It's worth to read some news in comp.os.linux.announce
Somebody asked me about Linux sysadmin training in this area at the
Installfest. Here is one possibility:
****Linux Boot Camp Training******
*Understanding & Administering Linux
January 12-13, 1999 San Jose, CA and more ....
I don't know those people so take your chance. I hope you don't mind I
mention it here. We discussed this issue somewhat some time back.
There is a lot of commercial stuf in c.o.l.a. for corp folks to check the
alternative software solutions before they blindly rush to MonopolySoft.
"TIM O'REILLY SENDS AN "OPEN LETTER TO MICROSOFT"" in response to Eric's
"Halloween Document". Good points:
"I'm not just talking about new information businesses like Expedia. You
have only to look at your two major breadwinners, the Windows operating
system and the Office application suite, to see the positive impact of
Open Source on your bottom line. Internet-enabling Windows and Office
has been the major source of new features that make it worthwhile for
customers to buy new systems or upgrade their applications. Lacking the
Internet, you would have had to rely on such dubious innovations as
Microsoft Bob to drive upgrade revenue. And now you want to undermine
Open Source? Try to be serious!"
Not just serious but responsible awell. Corporations make strategy
decissions based on what their tools (i.e. operating system, compilers,
applications) can do on it's own and interactively with other businesses.
There must be a common ground for different systems and apps to talk to
Enjoy suny weekend. I have to work :-(
