Regina Lynn: Sexually Open

Tux needs to get laid more, at least if free open source software is going to mature and grab its place in the multi-billion dollar sex tech industry. As this candid and highly personal interview with Wired.com Sex Drive columnist Regina Lynn explains, the sex tech industry is a vast and important business network, driving billions of dollars and millions of lines of code every year into technology that interoperates with the desktop PC. For the short term, much of that code is proprietary, and much of the content is DRM'd. It's time for Tux to grab that situation by the balls, and turn the sex tech industry upside down, in much the same way he has done in other areas of high tech.

Traditional DNS Howto

  • HowtoForge; By Tom Adelstein and Falko Timme (Posted by dave on Apr 9, 2006 7:05 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial
This tutorial describes the basics of the Domain Name System (DNS) that Linux system administrators should know of.

Why open standards matter

  • NewsForge; By Tina Gasperson (Posted by dcparris on Apr 9, 2006 6:01 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Linux
I think open source software is a good thing, but I've never bought into the religious fundamentalist fervor of a lot of the circles I move in as an IT reporter. Condemning people for not using Linux instead of Windows, and the strong-arm tactics of some proprietary software makers that try to lock people into a certain product, are just two sides of the same coin. But open standards that make real choices possible? Now, that's something I can get behind.
