Zabbix has the capability to monitor just a about any event on your network from network traffic to how many papers are left in your printer. It produces really cool grahps.
After the official announcement Monday morning, investment firm Goldman Sachs issued a statement praising Red Hat's move to buy JBoss for $350 million. The New York investment firm acknowledged it would come as a blow to many of Red Hat's Linux partners as well as operating system rivals Novell and Microsoft but asserted it's a good risk.
Novell may be passionately evangelising Linux and Open Office on the desktop but more than half of its own employees can still boot Microsoft Windows and Office if they wish.
Microsoft says there will be no change to its existing technical collaboration agreement with JBoss; Red Hat says customer demand will drive all existing Red Hat-JBoss partnerships.
When you are the wealthiest company in the world (in terms of cash on hand and ongoing quarterly profits), you have some options that other companies just don't have when it comes to dealing with competition. And last week, at the center of the LinuxWorld maelstrom of open source projects and products, Microsoft threw a few surprises at the Linux and virtualization camps when it announced that not only would it be giving away the latest iteration of its Virtual Server 2005 software for free, but that it would also provide technical support for Linux running inside virtual machines inside VS 2005.
Australia's Academic and Research Network (AARNet) has launched a major upgrade of its mirror service that provides an Australian site from which users can download the most popular open source software.
Desktop Linux has finally turned into the real deal--and that can only mean real headaches for Microsoft, says Jon Oltsik.
I'm a student who does freelance PHP coding and pixel art. I've always wanted a dedicated computer for my work, but that would take a considerable investment on a student's income. I found the perfect solution in the pairing of an older Compaq Deskpro and Damn Small Linux (DSL).
Linux advocates are familiar with the refrain that would-be switchers in the graphic arts have to rely on Adobe Photoshop under Windows because it can do things that the GIMP can't. An important but altogether different hurdle is the installed (and paid-for) base of often expensive third-party Photoshop plugins. But a solution to that problem might be easier than you think.
On October 16, 2005, the Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) announced the creation of a new initiative called the Mobile Linux Initiative (MLI) to focus on accelerating the adoption of Linux in the rapidly growing mobile market. The OSDL's Ibrahim Haddad files this report on the progress of MLI.
By the end of this tutorial, you will know guide a system through booting, set kernel parameters, and shut down or reboot a system. The tutorial is organized according to the specific objectives of the LPI exam for this topic. If you're studying for certification -- or simply building a solid foundation in Linux systems administration -- you will be ready to proceed to the next tutorial in the exam 102 series.
Novell may be passionately evangelising Linux and Open Office on the desktop but more than half of its own employees can still boot Microsoft Windows and Office if they wish. Ron Hovsepian, Novell’s president, speaking at a press event in Sydney, conceded that "about 2,000 employees right now out of 5,000 are single-boot only, which is Linux only, the rest are dual-boot." He said that a project to migrate the 3,000 dual-boot workers to open source is likely to be completed over the next year or so.
A RealNetworks vice president voiced a few inflammatory opinions during LinuxWorld Boston last Tuesday. The RealNetworks rep in question, Jeff Ayars, said that Linux as a consumer platform would be dead unless DRM capabilities are built into the OS itself.
The Open Source Developer Labs (OSDL) is aiming to make it easier for open source developers to write code for Linux systems by uniting the two main Linux graphical user interfaces in development work. Project Portland, announced at last week's LinuxWorld conference in the US, aims to bridge the divide between the Gnome and...
It's good to get the first one under your belt.
Review: Fast-moving distro works well in server, developer and desktop roles.
To some, Dell marches to the beat of Intel and Microsoft drums, dutifully following their research and development plans. But to hear Kevin Kettler tell it, the PC maker often takes its own lead.

In typical fashion on a quiet, overcast weekend afternoon, I paid a visit to my local bookstore and browsed through some of my favorite magazines. This time around, Linux Format (Issue 78, April) had some interesting trend bits on the Linux front.
