I'm currently not involved in any Open Source projects, although I eventually want to. Right now my boys take up a lot of my free time.

I've had an on-again-off-again relationship with Linux for the past 20 years. It all started with buying a book on Slackware Linux that included an install CD. I would work with it for a while, and then something would stop working. After troubleshooting for a little while, I would get frustrated and switch back to Windows. A few years later I moved on Red Hat Linux, and it seemed much more user friendly, but I still ran into some issues that I couldn't seem to solve. I'd go back and try it again with each new release, but always ran into issues. I've been running Ubuntu Linux on my laptop now for the past 6 years, and absolutely love it! 2 years ago, I installed Mythbuntu on the machine running my TV, and have not looked back. I am now proud to say that all of the computers in my house run Linux!

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.
