LINUX CREATOR TORVALDS EXTOLS OPEN-SOURCE WAY

LAS VEGAS -- Just 24 hours after Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates gave his Comdex opening keynote, Linux inventor Linus Torvalds used his speech Monday to poke a little fun at the world's richest man while also updating the road map for the Linux kernel and the progress of the open-source movement.

Torvalds also tantalized the sell-out crowd here Monday night by announcing that his company Transmeta, would reveal details on Jan. 19, 2000, about its plans to deliver a "smart CPU," a chip he claimed would be a microprocessor built with software. Pressed by members of the audience to describe the nature of the chip, Torvalds declined.

RED HAT 6.1 SHOOTS FOR ENTERPRISE

WITH RED HAT Linux 6.1, Red Hat has plunged headlong into the enterprise space. The latest version of Red Hat Linux offers an intuitive graphical installer, which makes setup and configuration easier for first-time users. It also supports network and systems management standards, including Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Wired for Management 2.0. Also, this release has an automated system update utility that promises to eliminate the IT headaches of keeping up with system and security patches.

Version 6.1 is by far the most user-friendly release of Red Hat Linux, and the management enhancements make it a strong contender for the enterprise OS space.
