Jobs go at Novell

Filed under
SUSE

Novell is cutting jobs in various departments and in various countries. The Linux vendor, which has spent recent weeks cutting its UK distributors, will trim between 100 and 130 jobs from its total headcount of 3,900.

The cuts come across geographies and departments and staff are getting severance packages based on length of service, a spokesman for the firm told CNet.

Novell is also suspending contributions to employees' 401K pension pots.

  • Get started with Midnight Commander, a Linux file manager
    Midnight Commander (MC) is a text-based Command Line Interface (CLI) program. It is particularly useful when a GUI is not available but can also be used as a primary file manager in a terminal session even when you are using a GUI. I use Midnight Commander frequently because I often have need to interact with local and remote Linux computers using the CLI. It can be used with almost any of the common shells and remote terminals through SSH.

  • Essential tools for hardening and securing Unix based Environments
    System administrators are aware as how important their systems security is, not just the runtime of their servers. Intruders, spammers, DDOS attack, crackers, are all out there trying to get into people’s computers, servers and everywhere they can lay hands on and interrupt the normal runtime of services. Being able to identify tools and techniques to harden your systems is a key play on securing your systems. Moreover, choosing the right tools is a matter of experience. You should try most of them, or perhaps the ones that are popular. I chose free and open source software because, if I want to, I can check the applications source code and see for myself how did programmers wrote the software, how did they manage to keep the software easy to understand etc.
  • Antivirus products for Linux compared
    Though Linux is often seen as being immune to malware it's still important to have protection, partly because Linux malware does exist, even if it’s rare, and partly to prevent the passing on of viruses to more vulnerable operating systems like Windows and Android.
