Linux Journal Announces Winner of Linux Lunacy Contest

SEATTLE, WA -- SSC Publications, publisher of the award-winning magazine Linux Journal and its bi-monthly sister publication Embedded Linux Journal, is proud to announce that John Sullivan of Virginia was selected from over 200 entries as the winner of Linux Journal's recent contest, "Win a trip for two on Linux Lunacy".

A Linux Journal subscriber since 1998, John Sullivan has also been an avid Linux user for the past five years. This can be proven simply by looking at some of the ways Sullivan has put Linux to work: workstation, webserver, search engine, statistical analysis, and home automation. "I would like to thank all the people and companies who make Linux and Open Source software a viable alternative to proprietary software. It makes my job easier and much more fun," commented Sullivan.

Linux Lunacy, a conference produced by Geek Cruises and Linux Journal, will take place in October 2001 aboard Holland America's Eastern Caribbean cruise. For additional information on this and other conferences by Geek Cruises please visit http://www.geekcruises.com/.

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

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. 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.
