Linux Journal Announces Samsung as 2013 Readers' Choice Award Winner
HOUSTON, TX – December 1, 2013 – Belltown Media, Inc., publisher of the award-winning monthly magazine Linux Journal, has announced the winners of its annual Linux Journal Readers' Choice Awards. The 2013 winners appear in the December issue, with awards presented to vendors and organizations in 63 categories, ranging from favorite software development tool to favorite Linux laptop.
Linux Journal's annual Readers' Choice Awards take the pulse of the Linux community, allowing readers to nominate and then ultimately choose their favorites in a number of categories. The voting took place during the months of August and September and was open to everyone. Several thousand individuals voted for their favorite Linux solutions.
Winning in the Best Linux Smartphone Manufacturer category was Samsung.
"As someone with a Samsung phone in his pocket," says Linux Journal Editor Shawn Powers, "it’s not a surprise to see the company dominate as Best Linux Smartphone Manufacturer. Samsung has created some truly beautiful hardware of late, and it doesn’t look like it plans to stop."

“In an industry conceived, created and driven by peers, an accolade from the community is the highest compliment you can get,” said Linux Journal publisher Carlie Fairchild. “The Readers' Choice Awards, like Linux itself, come from actual users. A vote from Linux Journal readers places Samsung in an elite category– that of the very best in our field.”

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
July 20, 2016 12:00 pm CDT
One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

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
