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

windows unix  trumpeting the superiority of Windows 2000. Unix includes NFS, telnet, and Korn free of charge. How, pray tell, is Windows better if you have to pay more and download an extra product not included on the installation CD? There's already competition that beats Microsoft on price and performance. As a result, SFU, as a separate product, is probably DOA. BEGINLYX�

Windows Terminal Services and Citrix ICA both provide methods for remote screen sharing and input control, derived from the International Telecommunications Union's (ITU) T.120 standard. Terminal emulations usually provide character-based simulations of traditional mainframe host hardware terminals, such as VT-100 or IBM 3270. XWindows, originally developed for Unix and then ported to Linux, provides a local graphic interface to programs that actually execute on a remote Read More

Windows 2000: Paragon for Partisans, Skewered by Skeptics


After a wait of more than a year, Windows 2000 (The OS Formerly Known as "NT 5.0") was made available to the public on February 17th.

windows unix  February 17th, Microsoft delivered Windows 2000, the long-delayed, de-featured operating system successor to Windows NT 4.0. Initial acceptance is expected to be lower than for earlier releases of consumer operating systems, such as Windows 95. However, Microsoft officials said nothing had changed in their forecasts for the product and, indeed, the lowered expectations make it easier for the company to exceed them. We don't expect the 'midnight madness' thing of Windows 95 to happen, said Keith White, Read More

No Back Doors. No Open Windows.


To boot or pre-boot, that is the question. There’s no doubt that operating systems (OSs) are complicated given the sheer amount of code that must be flawlessly interfaced and the potential vulnerabilities that can ensue. While full disk encryption (FDE) is one step closer to a more secure OS, encryption without strong authentication isn’t enough. For security-conscious users, pre-boot authentication is the only way to go.

Workload Automation: The Key to Managing Windows Server Sprawl


Many companies use data centers running processes across multiple Windows servers using built-in schedulers instead of automating nightly batch streams on a mainframe. Simple schedulers work well on individual servers with only a handful of tasks, but scheduling becomes more difficult once you include dependencies, such as incoming files, the behavior of other applications, or the completion of business processes on other servers. Workload automation using a job scheduling system can save money and reduce complexity in the long term—read this white paper to learn more about solutions to "server sprawl".

How MWL Fights E-threats


When you connect to the Internet, you do so through the Windows Socket (Winsock) layer. While this layer is an integral part of the Windows operating system and acts as an interface between your computer and the Net, it cannot distinguish the difference between good traffic and bad. MicroWorld Winsock Layer (MWL) technology helps by sitting on the Winsock layer and analyzing the traffic—before it gets to your computer.

Host-to-Windows Printing: Brooks Internet Software


A major challenge for IT managers is that much of the data they need in Windows environments is stored in iSeries and Mainframe host systems. Traditionally, unlocking this data and making it available in Windows environments for further processing has involved major reprogram¬ming, and significant resource investments. There are, however, simple solutions that address the jump from host to Windows.
