SCO World:

UNIX Business Solutions

91 Unitel Initiative: IBM, Intel, SCO, Sequent Forge New Unix! Throughout Unix's checkered past, the many attempts at its unification have included various alliances, partnerships, and initiatives. Nearly all have failed, primarily because of the competitive nature of the participants. Now the call to create a unified Unix comes from IBM, Intel, SCO, and Sequent. Perhaps the prestige of IBM pulling the train and the specter of Windows NT bearing down can give this initiative a reasonable chance of success.

Microsoft Hits $55 Million Loan Mark, Revamps Training Logo

Microsoft Corp. has handed out more than $55 million in loans as part of its Skills 2000 initiative aimed at helping people become Microsoft certified professionals. The loans, which help defray some of the costs for IT training and resources, are predicted to top out at $76 million before the close of the year.

Howling in the Wires

Even the "net-literate" can fail to grasp the real significance behind the Microsfoft Trial. Net chat forums are full of emotional rhetoric - the Wall Street Journal's discussion area, which one might hope would offer a bit more wisdom, blusters about "free markets" on the one hand and "Microsoft arrogance" on the other - which invariably miss the point. Where to turn for insight? The author suggests gaining some historical insight by reading the book Titan, a biography of John D. Rockefeller.

What Does Sun Have to Fear from Linux?

Windows NT bashing is all the rage for commercial Unix vendors and open source communities alike, but don't forget that Linux is still Unix, and many Linux users are lost opportunities for the likes of Solaris and SCO. Is there a market where Solaris is safe from Linux? Sun execs seem to think so, but analysts aren't so sure.
Sys Admin 60 Ron Jachim

Application Level ping: alp

The ability of users to access systems and the applications that reside on those systems is a fundamental concern in any organization, and ensuring such access is the most basic task of all systems administrators. What can you, as a systems administrator, do to address user concerns about system uptime? One approach is to utilize SNMP to log which hosts are up.

Egghead Scrambles to Virtual Retailing

Following a day-by-day tactical schedule, store managers marked down remaining inventory, advertised closing sales, and finally furloughed their employees and themselves. Egghead Software, a once-thriving retail chain selling personal computer hardware and software, disappeared from the material world. But Egghead, founded in 1984, didn’t vanish like that 19th-century remnant, Woolworth. Instead, the company, renamed egghead.com, reappeared in a virtual venue that many observers expect to be at the heart of 21st-century retailing: the World Wide Web.

Ed. - Even though the volatility of Internet stocks might not make it the best gauge, the success of egghead.com's stock since the decision to become strictly an online venture seems to have people believing in the future of the company despite recent financial losses.

IBM Unveils E-Commerce Chip

The chip is expected to aid e-commerce applications by managing thousands of network connections simultaneously. It supports more than 65,000 network connections at the same time, thus opening the door to lower-cost systems. The single chip can replace the many chips now required to manage the thousands of network connections required by e-commerce applications.

Ed. - Companies are beginning to realize that they have to do whatever they can to jump on the bandwagon.

Merging Networks Ahead

The Internet changes everything, they say. Judging from the torn and scattered old blueprints for public network design, they must be right. The Internet protocol (IP) has forced a radical rethinking of the way the telephone network is being prepared to meet the information age.

Ed. - Though the techonologies to make a full transition to IP seems a few years off, companies would be wise to start looking into their IP path now.

Virtual Trade Routes: Why Bandwidth Matters

The Internet hitched a free ride on the back of telephone networks. These networks were never desinged for multicast business teleconferencing or multimillion-hit web events. The phone-line bottleneck is bad news for every type and size of business.

The New Challenger to Desktop PCs

While many may not yet know about thin-client computing, industry analysts say thin clients will account for more than 20 percent of the entire desktop market by the year 2002. An industry watcher, Zona Research Inc., estimates that the worldwide thin-client market will experience an increase of more than 350 percent next year, jumping from $582 million in 1998 to over $2 billion in 1999.

Walking the Streets of the ACM

The ACM's (Association for Computing Machinery) 1998 Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work centered on using computers to make it easier for people to work together, an extremely worthy goal. Think about it: for the last fifteen years, the computer industry has focussed on helping individuals use computers more productively, but has placed much less emphasis on creating applications and devices that help us work together.

UGeek 95 How Low Can the iMac Go? Traditionally, the best prices for computer equipment have been found online. Best Buy Computer Inc. is breaking that tradition by selling the iMac for $1,099, blowing its retail and online competitors away. The iMac's original price was $1,299.

Too Old for High Tech?

Feeling a little pooped this morning? Just don't have the same zip you had in your late 20s? Better not confide that to your supervisor. Judging by the hiring habits in Silicon Valley and other high-tech hot spots, age--and the wisdom that we hope comes with it--aren't highly valued attributes. In fact, the contrary is true, according to a growing chorus of not-yet-geriatric workers.

Is Anything Really on the Internet Anymore?

In the early days of the Information Superhighway, many doubted the viability of the Internet on a large scale. The central question - who will pay for it when the American government pulls out? - still remains somewhat unanswered. The obvious answer is commercial forces.

Ed. - Be weary of free offers as the old adage about a free lunch appears just as valid in cyberspace.
