I sent the correct answer way before the closing of contest but I didn't receive any feedback from LJ. Just because I am from Romania I am not permitted to benefit of free subscription?

No reply to correct answer

No letters today

No letters in today's video. Friday's video only tells you how to and where to submit your unscrambled letters from Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday videos.

Best of luck!

I already subscribe to the magazine which only makes me send money once a year. I'm too old and my time is too precious to play games all week. I like Linux Journal a lot (that's why I subscribe to the mag.) but I don't watch the videos very much -- I would rather have the information in writing. Thanks anyway.

White Paper
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.
