Linux Journal Contents #161, September 2007
Get out your drool bib before you pick up this issue of Linux Journal. We've got the dilly on a superb notebook/tablet PC for Linux, Nokia's latest and greatest hand-held, and a $4,000 Ultimate Linux Box packed with power at every level. Everything is top-notch and nothing is out of reach, but even if you are on more of a budget, we have a next-best-thing configuration for the Ultimate Linux Box, too.
As always, there's much more. We compare the performance of $7,000 servers, give you an overview of the Fedora Directory Server, and we'll introduce you to Stream Control Transport Protocol, a better protocol than TCP.

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
