I Want You To Win! -- UPDATE: CONTEST NOW OVER
UPDATE #2: The contest is now over. Thanks to everyone for participating. We'll be notifying winners early the week of March 16th. (BTW, the answer was "Kernel Panic")
UPDATE: Now with hot clue action! (See the bottom of this post)
No really, I do. I want everyone to have a subscription to Linux Journal. Well, you can get a year subscription to the digital version absolutely free. FREE. No strings attached. All you have to do is solve a puzzle and fill out a form. And puzzles are fun, so it's like 2 gifts in one. :)
You have to watch videos to find the clues, but they're short videos, so it shouldn't be too painful. Here I'll even give you links to each video. See, now it's like three gifts in one. I just give and give and give...
The contest is for TODAY ONLY!!!! So don't delay, or it's like getting zero gifts. ;)
CLUE 1: The letters unscramble to form 2 separate words, which once unscrambled are clearly Linux related. If you still can't unscramble them, come back this evening around 10PM EDT, and I'll give you one last clue. The 10PM clue will make it super easy. (I TOLD you I wanted everyone to have a subscription!)
CLUE 2: Ok, 2 hours to go before it's over. Don't panic or anything. Let's take the scientific approach that others in the comment thread have taken. I'm fairly certain there are online tools for making anagrams, etc. If a person were to put the collected letters into such a beast -- they'd be certain to generate the 2 words that are very Linux related.
(And if you can't figure it out? Guess!!! Who knows what might happen. :)

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
