Top 10 Open-Source Server Technologies You Need to Know

,----[ Quote ]
| If you think open-source server technologies 
| are limited to Linux distributions, think 
| again. Although these software projects pair 
| well with Linux, it isn't an integral part of 
| any of the 10 listed. Open-source software no 
| longer refers to a Linux-only environment. In 
| fact, open source now crosses all operating 
| system boundaries, so much so, that Microsoft 
| launched its own open-source laboratory called 
| Port 25, and it is a platinum-level sponsor of 
| the Open Source Business Conference in San 
| Francisco. To introduce you to 10 hot server-
| oriented open-source technologies you need to 
| know, I compiled a diverse list of projects 
| and applications for you to discover and 
| explore. Many of these products are free of 
| cost or close to it.


Metasploit Gains Further Commercial Adoption

,----[ Quote ]
| Metasploit is now owned by security firm 
| Rapid7, the company that also integrates 
| Metasploit into their testing tools. This 
| week, security testing firm Core Security 
| announced that they would be integrating 
| support for Metasploit into their Core 
| IMPACT Pro application. Evaluating the 
| impact of the enterprise tool integration of 
| Metasploit depends on a number of factors. 
| It's also not clear whether or not the open 
| source community aspect of Metasploit will 
| enjoy any benefits as a result either.



Linux-based Exchange replacement helps 3 health care systems cut costs

| Postfix e-mail application running on Ubuntu Linux to operate along side the
| Exchange server so that more users could be added at little cost.
