Linux Journal Begins July Contest: Beer Trivia

SEATTLE, WA -- SSC Publications, publisher of the award-winning monthly magazine Linux Journal, is pleased to announce the Beer Trivia contest during the month of July.

Participants in the Beer Trivia contest should answer the following question: "How many Linux Journal magazine covers pictured beer on them?" One winner will be randomly selected from all correct submissions and will receive a free, one-year membership to a Beer-of-the-Month club.

The beer prize is only available to residents of the Continental U.S. who are 21 years or older. Anyone not meeting the above criteria is welcome to enter but will receive an alternate prize.

"Just like the slogan 'World Domination,' 'Free Beer' has been one of the rallying cries that unites the Linux community," commented Carlie Fairchild, VP of Marketing & Sales. "This contest will help ensure that the free beer flows while Linux vaults onwards towards world domination."

All entries should be sent via e-mail to contest@linuxjournal.com with "Beer Trivia Contest" as the subject. The deadline for all entries is July 31, 2003, one entry per person, please. For more information about the contest send an e-mail to contest@linuxjournal.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.
