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 Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
