| What is Linux?
| Linux is an operating system like Microsoft 
| Windows, MacOS or Unix. It was created as a 
| hobby by Linus Torvalds, a student at the 
| University of Helsinki in Finland. What 
| many people do not know about Linux is that 
| its source code is available to anyone. The 
| source code for Linux is called the kernel 
| and is the base operating system Linux. 
| Since the source code, or kernel is free, 
| has enabled hundreds of companies and 
| individuals to release their own operating 
| systems based on Linux system. These 
| operating systems or formats are often 
| referred to as Linux distributions.

| Another initiative from our side was to make 
| the Microsoft IT support guys and companies 
| comfortable with linux . We had started 
| conducting the free workshop on open source 
| solutions targeting them. Last workshop was 
| on Zimbra mailing solution.The workshop was 
| designed in such a way that the 
| attendees(mostly MS guys)  after the workshop 
| said to us . They never knew giving mailing 
| solution in Linux was so easy. In this 
| workshops we do not stress to much on ideas 
| behind OS.We show them a solution which they 
| can use, or sell.Here Linux is propagated 
| through this MS IT support guys



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.
