Summer of 2003 again

Weird.. I feel like the summer of 2003 again .. working on a conference paper with a deadline almost impossible to reach...

Worked out fine back then ..let's hope it works out fine now also..

It's over

Moshe announced that tomorrow the
openMosix project will end.

We had a great time.. I learned a lot .. and I got so see a part of the world while working on openMosix.

There are a couple of people on #openmosix that are still trying to build a 2.6 release ,
not sure if they ever succeed.. If they ever reach something that's worth documenting.. I`ll see if my schedule allows to pick up the job again ..

Till then .. I`ll be working on other projects..

while true; do repeat history ; done

openMosix is dead.. but still this is the (update)4th time in 2 days that people start discussing the idea dynamically loadbalancing virtual machine instances around on a big HPC platform.

So , is openMosix really dead ?
