Damn Small Linux is a really amazing distribution and, as we noted, rather than having DSL take over the whole machine and then the PC requiring a reboot to get back to Windows, there is a version called "Embedded DSL" that can run alongside Windows in much the same way that coLinux can.
[Dell CEO] Rollins says the long-term solution to the interoperability issues faced by companies that want to deploy both Windows and Linux will involve some kind of systems-management approach that makes it easier for companies to run and manage the two environments side by side.

Yes, Sun Microsystems' new OpenSolaris really is an open-source project. And no, it's not likely to be much like the Linux open-source project. How are they alike?

As a consultant to small businesses trying to get up to speed on Linux, my must-have applications are OpenOffice.org, MySQLAdmin, and Rekall. I'm going to include Knoppix as well; although it isn't an application in the sense of being a single package, I use it as a system recovery tool rather than an operating system.
