I wonder why more people haven't heard of a sexy little Finnish operating system called Linux, a free, highly compatible, highly functional system for which there exist only 40 known viruses.
This tutorial shows how you can set up a network-attached storage server with FreeNAS. FreeNAS is based on the FreeBSD operating system and supports CIFS (samba), FTP, NFS, RSYNC, SSH, local user authentication, and software RAID (0, 1, 5).

It seems no matter how much you think you know, the information architects and desktop Feng-Shui consultants want you to believe that you know nothing. Then they can explain all their gibberish and snake-oil solutions to you. And if you don't watch it, they'll steal your own ideas - and then sell them back to you!
Remember during the Dot Com boom when sites used to display which browser you should use in order to best utilize their website? Quaint, annoying and even a little narrow minded. Those of us who have been yearning for a blast from the past will be thrilled to learn that Wal-Mart is apparently doing this in the year 2007. Wait, it gets better...
What do you get if you cross an open source development consortium with an organisation that promotes free standards? Answer: You get a Linux advocacy group. Or so it seems.
Almost a month ago InnoTek, the co-developer of VirtualPC, released their Virtual Machine as Open Source.

There were few new things to announce or showcase at the event, but if you wanted to measure the pulse of the open source software community, this was undeniably the place to be this past weekend.
When asked about security on a multi-user Linux system, a wise man once said "everyone is root if you allow them to login as a user." There is plenty of truth in that, but embracing imminent compromise isn't always acceptable. Let's take a look at how you can limit your exposure while letting unknown and untrusted users login with a shell.
Sooner or later we all decide to try and use our computers to do something new, something we've never done before, something exciting! Then we realise it's not as straightforward as we'd hoped.
