SUN, MSFT and Linux

Linux, however,
is hurting Sun far more than Microsoft. Solaris is similar to Linux,
which makes it very easy for customers to switch from one to the other.
Migrating from Windows to Linux is a much more fiddly process. As a
result, the technology bosses of companies, whose budgets have been
tight since the dotcom bust, are ditching Sun's computer systems, the
equivalent of Ferraris, for cheaper boxes from Dell, Hewlett-Packard or
IBM that run Linux, the equivalent of Fiats.

Good read on how judas kissed the Sun, why Sun will die and how MS will get better from losing 2x10^6 dollar

All commands, all operating systems

All possible commands on all (well, most, well Linux and others) possible Operating Systems. Excellent site; //

Here are all //linux commands, the downsite being, there is no list of all *nix commands. By nature you can add them yourself, by downloading and compiling or by creating your own.

what is the price of j2ee with a database?

the //performace of a java engine with a database on a sunfire might be hot, you pay the //price! note the linux is the number one!

The missing "FAIL_MAIL_OVER_500_MILES" M-Sexchange checkbox

A great story for those patching sendmail again (and again and again...repeat until postfix is installed :-))

This guy is a great sysadmin. A MSCE from the click-and-drool generation would spend the rest of his/her life trying to find the "Fail mail over 500miles" checkbox/wizzard/reg-entry thingie before reinstalling it again (and if it fails reinstalling again......)

Update...a new sendmail vulnerability...time to patch again :-(. Maybe we can save everybody some time and just include a ROOT_SHELL feature in sendmail 8.13..
