"My Poor Brain on Linux" Series



I did make a gentle start to Java on the "My Poor Brain" series (I know I haven't had the time to get past the basic stuff,but I can't help it as I'm not flooded with offers to start doing lots of work on Java where I can learn it a lot better. Having said that it doesn't mean that we won't talk about it).

About Linux, there's a lot of talk, loads and loads of info on the web but learning you can only do if you...
  • Define some targets
  • Sketch out waypoints across the map
  • Start with something useful
  • Pick up a topic (it could be Snort where you'd want to deploy this robust IDS, it could be Squid where you'd want to cache stuff on your Webserver) that will get you excited about learning it.
So that's exactly I'll try to get myself and you excited and start talking about stuff so we can start playing with Linux.

So what are we going to talk about? Well they will be anything and everything.
  • Linux Security (SELinux etc)
  • Linux Clustering (Clusters such as MPI, OSCAR, OpenMosix, Redhat's Piranha etc)
  • Linux Network Administration
  • Linux-Windows Interoperability: Stuff like Active Directory Integration , DNS, Samba/CIFS
  • And anything else that you'd want to talk about.
PS: I know it's gonna keep us busy but I assure you we'll have some fun. We will learn to use this OS and respect the folks who spend huge amounts of hours supporting this for no costs! (I mean the OpenSource community)
