Say you have a nasty application on your Apache webserver that has been installed by some people from the marketing department and you can neither remove nor patch it. Maybe it is a time problem, a lack of know-how, a lack of source-code, or possibly even political reasons. Consequently you need to protect it without touching it. There is ModSecurity, but they say this is only for experts. A straightforward alternative is Remo, a graphical rule editor for ModSecurity that comes with a whitelist approach.
blogs.ittoolbox.com: Some files in Linux are named so cryptically that you have no way of working or even guessing what at they do. There a range of files and maybe directories that start with ld.so in the /etc directory that fall into this category. I intend to explain these files and directories and show how to use them.

All about Linux: What does it take to start writing programs for Linux ? Most people will guess a text editor, knowledge of a programming language and the compiler and libraries of that language would suffice. But ask a professional programmer who has been writing code for Linux and he will differ with you.

pcburn: 4Front Technologies will be releasing their Open Sound System drivers under the GPL v2 and CDDL licenses. Their post on the OpenSolaris forum gives a quick rundown of the plan.
iTWire: Why would the world's second-ranked PC seller make an effort to sell an operating system that it's never sold before on custom hardware - and do it in a half-hearted manner? Why would it do this at a time when it's desperately trying to regain its number 1 ranking?

Blog of Gentoo: In my previous posts I stated that I'd like to help people to spice their system and move from Windows to Linux. But we all know that it cannot be done in an instant.

opensourcelearning: PCLinuxOS released it’s most recent incarnation and has even succeeded to surpass Ubuntu in popularity with (if we use the Distrowatch ranking as an indication of that). With it’s roots solidly in Madriva and dedicated to be even more userfriendly it does deserve a closer look.
