Cooking with Linux - Imaginary Languages

 in
Programming languages aren't languages per se. You can't go out into the street and say, “print 'Hello, world!\n';” to passersby without raising the occasional curious eyebrow. In the right crowd, however, that might work as well as boldly proclaiming “naDevvo' yIghos” in a roomful of Klingons. It's all in how you say it and to whom.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

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.
