Wrong time for Rahul

Hi Guys,

This event fails to rope in the best speakers. The LinuxForYou team should have instead backed something like the Linux Bangalore 2003, which did not have a media partner. Also, the statement that New Delhi and other surrounding cities by Rahul is completely baseless.

The Software Developer pass is priced at an exhorbitant Rs.10000, per developer for 3 days, which is not possible for a small time developer.

I am not surprised that the biggest bigwigs in the world of GNU/Linux, namely Novell,HP and IBM are showing leukewarm response to it.

More than the ``Freedom`` factor provided by GNU/Linux, this show is going to be more focussed on the ``Price`` factor of it. Such a show can never help the community as it fails to highlight the very basis of it. Iam pretty sure Rahul Chopra didn't mention anything like GNU in in Linux ... or Free Software in his Open Source. This is merely a corporate gimmickry as GNU/Linux has become an interesting money making proposition lately. No wonder Rahul Chopra denied to name his mag GNU/Linux For You despite repeated requests from the community including RMS Himself.

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.

Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
