 Linux Certification Group Launches Survey

April 1, 1999 -- The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) today announced the launch of a survey to be taken by Linux system administrators. The survey's results will be used in the development of a professional certification program.

This survey (located on the web at http://www.lpi.org/cgi-bin/jass.py) is open to the public, and all Linux administrators are encouraged to participate.

"We have always been a community organization," said LPI executive director Evan Leibovitch. "The survey is just a continuation of our open process, and commitment to meet the needs of Linux users."

The survey takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete. Running until mid-April, its data will assist the LPI in designing the exam-based program it will use to certify Linux professionals. It is one of the early steps in the development of the LPI's three-level program, detailed at its website at http://www.lpi.org/.

The LPI is a non-profit, vendor-independent organization with more than 200 participants.

 Debian Touts Integrated SGML Environment

Date: Tue, 30 Mar 1999 10:41:44 -0500 Debian's 2.1 distribution, now in release, features integrated SGML, XML, and DSSSL infrastructure and packages. Debian's innovative SGML subsystem positions Debian as a premier platform for SGML and XML developers, offering a complete working toolset for documenters and markup programmers with no manual setup required.


We believe that Debian's open model of participation and committment to system quality (as reflected in the Debian Policy http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/) puts Debian head-and-shoulders above other commercial or free systems. SGML integration efforts continue apace in the unstable distribution, including DocBook 3.1, DocBk XML, TEI, and more DTDs.

 HP OpenMail/VirtualVault news

PALO ALTO, Calif., March 30, 1999 -- Hewlett-Packard Company today announced a new program that combines HP OpenMail with the HP VirtualVault trusted Web platform, enabling organizations to reduce the costs of supporting remote e-mail users dramatically while greatly simplifying access.

The integration of OpenMail and VirtualVault eliminates the need for remote users to rely on dial-up networking or carry a laptop to access e-mail from remote locations. OpenMail users simply access an SSL-secured URL from any device with an Internet browser, including PDAs, Web phones, walk-up terminals and PCs. The browser accesses OpenMail Web client software located on a VirtualVault server. The server then connects users to their OpenMail accounts on OpenMail servers inside the corporate firewall.

With this solution, companies can reduce their investment in remote-access systems, private networking, and associated support and help-desk staff. HP estimates that it can cost organizations up to $500 annually to support a remote user. By using OpenMail with VirtualVault, organizations can reduce these costs by as much as 75 percent.

 Salon Adopts Linux

San Francisco, April 5 -- Salon.com ( http://www.salon.com/), formerly known as Salon Magazine, has adopted Linux as its enterprise Internet server platform. The adoption of Linux, and the new Web address, coincide with a site redesign that launched today.

The server platform has moved from Windows NT to a customized version of the Red Hat 5.2 distribution of Linux. The site is moving its critical business functions, Web serving and ad serving to the Linux platform in order to support Salon.com's growing needs.

Says Chad Dickerson, Vice President of Technology, "For a growing company like Salon, Linux is the best of all worlds. It's a proven technology, it's low cost and high performance, and it's broadly supported. The robustness and stability of the Linux operating system make it ideal for mission-critical applications."

According to Dickerson, Linux will provide a solid technical backbone to support Salon's move from a magazine-based model to a network of web sites. The site redesign needs the versatility and power of Linux to keep pace with its growing business and e-commerce needs.

A key factor in the decision to adopt Linux was the availability of Real Media's industry-leading Open Ad Stream advertising software for use with Linux and the Apache web server.

 The Independence Distribution

Date: Sun, 7 Mar 1999 20:52:15 GMT
We have a dream: spreding Linux between the masses. This requires making it easy to use. But it also requires to start thinking in those people who are not using or will not be using Linux as a traditional Unix. In those people who have to administer the box before knowing the simplest of the Unix commands. In those who will be using it at home and have a different idea of fun than C programming. It will require to stop thinking everyone is in a LAN or the box is powered up 24h a day. It will require to stop thinking Linux will be used only as a server or a programmers workstation.

The high cost of Unix banned it outside many areas of use. Linux can go where Unix never went but fulfilling those differents needs will not be reached by designing Linux distributions as just a cheap version of UNIX.

The Independence distribution is licensed under the GPL. It is developped not for profit by a small group of volunteers. Not for profit means we don't ourselves distribute it on CDROM but we will help anyone interested in doing it. Small group means you can make a difference if you contribute.

 Linux on Quad 750 PPC SBC

March 1, 1999, San Diego, CA -- Synergy Microsystems, Inc. today announced that it has successfully run Linux with Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) on a quad-PowerPC 750 CPU board, running at 433 MHz. SMP allows the operating system to dynamically balance the processing load among the four processors. This allows the most efficient use of the four processors, resulting in performance up to four times faster than a single-processor board. This is the first time this level of performance has been achieved, and the first time Linux has been offered on a VMEbus single board computer.

The PowerPC 750 is currently available at speeds as high as 433 MHz. In addition, the processor features its own private L2 cache that can be accessed at up to 300 MHz. Four such processors in a system provide a very powerful compute engine for high-end general-purpose needs, digital signal processing (DSP), array processing and server applications.
