Black Friday - Shopping for Your Linux Loved Ones
Have a friend or family member who loves Linux? While you're shopping on this Black Friday, consider this shopping list of all things Tux.
The time to send out holiday cards is already here. This Tux holiday card features a watercolor design by a friend of Linux Journal's, Adine. We love to support our local artists. Cards sell for $4.49 each or a pack of 10 for $22.99.
This Tux porcelain ornament is joining my tree this year. $6.99.
Perhaps a Tux key chain will tickle your fancy. $1.99.
Nothing says formal wear like penguin cuff links. $45 for the set.
Your desktop workstation is begging for one: The Tux Penguin PC badge sells for just $1.95.
A Penguin CD Wallet -- oh heck, why not. It's £4.95 and holds 12 CDs.
Tux Droid is a favorite around our office. We like to set him up in the reception room and have him say mildly offensive things to passer-bys. It never fails to amuse to us. Tux Droid, which we have reviewed here on LinuxJournal.com, sells for $149.
Good Evening Mr. Gates, I'll be Your Server Today coffee mug. This was a Penguin Computing advertisement that originally appeared in Linux Journal. The ad quickly became popular and the artwork began appearing on mouse pads and coffee mugs all over. This coffee mug sells for $11.99.
The Penguin Mints guys and Linux Journal go way back. I remember meeting them in our Seattle office in ~1998 explaining to them what Linux was and why we needed several dozens of cases to take to the Atlanta Linux Showcase with us. They were a huge hit then and still are. These caffeinated mints will keep you buzzing and sell for $2.99.
We'd like to think one can't be a Linux enthusiast without a Linux Journal subscription. Not only is each issue filled with the best Linux how-tos but lets face it, having a Linux Journal in your backpack is like a badge of honor, kind of like having an Economist on your coffee table but a magazine you'll actually read! :) Give your friend or loved one a gift subscription today. We'll send you a card in the mail before the holidays so that you can let your gift recipient know their gift subscription from you is on the way.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
