. I urgently and firmly believe that ONAP is the right orchestrator for the future, and urge the operator community to join their forces in order to have ONAP as the target orchestration.”

Lord’s comment was an allusion to the fact that this is not the party picking a side in that old fight about which system is more secure than the other. He explained in an interview with Forbes that one big reason for this choice is Apple being faster to offer patches for security vulnerabilities compared to what Google has to contend with, thanks to the scores of different Android handset manufacturers which slows some update downs.

Q&A—Red Hat's Brian Gracely on open source and doubling down on Kubernetes | FierceTelecom
Open source has never been known for being the people that sit and finish up projects. They've always sort of gotten it to a good solid point that does 80% of what you want it to do, or it works well enough but there's not great interfaces and things on it.

What tends to happen is, either commercial companies like Red Hat or Canonical, or anybody else, ends up making it usable for them afterwards.

And while T-Mobile and Verizon are using similar 28GHz bands, T-Mobile is also putting 5G on the 600MHz band, which Verizon is not.

The (broken) economics of OSS – Matt Klein – Medium
The other benefit of “loose” open core technologies are that they are more difficult for the large cloud vendors to subsume. Historically, the clouds are very good at creating basic managed SaaS offerings of popular OSS. However, they have been much less effective at building the “special sauce” on top. If executed well, a robust “loose” open core business can be built that is compatible, not competitive, with the cloud offerings.

Its decline was attributed to “heightened competition” for entry-level offerings, as the operator actively pursued higher value customers.
