CVS: An Introduction
There are several CVS clients available so you don't have to manipulate CVS from the command line. TkCVS is currently at version 6.4 and requires Tcl/Tk 8.1 or better. Pharmacy, which is currently at version 0.2.1, is part of the GNOME project, while Cervisia, at version 1.0 stable, uses the Qt and KDE libraries. Another client that uses the Qt toolkit is LinCVS, version 0.3. See the Resources section for pointers to these projects.
While CVS is a very powerful tool that allows far-flung developers to collaborate on projects over the Internet, it is also easy to configure and use on a local machine. If you frequently update files and need to keep track of the changes, CVS allows you to build a record of what changes were made.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
