    • It works on ANY machine with Virtual-box installed! You can get Virtual-box for free just google for their homepage. That program simulates computer. Just do not forget to disable EFI in virtual machine options and add in archive included CD iso file to machine as cd.
    • Thx a LOT! I’m running it on a host Ubuntu 10.04 LTS + Oracle VirtualBox 4.1.12 and it works JUST FINE. Even 3D, 2D, all working fine… I have a Lenovo T410 (core i5) at work and I had to enable VT and VT-d in BIOS. Also, set the VM config to be a Mac OS Server 64 bits and set video memory all the way up to 128MB. Anyone knows how to use a shared folder? Also, is there a way to set custom resolutions (my native monitor resolution is 1440×900 (16:10). To conclude, can you make sure there isn’t any keylogger, spy soft, etc? (Just in case…)

      Bitnami virtual machine images contain a minimal Linux operating system and a fully configured Bitnami application stack. Running virtual machine images requires a hypervisor such as VMware or VirtualBox, so it is recommended for system administrators and advanced users. Learn more

    • The defining thing about airports is that no one really wants to be there.
    • It is a world Free of Duty, but also inhabited and ruled by the sullen and uncompromising familiarity of global luxury brands.
    • They were complex constructions, but at heart very simple: a set of data sources, some business logic, and a web front end.
    • and also there are these giant goonish jugs of Johnnie Walker Blue Label that cost $600 and are too big to be anything but exemplary how-you-like-me-now purchases. (They might as well have Maybach Music logos on them.)
    • They were systems that lasted years, with complex Java or .NET code running on finely tuned application servers. This was state of the art for the first decade of the 21st century. We’d spend tens of thousands of dollars on hardware from Sun, from Dell, from Cisco, from a dozen specialist vendors — and as much on software licenses.
    • The idea of the great international Duty Free experience, it seems to me, is to communicate a simultaneously comforting and unattainable/aspirational depiction of globo-luxury
    • Now, of course, things are a lot easier. Why build a test environment when you can use virtual machines to host your development platform, and why host those VMs on your own servers when you can pay pennies an hour to host them on an infrastructure-as-a-service cloud platform, like AWS or Azure.
    • Using the cloud gives you plenty of advantages over a physical development environment. It’s easy to reconfigure, and easier still to reset if a test deployment fails. Getting started with cloud for test and development makes a lot of sense, even if you’re building an application that’s going to be deployed in a data center. After all, if you’re using properly anonymized test data, there are no data protection issues. And if it works in the cloud for dev and for test, then it might just work there as a live service.
    • Where you might have used a heavyweight web server to deliver pages and services, now you’re as likely to rely on lightweight technologies like node.js and model-view-controller frameworks. Even so, some things are still familiar. We’re still using JavaScript, and we’re still using Java and .NET on the back-end. There’s even still space for that old warhorse, PHP.
    • They signify wealth and airless consensus; they’re a reminder that, wherever you’re going, it will probably be important to have as much money as possible.
    • Databases have changed too. There’s still a place for the hefty Oracle or SQL Server, but it’s got to be considered alongside the NoSQL alternatives, especially when we’re trying to keep costs down and performance up. New tools like Cassandra and MongoDB mean there’s a lot of scope for fine tuning storage options to meet the needs of an application — even using the tools built into cloud platforms, or into software-as-a-service solutions.
    • This remote place was suddenly very much of interest, and just unbelievably gob-smackingly ridiculously wealthy.
    • Instead of building a custom CRM system (as we did for one client), you can use the APIs offered by Salesforce or Netsuite and build your application around theirs
    • Where we used to design the UI as an integral part of an application, it’s now better to take an API-first approach to development, treating applications as services in a workflow.
    • With APIs at the heart of a modern enterprise application, we can then let user-led teams develop their own applications — and if it’s a consumer-facing application, deliver packaged apps as well as web applications.
    • Politics, such as they exist, are of the bureaucratic and Palace Intrigue variety.
    • Qatar has the highest per capita GDP in the world and 14 percent of (citizen) households are millionaires — and a great deal of ambition. And so there is a great deal of churning.
    • To build a nation quickly, and from scratch, requires a certain amount of planning, but mostly it is a matter of doing and making. Planning is important, but it tends to seem less important as things speed up.
    • Devops needs different tools. Instead of pre-configuring servers and then leaving them for someone else to manage, it’s important to take advantage of the new generation of configuration management tools like Puppet and Chef to automate the process of setting up servers — whether in your own data center or in the cloud.
    • Also those contractors do not necessarily have to do all the things they have to do elsewhere; there are laws, even somewhat strict laws, but they are not fully enforced or enforceable. And so the contractors don’t do what they have to do.
    • The idea is just to do it, to make someplace great — peaceful, beautiful, luxurious and yes expensive, and so finally a brand in itself to the extent that people will hear “Doha” and understand it the same awed and abstracted and faintly reverential way they understand DIOR or PRADA or JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL. At which point… well, what, then? That’s a goal, but is it an ending?
