this give-away idea is pretty cool. too bad i hadn't heard about this until the cider kit give away day. this would be a handy prize to win, but cannot compete with my 5 gallons of homebrew cider currently fermenting in a 5 gallon carboy in my kitchen... but i must say its good to see someone pushing the fine hobby of homebrewing on others the same way i do with linux.

the 2 best things in life are homebrewed beer/cider and linux/bsd.
awesome selection of prizes, excepting the windows only voip thing.

The check box is for the newsletter. It does indeed work -- I just tested it all around here and all is well.

As for the supplement (it's actually a free issue of LJ and not a supplement, just FYI), simply follow the link that reads "Prefer to enter the daily giveaway drawing without downloading Linux Journal? Click here." and you will not be given the free issue of Linux Journal.

Hope that helps!

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.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. 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.
