Organizations that gather and store critical information have to protect it. While there are tried and true techniques for data protection, there are also new and innovative ones. These new practices and tools greatly enhance an organization's ability to protect mission-critical data. Linux and Open Source users are specially challenged when trying to take advantage of much of this new technology.
Having tools to assist the satisfying of impossible demands helps. KDE has a Kiosk mode that allows you to create and replicate a fully-customized desktop, with options to lock down various bits to prevent users from changing them.
Mediainlinux is a Knoppix-based live CD with a wide collection of open source audio, video and graphics software. Phoronix has some great screenshots.
StillSecure attached six computers - loaded with different versions of the Windows, Linux and Apple's Macintosh operating systems - earlier this month to the Internet without anti-virus software.
The results show the Internet is a very rough place.
Linux, once thought of as just a server play, is poised to reap $100 million this year as an embedded operating system, according to a new research report.
In the article "My sysadmin toolbox" NewsForge asked readers to "let us know about your most valuable utilities." Well, here are mine.
The developers of Mandriva Linux have quietly released what appears to be a public beta of Mandriva Linux 2006.1. This release comes with many updated packages.
The advent of the personal computer offered the first opportunity for enterprising software and hardware developers to create widely available, and more importantly, affordable systems with accessibility features, or as otherwise known, assistive technology.
A few days ago, the development team released FreeOrion v0.3, the first edition of the game to incorporate production and research. While it's still early on in the development process, v0.3 showcases enough of the design, development, and art behind the project that we felt it was time to come out of hiding.
After a relatively strong second half of 2005, the outlook for the new year is mixed: CIO confidence is modestly declining, demand for IT is expected to fluctuate, yet strong, long-term growth, with no visible prospects for any measurable downturn, is part of the forecast.
Snort is the leading open source Network Intrusion Detection System and is a valuable addition to the security framework at any site. Even if you are employing lots of preventative measures, such as firewalling, patching, etc., a detection system can give you an assurance that your defences truly are effective, or if not, will give you valuable information about what you need to improve.
When ever I have reviewed a Linux distribution I have used, I get one or two comments on PCLinuxOS. And when I wrote an article called "The best Linux distribution of them all", among the 75 or so comments, I got no less than 10 comments talking favorably about PCLinuxOS. Having piqued my curiosity, I decided to download and give PCLinuxOS a test drive.
See Reallylinux.com's top articles for 2005. They range from "Moving to Linux" to "Windows to Linux a Beginner's Guide."

As the year's end draws near, it is customary for journalists to list Top Stories from the year past and to make predictions for the year to come. But those are passive activities. They're what professional bystanders do: play-by-play, color commentary, op-edification. Journalists don't have to stand by any more. Their choices no longer are limited to writing or talking about What's Going On. They can be involved now. They can have effects.
Linux has a number of useful bandwidth monitoring and management programs. A quick search on Freshmeat.net for bandwidth returns a number of applications. However, if all you need is a basic overview of your total bandwidth usage, iptables is all you really need -- and it's already installed if you're using a Linux distribution based on the 2.4.x or 2.6.x kernels.
There can be many methods getting Linux to run on a Windows box. I would always encourage to make the total switch to Linux but there can be good reasons to keep your Windows box intact. Fortunately there are many applications and methods that can allow one to use Linux on a Windows PC.
