Recommended Posts

August 29th, 2019 marks 14 years of Lime Technology being in business. On August 26, 2005, Tom Mortensen (@limetech), the creator of Unraid, posted the very first introductory post about Unraid and thus began the incredible journey and creation of this amazing community!

 

To date, the Unraid community comprises over 130 countries, an untold number of languages, and thousands of friendly, enthusiastic, and welcoming users!

 

This is the discussion page for the official Unraid 14th Birthday Blog. Feel free to chime in on how you use Unraid, what you thought of the Q&A or anything else that comes to mind! 

Cheers!

Great that Tom took the time to respond. I enjoyed reading that, and it brought back a few memories.

 

<pedantry>

It's 'without further adoo', or 'ado', not 'adieu', (which is old French for 'Goodbye')

</pedantry>

Thanks for Unraid!  i gladly paid a Pro licence, and had 3 or 4 of my good friends also do the same :) i still continue to advertise Unraid as one of the best Home Media Storage system.   I think you should have a more "business" version, for company that want to manage VMs and Storage, etc.

 

Also, please udate the Kernel to 5.2.7 to support newer Ryzen 3000 temp sensors, etc. :) (

6.8 is on the horizon. 

 

Possibly kernel 5.3 since it's due to be stable soon ;)

 

It could also be the new LTS kernel.

Not familiar with the LTS kernel, what is it ?  All I want really, is a NVIDIA driver + at least 5.2.7 for having Temperature Plugin working on my X570 board ;)

Hawaiian / Flowered shirts must be the official Limetech dress code.  And @jonp is out of uniform  :)

I'm not much for Hawaiian shirts, but those pics were taken in Hawaii!

That was great! I really enjoyed reading that. I feel like I know Tom and team a little better :) I hope that these types of QA's happen more often. I'm really enjoying the blog posts you have been putting out.

LTS stands for "Long-term support" or sometimes "Long-term stable". It's a branch of code which is considered finished, polished, and only to receive bug patches and security related patches, but no more breaking changes. Being a kernel, it's the underlying operating system that unraid operates on top of.

I wonder- Is that first licensee STILL using UnRAID?  THAT would be quite the testament!

Great thought. Maybe I'll have to try and hunt them down!
