George Weiss, Gartner's open-source analyst, recently said that Microsoft Windows will not suffer irreparable damage on the server side at the hands of Linux over the next five years. He's right. Microsoft will fall flat on its face all by itself, and Linux will pick up afterwards.
In the olden days Linux administrators had a static /dev directory. It was inflexible and obese, containing 99% irrelevant entries, and we liked it that way. Then came devfs. Then descended the unbearded prophet Greg Kroah-Hartman from his mountaintop lair with yet another dev filesystem, called thereforth udev. Endless debates rage about devfs vs. udev.
Replacements, Ltd. has carved a niche market out of locating and selling hard-to-find china, crystal, and silver tableware and collectibles. Nearly half of the company's seven million retail customers place orders through the call center, The other half do business over the Web.

Market research firm Venture Development Corp. (VDC) has published its annual re-cap of the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC), held in Boston the week of Sept. 18. VDC's report highlights several announcements of potential interest to developers and companies in the embedded Linux market.
Now you know how to mount a NFS or Windows/Samba remote file system. It is time to mount remote filesystems automatically at boot time using /etc/fstab (another possibility is mount local and remote file system on demand using autofs service).
Although Red Hat's business is primarily focused on corporate computer networks, the Raleigh software company has a history with Linux in devices, as well.
The Free Software Foundation is wading ever more deeply into the controversial waters of digital rights management, with members of its DefectiveByDesign.org campaign set to descend on flagship Apple stores in New York and London on Oct. 3 to protest the company's embrace of that technology.
Open source personal video recorder (PVR) software like MythTV has acquired a reputation for being difficult to install and maintain, so you might think that a proprietary PVR app would enjoy an advantage. I put SageTV's Linux media center software through its paces, and I can tell you that it, too, requires commitment. If you stick with it, though, and can outfit your system correctly, it might be worth the $80 price tag, despite a slew of little annoyances.
Now that I have been using Ubuntu Linux for about 6 months pretty much full time, here is my list of software I cannot seem to replace:
Everyone loves IRC (stands for Internet Relay Chat; a kind of group chat room often used by open source/free software projects and developers, or as support channels), unfortunately the open source IRC clients out there are often hidden away. In this week's article, I'm going to show you how to set up your IRC client in under 5 minutes using only free software.
OpenOffice.org has rejected accusations that its open-source application suite is at least as susceptible to attack as Microsoft's Office in a terse statement posted on its Web site.
"The OpenOffice.org community confirms it regards security as of the highest importance and will react immediately to any security issues," the statement read.
We’ve been using ReiserFS as our default installation file system for the last 6-7 years now, and it’s served us well in that time. Unfortunately, there are a number of problems with it, some purely technical, some more related to maintenance. I’ll outline a few of the larger issues and offer my solution as a conclusion.
The Amarok Project is giving away an iPod Nano during its current fundraiser to celebrate the month of Roktober. Anyone that gives the equivalent of $10 or more is automatically entered in a random drawing to win a 2GB iPod Nano.
Last week we announced Mandriva's brand new distribution, and now Mandriva Linux 2007 is finally available to the public. The key innovation of Mandriva Linux 2007 is the spectacular AIGLX and Xgl 3D-accelerated desktop. Mandriva is the only distribution to provide both technologies and is particularly happy to have achieved this major breakthrough in desktop appearance.

Super Grub Disk (SGD) is a specialty rescue CD for emergency repairs on boot sectors. Despite its name, SGD not only manipulates the Grand Unified Bootloader (GRUB), but also works with the content of other master boot records as well.
You may not know what Linux is, but there's a good chance you use it every day. It's not a household cleaner or a prescription drug, but a form of software that is spreading beyond corporate computer networks into electronic devices such as personal digital assistants, TiVo boxes, navigation systems and home routers. Before long, it could be in your cell phone, too.
