Tonight LIVE on www.thelinuxshow.com

At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, PJ Hyett, Doc Searls(Linux Journal), and Arne Flones have what looks to be a fun show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!! (and yes the Loki tribes server is up and running)

In Segment One - Hot News: We will be covering the hot Linux news of the week. In particular, we will talk about the TV Linux Alliance and the participation in this group by Lineo.

In Segments Two- "The Ripley Project"- wearble Linux Technology
We will be joined by Cliff Leong of ZeroSpin Inc. and we will be discussing the Ripley Wearable Computer development project. We were prompted to contact Cliff after posting an article about the progress of Ripley posted at Linux Devices web portal.

Ripley has progressed farther than we expected and has released their Ripley Version 3 based upon 4 boards. This is very cool and pure un-altered geek.

In Segments Three- Mike O'Dell talks about Linux and Bynari being named an IBM Business Partner
We will be joined by Mike O'Dell CEO of Bynari(www.bynari.net). Prior to becoming Bynari's CEO, Mike started his IT Career at IBM and helped bring UNIXto IBM in the form of AIX. He ran the LAN products group for IBM.

Mike and a few co-horts then went off to a little startup called Dell Computers and grew that business to $7.5 billion in sales. When he decided to move to Dallas to be closer to his family, he went from board member to CEO of Bynari.

Mike's a graduate of the US Naval Academy, where is also did his MIS in Computer Science and created a process for Commercial UNIX as part of his thesis. He left the Navy as a Commander(what, not a seal? is this guy a slacker?).

We will discuss the very recent new of Bynari being named as an IBM Business Partner due in no small measure to the success of Bynari's Insight Server On June 7th, Bynari announced that it has been selected as an IBM eServer z900 and S/390 Business Partner. As an IBM Business Partner, Bynari will gain greater visibility among IBM customers for the Bynari Insight Server.

For those who do not know, Insight Server is a Linux software solution that provides Internet standards-based email and workgroup collaboration capabilities to connected desktop computers. For example, Insight Server allows Microsoft Outlook desktops to communicate and collaborate on a peer-to-peer basis without using Microsoft's Exchange server. Insight Server for the z900 and S/390 claims to offer a viable and cost-effective alternative to other popular messaging solutions and delivers much higher levels of scalability and availability (TLS does not know this for a fact because we have never used the product ourselves). Enterprises with a large population of email and workgroup collaboration users will recognize significant total cost of ownership benefits through server consolidation with an IBM-Bynari solution."

Bynari also offers Insight Server in an entry level version for small to medium size businesses wanting functionality similar to Microsoft Exchange. Additionally, Bynari offers its Insight client software product, which provides features similar to Microsoft Outlook for the Linux desktop.

Bynari is a privately held company headquartered in Dallas, TX. The Company designs, develops and markets Open Standards-based software products based on Linux and UNIX which provide advanced messaging, email and workgroup collaboration capabilities for a number of different operating environments. More information on Bynari and its products is available at www.bynari.net.
