Rethinking Windows security: Will Google's move spur others to drop Microsoft?

,----[ Quote ]
| In fact, many find that even when the vast 
| majority of an organizationâs IT 
| infrastructure is made up of non-Microsoft 
| based systems, Microsoft Windows systems 
| make up the majority of maintenance resource 
| expenditures, both for security management 
| and more mundane system administration and 
| troubleshooting. Thanks in part to the 
| nature of Googleâs business and the size and 
| influence of the corporation, it is even 
| likely to be well insulated against any need 
| for compatibility with Microsoft-specific 
| ways of doing things, both internally and 
| externally.


Smoke Screens and Linux

| Why aren't people buying these things so 
| easily anymore? I have the theory that, while 
| the success of Windows was the ignorance of 
| the user, Linux communities teach their users 
| and this knowledge empowers people. After all, 
| in the 21st Century, more computer users are 
| awakening. Little by little, we are breaking 
| this shell of fear and gullibility and we are 
| beginning to see through the smoke generated 
| to make us stumble. We read. We check. We 
| double-check. We participate in forums and get 
| informed.
| Above all, beginner Linux users are abandoning 
| herd mentality. 



Linux Migration: Another Chip Taken out of the Monopoly

,----[ Quote ]
| With the South African government pushing the
| use of open source software and businesses
| realising the benefits of open source, the
| demand for IT staff with Linux skills is
| growing. Fortunately there are a number of
| quality training courses available to IT
| workers eager to upgrade their skills. We
| look at the four best training and
| certification opportunities.
