Linux at 25% of Server OS Market - Is Redmond Hearing Footsteps?
Linux has now grabbed 25% of the server operating system market share, passing Novell and knocking on Windows's door.

Users, both current and potential, should try to exert pressure on the key vendors to overcome the 58 varieties syndrome, as well as improving the user-friendliness. Although a number of Linux distributors have been working on improving the ergonomics, this practice must proliferate further. One possible consequence:

OS SmackDown!


In the latest escalation in the battle between Windows and Linux, directions on how to replace each with the other have been published on the Web by their respective champions.

linux os  on how to remove Linux OS and install Windows 2000/NT4 on the newly-freed-up disk drive. Not to be outdone, Linux-philes have countered by publishing instructions on how to remove a Windows OS and replace it with Linux. To close the circle, Paul Ferris, Editor at Linux Today, highlighted the silliness by publishing his own mostly-joking piece on how to uninstall both Windows and Linux. (His directions lead to a wiped out disk drive, of course.) Market Impact Alone, these documents will have minimal Read More

Linux Laptops from Dell


Dell now has begun selling two models of its laptops with Linux preinstalled.

The Inspirons with Linux are available now, but the Latitudes will be available Feb. 4, according to a company representative. The move has been expected since last August. The CPX is the top-of-the-line model of Dell's Latitude line, slimmer and more expensive than the Inspirons, which are designed to be more like replacements for desktop computers. Read More

GNOME Will Try to Buff Up Linux


In its fight to catch up to Windows for desktop mindshare and market share, Linux has received a boost from the Gnome Foundation and a number of key systems manufacturers.

Integration of the Mozilla browser technology into GNOME. Industry leaders to work Read More

IBM Pushes Linux into Appliances


IBM Corp. on Monday said its line of network computer terminals can now run on the alternative software system Linux.

linux os  believe the availability of Linux appliances will help grow the appliance markets, especially if there are cost benefits to having a free OS installed. By some estimates, appliances will outsell PCs within 3-5 years; this growth should be helped by the lower prices expected for Linux-based (vs. Windows-based) machines. User Recommendations Business users committed to Linux may want to consider Network Stations as part of a larger, corporate-wide infrastructure revamping. While having thin clients on Read More

How to Squeeze More Efficiency Out of Your Infrastructure


The Linux operating system is free and stable, delivers solid performance, and often has good vendor support. These advantages have allowed it to garner 60 percent of the Web server market, making it popular among Web hosts as well. Yet despite the obvious advantages, Linux is not fully optimized for Web hosts because it was never designed specifically to address the unique requirements for this market. Find out more.

Our intention is to try to do it with everything. The only limit to community sourcing Sun's software portfolio will occur where the software in q Read More

Intel's "New Best Friend" for Web Appliances is Linux


Intel has announced a brand of Web appliances that don't use Microsoft's Windows operating software. Instead, the new devices will run on the Linux operating system, which many customers are concluding is ideal for simple Web-surfing machines.

linux os  big win for the Linux community. Intel's decision to reduce system costs by eliminating the license fee(s) associated with Windows means MS may be losing out on owning this potentially large market. Compaq's recent decision to use BeOS on its future Internet appliances only compounds Redmond's problems. With the Palm OS owning approximately 80% of the handheld market, with Windows CE a distant second, Microsoft risks being consigned to the middle of the market, with Unix and various enterprise-class OSe Read More

Bristol Technology Ships Win-to-Lin Migration Tool


Bristol Technology, Inc. has announced shipment of its Windows-to-Linux application-migration tool. Bristol's Wind/U for Linux product, which began shipping Tuesday, enables developers to compile Microsoft Win32 API and Microsoft Foundation Class source code directly on Linux, and create native, desktop and server-based Linux applications, according to Bristol.

linux os  the key roadblocks to Linux acceptance is a lack of applications, and providing easy migration will help minimize that issue. This will help diversify the OS market, from the perspective of increasing market share of a smaller player (Linux). With an estimated 100,000 NT-based applications, this is a fertile segment for this type of product. With the growing emphasis on Linux, we expect to see increased competition between Bristol and MainSoft, resulting in increased consumer benefit. User Recommendations Read More
