  • NewsForge: Sunset for Cobalt? (2000-09-27 19:26:36)
    "Among the most amazing aspects of the deal was that Scott MacNealy paid top dollar for a very small (300 person) money-losing company. Sun has bought relatively few firms and usually acquired them at bargain basement prices. A couple of the analysts I spoke to suggested that Cobalt had been shopping itself to several would-be buyers, and that Sun was simply the high bidder. As evidence they pointed to the flurry of recent announcements involving Cobalt, and firms like Yahoo and IBM, and the fact that Sun COO Zander was in Boston rather than home at the time the announcement was made. They suggested that Sun simply needed the company more than IBM or any of the other IT and communications hardware vendors. Rumors had been flying about a deal for some time. Zander admitted, 'This announcement shouldn't come as any surprise.'"

    "It is possible to set up a software firewall in Linux, to turn off the multitude of services that distributions maniacally start by default, and to install software designed to prevent cracking and to report it if it has taken place. I have some of that installed (though not a firewall), but as they say in the military, my confidence level was not high -- good enough, maybe, for a dialup, but not for a permanent connection."

  • AllLinuxDevices: Samsung Chooses Red Hat to Create Open Source Tools for Next-Gen, Low Power Chip (2000-09-27 11:59:33)
    "Under the terms of this agreement, Red Hat will provide Samsung with a version of its industry-leading open source GNUPro development tool compatible with the extremely low powered 32-bit and 16-bit CalmRISC line of processors, opening the way for the development of a new generation of ubiquitous consumer devices that are portable and power-efficient."

  • Apache Today: The Apache Web Server Documentation Project (2000-09-27 10:05:00)
    "Over the years, a lot of people have become interested in the idea of contributing to the Apache HTTP Server project, but have hung back or remained silent because they felt only hardcore C programmers with tons of experience need apply. Some actually have contacted the Project, saying they'd like to help out but don't have the coding skills and so didn't know what they could do. And some have offered specifically to help out on the documentation, either translating it, or correcting technical nits, or improving its readability or navigability. In July of 2000, however, the Apache HTTP server project created a subproject and reorganised the documentation files so that they can be worked on directly by non-programmers. This article describes more about this, and how you can get involved."
