LinuxWorld Case Study: OSAS and Red Hat

  • LinuxWorld; By Ann Wickstrom; Amy Dohlman (Posted by tadelste on Oct 21, 2005 11:37 PM EDT)
  • Groups: Red Hat; Story Type: News Story
RSA MicroTech produces and distributes industrial fertilizer products to coast-to-coast wholesalers from four production facilities connected through their headquarters in Marysville, Washington. Orders range from a few hundred up to tens of thousands of dollars and total between $12 million and $15 million in annual sales. Along with managing inventory for the on-demand orders that can comprise up to half of all the orders it gets, RSA MicroTech must also meet complicated reporting requirements that differ for each state in which it sells. Although RSA MicroTech used Open Systems Accounting Software (OSAS) for some time, it used an older version that didn't have the enhancements that simplify workflow. And there was little connectivity between production facilities and the company's headquarters, making things inefficient and cumbersome. There had to be a better way.

Major layoffs expected at Novell

Novell is expected to initiate a major round of layoffs that could cut 1,000 or more jobs in an attempt to restore the server software company's financial strength, according to employees familiar with the plan.

First Look at OpenSUSE 10

Novell has made some interesting changes in distribution and development since our last review of SUSE Linux. Many say it's for the better and I'd say I'm inclined to go with that theory. To tell you the truth, I never thought I'd see the day SUSE opened up it's doors to the community to help expand and concert development efforts, but here we are in a world where SUSE is open and still making geeks sweat every time a new release comes out. Without a doubt, OpenSUSE was one of the biggest announcements of the 2005... and for good reason. SUSE has always been one of the most popular Linux distros on the planet. As of this writing DistroWatch has it ranked as the #3 distro, coming in after Ubuntu at #1 and Mandriva at #2. SUSE has always been at the top of their game and judging by the numbers they still are. Is it worth the download? Is it worth our time? We're here to take a look....

Ever since Apple launched the Mac mini back in January people have been waiting for a similar system based on x86.
