Current state of vpsBoard 02/04/2017Dear vpsBoard members and guests:
Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.
Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.
I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.
I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.
OVH offers users the choice of using its modified custom Linux kernels or the regular distro's kernel. Ubuntu's license contains a clause that requires anyone who distributes a modified version of Ubuntu to get approval from Ubuntu and pay a license fee to use the Ubuntu mark. Canonical/Ubuntu wants OVH to pay a licensing fee of 1-2 euros monthly for each installation which over the course of a year would amount to about 1 million euros. According to the article Canonical (owner of Ubuntu) is also asking Dreamhost, which also uses a modified version of Ubuntu, to pay a licensing fee.

I am looking for a programmer / scripter already familiar with PHP and WHMCS.
Project type work, one off custom scripts. Freelance work for someone out there, per piece.
If interested, PM me your CV / resume or in lieu of such tell me about your experience. Informal is fine, alternative learners encouraged.
I am excited by the potential of this project. It's early yet, so cutting edge and not polished if your OS and desktop isn't what they are building for.
Shashlik allows you to run Android apps on Ubuntu, so long as you are running KDE. Others, good luck, try it and maybe we can help kick solutions back to the authors.
This is for Kubuntu:

Someone give it a spin. My Linux Mint environment installs it, but no dice getting anything to work. Going to spin up VirtualBox Kubuntu install later and see if it will work under that.
