    Diary of a LINUX Bumpkin Linux is catching on like wildfire, capturing the hearts and minds of daring techies everywhere. Is Linux in your future? Find out where it came from and why people are talking about it. Ed: Good article, but his history omits many prior years (over a decade) and projects. BSD at Berkeley, and Unix at Bell Labs among others played a significant role. Linux is simply the next generation of the concepts & specifications developed there, and at other projects such as AlohaNet, dARPA, etc. GNU was a reaction to lacking features, and faults in commercializations of these items, and many GNU and Non-GNU projects were added. Finally Linux took over from there and brought it all together. Then the Open Source moniker was coined to include all open licenses within one overall concept. Linux is now the crucible for deployment of further advances. (December 1998)

    Halloween Three Ed: Bill Gates' stated at the introduction of NT was that it would be a "Better Unix than Unix", and Microsoft has worked hard indeed to make this a fact. But the truth is that they never truly understood this undertaking, and cannot hope to achieve it until they embrace rather than fight OpenSource. But Linux is acheiving it. So now instead they say that NT is different? And that they innovate? And that Linux is stealing from them?. (November 1998)

    Jerry Pournelle On the "Halloween Papers". Ed: I've spoken to Jerry several times about Linux since he presented Linux Pro with a "Byte: Best of Comdex" award in 1995.

He doesn't see the bigger picture. If he were right, Linux Mall and it's competitors would not be in business! Perhaps the author should visit here? (November 1998) back online Ed: Congrats Michael, good work. Sorry to hear you had troubles! (November 1998)

    American Megatrends announces Linux support. Ed: This is the maker of the AMI Bios, motherboards, and other industry standard PC items. I have been after them to do this for 3 years now. Success is sweet as this is another major triumph for Linux! (November 1998)

    Microsoft on Linux, again: 'best of breed' Unix. Another interesting opinion from a fairly recent convert is right on the money. Ed: Right now almost no matter what Microsoft does, they are seen as being in the wrong. They've made their bed and now they have to sleep in it. Don't be seduced when they try to hire you! Alan Cox wasn't even if LinkExchange was. Linux Mall is one of LinkExchange's busiest member web sites, and we now have to devise an appropriate response. Is it better to use MS' own new promotional engine to promote Linux, or should we boycott someone who made "a deal with the devil"? (November 1998)

    OMG objects to Linux Ed: Give em a few weeks or months, ridicule always comes before acceptance, or if not, and their technology is necessary, it is simply reproduced. Perhaps it is time for them to look at the open source model for their technology, before they become irellevant. (November 1998)

    Lotus hedges on Linux move. Ed: If you remember, we told you their position of not supporting Linux would not last. But they still don't get it.... (November 1998)

    Linux Install fests are becoming more common. How many people know that in 1995 our CEO coined the term "Installfest" after he formed one of the first Linux user groups in the country known as CLUE, (Colorado Linux Users and Enthusiasts) together with several Smoky Hill high school students. Unfortunately the Colorado CLUE has not had the good fortune of finding enough ebullient leaders like other well known groups. If anyone in Colorado would like to help bring life back to CLUE, they could use it, and LinuxMall will support it, as we support other user groups around the world. See "User Groups" in the navigation bar on the LinuxMall home page. (October 1998)

    Linux Pavilion one of 12 at Comdex Fall. How many people know that Linux Mall's CEO Mark Bolzern started more than 4 years ago putting the Linux Pavilion concept together by promoting and convincing Comdex as to it's value. Mark provided for both Linux International, and LinuxMall/WGS booths while inviting volunteers and other Linux related vendors to join in. Mark also called the Comdex folks right after Comdex last year, and asked them to invite Linus Torvalds to keynote this fall. Mark told them that the attention to Linux would be hitting a crescendo by the following fall (now), and they'd look like prophets for having called it right. The Comdex folks instead settled on a much less visible panel session put together with help from the Linux Journal folks, called "Windows Alternatives". Mark suggested Mike Cowpland and Nick Petreley for that panel. It is being done. Plan to come and show your support for this, and for Linus Torvalds as a keynoter at future Comdex shows.

    Linux Office Suite Delayed The reason we didn't make a big deal about it, is we knew it was delayed. We think it is a sin to announce products before customers can buy them, or dealers can deliver them. We refuse to pre-announce. If you want to know if a product is actually available or not, check us, or wait for us to announce it. (October 1998)

    Oracle aims Oracle8 for Linux at Microsoft NT. We've been predicting this, finally it happens! You will now start to see Microsoft round up the wagons, as the rest of the industry indians join each other in the attack. It won't happen instantly, but it will happen. Now the key is for each of them them not to do their own disparate Linux versions but rather work with Red Hat, Caldera, SuSE, and Debian, and press a CD with one of these and their product as their own (as well as mark it with the name of the original distribution used). They need to test on all four (easy to set up with LILO on one machine with a shared development directory, unlike the old Unix days). They need to follow the Linux Pro philosophy when doing so, and it'll work. This includes submitting fixes back to the distribution maker they chose to work with. If this happens, Linux wins. It will be fait accompli, with only time needed to prove it to the doubters. (October 1998)

I guess he does not realize that supporting Linux is just a recompile from their Solaris version, and that techs inside the company already have the product running on Linux. Heck there are people using it in Linux' SCO Emulation mode. Typical executive denial for lack of knowledge or fear of the unknown. (October 1998)

They'd still own the parts they created, they'd still own the trademark, they'd have the world behind them working for them, and most of all. They'd still be the leader provided they moved fast enough and cooperated openly. But the way it is now, the Freeware community, IBM & HP all trying to reproduce it from scratch, Microsoft wants to kill it or take it over, and all is mayhem again. We at LinuxMall have told Sun that we think the current JDK license is a vote for NT and against Linux. It is Linux, not Solaris that can take on Microsoft. In the long run Sun needs to support OpenSource (back to their roots) and build the best possible hardware. By the way, for a great Java tool & IDE check out CoffeeShop! (September 1998)
