The strength of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is its openness and transparency, and community support. Anyone can contribute, not just elite coders with lush geekbeards and ratty sandals. So what can a non-coder do?
A good system administrator is always looking for ways to make life a bit easier. The Levanta Intrepid M, a turnkey Linux management appliance, is one way to smooth out some of the rough edges of system deployment and make things run just a bit smoother in your IT environment. I spent some time using the Intrepid M appliance, and found it to be a well-designed product. Too bad the pricing makes it unsuitable for some IT budgets. So, how does it work?

There are millions of Ubuntu reviews swarming the net , so what makes this one different ? Well , it’s written by a complete idiot , who’s worked on Windows most of his life…thats’ ME. In this post I am going to review stuff that an ordinary user might use.
After suffering through version 1.0 many years ago, I thought Xandros would be the least likely of the commercial desktop GNU/Linux distributions to succeed. Each subsequent release since 1.1 has changed my mind a little bit, and now with version 4.0 of its home desktop edition, I'm at last convinced that Xandros is positioned for success. This should be the desktop operating system that you recommend to your Windows-hating friends and family.
Nagios is a host and service monitor designed to inform you of network problems before your clients, end-users or managers do. The monitoring daemon runs intermittent checks on hosts and services you specify using external "plugins" which return status information to Nagios. When problems are encountered, the daemon can send notifications.
3DRealms has released the dedicated linux server for Human Head's just released sci-fi FPS, Prey. This package includes all the required files to host your own server, including install instructions to get you going.
There was a time when running Linux on a Windows Server would have been considered taboo by Microsoft. Times do change.
The latest Ubuntu release, Dapper Drake, was quite a few weeks ago, so why review it now? After all, there are plenty of other reviews lying around. Well, there are a number of reasons.
The Mozilla Foundation is offering to "immortalize" people's names in the code of Firefox, if they manage to persuade a friend to download its Web browser before Sept. 15.
The question of if and when Reiser4 will be merged into the mainline Linux kernel has been an on-going debate for a couple of years. Hans Reiser posted a "short term task list for Reiser4" to address the remaining technical issues.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology has revoked certification of the open-source encryption tool OpenSSL under the Federal Information Processing Standard.
Red Hat has launched a Telecommunications Partner program for NEPs (network equipment providers), OEMs, telecom ISVs (independent software vendors), and carriers/operators.
While Linux is almost in the mainstream, there are a number of pain-points for existing and potential customers that need to be addressed, says Christine Martino, the vice president for HP's open source and Linux organization.
You say poTAto, I say poTAHto, you say "OpenSUSE," I say SUSE, let's call the whole thing off!? Well, not yet.
I think that software should do what I tell it to do. If I insert a picture of my cat doing its happy dance, I want that picture to show up in the document. I certainly don't want a list formatted with styles I never created and never asked to be applied. Unfortunately, that's pretty much what I get when using lists in Word. So what's the alternative? Use OpenOffice Writer, of course.
Delimited data uses specific characters (delimiters) to separate its values. Most database and spreadsheet programs are able to read or save data in a delimited format. So how do I process delimited files under Linux shell prompt?
While Ladislav is vacationing in sunny Fiji, I figured this would be the perfect time to talk about him behind his back. I'm sure no one reading this is clueless to the fact that Ladislav Bodnar is our benevolent 'keeper of the record.' I hope you find him as fascinating as I do.
Although for many the OpenOffice.org Base application is an obvious choice for building a desktop database application, it's not the only game in town. Kexi (http://www.kexi-project.org), a relatively new member of the KOffice family, allows you to create simple databases without learning all the intricacies of database development.
One of the members on my WFTL-LUG mailing list asked an interesting question. He visited the Healthology Website and tried to play the videos on the page. Sadly, it didn't work. The big question, of course, is whether there is any way to get it to work. The answer is Yes!.
The just-released beta of Firefox 2 may disappoint those who expected a major overhaul, but it adds a variety of useful features that make it a must-have upgrade for Firefox users, including anti-phishing filtering, better RSS handling, a built-in spell checker, and more advanced tab handling.
