Lantronix ManageLinx Remote Device Solution a Mixed Bag
,----[ Quote ]
| The system comprises—at a minimum—two DSCes and one DSM. The DSM is a 1U
| proxy connection point, directory service, and Web-based management system.
| Essentially a Linux server, the DSM is the brains of the operation,
| configuring and monitoring DSCes, setting up automated device discovery on
| remote networks, keeping track of how to connect to each DSC, and building
| secure SSH tunnels over TCP/IP.
MS struggles to discredit Linux
,----[ Quote ]
| What's cheaper than an OS you can buy outright once and install on every PC
| in your shop -- and upgrade cost-free for eternity to boot? Why, a slew of
| cheesy licenses for Microsoft Windows, 'Doze Division VP Brian Valentine
| claims in his latest cheerleading effort for his sales associates.
| That's right; a putatively independent analysis by 'we'll-conclude-anything'
| whores DH Brown is going to rip Linux a new one and find that Windows is
| actually cheaper. How Valentine knows this is anyone's guess. Perhaps he has
| a mole in the Brown organization as good as the one we have in his. Or
| perhaps MS simply paid for it. We don't know.
| It also appears that MS has bought off a number of Linux/Sun 'insiders' whose
| job it will be to explain to the sales team how to pitch the illusory
| advantages of Windows to unsuspecting IT managers. "Dumber people can run
| Windows" is the best advert I personally can come up with, though this is
| without the benefit of expensive analysts and turncoat 'insiders' to feed me
| intriguing tidbits.
