A quiet week out here in the Land of Enterprise Unix. As the dust settles from the pseudo-departure of Scott McNealy as CEO of Sun Microsystems, the rest of the enterprise Unix community is rather dormant, as if stunned by the news and exhausted from three months of trade shows and conferences all around the planet.
Atmel Corporation has chosen LinuxLink by TimeSys as the primary Linux distribution mechanism for its ARM-based processors.

Old boys: 'Watch your step, mister'
Patent attorneys rarely let their sang-froid slip. But this week the British Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA) did just that when it warned the Treasury-commissioned Gowers Review of Intellectual Property to watch its step.

A couple of years ago, we set up a Linux box running Postfix, SpamAssassin and Amavisd to try and reduce the amount of spam we were getting on our mail server. We used the latest versions of each product. It has done pretty well but we have noticed in the past few weeks that more spam is getting through. Writing new rules doesn't seem to make much of a difference. What can we look at to start reducing the level of incoming spam?
Last week, the Massachusetts Information Technology Division (ITD) issued a Request for Information (RFI) on any plugins that might be under development to assist it in migrating from a MS Office environment to one based upon software that supports ODF. Perhaps Microsoft may be willing to lend a hand.
It will not have escaped your attention that Microsoft is labouring to finish the next version of its Windows operating system, Vista. A version aimed at the corporate market is supposed to be ready for Christmas, with the consumer edition following some time later (missing the Christmas market, which has irritated computer manufacturers and retailers more than somewhat). Last week, Gartner, a leading IT consultancy, predicted that Microsoft would miss those shipping dates.

Reg Reader Studies There are those who proclaim Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) as the future of information technology; others say it's all just hype created by the industry to drive the next wave of spending.
t's amazing in an age where relational databases reign supreme when it comes to managing data that so much information still exists outside RDBMS engines in the form of flat files and other such constructs. In most enterprises, data is passed back and forth between disparate systems in a fashion and speed that would rival the busiest expressways in the world, with much of this data existing in common, delimited files. Target systems intercept these source files and then typically proceed to load them via ETL (extract, transform, load) processes into databases that then utilize the information for business intelligence, transactional functions, or other standard operations. ETL tasks and data movement jobs can consume quite a bit of time and resources, especially if large volumes of data are present that require loading into a database. This being the case, many DBAs welcome alternative means of accessing and managing data that exists in file format.
The Geek Freedom League says its winter Linux certification drive will probably be the last time geeks will be able to get Linux Professional Institute certification on the cheap.

The Linux community is all about standardization this year. The Linux Standard Base is gathering steam, the Portland project is trying to bring unity to the desktops, and the Open Document Format (ODF) has been in the news quite a bit. Now if we could just get projects to agree on standard usage for naming, I'd be a happy camper.

In December 2004 it was decided that DotNetNuke would break out its existing core modules into separate Projects so that they could be enhanced, released, and supported independently from the core Web Application Framework. It was further decided that some additional modules would also be added as official Projects to provide an increased level of richness to the platform. The first modules that we determined were going to be added were the TTT Forum and TTT Gallery, authored by Tam Tran Minh of TTT Corporation.
