Linux Journal Searches for the Ultimate Linux Fanatic
Linux Journal recently ran a web article that posed the question, "Are you a Linux waif?" (http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=5868). This article struck close to home for many readers and became one of the most commented articles on the site, with people writing in to share their own Linux waif stories.
In the spirit of MTV's Fanatic we will be hosting a contest to discover the most dedicated Linux devotee. If you can prove to us that you are the superlative Linux zealot you will win complimentary passage on the Linux Lunacy 2002 Caribbean cruise (http://www.geekcruises.com/) and a chance to meet some of the most renowned people in the Linux and Open Source communities including Linus Torvalds, Ted Ts'o and Guido van Rossum. Ports of call include Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and Holland-America's private Caribbean island, Half Moon Cay.
To enter simply submit some kind of physical evidence of your Linux ardor to:
Linux Fanaticc/o Linux JournalPO Box 55549Seattle, WA 98155-0549
Submissions must be received by July 5, 2002. The grand prize winner and two runners-up will be announced in the September issue of Linux Journal and featured on the Linux Journal web site.
Example forms of submission are essay, video, photographs or any combination thereof. For instance, a short movie of you wearing your penguin pajamas to a five-star restaurant while trying to show the waiter how to hack the restaurant's point-of-sale system (running embedded Linux) to keep a more "accurate" account of tips would probably make you a major contender.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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
