Tonight LIVE on www.thelinuxshow.com

At 6pm pst, 7pm rmt, 8pm cst, and 9pm east.... Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, PJ Hyett, Doc Searls(Linux Journal), and Arne Flones have another great show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!!

In Segment One - Hot News: We will have an expanded news segment this week and as usual will be covering the hot Linux news of the week. In Segments Two- Jabber in the news:
We will be joined by Andre Durand , founder of the Jabber Project. We will discus the success that Jabber has had in the last couple months following the release of the Jabber Commercial Server.

The Jabber Commercial Server (or JCS) v2.0 provides a scalable IM platform for the corporation capable of handling over 200,000 concurrent users. The server supports multiple CPU/server configurations; advanced and custom user authentication methods; opt-in user presence control; hidden IPs for users; and of course text messaging, including conferencing and store-and-forward features. In addition to its overall functionality, the Jabber Server architecture supports the development and implementation of plug-in gateways providing the ability to communicate with other IM services (Yahoo, MSN, AIM, etc.) or RSS news feeds.

In Segments Three- SuSe Goes to School:
Joining us tonight will be Dirk Hohndel and Jay Migliaccio from SuSE Linux. SuSE Linux announced last Wednesday SuSE's Free Linux Program for US High Schools. Administrators, IT specialist or teachers of computer science at secondary educational institutions are invited to participate in the program immediately. The announcement is part of an ongoing campaign to make open source computing the IT standard for operating systems and applications worldwide. Initially, SuSE will sponsor more than 2,000 boxes of SuSE Linux throughout US public and private high schools.
