LINUX PICKS UP STEAM

IN A MOVE some believe will help ensure unity among Linux developers, two Linux standards bodies have joined to piece together an application development guideline.

The new organization, the Free Standards Group (FSG), brings together the Linux Standard Base project and the Linux Internationalization Initiative. The group will operate as a nonprofit company, positioned to attract outside capital.

SOME GOOD REASONS -- AND ONE BAD ONE -- WHY
YOU SHOULD NOT TREAT LINUX LIKE WINDOWS

Posted at May 12, 2000 01:01 PM

THE RAPID GROWTH of Linux in the server market will no doubt mean that people who are primarily familiar with Windows will need to learn how to administer Linux servers. Please accept some friendly advice: Don't treat Linux like you do Windows.

Most Windows troubleshooting sessions go like this. First, reboot. If that doesn't fix the problem, try reinstalling or upgrading one or more drivers and then reboot again. If that still doesn't work, reinstall or upgrade the application that is giving you trouble and reboot again. If that doesn't work, reinstall everything. Start with Windows, add the latest Windows fix pack, install the latest drivers, and then reinstall all your applications and their fix packs. Configure everything again.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

"In the next two to three years, there are going to be more wireless ports than wired ports in the world. Cell phones are becoming an office with all the features of an office available around the world, and we are seeing the beginnings of this in the United States."
