Seems pretty simple to me...read the headline, if the headline has the proper "hook", then read the article. OK...Since I write for a living, I personally understand the concept. But I do not mislead you with it.
The company seeks to persuade Netware fans to go Linux while also wooing Windows users.
Florian Mueller has dedicated much of his recent life to the minutiae of European legislative process. With help from a host of others, he successfully fought software patents in Europe. Today he's announcing that he's written a book about the experience, delving deep into European government and legislative process, and delivering a unique and entertaining insight into the fusion of lobbying, open source software, and activism that defined the patent battle of Europe.
Three years ago I built my own computer and installed Mandrake v9.1 on it. It was a joy to learn and use Linux, to not worry about spyware and viruses any longer, and to graduate to a stable operating system. Not long afterward I became involved with a small charity that refurbishes older computers to donate to people who normally would not be able to afford their own computer. The donated computers we work on are generally 133MHz to 500MHz Pentium II vintage, often with less than 128MB of RAM. Mandrake proved impossibly slow to use on these machines, but VectorLinux impressed me with its speed, ease of install, well-chosen lightweight applications, and stability.

There are a number of open source IT monitoring and management tools that enterprises should be keeping an eye on. In a recent InfoWorld blog, GroundWork Open Source CEO Ranga Rangachari highlights the Ganglia project. The Ganglia Monitoring System is an open source cluster monitoring technology started within UC Berkeley's Millenium Clustered Computing Labs. It has been downloaded over 110,000 times from 145 countries and currently has dozens of contributing developers. As large companies are increasingly creating server farms of thousands of servers, new server management and monitoring requirements are surfacing. On the monitoring side, polling breaks down after a few hundred servers, so you have to go to an interrupt-driven architecture with "list and announce" protocols. Also, aside from the technical issues, traditional monitoring solutions are prohibitively expensive when you roll out hundreds of servers at a time. As clustering continues to become more pervasive in enterprise IT, Ganglia will be one to watch.
Red Hat's quarterly profit more than doubled on the back of strong subscription sales from corporate customers.
This year I went to the FOSDEM for the first time, and like the last few years, I will most probably also visit Linuxtag. But what I missed so far, and where I also cannot go this time, is the Debconf, which will be in Mexico. So I searched around a bit and found almost the whole conference of last year (in Finland) on 2 DVDs, which you can download for free.

Most books on Linux software package management limit themselves to one or perhaps two distros. After all, each flavor of Linux seems to use a different tool for package management on the system. Michael Jang decides to take on all the major systems including Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), Fedora, SUSE, and Debian, plus several others. The range of this book goes from patch management on the individual computer to updating software packages on entire networks.
