Titan IT, local Novell and Microsoft business partner, has announced a move to enter the Linux services market by adopting an aggressive Linux certification strategy for its key technical staff.
Last time we began talking about using Linux in a small office by discussing what to look for in hardware and the operating system. Once you've settled on your base system, it's time to connect it to the Internet, and that brings up concerns about your systems' security.

The strengthening position of Linux and open source in the local and global arena is not leading to attrition of Microsoft's market share, which still has a huge hold on the worldwide market, a study on the Linux open source software and services market in SA has revealed.
Think of this as a good little computer upgrade for those times when you really do need a break.
As a project manager, what software do you find essential? Well, if you're good, you'll say none -- there's nothing that you can do on a PC that you can't do with a pencil and paper. However, if you want help from software, and you don't have unlimited funds for proprietary applications such as Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Project, there are a number of Linux-based project planners that you can choose from. If you want one that's simple but covers many of the basics, consider Imendio Planner.
Businesses can save a bundle by combining the best of both the open source software and commercial software worlds, says Bob Bickel, vice president of corporate strategy and development at JBoss Inc., which has flourished doing just that.
If its strategy for migrating its Palm OS over to an open-source kernel is successful, PDA powerhouse PalmSource could thrust Linux into the center of the mobile device marketplace.
Novell and SUSE's latest Linux offering is very slick, and it's going to impress the business community. The casual home user may feel a little differently, however. Unless you are feeling particularly adventurous and you've got some time on your hands, I'd pass on taking the Beagle for a walk.

A friend of mine who watches these things tells me that Microsoft in the past would have shut down sales of pirated Windows copies on eBay — but isn't any more, essentially allowing the eBay marketplace to discover the "true" value of the OS.So, three somewhat overlapping questions... 1. (Maybe I should know the answer to this already, but I don't) Are sales of these copies violating Microsoft's rules? 2. Is there really a new Microsoft practice involved here? Meaning, are they passively sanctioning a Windows market flourish outside their authorized retail and OEM channels? 3. What, if anything, has happened, and why?
Opinion: The Zotob attacks could have been prevented by proper Windows patching, or they could have easily been prevented for less by using Linux in the first place.
Despite neutral-sounding statements about Total Cost of Ownership ("TCO") of Linux v. Windows -- and even some surprisingly insightful comments -- a lady who used to shill for Microsoft is still shilling, arguing that large organizations should not switch. Her sophistry is as transparent as glass.
I needed a way to display my desktop to a user at the other end of a network connection for an online training project. All the obvious solutions had serious drawbacks, so I had to dig deeper to find an answer. I turned up NoMachine's NX software, a terminal server application for Linux and Solaris hosts. The product worked across my LAN, although I was only partially successful going across a WAN.
As millions of users already know, Linux is a great choice for home office use because it's fast, secure, reliable, and cost-effective. If you use a computer for a home-based business, it's important to expand your Linux administration efforts beyond installing the right applications. You'll also want to choose the right hardware and Linux distribution, set up a backup and disaster recovery plan, pay attention to system security, and select the right ISP, so your home office will remain profitable, especially in the event of an unforeseen catastrophe.

Dedicated Chinese Language Site for openSUSE Project Will Encourage Chinese Contributions to Linux and Open Source Community
In 1969, UNIX was created at Bell Labs. For decades, the source of the AT&T dialect of UNIX came from the researches of workers in department 1127. When the "Baby Bells" split from "Ma Bell," department 1127 survived. When AT&T and Lucent split, 1127 survived. But the new reorg at Bell Labs finally breaks up what's left of 1127 entirely. Theory people will go to one place, systems people to another, I'm told. I'm not sure what happens to those who fall in neither camp. There was no malice, so far as I can tell — just an administrative reorg forced by recent cutbacks and layoffs and departures that left the whole research area with too many managers and too few researchers.
