When I wrote last month's my sysadmin toolbox column, I knew that Linux.com readers would probably have a few suggestions. I was surprised, however, by the sheer number of responses we got from readers with suggestions for other tools. With all those good suggestions, it seemed like a good idea to compile a list of the most popular reader-suggested tools and utilities to cover some of the programs that didn't make the first column.

Bruce Lowry of Novell Open PR says that AMD is moving up to become a platinum partner with Novell in the technology program. Platinum partner is the highest level of company relations with Novell. This continues an already strong relationship that the SuSE development team has with AMD engineers. A full time AMD engineer is moving on site to Novell. This of course is going to help Novell's enterprise server market. This is definitely better news from Novell than what we have been hearing lately. Novell definitely needs to show some positive PR of late. If there were any doubts about SuSE's future I believe Novell has only the best of intentions and great promise.
