PHP with Apple's Developer Tools
O'Reilly talks about using PHP with Apple's Developer Tools.
"Apple provides a powerful set of developer tools with Mac OS X. Originally developed by NeXT for programmers working with Objective-C, the tools have since evolved for use with a wide range of source languages, including Java, C++, and AppleScript. The Mac OS X developer tools package also includes the system header files and a C compiler, so it is an essential addition for anyone who wants a complete BSD Unix environment. At the heart of Mac OS X's developer tools is a full-featured text editor and IDE called Project Builder."

Linux Jobs: They're Out There
Linux Planet tells us how to get a Linux job.
"Still, bad news and all, there are jobs out there. But, what many would-be Linux workers don't understand is that basic Linux skills alone aren't enough. Typical Linux jobs require programming or networking skills. For example, many of the jobs at the Linux headhunter shop, Hot Linux Jobs require C and C++ skills."

Traffic Engineering: Incoming Traffic
On Lamp talks about Traffic Engineering.
"Because the local router determines the route taken by outgoing packets, it isn't difficult to balance outbound traffic over multiple connections. The situation for inbound traffic is different. There are only a few routes you can influence to shift incoming traffic patterns: one for each address block for each ISP you connect to, instead of tens of thousands for outgoing traffic."

How To Get Hired As An Open-Source Developer
The Open Enterprise tells us how to get hired as an Open-Source developer.
"Cranston-Cuebas handles technical staff hiring for a number of major web sites that are part of the Ticketmaster family, including citysearch.com, ticketmaster.com, evite.com, and resumeamerica.com. These sites are heavily vested in a wide variety of open source technologies, including mod, the Linux operating system, the Apache web server and various Java technolgoies."

Review of LindowsOS 3.0
OSNews has published a thorough review of LindowsOS 3.0, the latest version of the infamous Linux-based OS.

An interesting editorial section is included in the review article, where the author discusses the main reasons why OS geeks don't like Lindows and debunks some of them while she agrees with some other. Overall, this is the most in-depth review of LindowsOS one could find on the web today.

CVS Third-Party Tools
On Lamp takes a look at CVS third-party tools.
"CVS (Concurrent Versioning System) is a popular version control system. It provides many features, and is useful in many situations. It does, however, have its faults. The standard client works from the command line, it doesn't automatically integrate with development environments, and there are useful features it lacks. Not to worry. It's an open source program, and there are a host of third-party utilities that provide features and integration. There are also many graphical clients."

Enterprise Security: The Manager's Defense Guide
The book is rather brief, written in plain English. It deals with too many general issues but still provides good guidelines for those managers who are not too familiar with IT area, or e-security. It can serve as a good reminder but it needs to be expanded with a lot more information. Read more at Help Net Security.

Open-Source Applications
Linux Journal brings us: Open-Source Applications--Not Only for Auxiliary Tasks.
"Over the past few years, the use of open-source software has ceased to be a risky experiment. It no longer necessarily leads to difficulties or losses. Today, open-source applications are installed not only because the company is unable to purchase commercial software, but because the participation of important business software suppliers has given credibility to this form of development in the eyes of managers."

Xandros--Mom's New Linux Desktop
Network Computing takes a look at Xandros.
"Corel Linux has been reinvented as Xandros, a user-friendly flavor of the operating system. I've seen Xandros in action, and while it doesn't signal the end of the road for other desktop OSs, I see it as the on-ramp of a superhighway."

The Open Road: Groupware
Unix Review talks about Groupware.
"Groupware, like "middleware" and other many other buzzwords in the tech industry, is a somewhat ill-defined and nebulous term. For the purposes of my discussion, I'm classifying groupware as any software that is explicitly designed for groups to work together. Mainly, I'm looking at software you'd want to use in your organization's intranet."

A Summary of Desktop Linux Reviews
Extremetech brings us a summary of their Linux reviews.
"Top Distribution: Mandrake Very easy to set up and use by the novice, yet extremely capable and extensible for the experienced user. Mandrake has developed very good "Drak" wizards for all major functions (especially diskdrak, the disk partitioning tool) and has organized them well in their Control Center."

Mandrake 9.0
Linux World talks about Mandrake 9.0.
"The pluses for Mandrake installation are its speed and the absolute ease of obtaining and applying updates. It completely obliterates the Windows contenders in both the update category and the installation of attached devices."
