Linux Journal Contents #160, August 2007
Have we got a cool project for you! We can't bring back the smell and the chaotic sounds of the 80s arcades, but we will show you how to convert an arcade enclosure to provide a Linux-based bonanza of arcade games. Speaking of games, what do you get when you combine racks of PlayStation 3 machines with Yellow Dog Linux? Processing power, and lots of it. Read all about the Terra Soft super-computing cluster built around this so-called game console.
As always, there's much more. Follow our instructions to create a virtual private network for your Nokia E61 phone, or use Linux to build a next-generation residential gateway.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
