Debian Administration: Trying to insert 70.000 rules in iptables on a recent machine takes about an hour and going through these rules for each packet is even more of a burden.

TrueCrypt is a free software that encrypts data on-the-fly. Right now the newest version released is version 4.3. You can create an encrypted hard drive, a separate partition or a directory with TrueCrypt.

ITtoolbox Blogs: In just about any occupation there are several different types of people. In fact the psychiatrists have them all broken down into nice little boxes. I am no psychiatrist but I play one on the internet and I have noticed that there appears to be some traits that separate those that chose a particular operating system. Perhaps the operating system you are using now doesn't match your personality?
builder.au: Updating all the software on your system can be a pain, but with Linux it doesn't have to be that way. We'll show you how to combine the apt package management system with a task scheduler to automatically update your system.
DesktopLinux: Sometimes, a service pack comes along that really makes a big difference. Take NT. Before SP3, it was garbage. And, now, with its SP1 for SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop), Novell has given an already excellent business desktop a real kick in the pants.
MaximumPC: Noobs getting their first taste of the Linux OS tend to feel a little lost. Even though the Gnome and KDE GUIs are simple and easy to navigate, it's hard to ignore the realization that you don't really know what lurks beneath the surface of this powerful operating system. LFS is an ongoing project designed to turn ordinary users into superusers. Literally.

polishlinux: Last week I’d been given a chance to make minor language correction to the article Understanding the Common User: All should be simple as it can. This article deals with how to treat people that know nothing about Linux, how to teach them what Linux is about and how not to do it to wrong people.
the how-to-geek: Having switched from Ubuntu to Kubuntu recently, the first thing that irritated me beyond all reason was that single-clicking on a file or folder immediately opens the file instead of selecting it. Since I use Windows and Ubuntu on a daily basis, it's just frustrating that it works differently in KDE.

desktoplinux: We knew that last year Red Hat CEO Matthew Szulik held talks with Microsoft concerning a patent deal. Once Microsoft and Novell signed an agreement with Novell, those talks were history. In fact, Red Hat made a point of spitting on the Microsoft/Novell deal. That was then. This is now.
