  • EarthWeb Datamation: Case Study: In Redmond's Shadow, An Open (Source) Secret (2001-12-19 12:07:47)
    "The Eastside Journal Web site originally used the Solaris operating system and ran on Sun Microsystems hardware.

  • H. Peter Anvin: It never rains but it pours... [kernel.org server down] (2001-12-19 04:02:09)
    "Well, after spending close to two hours bringing the old kernel.org server back to life it died again after less than 10 minutes. I hereby declare the current zeus.kernel.org officially DEAD. This suddenly meant that getting the new server from Compaq fully provisioned suddenly (and very ill-timedly) became a very high priority. We're still waiting for a set of disk drives from Compaq, so it's not going to happen today or tomorrow."

  • Linux Journal: Perceptions of the Linux OS Among Undergraduate System Administrators (2001-12-19 03:53:49)
    "At the start of this academic year, I informally surveyed the 31 students enrolled in the module about their exposure to Linux. Most (if not all) had some exposure to the OS. I probed further and asked how many students had used Linux as the basis of their third-year project (the previous year). One or two hands were raised. Then the first shock came: someone blurted out, 'nearly everyone who used Linux last year went on to fail their project'."
