Roman Shaposhnik covers design and implementation of a novel Edge Computing platform created at ZEDEDA Inc. and later used as a founding project for the Linux Foundation’s LF Edge initiative. He focuses on this new, special purpose, open source operating environment that aims to run securely on billions of ARM and x86 devices. He covers the unique challenges that EVE has to tackle.

Database Systems Exploiting New Hardware Platforms
Main memory databases have become increasingly important as a way to provide high-performance OLTP (on-line transaction processing) capability. By restricting data to by main memory resident, rather than storing disk resident data entirely in the main memory cache, it is possible to use new technology that results in much better performance. This new setting calls for a revolution in the access methods, concurrency control, and recovery. It reduces the need for high scalability because peak performance is so much higher. This session will explore main memory technologies, the performance that they produce, the problems encountered, and the prospects going forward.

Making Games doesn’t have to be hard, and CORE helps make it easier than ever.
With CORE you can easily set up a FPS shooter in a matter of minutes.
Personally I’m more creative sided than a logical and didn’t know how to Code much at all. But with CORE I could focus on creating art assets while using their prebuilt functions to create gameplay.
Don’t get me wrong, Code is still great to know, but with Core you can make great games faster.
Follow me along this journey as we explore the sheer amount of possibilities that CORE can give you.
Throughout this guide, you’ll learn the basics of the Core platform, to get up and running playing and creating games quickly.

THINGS THAT SHOULDN’T EXIST: Internet Explorer for UNIX
If you know anything about early Microsoft, it seems very odd to think of them having anything to do with UNIX in any form. After all, one of the main goals of Windows NT was to make Microsoft a viable competitor in the workstation and server fields. It thus begs the question of just why Microsoft took the effort to port Internet Explorer to their most fierce competitors. After teasing my IE for UNIX during my Solaris 7 video, I felt dig need deeper.

20:32 – Closing
In truth, this wasn’t my first experience with Internet Explorer for UNIX. Back in 2012, I had an opportunity to explore it remotely via X11 forwarding, and I learned enough to keep me interested. However, because IE for UNIX required either a HP-UX install, or old Solaris to work, I didn’t really have much opportunity to research it further. Digging into Solaris 7 gave me the excuse I needed dig in deep, and begin putting this mystery together.
From struggling through finding old Solaris patch sets, kernel panics, and more, I finally managed to get Internet Explorer for UNIX to load up. It quickly becomes apparent that there’s quite a lot more here than just a simple port of IE. Through testing IE for UNIX appears to incorporate a lot of specific Windows technologies. Through testing, VBScript and more works, showing that is a true port of the Trident rendering engine to Solaris, and that raises even more answers than it answers.
By doing some simple reverse engineering, and a lot of searching, I eventually learned that IE for UNIX was made by company called Mainsoft, who, rather notably,was responsible for the Windows source code leak in 2004. Mainsoft had been part of a program from Microsoft known as the “Windows Integrated Source Environment” or WISE where Microsoft licensed the source code of Windows to various companies to create third party products. This lead to the creation of Visual MainWin, a toolkit that exists to help port Windows software to Linux.
What I found shocked me. Mainsoft had ported the core Windows API and more to run ontop of UNIX. Infact IE for UNIX ships with a fairly complete set of files that won’t look out of place in Windows system32!. This finally began to let me put the pieces of the puzzle together, and by digging through their website on the Internet Archive, I finally put all the pieces together. I … also managed to find Visual SourceSafe for UNIX, whch tells me some ancient horrors should just remained buried.
Afterwards, we walk through the how and why. I’d love to hear your own theories on why IE for UNIX is a thing, and more. This is NCmmander, signing out.
