Commentary: Novell made two major Linux-related announcements at CEBIT this week. They announced SUSE Professional 9.3, due to be released in April, and ZENworks 7 for Linux. Unlike many press releases in this industry, announcing a new customer contract or otherwise allowing marketing folk to message the masses (forgive me, Baud, for the babble-speak), these two actually have some weight to them. Novell's director of marketing for SUSE LINUX, Greg Mancusi-Ungaro, and ZENworks product management and marketing vice president Alan Murray combined to brief NewsForge on the news yesterday afternoon, following the SUSE Professional 9.3 announcement at CEBIT, but ahead of today's unveiling at CEBIT of the latest version of ZENworks.
Built on a Debian Linux core, Linspire is designed for simplicity of use, and it delivers this in spades. Linspire eliminates the need for me to be technically proficient in the nuances of Linux to successfully operate and enjoy the OS. This includes loading software, staying updated, and never seeing a command-line interface. It makes it very easy to just get on with what I have to do and not worry about the technicalities of using a Linux-based system.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Far away from the usual open source software industry focus on code, freedom, and evangelism, the InnoTech conference and expo held here this week centered on the business of open source for business' sake. Sure there was talk about the advantages of Linux and open source technology, the ability to impact operating system-level functionality, and fighting unwarranted fears of a different model, but the heart of the conference was the beat of business -- cutting costs, driving value, and saving time and grief.
The Ubuntu team earlier today announced the release of the preview of the second Ubuntu Linux release: Ubuntu 5.04-preview (Hoary Hedgehog). Released includes X.org 6.8.2 and Gnome 2.10 - release just yesterday. Available as both an install and a live CD.

Assuming no problems are found, the final version of Thunderbird 1.0.1 will come out within a day or two.

Some like it hot and fancy. Not Tux. He likes it cold and cheap. Take the iPod for example. That's hot. Everyone is talking about it, it's selling by the millions, and it has given the major record labels a little breathing room because it encourages music sales. But Tux finds it boring. It doesn't really help Tux in his quest for global domination.
The presence of Linux-based appliances for IT is growing more and more. But the work to produce such devices has also kept growing, keeping potential appliance-based solutions off the market entirely. But one new company has a strong solution: develop most of the appliance platform ahead of time, leaving only the specialized code to the appliance maker.
But where does a $96 billion behemoth find rapid growth? For IBM, the answer lies in emerging markets around the world and among midsize companies. That's why winning over developers and application providers is a critical goal for IBM's software chief, Steve Mills. The senior vice president and group executive recently spoke with CNET News.com about the company's strategy and weighed in on what he thinks is wrong with the Java community process.
In these days of always-on Internet connections, a firewall that protects your network from unauthorized access is indispensable. Though most home routers have some sort of basic firewall capabilities, their rules for incoming and outgoing traffic are often basic and arbitrary. An alternative is to run a Linux-based firewall on old hardware, but configuring this sort of setup is generally not easy. An exception is SmoothWall, a free application you can install on any old machine to convert it to a dedicated hardware firewall. SmoothWall has a friendly interface and more configuration options than standard hardware firewalls.
