EPUBReader

With our recent transition to a digital-only format, it's now possible to consume Linux Journal in a number of ways. For those so inclined, it's even possible to print each issue and bind it into a paper magazine. (The PDF lends itself quite nicely to that in fact) Electronically speaking, however, it's hard to beat the .epub/.mobi editions.

If you'd like to browse this month's issue without ever leaving your computer, you might want to check out EPUBReader, a Firefox add-on that turns your browser in a mini-library. After installing the add-on, epub files are opened automatically and added to the local epub library. To access your library, simply go to Tools, and select ePub-Catalog. You'll be presented with a list of all your locally stored epub books, and with a simple click, you can be browsing.

EPUBReader includes support for an interactive table of contents, which makes wise use of a computer's widescreen display. It even supports keyboard shortcuts! EPUBReader is free, cross-platform and quite honestly, a really nice e-reader app. Check it out for yourself at http://www.epubread.com.

The best thing about ebook readers is the e-ink surface that, most notably, does *not* feel like reading off of a computer screen.

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?

They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.
