"Our product is more used to filtering Windows viruses than actual Linux viruses," said Ron O'Brien, an analyst at Sophos, a security firm in Abingdon, England.
The Office maker has taken a swing at the open source format, but the ODF Alliance says Open XML is not yet supported by any application so its performance can't even be measured.
runit, a Unix init scheme with service supervision written by Gerrit Pape, is a complete replacement for SysVinit. Its key benefits include improved boot speed and ease of use. In the time that it takes you to read this article, you could move from init to runit.
So, what if you donâ€™t like the way Windows is headed? You could abandon the PC altogether and go get yourself an Apple computer (which isnâ€™t as much of a pocketbook hit as it used to be). What about Linux? Is there room in your heart for Linux?
Spamcop is a service which provides RBLs for mailservers in order to reject incoming mail from spammers. Their philosophy is to process possible spam complaints from users.

There is an article at nixCraft on Connecting a Linux or UNIX system to Network attached storage device. The article itself is a good one, except for the part about iptables firewall rules to permit FTP and SMB/CIFS traffic between the Linux client and NAS.
