O'Reilly Releases "Linux in a Windows World"

Filed under
Linux

"Before the Linux operating system can achieve world domination, there are a few lesser challenges it will need to face, the chief among which is the huge installed base of Microsoft Windows users. Practically speaking, the overall success of Linux will not be in its eradication of Windows, but in its ability to coexist with it and other systems. "Indeed, the challenge of coexisting with Windows can be viewed as an opportunity," says Roderick W. Smith, author of "Linux in a Windows World" (O'Reilly, US $44.95). "Linux can be integrated into a Windows network, providing a reliable and low-cost platform on which to run vital services for Windows systems, or even serving as a workstation on an otherwise Windows-dominated network.""

"Focusing on integrating Linux into a Windows-dominated network, "Linux in a Windows World" concentrates on areas in which Linux can easily replace or complement the function of an existing Windows server."

""Linux in a Windows World" isn't specific to any one distribution of Linux. Regardless of which distribution of Linux readers use, they'll find valuable information to help them get Linux and Windows to work well together."

ASF publishes long-overdue Code Of Conduct

We pride ourselves at The Apache Software Foundation on our principles of "community over code" and "don't be a jerk". But, alas, we've been slow to codify some of these things in public. Part of this, I'm sure, is that it’s easy to think we all just know how we're supposed to treat people, and so you shouldn't have to say, right? Read more
