Although its timetable may not always be ideal, Valve has come through for
Linux users lately. Not only has it released a native Linux version
of Steam (with many native games!), it also has expanded its Linux
support as the basis for its standalone SteamBox. The first step toward
a Steam-powered console is the operating system. more>>
I've teased about Steam, speculated about Steam and even bragged about
Steam finally coming to Linux. Heck, check out the screenshot for just a partial
list of games already running natively under our beloved OS. Little
did I know that the folks at Valve not only planned to support Linux,

After months of me promising Steam would be coming to Linux, it's finally here. The early verdict: it's pretty great! The
installer is a simple pre-packaged .deb file for Ubuntu (or Xubuntu
in my case), and the user portion of the install looks very much like
Windows or Macintosh. In my limited testing, I've found
the Steam beta to be at least as stable as Desura. more>>
As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.
Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.
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.
