I administer servers and networking equipment in a small to mid-size heterogeneous (but 99.44% *nix) environment. I've worked on projects ranging from NIS-to-LDAP migration for authentication, to the deployment of a 164-CPU Beowulf cluster, to writing an extension to a large OO-PHP application. I'm a generalist, but my favorite areas are LDAP (and authentication in general), database design and administration, and automation (a broad category that includes writing tools and code to glue services together). Here are my favorite tools.
VMware is making a free virtualization server for Linux and Windows.. That's simply tremendous news, though I'm surprised by how many people I talk to who don't understand why this is so important.
Real revolutions, the ones that last, are often quiet ones.
They aren't shocking. They don't rock the world. They just change the world so slowly that it's only when you wake up one day and think about it, you realize the world isn't the same anymore.
That's what's happened with open source and software development.
While we don't know how Edgar 'Gimli' Hucek did it yet, what we do know is that he appears to be the first to get Linux running on a Mactel. It had been expected that porting Linux to a Mactel would happen relatively quickly, unlike, say porting Windows to the same hardware.

Firefox's appetite memory has some users up in arms, but one of the its developers say they may misunderstand a caching feature.
Once a concept thought to be oxymoronic, the business of open-source software is now working its way through adolescence to full-blown maturity. And the Open Source Business Conference (OSBC) in San Francisco this week proved that like the teen years, the transition brings growing pains.

System and network administrators and packagers alike may find a handy tool in y2pmsh, a shell interface for SUSE Linux's YaST2 package manager.
The former CA chief executive who faces charges following the 2004 $2.2bn accounting scandal at the company has been accused of destroying evidence on his laptop.
Designers are turning to the Linux operating system to meet the escalating user-interface, networking, and multimedia requirements of today's consumer-electronics products.
NOVELL seems to be tailoring its SUSE operating system so that it can take on Microsoft’s Vista. That could mean that Linux will get GUI features before Vista hits the shop.
After 6 months of development, the KDE Localisation (l10n) website web site has been launched replacing the old i18n.kde.org. It uses the default KDE layout, and its admins hope this site will help the KDE translation process work better than ever.

You just saw "Segmentation fault (core dumped)" or a message like "Unexpected Signal 11 ". Why? Short answer: it's most likely hardware unless you wrote the program or just now installed it on your machine.

I do almost everything in text mode when working with Linux. Some tasks -- such as browsing the Web and reading email -- are harder to do satisfactorily at the console. I use Firefox to browse the Web, but finally I found a good tool to quickly access my mail in text mode.
Adobe Photoshop, Autocad, and Macromedia Dreamweaver continue to run 1-2-3 in the balloting, according to the online survey currently in progress on Novell's CoolSolutions community website. Free and open-source software (FOSS) already available for Linux that have similar feature sets to Photoshop.
A wave of consolidation is sweeping the information technology industry, and many open-source business applications will be left behind when customers pare down their suppliers, an SAP executive predicted Wednesday.
Novell's new CTO Jeff Jaffe is very bullish on the outlook for the Linux desktop going forward, saying he believes it is on the cusp of a significant adoption wave.
The purpose of 'shutdown' is to bring the system down cleanly. It should kill off user processes gently (starting with SIGTERM so that processes that trap that can clean up open files, etc.) and it should then have 'init' change run levels so that appropriate scripts can run to do other cleanup. This is all to the good. But should traditional commands be perverted to prevent naive users from damaging systems?
