The (computer) World is a Circle

Filed under
Linux

It is a given these days that Linux is making real inroads into the corporate glass house. We (BMC) certainly have a large number of our product lines ported to it, and therefore a wide swath of systems in the R&D data center to support those development efforts. I originally started this weblog last year (and 99 posts ago) to talk about those systems and how we use, maintain, and generally support Linux here.
