Intuit Quicken and Microsoft Money are two popular Windows-based packages for personal financial management.

Hi, and welcome to the third in a series of articles on Security Enhanced Linux. My first SELinux article detailed the background of SELinux, while my second article in the series discussed how SELinux makes access decisions. This week, I'll talk about how an SELinux system differs from a standard Linux system in terms of administration. Most of what you already know about Linux system administration will still apply to an SELinux system, but there are some additions and changes that are critical to understand when using SELinux.

This review is subtitled "the Desktop Linux Showcase" which hints that it's not going to be a regular review about Mandriva Linux 2006 - I will certainly mention the strong and weak points about Mandriva Linux 2006, and report how things work in everyday use. But on top of that, I have decided to add some (well, a lot) more information; first, you will find an article within this review, about the background of the software repositories and software installation on Linux (please use that permanent link to the inline article).

When open source software is mentioned, one of the first thoughts that comes to mind is the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python).

Using MySQL with Windows has never been easier with .NET and ADO.NET.
