I support web development for a living and here are my thoughts about what you need to do it right. After almost 15 years of supporting pesky developers I have learned a few things. In this article I try to help you understand what you should plan to have and do. Check out and participate in our discussion about the proper setup of web development environments. Let us know how whether or not you agree with our thoughts in this post. The story is right here.

The Tech Republic has one of the most awesome articles I have read in a long time. The main theme of the article is that Linux Consultants, unlike Windows Consultants, are like Maytag repair people. As a former consultant supporting both Linux and other *nix versions I have to say this is so true. My largest problem was convincing my remotely hosted customers was getting them to upgrade the hardware they were on and doing major updates to the Linux and the LAMP stack. While this is amazing for customers it means that Linux consultants have to have larger groups of customers and can take on larger numbers of customers than their Windows counterparts.
Windows Admin's try not to be haters.....Linux admins just have it better on this front. The article is well written and funny and a fun way to start off your Friday.(or any day for that matter)
Brian talks about life with his newest toy the Motorola Droid
This week also marked the release of Ubuntu 9.10/Karmic which Brian installed without a single problem. Really nice job team. Oh and it boots a lot quicker.

(Yeah it's a long one but we talked about Wave and Droid for a good 30 minutes at the beginning of the show.)
WOW!!!! We finally got this moving. I am Brian "Wags" Wagner. I am the founder of LinuxInstall.Net. So why does the Internet need yet another Linux focused WebSite? Because a lot of great sites about Linux seem to be slowing. I am not saying all of the great sites are going anywhere. As an example of a site that is still going strong check out DistroWatch which is one of the best locations for finding information about what else but distrobutions.
So what are we going to do?
I have several of my friends out searching the Web for Interesting Stories about Linux. We are then going to turn the posts into a Podcast for people like myself who prefer to listen. We are going to broadcast our recording sessions and make the full/behind the scenes stuff available on Youtube and others. We are finally going to create a set of screencasts and articles that will show the processes we go through to do things in Linux. The topics will start off with what a new user would do. For instance, we will install a distro(or 2 or 10). After that we will continue to build on the server to create an entire network of servers. We have plans to add much much more but this seems like a great way to start.
What should we expect out of the editorial staff?
Everyone on my team lives in the real world. We have real jobs in real companies. We are not acedemics though we are all educated. We are not trained journalists, which you will see with our writing. We work hard to either Manage Technology based on Linux and/or the people who Manage the technology. Our goal is both to help the newest of newbies understand and the most seasoned of Linux Experts understand how to explain the when and where to use Linux. We don't believe Linux is the best choice for all situations. We do believe there are only a limited number of issues that need to be addressed to for Linux to hit the tipping point in the area of acceptance.
We believe that your feedback is our most valuable resource....
We look forward to everyones feed back about what we have to say and the articles, HowTo's and stories we link to. Community is the key to making Linux Mainstream and to make Open Source work. The same is true for our site. So please, please, please comment, ask questions, challenge our positions, and tell us what we can do better. We are passionate about Linux and Technology.
