Brian started working with *nix in while a student at Kent State University in the early 90's. In 1995, as an E-Mail Administrator for Caliber Technology (now part of Fedex) he was tasked with administering Sendmail on both Slackware Linux and Solaris Systems. His first home install of Linux was MkLinux DR1 in 1996 on his 60 Mhz PowerMac. Since then Brian has been working and consulting on Linux and it's uses in the Enterprise to support everything from E-Mail, Firewalls, Web and File serving to custom cluster solutions and grid solutions. Brian has had the opportunity to work in both Fortune 500 companies and small 2 person organizations. This has given him the unique insight into the differences every size business faces.

ZDNet sees the Ubuntu Based Dell Developers machine...

ZDNet has a quick update and first impression of a new Dell Laptop that will be based on Ubuntu.  The concept is cool and the laptop looks and sounds usable.  The big question is will people switch from Windows to it or will this just eat into Apple's market share?

Microsoft's Azure now supports Linux...Sort of..

Microsoft has announced that it wil now support Linux.  Well if you are running a few distros they will.  Those would be:

Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2

OpenSuse 12.01

CentOS 6.2

Ubuntu 12.04

If you didn't notice there is one very large distorbution missing from that list.  Red Hat and Fedora are not there but CentOS is.  CentOS is a dirivitive work off of Red Hat.  So it's not likely a driver issue.  It's more likely that it's a licensing and support contract thing.  We have another story about a contract they just signed so we know it's also unlikely that they aren't happy about working with each other.  Check out the podcast to hear us go into more detail about our thoughts on the whole situation.
