Redhat video training

Posted 12-08-2009 at 10:59 PM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)
Updated 12-08-2009 at 11:02 PM by jaymarting (Make pretty)

Background
I've been in IT for over 4 years now and playing around with linux just over two of those. Ive recently been getting a little more serious about my training as I reported in my entry about my Preplogic training purchase. And while I want to claim that I fight the good fight the reality is that my tiny company is still primarily windows based despite efforts to bring them over to linux.

Issue

Charities and FOSS

Posted 12-08-2009 at 04:37 AM by rich_c

Recently I came across someone asking for advice on software to use as they are in the early stages of running a charity.

Clearly, with FOSS there is the free-as-in-beer element which is important here. With FOSS, charities aren't obliged to pay up front licencing charges but can contribute as and when they are able.

Update for those looking to learn Linux - to a nit-picky degree...

Posted 12-07-2009 at 03:21 PM by kcoriginal

I re-found Red Hat 9 - "Shrike" the other day. The Red Hat site had some seriously detailed manuals that go with that. Clear, large, good.

Red Hat 9, I would call, the first of the modern Linux distributions. I know that Debian was in good shape about that time... but... overall the market-share wasn't so hot for Deb at that time.
