I’ve been using DevStack for quite a while now. DevStack is a documented shell script from RackSpace Cloud Builders to build complete OpenStack development environments. Would recommend it for any developer trying to get OpenStack up and running with minimum fuss. The complete installation instructions are available at http://devstack.org

Nice presentation from Mirantis on what’s new in OpenStack Folsom.
I support the Electronic Frontier Foundation in their stand against Internet Censorship.
I Joined The Free Software Foundation today as an associate member #9193.
Nice to be associated with an organization that has long worked for the principle of software freedom. A strong Free Software Foundation will undoubtedly determine to a very large extend what freedoms the next generation of computer users will enjoy.
