Linux Journal Issue #178/February 2009

Stop me before I program again! Well, at least stop me till I get a chance to read this month's Linux Journal and find out all the latest related to Web Development. Don't write another line of JavaScript till you get a chance to check out our articles on Dojo drawing tools and jQuery. If you're just plain tired of JavaScript, maybe it's time to look at the Google Web Toolkit—get some of the hottest JavaScript on the planet without writing a single line of JavaScript (you read that right). If you're a Ruby type, get further faster and look good while you're at it with ActiveScaffold. And, if you're looking for some new site creation tools, don't miss this month's Cooking With Linux column. If you've got some extra coin and need a Netbook, see our review of the Dell Mini 9. If you're looking for a portable media player, see our review of the Archos 5. For you Second Life fans, see our introductory article on the game and its open-source nature. And, if you're a reeeeaaaaaal Second Life fan we have an extra special treat for you: we put your picture on the cover!

Second Life Twink

parl's picture

I was exceedingly impressed with the leather and Levi clad simulacrum twink on the cover of the February issue, especially his well formed legs and impressive package. I am pleased that you are now appealing to a new audience and can see some follow-ups to this pic. How about a co-op ad joining Silicon Mechanics and Speedo or even Michael Phelps (in his usual uniform) demonstrating the Happy Hacker keyboard. I'll be renewing my subscription ASAP just to encourage you to keep up the good work.

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.
