When moving to Linux, recompiling code for Unix apps not written in Java, Perl, tcl or ksh is a fact of life, says Alfredo Mendoza, one of the co-authors of Unix to Linux Porting.

Take a page from this IT pro as he explains the issues you face in porting apps from older Unix platforms and gives recommendations on how to tackle ANSI, ISO and POSIX industry standards.

Mac users scoffed, having had long file names for a decade and because Windows still stored a DOS file name in the background. Linux was born with long file name support four years before it showed up in Windows. Today, long file names are well supported by all three operating systems though key differences remain.
ORACLE boss Larry Ellison says that Red Hat was too small to give good customer support services and so his outfit was going to do it for them.

We are standing on the cusp of a real sea change in commodity hardware architectures—the move away from individual processing units that run at high speeds and temperatures to a team of connected units that individually (now at least) are less powerful, but make up for that several times over in sheer numbers.
