    This is pretty cool. I recognize Bryan Cantrill as one of the key personell of joyent (who made SmartOS which was neat, they ported KVM to solaris/smartos) and Jessie Frazelle from when she was blogging about Docker, where she actually worked. Two very impressive engineers and nerds.

    I hope both will be very successful with they new self-employment!

    Thanks for the link, this could become awesome.

      Does anyone here have experience with SmartOS? It looks awesome, but I’m curious if anyone here has tried it before.

        they ported KVM to solaris/smartos

        And more recently, ported bhyve to replace the KVM port :)

        Apparently this surrounds the creation of a new company:

        As a part of starting Oxide Computer Company, Bryan Cantrill and Jess Frazelle decided to also create the podcast that they always wanted.

        The name of which suggests a Rust connection, which Bryan Cantrill confirmed: https://twitter.com/bcantrill/status/1201294699387965440?s=20

          Product announcement spam, flagged.

          It doesn’t even link to a real episode.

            Anyone know where the podcast can be downloaded? Is it just me or it is getting rarer and rarer to actually have a download link.

                More precisely, in the RSS feed right click and save one of the episode.

                  Right, you didn’t mention that you’re after the RSS feed ;^) … which oddly enough, was exactly what I was looking for this morning! :^D

                  Thought I’m being useful here providing the top level link where both the podcast page, and the RSS feed are just a click-away :^P

                  1. 1

                    I wasn’t looking for the RSS feed but it’s the only place I’ve found a way to download an episode. I haven’t seen a way to download an episode directly from oxide.computer but maybe I missed it.

                    Anyway, thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
