Next version of Ubuntu to support DmRaid

The one feature I’ve waited for ever since I learned about Ubuntu is support for BIOS raid, aka software RAID. Back in the days when Linux only came in flavors like RedHat, Mandrake, and SUSE hardware setups were actually very straight forward and simple in comparison to the options we have today. Most motherboards these days have support for RAID arrays at the BIOS level. Unfortunately, Ubuntu hasn’t supported it right out the box. It is in fact possible to install it in such setup, but it’s a rather complicated process and not exactly a process suitable for Linux beginners, like me. However, it seems they’ve made it a priority to support DmRaid out of the box in the next iteration of Ubuntu, version 8.10 code named Intrepid.

Notice the priority given to this feature. This is one of the only 13 items given high priority so far and I couldn’t be happier. I’m sure that, like me, there are a lot of people out there eager to install an alternative to Windows on their PCs and this feature reflects the fact that BIOS RAIDs are becomming too common to ignore. Of course, I could’ve tried the latest version of openSUSE which looks awesome, apparently performs faster, AND supports DmRaid but I think I’ll wait it out.

Diablo III announced

Today is a good day. I mean, need I say more about this announcement? If you played Diablo II, you should know how big this game is going to be. Regardless of the fact that it’s a PC game, I dare to say it’ll be one of the best selling games of all time. Oh and if you have a mac be happy to know Blizzard is releasing the game for you at the same time as it’s PC counterpart, which is too bad because it’ll only give fanboys more fuel to start a new set of flame wars on forums and tech blogs. No word yet about a Linux version.

Check out the official Diablo III web site for the complete nerdgasm.
