Open source adoption within companies has occurred in a series of waves, each moving free software successively closer to the heart of the enterprise. First, there was Apache, whose rise is documented vividly in the Netcraft server survey. After the Web server, open source began to find favour for file serving, typically using GNU/Linux and Samba. GNU/Linux was also used to run proprietary databases like Oracle and DB2, but more recently open source databases like MySQL have proved increasingly popular with companies.
We selected MySQL because we were small, it was free, and because it was well integrated with PHP, our language of choice.”.

LiveCDs -- distributions that allow you to boot a Linux system without installing software on a PC's hard drive -- are popping up faster than Windows security alerts. Riding on the phenomenal success and popularity of Knoppix, LiveCDs for specialized use are available for everything from MythTV to MAME. No, not Auntie Mame, MAME as in Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator, which lets you do important things like play Donkey Kong. Believe it or not, there are several LiveCDs focused on the MAME-niche itch. Here's a look at the arcade/system emulator movement and two LiveCDs designed to put you in touch with your inner Donkey Kong: KnoppixMAME and AdvanceCD. I'm happy with game play under both. I only wish I knew more about the legality of using them.
