2005 Linux Journal Readers' Choice Awards
The LinuxJournal.com editor would like to point out that the site published “Setting Up Subversion for One or Multiple Projects” back in 2004. Print was snoozing and covering Arch while the Web site was doing the Subversion stuff that was a hit with readers used to CVS-style development. Yay Web!
Virtualization is becoming bigger news these days. VMware lets you run an unmodified guest OS and has been around for longer than the rest, so one or both of these factors matters to voters. If you're new to VMware, we suggest you start by reading “VMware 5 Workstation Edition Reviewed” to get an overview of what it can do. Meanwhile, Xen is a solution that's easy to get started with for Linux-on-Linux setups.
Firefox, so good everyone from our editors to the government recommends you use it. For more under-the-hood stuff, check out Nigel McFarlane's article “Fixing Web Sites with GreaseMonkey” from the October 2005 issue.
Rackspace Managed Hosting
Rackspace won here, although this category didn't collect a ton of votes. It did, however, manage to start a comment debate about a host's responsibilities when its clients are the subject of secret search warrants. (“Final Voting in 2005 Readers' Choice Awards”, see Resources.)
That's it for this year. Let us know what you think of the new voting process. And thanks to the 2,358 of you who voted.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
