Linux has made major inroads on servers and in data centres running both open-source and proprietary applications on millions of computers worldwide. We've recently seen the rise of Linux on mobile devices. But the Linux desktop remains elusive. We know it's out there, but it only now seems to be approaching the tipping point.

I'm only an amateur systems administrator, but I'm also terribly lazy, so I do have a few good tools in my toolbox.
I work for Mandriva. However, all these tools except Urpmi are available and usable on any distribution. Even Urpmi could potentially work on any distribution, if you set up a correct package source.
Media reports circulating about the threat posed by a Linux worm called Mare.D have been written off as little more than the result of a "slow news week" by one leading antivirus expert.
FOSDEM takes place on the 25th and 26th of February 2006 in Brussels, Belgium (see http://www.fosdem.org for more info). You are all invited to take part in the largest Free Software and Open Source event.
Is Dell is on its way to becoming the first tier-one PC vendor to offer a mainstream business Linux desktop to US customers? It's starting to look that way.
Microsoft has publicly passed a key milestone on the road to launching its new operating system. This release of Vista is "feature-complete", the company says, meaning that all of the fundamental capabilities that Vista will eventually offer are now baked in.
Most free and open source developers participate in FOSS projects to learn and develop new skills, Rishab Ghosh of Maastricht University, told the Idlelo2 conference in Kenya this morning.
The next version of Red Hat's Fedora Linux will include software to give the operating system some of the eye candy of a rival Novell project--but it will use a less intrusive mechanism, advocates say
In the end, I can honestly say that Ubuntu seems to be worthy of much of it's hype. It really is a solid, reliable and easy to use desktop Linux. Once the installer has been simplified and if the Ubuntu team addresses the multi-media issues, it may well be worthy of all of the hype.
One of the popular Linux patch management systems is based on the Advanced Package Tool, known as apt. While it was developed for Debian Linux, it is the standard patch management tool for a number of Debian and Red Hat-based distributions, including Knoppix, Xandros, and even the Lineox rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. But if you prefer apt, the associated tools can be installed on most Linux distributions.
Looking at open source from the VAR's or integrator's point of view, the Deloitte executives suggest - not so surprisingly - that the rise of open source could sharply reduce R&D costs, giving specialists the opportunity to really dive into development of their niche capabilities and not the more established features.

Apache server performance can be improved by adding additional hardware resources such as RAM, faster CPU etc.. But, most of the time, the same result can be achieved by custom configuration of the server. This article looks into getting maximum performance out of Apache with the existing hardware resources, specifically on the Linux systems.
If you have control over your DNS you can setup 'wildcard hosting', which means you can have a webserver accept connections for any given subdomain. This can be enormously useful for community websites, or other hosting purposes.
For months, years, it's all been about what SCO could discover about IBM, Linux, and Unix. The shoe's on the other foot now, as the US District Court in Utah has revealed that IBM has launched discovery motions against Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard, and BayStar Capital.
