Commentary: Novell walking the walk of a true Linux company

SALT LAKE CITY -- I had an abbreviated schedule here on Day 4 as the main phase of Brainshare 2005 drew to a close.

So I'll use the occasion to provide a wrap-up of the conference rather than another daily summary.

Managing even a medium-sized Web site can be a real headache. If you are tired of manually managing content, updating news, and keeping track of old items, then you need a content management system -- software that makes it easy to handle the mundane administrative duties of a Web site. A good CMS lets you divide the task of posting content among many relatively unskilled people. The Mambo CMS, released under the GPL, is designed to handle the largest of Web sites, and, in my experience, does so admirably.

Why Novell's internal migration to Linux desktops is a landmark story

SALT LAKE CITY -- There have been so many announcements, so much activity, such a hurried pace to the Brainshare 2005 conference that I think many may have overlooked the big story.
