'Exchange killers' are successfully stalking Microsoft messaging

A few years ago, small open source-based companies that dared to challenge Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes in the corporate email and collaboration server marketplace got "David challenges Goliath, isn't that special?" stories written about them. Now, open source messaging and collaboration software providers are a normal part of the IT business landscape. And, according to OpenXchange Executive Vice President of Marketing Strategy Dan Kusnetzky, their products' acceptance is increasing steadily -- and not just among hard-core GNU/Linux and open source devotees.

The new platform maze

I own an old, quite customised Thinkpad a21m laptop, which I still use intensively when I’m out of town: with 256 Mb of RAM, a 750 MHz Pentium 3 chip and a 1024x768 screen running off an ATI chip, I can run pretty much all recent GNU/Linux distros around. I also have built a nice living-room warmer based off an Athlon64 X2 3800+ with a big, fat hard disk and more RAM than you can shake a stick at (well, almost). Is there a problem here?

If I tell you that I need to download ten (10) different CD images to install both according to their specificities, maybe you’ll get it.

Is GNU/Linux Really Replacing Windows?

LXer Feature: 11-Aug-2006

Don Parris' straw poll about replacing Windows with GNU/Linux on a couple of distribution listservs has taken on a whole life of its own in the Ubuntu Users forum.

Simplify Data Extraction Using Linux Text Utilities

Much of Linux system administration involves tediously combing through plain-text configuration files. Fortunately, Linux has a rich array of UNIX-derived data extraction utilities, including head, tail, grep, egrep, fgrep, cut, paste, join, awk, and more. This article uses real-world examples that show how these simple command-line programs can make you a better sysadmin. Also look at each data extraction utility and its options, and learn how to apply them to typical day-to-day work files.

Apple Open Source Returns

Apple’s support for open source is not dead after all, despite a slew of reports to the contrary, including my own. Apple open source lives. On Monday, in a single email on its Darwin-dev mailing list, Apple Open Source Product Manager Ernest Prabhakar posted the following:

"As of today, we are posting buildable kernel sources for Intel-based Macs alongside the usual PowerPC (and other Intel) sources, starting with Mac OS X 10.4.7. We regret the delay in readying the new kernel for release, and thank you for your patience."

Using phpMyAdmin

So many open source projects depend on MySQL that it's almost impossible for administrators and other open source enthusiasts to avoid working with at least one MySQL database. MySQL's command line interface is easy enough to use, but if you don't feel like reaching for a five-pound MySQL reference book or Googling for proper SQL syntax, phpMyAdmin is a great alternative to learning MySQL commands by heart.

When the Linux Ten Commandments were committed to stone, Number One was, "Thou shalt not use root for thy personal login." Too bad the masses didn't get the memo. They've left the Linux priesthood forever gnashing its teeth in denial. Email Battles captured a chat with one of the sinners.

Linux OS "just as bloated as Windows"

  • (Posted by henke54 on Aug 11, 2006 1:31 AM EDT)
A WEB SITE has launched into an attack on the 15 year old Linux in a tirade which puts the attack on James I in the shade. The writer or writers accuse Linux developers of being puerile while Unix is "an extremely user hostile OS". Further Linux "has always been extremely flawed, and hopeless inferior to the design philosophy of Apple - later adopted by Microsoft". The site describes nearly always members "of the Linux faith" as living in a "land of delusion".
