Gosh, There’s a Bug in Windows 98
There’s a system security hole that can crash your Windows 95 or 98 system. How long has it taken Microsoft to fix it? Three months and counting.
vendors, such as Red Hat (NASDAQ:RHAT) to distinguish their level of product support from Microsoft's offerings. User Recommendations We believe this is yet another reason to favor the Windows NT/2000 operating system family instead of Windows 95/98/Me. It also underlines the importance of antivirus software for corporate email systems. Monitor http://www.microsoft.com/security, or BugNet for a patch. (Let's hope it's not called Windows Me.)

Microsoft Windows Services For Unix - SFU = DOA?
Microsoft is about to start charging US$149 for its limited collection of Unix-compatible utilities for Windows NT/2000 clients. We forecast a minimal market
UNIX 5.0, and Red Hat Linux 6.1. Microsoft's earlier version of SFU was a free download. SFU 2.0 will retail for US$ 149. When SFU 1.0 was free, it was hard to beat it on price/performance issues. However, at its current price, it's competing with richer solutions from other vendors. For example, Xlink's Omni-NFS Enterprise offers additional terminal and printer modes, and XLink has committed to matching or beating Microsoft on price. And there are better products in the market.

as Sendmail and Red Hat packaged mail services, the need for Notes on Linux is minimal. The advantage of Notes is strong database functionality and workflow. Presently most Linux mail and Internet Server usage are predominantly chosen for stability and cost. Given the high cost of Notes as an enterprise solution, users should fully evaluate alternatives presently on the market. If your business requires strong database and groupware functionality, Notes is an extremely viable solution. If not, examine

With printer fleet management tools, companies gain a competitive advantage and save on printing costs.
Call Center Protocols: Getting Problems Solved!
Customer support agents (CSAs) are the first line of support for the client when a problem arises. If a level-1 CSA has tried all introductory problem-solving
with outsourced support is that sometimes the actual support offered is average at best, and sometimes there is a language barrier, which is frustrating to the client calling in at the other end. Every organization has its own SLA numbering scheme, and the time it takes to resolve an issue is given a set number of hours or days, depending on if the problem is business-critical, where the company is losing revenue, or the number of people affected by the problem. Then there are lower (less severe) issues
The Whitelisting of America: Security for IT
Once upon a time around 1995, the well-known American agency, the National Security Agency (NSA), decided that there was no computer operating system that was
versions and in Red Hat Linux since 2000 and in SUSE Linux since 2005. Whitelisting is proven. More recently (2008), this capability is still not present in Microsoft operating systems. As a result, third-party vendors are looking at the Linux successes and asking Why not? Several competing vendors have recognized that if Linux systems can do it, then so can they do it for the Microsoft platforms. Several companies have brought their whitelist product to market. Each has developed its own whitelisting f
