ROOT: An Object-Oriented Data Analysis Framework
Analyzing the FTP logs of the more than 9,300 downloads of the ROOT binaries reveals the popularity of the different computing platforms in the mainly scientific community. Figure 4 shows the number of ROOT binaries downloaded per platform.
Linux is the clear leader, followed by the Microsoft platforms (Windows 95 and NT together equal Linux). The results for the other UNIX machines should probably be corrected a bit, since many machines are multi-user machines where a single download by a system manager will cover more than one user. Linux and Windows are typical single-user environments.
In this article I've given an overview of some of the main features of the ROOT data-handling system. However, many aspects and features of the system remain uncovered, such as the client/server classes (the TSocket, TServerSocket, TMonitor and TMessage classes), how to automatically generate HTML documentation (using the THtml class), remote database access (via the rootd daemon), advanced 3D graphics, etc. More on these topics can be found on the ROOT web site.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
