I'm no bean-counter. I'm an IT guy. But, I know that over the last few years, it's CFOs and dollars, not CIOs and gigabytes, that determine what technology companies buy.
But, here's news you can use to get your CFO on board with a Linux and open-source make over. E-Trade Financial saved $13 million a year and they realized a boost in performance by switching to Linux from Solaris.
There are times when you need to see what's running on another user's desktop. When you're both behind the same firewall, VNC is a good solution. But what happens when each user is behind different firewalls and you need a secure connection? Rob Reilly demonstrates how to make this happen.
Brute force attacks are a weekly issue on my Debian box and until now, I've manually managed my hosts.allow and hosts.deny files. The issue isn't so much the actual security threat as brute force attacks are usually unsuccessful, but seeing log files that are just loaded up with thousands of failed login attempts is unnerving at best.

Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Here's how I installed it, guided by The Linux/Unix/BSD Install Instructions.
Most Linux users are familiar with the top command, typically used to examine the system load on a local PC and others on the network. However, have you considered using top to monitor your system automatically and to warn you when a server is being overloaded?
I had a chance at a special Apple event last week to get a closer look at Apple Computer's new MacBook Pro, the renamed Intel-based successor to the PowerBook unveiled by Apple CEO Steve Jobs two weeks ago. In fact, I had some real "pick it up and use it" hands-on time.
"Normally speaking, the source code is not the ultimate documentation of anything." What open source has that is really unique, however, can be summed up in one word, a word that's bandied about so often that it's almost lost its meaning: community. Proper documentation for open source software is notoriously lacking, but the shared body of knowledge of the developers and users of that software is available to anyone for the asking.

In addition, Logitech always pushes new mouse technologies to the market along with jumping on existing bandwagons and they always manage to improve these designs from optical to laser technologies. But will it work in Linux?
