Linux Journal Contents #171, July 2008
Heard of the Web? If not, read on. This month we talk with Matt Mullenweg about WordPress. If you want to get your hands dirty in Web code, take a look at the rest of our feature articles on WebKit, Dojo and OpenLaszlo. In the rest of the issue, you'll find articles on OpenID, RDFa and Quanta Plus. Kyle Rankin puts a new spin (as in "no" spin SSD) on hard drives and also tells you how to migrate to that new disk (spinning or not). Mick Bauer continues his series on customizing live CD's. And, James Gray gives us a feel for the state of Linux in the enterprise. After all that, you may need some TV time. If so, check out our review on how to make that digital TV tuner card work in your Linux box.

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
