Say hi to Microsoft's own Linux: CBL-Mariner

Microsoft has its own Linux distribution and, yes, you can download, install and run it. In fact, you may want to do just that.

Ok, so it's not named MS-Linux or Lindows, but Microsoft now has its very own, honest-to-goodness general-purpose Linux distribution: Common Base Linux, (CBL)-Mariner. And, just like any Linux distro, you can download it and run it yourself. Amazing isn't it? Why the next thing you know Microsoft will let you run Windows applications on Linux! Oh, wait it has!

[...] Microsoft didn't make a big fuss about releasing CBL-Mariner. It quietly released the code on GitHub and anyone can use it. Indeed, Juan Manuel Rey, a Microsoft Senior Program Manager for Azure VMware, recently published a guide on how to build an ISO CBL-Mariner image. Before this, if you were a Linux expert, with a spot of work you could run it, but now, thanks to Rey, anyone with a bit of Linux skill can do it.

CBL-Mariner is not a Linux desktop. Like Azure Sphere, Microsoft's first specialized Linux distro, which is used for securing edge computing services, it's a server-side Linux.

This Microsoft-branded Linux is an internal Linux distribution. It's meant for Microsoft's cloud infrastructure and edge products and services. Its main job is to provide a consistent Linux platform for these devices and services. Just like Fedora is to Red Hat, it keeps Microsoft on Linux's cutting edge.

Is this the year of the Linux desktop?

      Linux has sucked for many years, after the purple-hared caveman-jawed Jewish trannies and corporate Chinks and Mossadniks took over.

      Microsoft is the best thing to happen to Linux in 10 years, because like old Facebook they're smart enough to realize that globohomo could go out of style and fall apart in America with a single presidential election. So they give globohomo some lip service, now, but not nearly as much as the faggot Jew trannies of Kernel development do.

        >little more than a corporate astroturfing
        what happened is it got worse, and more of an echo chamber. then you got people talking for an hour about being nice to each other when someone posts a snarky comment, which gets them shadowbanned after a couple of times.

        so it got much worse. but what you consider corp astroturfing, is devs and managers for big companies posting about important projects that we're interested in talking about. one of these "astroturfing" posts was the start of airbnb. others were stripe, instacart, doordash, and reddit.

        I'm guessing you go on github and are amazed by the amount of project listings, which you view as ads for projects?

        Reddit lite? Strange, on reddit it's a bunch of edgy teens telling experts they're wrong after a google search. On hn, when this linux topic was posted here, I talked to a microsoft guy about it. When I had an AWS issue and couldn't get support to respond, I asked there and talked to a director at amazon who fixed my issue in about 2 hours.

        hn is where important people who actually do things in live hang out. if you think that's reddit, good thing you left. you don't belong there.

        ..and stay out.

                        They were indeed paid laborers. Who were slaves, had a master, and could not get themselves free and just leave. Instead of providing food and housing for the slaves, the Egyptian masters paid them a small salary so they could take of their own basic needs. But they weren't free to leave. If this is a concept you don't understand, you should look it up.

                      "A stopped clock is right twice a day". The (quite abundant) evidence suggests the pyramids were constructed by free men, though to be fair in the Torah building of the pyramids wasn't specifically mentioned either... only in subsequent writings. Also, the modern archeological consensus is that the Israelites were natives of Canaan and were never in Egypt. From the evidence it appears the "slave revolt" was actually an overthrow of an urban elite by a rural population in Canaan, which became combined in myth as both the escape from (Egyptian) slavery and the overthrow of "the Canaanites" ie. the city dwelling elite. One can easily imagine the real history might have been politically inconvenient from the perspective of the new urban elites.

                    "hese drawings on the walls of a temple show the Hebrews, the people of Moses, long before he was commanded by God to deliver them from slavery. The drawings make it quite clear who was in charge. Here, a big, strong Egyptian demonstrates his power over grovelling slaves."

                    This depends on what you define as slaves. They were slaves, but they were paid. Right now, it is commonly agreed that Qatar uses slave labor, yet they do pay them. The people who built the pyramids were paid, but they were slaves - as in not free to leave. "Many slaves who worked for temple estates lived under punitive conditions"

                    "Masters of Ancient Egypt were under obligations when owning slaves." There was a legal process where they could apply to leave their master, however no cases were found that this ever took place. So, paid slave labor. This is called selling yourself into bonded slave labor. "Although slaves were not “free” or rightfully independent, slaves in the New Kingdom were able to leave their master if they had a “justifiable grievance”. Historians have read documents about situations where this could be a possibility but it is still uncertain if independence from slavery was attainable."

Yes, but most semites back then weren't Jews and semites still represented a minority of slaves. I notice one of your sources is relying on Exodus, which scholars do not believe to be accurate, if it even happened at all.

                          The title is literally: Learn about the Hebrews, whom Moses led out of slavery in Egypt. Or how about: But who were these people in thrall to the Egyptians? The Bible describes them as nomads who ended up wandering onto Egyptian territory, where they were made the slaves of the Egyptian state. Or Moses was one of these workers. He, and a chance event, changed history. Or maybe the entire closing paragraph of The Bible describes how Moses sees one of his comrades being beaten by an Egyptian guard. In a burst of fury, Moses kills the guard, later burying the body in the sandy soil. Moses has to flee for his life. Putting 400 kilometers between himself and the scene of his crime, he ends up in the Sinai mountains. He lived here for years, taking a wife. Ten years later, the Bible tells us, he returns. He has been commanded to confront the Pharaoh and release his people from their bondage.

          > the reason I'm an asshole to people here

          You being an asshole here is a factor in bringing this site's level of discourse down.

          > there's incels, autists, purposely dense clowns, and you - who fit into all those categories

          Besides the few trolls with the unhealthy fascination with their perverted beliefs about Judaism and its followers, your comments are probably next for adding negativity to the site.

          I originally came to this site because I saw folks with very different world views e.g., gewg and mightybuzzard discussing issues in a mostly civil manner. I don't expect you to change your ways because of my comment, but it would be nice if you reflected even a little on your "contributions" to this site, and whether your tone is beneficial to the site's heath or not.

        and I get that, and there are constantly articles being written about the same thing over and over. In fact, you can find an article from somewhere monthly about this topic, since last november. The issue is when over the last few months, a bunch of stories pop up on hn, we have a discussion there, then like 10 stories per week pop up here that were just on hn a few days ago, which out of the thousands of stories is too much of a coincidence. Now if it was just-announced news, I'd get that. But when it's old news, that's been out since November, that's a correlation that's not random.

      Now the real question is, why did this old news just pop up on soylent just now?

      The answer to this question is in the summary:

      Indeed, Juan Manuel Rey, a Microsoft Senior Program Manager for Azure VMware, recently published a guide on how to build an ISO CBL-Mariner image. Before this, if you were a Linux expert, with a spot of work you could run it, but now, thanks to Rey, anyone with a bit of Linux skill can do it.

      That news was published a little less than 2 weeks ago.

    with a shitty name like that one is hardpressed not to think that this is a code word in the clear to certain people to "not mess with us and our unlimited resources" (which methinks should not impress anyone since they're blantendly stealing a superior product instead of putting their own blood and sweet (and those mentioned resources) to work).
    remember everyone, o-rings for breathing apperatuses need foodgrade(!) silicon lubricants.

    Open source is a cancer.
    Linux is just a toy operating system.

    Just wait: with Office 365, MS can now have their own Windows that is just a version of linux, and we can watch how they screw the pooch with that, but everyone will be all "OMG, the new Windows is teh best!, even if it does crash once in a while and it keeps losing my printer and i can't get online to access my Office files, but it's teh best!" and we'll all shake our heads and sigh.

    I say that we need someone to introduce some backdoors and viruses into Winux and make MS GO AWAY!

    I bet it will be on Distrowatch ranked at #1 forever, with the power M$ has to "influence."

    It's like the odd distro, "MXLinux", which is always at #1, but come on, you know that's bullshit.

    But then......

    Distrowatch rankings are trivially easy to "spoof" and are therefore indicative of absolutely nothing (except maybe the zeal of distro fanbois).

      Don't laugh. Come changes it's formula about 4 times a year, based on the cost of raw ingredients. The various formulas are trade secrets, so not patented. You're free to come up with something that tastes the exact same.

      When New Coke came out, Pepsi bosses sat in the boardroom and together tried it - and the verdict was unanimous - it sucked. So they had no worries about it taking market share.

      They launched an internal project to create a duplicate , code named Savannah Cola, and had it done in a month. Itf Coca-cola hadn't backtracked, Pepsi would have released their New Coke Killer.

    I'd like to see some benchmarks of CBL vs. Clear Linux.

    What benefits it offers over Clear Linux on cloud installations?
