Digital Edition Happy User

Hello.
I'm a LJ subscriber from a lot of years and I wasn't surprised by the migration to the Digital Edition. I know that a lot of people (as my colleagues) like the paper, but I'm used to read manuals in electronic format from more than 15 years and I don't try to expose the pros of the digital newspaper (first at all saving trees, for example, or the search of a particolar word).
It's just a different approach of reading.
Read a digital book is different than a "normal" newspaper.
For example,I use to read the index, to see if some articles are of my particular interest and then I read those directly. After that I start from beginning and go to the end (just because other articles may be useful but I have never follow that).
Anyway, the "problem" of the digital edition is not paper or not, is to change the mind also starting from the approach to read LJ, and this is what a lot of people refuse.
Anyway I'll be always happy when LJ arrives, in any kind of mailbox I will receive it.
Best Regards.

Linux as a whole is great

AliceS's picture

Linux as a whole is great, and the more people that realize it, the better. If you confuse people by putting them in over their heads at first, it'll just turn them off of linux as a whole (or possibly #!, assuming that since they didn't like it when they were new users, they'll never like it). Overall I see the review (and general approach to reviewing) as positive, just coming from a place of ignorance, which as the husband of a journalist is annoying. I'd say similar things to some youtube video reviewers who get quid in advance, boot the system in a virtual box, then look through the menus and tell you that they like openoffice, and are really pumped that the distro comes with gimp.

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.
