What Drives Linux Guru Wim Coekaerts? Have Fun, Build Things People Will Use [61392]
Forbes, March 6th, 2017

By Avi Miller, February 10th, 2017

Avi blogs, "We are pleased to announce the release of Software Collections 2.3 to the Unbreakable Linux Network and the Oracle Yum Server.

The Software Collections library allows you to install and use several different versions of the same software at the same time on a system. Software collections are primarily intended for development environments. These environments often require more recent versions of software components such as Perl, PHP, or Python to access to the latest features.
