Today, Fibre Channel is the dominant enterprise storage technology, but as with all technologies, eventually something better comes along. If you're lucky, that something is also less complex and less expensive.

Here's how you can set up a test server to provide shared storage using AoE.

I am sure you have heard the popular saying - "A picture is worth a thousand words". It is always nice to have a medium to show people how a particular task is done.

Gaming

Doom 3 was highly anticipated, well reviewed, and then mysteriously to me, slated by your average gamer. I really enjoyed the game, and have spent two years wondering if actually, I was just an id fanboy, or if I did really like it.

Time for Coders to Get Political?

Filed under
Software

When I interviewed Richard Stallman back in 1999, he had some interesting thoughts on the subject of freedom: "I'm going to keep working on the free software movement, because I don't see who's going to replace me." Today, Stallman is becoming something of a political activist.

Filed under
Linux

They said it at LinuxWorld in Toronto a few months ago. They’ve buzzed it at analysts, and now the press is saying it to the public. Novell says this is the year of the Linux desktop, and I’m familiar with evidence showing gains in popularity for Linux. Yet, I disagree that this is the year.

However, we were expecting it by the end of June and it seems to be a little late.
