Linux Journal Issue #166/February 2008

Virtualization is the editorial focus of the February issue of Linux Journal. This issue covers core virtualization topics such as VirtualBox, OpenVPN, the KVM hypervisor and simplified server virtualization—from authors Jon Watson, Dimitriy Samovskiy, Irfan Habib and Kyle Rankin, respectively.

Beyond virtualization, there is plenty more to enjoy. Our friend Robin Rowe explains how Linux (on a Mac!) helped create the new Paramount film The Spiderwick Chronicles, James Gray reviews the Zonbu PC, Seth Kenlon deciphers video codecs on Linux and Gene Sally takes the fuss out of shrinking your embedded-Linux system.

Finally, taking virtualization in his typically rebellious direction, Marcel Gagné covers virtualized worlds—that is, two useful desktop mapping applications, namely Marble and KWorldClock.

Enjoy the February issue of Linux Journal!

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
