Product Review: Corel's NetWinder

 in
A review of this networking computer from Canada.
Final Impressions

The NetWinder seems like a good bet and I'm going to keep a close eye on how this product plays out. What you need to do is decide which NetWinder will suit your needs. In order to satisfy my current customer's needs, I'd most likely turn to the GS when it becomes available.

The NetWinder is small and fast and its power consumption is minimal. It looks slick. Best of all, NetWinder runs on Linux.

For the fan, run:

This will keep the fan on its normal speed (not as loud) until it reaches 50 C. Also make sure you keep it venalated.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.
