Linux gets reseller friendly

Filed under
Linux

I spent many years covering the reseller and integrator side of technology. These are the businesses that you, as a private person, have probably never heard of, but they're essential partners for companies that use software and hardware. In short, all companies.

So I was happy to see that SYNNEX, a leading software and hardware distributor, had partnered up with Red Hat and other open-source ISV (independent software vendors) to form the Open Source Channel Alliance. It may just be what's needed to get Linux and open-source software into more offices.

The name of the new alliance's game is to deliver open-source technologies to a VARs (Value Added Resellers) and system integrators through SYNNEX. From these, in turn, companies will be able to get both software and support from not only Red Hat and JBoss but Alfresco, EnterpriseDB, Ingres, Jaspersoft, Likewise, Pentaho, Zmanda, Zenoss and Zimbra as well.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
