Industry has long attached IP and commercial benefit strings to research funding; however, there has been an increasing realization that the approach is flawed and not very scientific, particularly when it comes to open source, said Portland State University Associate Professor Bart Massey.

The new PortableApps Suite from John T. Haller, who also brought us Firefox Portable, Thunderbird Portable, and OpenOffice.org Portable, is designed to solve these problems, making it dead easy to turn your USB stick into a portable application platform and add a couple of useful features for good measure.

Managing hundreds or thousands of servers and desktops is a daunting job. System and network administrators need to be able to quickly load new machines, install applications, coordinate backups, balance network loads, and troubleshoot outages. They are constantly under assault by viruses, cyber criminals, and their own budgets. Rob Reilly examines one possible solution in NetIQ.

As for Etch, if you've installed *Ubuntu, you can install Debian Etch. In fact, Debian may have found a new home or two or three.
In general, you are not allowed to discriminate against the physically disabled in the workplace. When one thinks of a job in software development, however, one conjures up the image of programmers building applications or writing code in front of a computer screen - tasks apparently relying on good vision.
Linux is better at locking down a computer than Windows. The Linux OS uses configuration settings and user permissions to a much more efficient degree than the Windows administrator account.
