When it comes to IT infrastructure security, there are things that IT managers just shouldn't do. This two-part tip is written for those who'd like to avoid making those mistakes. It covers four security areas that are either ignored or overlooked in IT infrastructure security, with a focus on securing Linux-based hosts.
It used to be called the network neighborhood. On Windows XP machines, it's called network places. You may now be running a Linux desktop, but there are many important files shared from the XP machine over in accounting, files that are shared in the network neighborhood. Files you need to work with. Ironically, some of those Windows file servers may in fact be Linux servers running Samba, seamlessly providing network drives to Windows desktops inside your company.
KDE is going to celebrate its 10th anniversary. On 14th October 1996, Matthias Ettrich announced the beginning of a project which is now one of the biggest and most exciting open source projects. To celebrate this event we'd like to invite you to our little birthday party on Friday, October 13th, 2006. Matthias Ettrich and Mark Shuttleworth will be keynote speakers.

The six branches of the Howard County Library system in Maryland provide 300 computers to their clients. This week, every computer has been upgraded from a "homegrown" Linux kernel, to Groovix, an Ubuntu Linux derivative.
The Companies Office, a unit of the Ministry of Economic Development, has launched a new website. What is special about the new website is that it is based on ‘Open Source’ software. It is only the third government department to do so but the first one of the “top five” Government sites in NZ (by number of visitors).

Turbolinux has been around since 1992. Everyone knows about this commercial distro, but for some reason it never became as popular as SUSE or Mandriva. Turbolinux 11, code-named "Fuji," was released recently and I decided it was time to see if Turbolinux measures up to other Linux distros. The Fuji release has some interesting features, but I found the release to be a disappointment overall.

You should remember the recent license issue about the legal imposibility to distribute cdrtools binaries under both CDDL and GPL, which led to a fork — namely, cdrkit. I felt like I would need an even simpler approach, limited to what’s of interest for source code.

In the six and a half years that I've been handling the mail here at linux.org, I've had to handle thousands of queries on a wide range of Linux topics. There is a good percentage of messages that are angry in tone and express a great deal of frustration with Linux.
