In my RSS feeds I found something interesting in my Linux related folder from Red Hat Magazine. They published a video titled The History of Fedora. This video is well produced and Greg DeKoenigsberg explains the differences and goals of both Red Hat Enterprise and Fedora. This may be obvious to some people but for those that do not know the differences this is a good alternate form of information other than reading. So, here it is:
I’ve added some advertising to this blog to help offset the cost of running the server, I hope you guys don’t mind too much.
Every so often I see a banner ad for a product I once stumbled across on the net once. The product is Bomgar and they basically specialize in remote support appliances. I was interested in this product because they actually support major Linux distributions – now that is neat!
Basically in a nutshell your client goes to your website and clicks a button it installs temporary software on their computer and you get to support it, there are a ton more features that are in nifty flash animations on their site. Did I mention that it runs on major Linux distributions? That is a great feature in my opinion, they have support for SUSE, Ubuntu, Fedora and Red Hat. Impressive. If you currently support a Linux network this could be a great little box. Its a little pricey but in my opinion the cost may be worth it for the ability to easily support Linux boxes. I’d like to support a company that sees the need for enterprise Linux solutions.
I would like to see an open source solution that is similar to this but doesn’t have the price tag. If you know of one, let me know!
