My sysadmin toolbox

I have used Linux since I was eleven, and I'm approaching my seventeenth birthday now.

Holding out for a (Linux) hero

Based on the ongoing enthusiasm about Linux, I presumed it would be simple to find companies just busting to tell how they'd ditched their Microsoft server software and moved onto Linux servers. Everybody's doing it, after all, aren't they?

Samsung aims to bring solid disks to market

Not that it should come as much of a surprise that the largest flash memory manufacturer in the world would be dabbling in solid state disk drives (SSD), but once Samsung gets their legal ducks in a row we don't have any reason to believe they won't make good on taking that 32GB NAND SSD we saw appear at CeBIT to the consumer market.

I came to the LXer Linux news site quite some time ago, while they still had between 1.000 and 2.000 readers daily - now it’s over 300.000 a month. It is just a great site. Almost ad-free, mostly community-driven, and lead by great minds like Tom Adelstein, who is also an author and co-author with O’Reilly.

This is just great great stuff. I wish we’d have more sites like these. So for LXer, like for the Planets, it’s a five-thumbs-up. Highly recommended stuff. At least daily.

Linspire Mini

Chalk one up for the Linux guys. Linspire, the creators of the Debian/GNU Linux based Linspire OS, showcased a self-branded mini PC at CES 2006 that somehow slipped under the radar.

Microsoft Vista: Not 'People Ready'

The argument rages on websites, blogs and even in some of the mainstream ink and paper publications. Is Linux ready for the desktop? Many of us say yes. Are you in this camp? You better call your mom. She wants to talk to you about this.

Mini-ITX Part III

  • XYZ Computing; By Sal Cangeloso (Posted by grouch on Mar 23, 2006 11:19 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Community
This time I had some big plans in store for the Mini-ITX box. The plans were, roughly, to install a hard drive, move to a more powerful Linux distribution, and add PVR capabilites to the system. Because the computer was already situated in my living room, making it into a personal video recorder was an obvious choice, though doing this on a Mini-ITX Linux system would surely take a bit of finesse.

Of Vista, Linux, and the User Experience

  • Yet Another Linux Blog; By devnet (Posted by devnet on Mar 23, 2006 8:57 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Community
I was reading this article earlier this week and thought that it was interesting. It announced the Windows Vista release as being delayed. I thought that this was just par for the course and something Microsoft always has done and will always do...delay. However, what does this mean for the Linux desktop? Does it mean anything at all? Probably not on the scale most are hoping.
