First OSresale.com Auction Closes: Windows NT Workstation 4.0 Sells for $32
The site, sponsored by the open source community's leading publication, Linux Journal, opened in December 2001. Richard Vernon, Linux Journal editor in chief, commented, "...We here at Linux Journal have been thinking about all those folks out there aching to sell that unused software that came with some piece of hardware they purchased and are faced with the difficult task of unloading something they bought and can't use. ...Due to the lack of a proper forum that lets sellers of such software find buyers, we decided to provide OS Resale--an auction site intended as a medium for those looking to rid themselves of unusable software that came with their computers or other hardware."
The recent decision by a California District Court that software bundled and purchased with hardware can be resold was covered in-depth by Linux Journal Technical Editor Don Marti in Softman vs. Adobe. Stay tuned to http://www.linuxjournal.com/ for updates on this ruling.
OSresale.com is open to the public and can be easily accessed via the Internet at http://www.osresale.com/. Users must complete a simple registration process to sell or bid on an item. There is no fee for using OSresale.com, nor does the site receive a commission.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
