  • Electronic Commerce Guide: The Cold War Bits -- Part II (2000-05-28 18:19:17)
    "Security is another issue where open source handily beats closed systems.

In closed systems, how do you know what is being sent back? You really don't."

  • Linux.com: Taking the Plunge: Compiling the Kernel (2000-05-28 05:08:25)
    "It's always a good idea to recompile your kernel after you install Linux. Why? The "stock" kernel that is installed is somewhat bloated, because it tries to support a wide range of hardware. Also, it may not contain support for a certain feature that you require, such as IP Masquerading (using a Linux computer as a "gateway" in order to share an Internet connection)."
