A Windows instructor teaching Linux to students who are new to computers?

Posted 02-09-2006 at 11:03 AM by jpatton

Am I the only one who finds this mildly humorous? I doubt it, to be honest, I have used various distributions of Linux on and off for the past several years, but where I earn my paycheck's is in teaching Windows.

A couple of years ago I got hired by a college, to teach Windows classes which was fine, I taught the students the in's and out's of Windows, and since I had been doing this for the past 8 years, I could about teach those classes in my sleep, and between you and me, I can't...

Life with GNU/Linux/Slackware

Posted 02-08-2006 at 09:08 AM by cwwilson721

Constructing "ZoneAlarm for Linux"?

Posted 02-02-2006 at 07:13 PM by unSpawn

Usually members tend to tell OP's any firewall handling matters should be done using a front-end if Netfilter-fu is low, but basically that's it. IIRC that too LInux-centric a view: it is not all ZoneAlarm provides. As far as I can remember it checks if the binary has changed, looks up if it's allowed to use the network and if it is allowed to act as server and/or client.
