Ian Molton's efforts on the portable gadgets, whose internal workings are closely guarded by their manufacturers, began when he decided to port the open source kernel to a PDA that originally had WindowsCE installed on it. Upset at the lack of stability in Microsoft's attempt at embedded software engineering, Ian drew on his knowledge from working with 26bit ARM powered Acorn machines to hack the Linux kernel onto the devices.

Besieged Owners of Various Assets heard this as "the right to steal anything, anytime without being hassled."

Thus, the circle is complete. Network managers are surrounded.

When you build your infrastructure around the Linux operating system, you get the ultimate in flexibility. Linux servers don't care if you want them to serve Linux, Unix, Windows or Mac clients. Linux desktops don't care if they have to rely on an Active Directory domain controller for authentication and access to resources, or if the get to play in an all-Linux environment, or have to tug a forelock to a mighty Unix server.

Taking Linux On The Road With Ubuntu

The Ubuntu H2 Micro USB Drive is a pretty interesting product idea. Bundling a tiny storage device with a fully-featured open source operating system enables the user to take a system installation, all its settings and applications, and a limited amount of data with him.

Firefox Hacks (Hacks)

Good bok for developers and admins alike Firefox Hacks is a great collection of information about the Mozilla Firefox browser. While almost anyone who has used Firefox would learn a great deal from reading this book, developers, admins, and advanced power users would benefit most from reading this. The book starts out nicely by going under the hood to look at internal settings, then turns to presentation aids and then to developer tools. I wish I'd had the book several months ago when I was doing more development! From code development the book moves into altering the browser look and feel, and finally into extension development. Although I may never do so, it's nice getting a guided look into areas I don't see on a day to day basis.

Linux-Vserver on Debian Sarge

Linux-VServer allows you to create virtual private servers and security contexts which operate like a normal Linux server, but allow many independent servers to be run simultaneously in one box at full speed. All services, such as ssh, mail, Web, and databases, can be started on such a VPS, without modification, just like on any real server. Each virtual server has its own user account database and root password and doesn't interfere with other virtual servers
