Mark Shuttleworth, millionaire cosmonaut and self-funded Linux guru, has managed to make his Ubuntu project the Linux distribution of choice in just two years. But now the friendly brown OS with the cute drumming noises faces an awkward journey towards the commercial mainstream.
This is Part One of a two part tech tip, which will address the setup of User Mode Linux (UML) for honeypot use. Part Two of the tech tip will cover the containment of intrusions and other security topics that arise while using UML as a honeypot. Also addressed in Part two will be the “forensics” i.e. identifying what exploits were tried on the honeypot.
I've been a system administrator since 1988, working mainly with Solaris and one or two versions of BSD. Here are some of the things I use all the time, including a number of scripts I've written myself to leverage already useful *nix tools; they're not flashy, but they save me a ton of keystrokes.
Having been engineering director at one company that became public, and a founder and CTO of another, as well as a long time professional software engineer working at such companies as Matushita Electric (Panasonic), and even Rand McNally, yes, the people that make maps, I must admit, in all those occupations, I have at most rather infrequently encountered these Microsoft Windows operating systems I hear so many people talking so much about.

Long known for its desktop distribution, Xandros is now getting into the server act with the release of Xandros Server 1.0. One might wonder, what's the point of yet another server-oriented distro when the server market is already well-served? Xandros Server offers a GUI-oriented approach to system administration that should do well with admins familiar with Windows server products.
Operating systems are useless unless applications will run on them. Luckily, both Linux and Windows support a broad variety of applications -- many of which are compatible with both platforms. That said, if you're planning to switch from Windows to Linux -- or Linux to Windows – you need to consider a number of factors when you plan the migration. This article will discuss those factors.
Linux is not Windows. Most users new to Linux forget this and expect Linux to operate exactly as Windows does with the result that they become frustrated. In four hundred and eighty-odd pages Linux Annoyances for Geeks tries to document and answer as many of these possible problems as possible.
When IBM introduced a version of Lotus Notes that runs on the desktop computers using the Linux operating system this month, it was a sign of confidence that open-source software is gaining market traction.
Not long ago, choosing Linux in the data center meant a tradeoff. You had to give up some capabilities in exchange for freedom from Microsoft lock-in. But that has changed. These days the features of Windows and Linux stack up against each other very competitively. For the most part, administrators can choose Linux or Windows today without losing out.
