HowTos

This beginner article summarizes my experiences using a dial-up internet connection with SuSe and Fedora.

Basic Guide to Dial-up Internet with Linux.

This brief chapter should help beginning Linux users get a DSL connection up and running.

Why business should bet on open source

Among the benefits of OSS is that it is hardly ever a standalone product. Most OSS is built on other open-source projects. Because of the way it is licensed, these enhancements are then passed back to the open-source community, so the software constantly evolves. So, if such open-source technology is readily available, and has proved its scalability in webscale businesses, why reinvent the wheel? Open source is certainly more accepted in the enterprise, said Tony Lock, distinguished analyst at Freeform Dynamics. “It is suitable for all businesses, not just for webscale businesses.” Read more
