Linux distribution migration: Planning for efficiency

,----[ Quote ]
| Migrating Linux is mostly about migrating 
| services. To do this properly, there are 
| two approaches. You can find out yourself 
| what needs to be done, or you can use 
| tools that analyze this for you. Apart 
| from the services involved, migrating 
| Linux is also about smoothly transitioning 
| from one environment to another 
| environment, without involving double work 
| for your IT environment. If you have the 
| appropriate system management tools in 
| place, they can be very helpful. Finally, 
| depending on the Linux distributions that 
| you were using and that you are going to 
| use, these might be a financial chapter as 
| well. Check this with the new vendor of 
| your choice. This vendor is going to earn 
| your money and may be more than willing to 
| help. 


When It Comes to Security, Openness Isn't Always a Virtue - Rebuttals

,----[ Quote ]
| So what does it all mean? The transparency 
| of free and open source software is 
| increasingly recognized as an important 
| benefit -- even by experts studying 
| software security, and even when they 
| uncover occasional vulnerabilities.
| The "security through obscurity" argument 
| may still be frequently uttered by those 
| on the pro-proprietary side, but -- at 
| least, based on this debate -- it lacks 
| substance. Indeed, given the financial 
| stakes for those on the proprietary side, 
| one could easily make the case that a 
| certain amount of FUD is to be expected.
| The growing ranks of FOSS proponents, 
| then, should be heartened. When it comes 
| to security, free and open source software 
| has been held up, scrutinized, and 
| declared superior.



Latest Microsoft Patch Wreaks Havoc on Sharepoint

,----[ Quote ]
| snydeq writes "Microsoft's latest Black
| Tuesday SharePoint patch is causing Windows
| SharePoint Servers to lock up, according to
| a report from InfoWorld. There does not
| appear to be a single solution to the
| problem, which Microsoft has yet to
| officially acknowledge. Compounding the
| problem is a bug that prevents patch KB
| 983444 from being uninstalled. 'Patching
| gurus recommend that anyone who's
| encountered this problem call Microsoft
| support and file a problem report.
| Immediately. Until the level of clamor
| reaches a critical point, Microsoft may not
| have sufficient impetus to fix the patch.'"


June 'Black Tuesday' patch causes SharePoint woes

| and getting them back up isn't easy
