The high-energy event is a must-attend for senior technologists from CEOs on down – including CIOs, CTOs, directors of infrastructure, VPs of technology, IT directors and managers, network and storage managers, network engineers, enterprise architects, and communications and networking specialists.




@ThingsExpo Power Panel | The World's Many IoTs: Which Are the Most Important?
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.

Lunch Power Panel | Microservices & IoT- Moderated by Jason Bloomberg
In this Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit, moderated by Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx, panelists Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at Akana; Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks; and Troy Topnik, ActiveState's Technical Product Manager; and Otis Gospodnetic, founder of Sematext; peeled away the buzz and discuss the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise. As remote IoT devices and sensors become increasingly intelligent, they become part of our distributed cloud environment, and we must architect and code accordingly. At the very least, you'll have no problem filling in your buzzword bingo cards.


The business world has never seen anything like the Linux ecosystem before. Within the context of the business and social phenomenon that is OSS, this article discusses why there exists a natural niche for a non-profit member organization to be front and center in the move to OSS on ...
This column is dedicated to helping IT managers understand and investigate Linux as an alternative to commercial server and desktop solutions. As a Windows refugee I'll share my experience, providing both strategic and tactical advice on how to take advantage of the Linux operating sys...
Have you ever needed to get to a Linux desktop on your network, whether to provide desktop support or install an application that required a GUI interface to install? With NetOp Remote Control for Linux, you don't have to drive across town to do it.
Wyse Technology today broadened its Linux-based thin-client portfolio with the introduction of two new thin clients, the Wyse Winterm 5125XE and the Winterm 5455XL.
Opera is $39 if you want to buy it. It's not worth purchasing just to get rid of its embedded banner ad, but Our Hero thinks it is well worth the money for other reasons. (1,200 words)
Joe Barr is happy to have a Ximian desktop again, and hopes he doesn't have to go a long time without it in the future. Want a polished desktop? Give it a try!
The SCO vs. IBM lawsuit gives off a subtle, unpleasant odor I couldn't quite place. When SCO set its sights on Linux distributors and even Linux itself, the source of the stench became unmistakable — Redmond. A humorous look at a potential smoking gun. (1,900 words)
CrossOver Office has matured to the point where I consider it equal to Win4Lin in desirability. Not equal in capability or ease of use, mind you, but equal in value. Win4Lin is still my favorite solution, and it's an excellent choice for those who already have a copy of Windows 98 SE o...
At the risk of sounding blasé, Mandrake 9.1 is a pretty standard distribution, and consists of the latest KDE, GNOME, OpenOffice.org, Xine, Apache, MySQL, PHP, and PostgreSQL. The PowerPack version comes with 60-days of support via e-mail. The higher-priced ProSuite version of Man...
In the late 1980s, I wrote an online bridge game for Portal. The world has changed a lot since then, but the itch remains. I decided to scratch the old itch again: I'm writing a bridge game, this time for online play over the Internet and on Linux.
I decided to put my Red Hat Network subscription to greater use. I normally use RHN to run up2date at least weekly so I can keep up with the latest security fixes and updates. This week, I decided to download the iso images of 'shrike' (Red Hat's code-word for its new release) and upgr...
With all the chatter accompanying two WINE-related announcements over the past week or so, Joe Barr thought it might be a good time to take a long look at the WINE project to see what all the fuss has been about. (1,400 words)
Here are the basic steps to adding 120 gigabytes of storage to your
I've been hanging around all the gaming channels I can find on irc.freenode.net over the past week or so, trying to learn more about the Linux gaming scene. There are more top-quality games available today than ever before, and the pipeline is filled with more jewels to come. (1,500 wo...
I assumed I could boot the well-known Linux distributions from a CD-ROM drive, make some on-screen selections, let the distribution know what hardware to use, twiddle my thumbs for a while as it loaded software and configured itself, and then have a working system. Was I ever wrong. (8...
Tricks, tips and techniques for installing one of the greatest timesinks ever invented on Linux. Hurry, Lady Aribeth has a secret mission, and you need to find and recover the Waterdhavian creatures! (1,400 words)
Now that Linux boasts full-featured office suites, there's no reason it can't become a boon for small- and home-offices. Joe Barr compares two Optical Character Recognition packages -- Kooka & Gocr (free software) and OCR Shop (proprietary) -- that may be of special value in the legal ...
In the Browser Wars' latest scrap, MSN 'optimized' Opera browsers by sending instructions to shift text 30 pixels to the left. Opera responded by releasing a humorous 'Bork version' of its Windows browser, but Microsoft's track record in dealing with competitors isn't so funny -- and n...
OpenOffice.org is more sophisticated and powerful than I realized. It can be made to work with various database-management systems, and it can do the mailmerge functions required by many SOHO types. Ease-of-use issues need attention.
Thanks in no small part to a helpful how-to piece by John McCreesh, Joe Barr shows us how to get ODBC, MySQL and OpenOffice to treat each other with respect. And don't forget to tune in next week, when Joe tells all regarding his attempts to use MySQL from within OpenOffice (1,500 word...
Looking for a software solution to help him access his home desktop remotely, Joe Barr finds even more than he'd hoped for in TightVNC. (1,470 words)
Maybe we're taking the whole recycling thing too far, but the Linux.SYS-CON.com editors decided to do a little archive-diving for the most interesting, popular, controversial and recyclable Linux stories of 2002. As a year-end treat, we've posted our list of standout stories here and a...
At wit's end due to crowded shopping malls, miserable weather and that FAO Schwartz song that plays over and over and over until you lose your mind? Have no fear: an open-source, first-person-shooter game called Cube can help relieve some of your stress, and Joe Barr is here to tell yo...
A reader asks, 'Can I run any Linux application on Windows and any Windows application on Linux? If yes, how? Where can I get a tutorial on starting with Linux and its benefits? How can I install Linux on my system? From where I can get Linux applications?' Here's our shot at answering...
Ever since his own jump to open source, Joe Barr has been hearing complaints from Linux newbies and never really bought into any of them. Until now. Joe points out three major obstacles for anyone making the jump to Linux and explains how the operating system's usability can improve. (...
The pluses for Mandrake installation are its speed and the absolute ease of obtaining and applying updates. It completely obliterates the Windows contenders in both the update category and the installation of attached devices. (1,900 words)
Joe Barr tests the installation process for the sample version of Xandros 1.0. Our hero finds that the Distribution Formerly Known As Corel Linux isn't just pretty... it's pretty darn easy to install, too. (2,200 words)
I am one of those people that just love to get their hands on new operating systems, distributions of operating systems, anything about operating systems just simply fascinates me. . . . Out of all the programs, applications, gadgets, and peripherals that abound for computers, operatin...
First, we compared the reinstallation of Windows 2000 to a fresh installation of Red Hat 7.3. Then we brought in a newbie to install Windows XP, on the theory that the latest Windows would be the state of the art in convenience and speed. In this installment, we compare all to the late...
The obvious solution to this problem is to lobby to get Linux pre-installed on as many PCs as possible, right? Wrong. That would help, of course, but it's not looking far enough into the future. (1,500 words)
A snapped tendon, Klingon attacks and DHCP woes had Nick Petreley in the doledrums last week at his new home in North Carolina. Luckily, a SOHOware DSL/cable router was able to fix one of these problems. Can you guess which one? (1,100 words)
Have you ever heard of this distro? Not many have. I ran across it by accident one day, and since I'm always looking at what's available - both mainstream and not as well publicized - I decided to check it out.
Joe Barr responds to reader feedback about his recent Red Hat vs. Win2000 install comparison and accepts the challenge to put Windows XP installation up to the test. Will Windows enthusiasts win out and force Joe to eat crow, or will Red Hat remain the quickest and easiest install test...
If you are a committed Linux user running an RPM-based distribution with a need for ViaVoice Dictation, I recommend that you beg, borrow, or steal a copy of the Mandrake PowerPack Edition 8.0 instead of trying the IBM commercial offering. Part 2 in a series. (1,200 words)
The boxed version of IBM's ViaVoice Dictation for Linux is one of the most poorly delivered commercial offerings I have seen for Linux or any other platform. If you need voice recognition software, get Mandrake or SuSE, which bundle ViaVoice Dictation.
Joe Barr walks us through his experience with GnuCash personal-accounting software. His conclusion? GnuCash is good enough to trust with his miniature donkey farm’s bookkeeping.
Knoppix is an 'instant demo' distribution. You make (or buy) a bootable CD, plop it in your CD drive, and reboot. Voila, THAT is your installation. (1,200 words)
I expected Windows 2000's installation would be seamless, fast, and lightyears ahead of upstart Red Hat's by any measure I could concoct. It turns out the Windows 2000 Pro installation is superior to Linux, but in two dubious categories. (2,000 words)
The Linux desktop world reached another milestone in April when the third major version of the K Desktop Environment (KDE 3.0) hit download servers.
I called my local Staples Store and asked when they were expecting delivery of the New Red Hat Linux 7.3. I was put on hold, as usual, and waited a minute. When a sales representative came on line, I repeated the question, and was placed back on hold. Again, about another minute. Don't...

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Whenever a new technology hits the high points of hype, everyone starts talking about it like it will solve all their business problems. Blockchain is one of those technologies. According to Gartner's latest report on the hype cycle of emerging technologies, blockchain has just passed the peak of their hype cycle curve. If you read the news articles about it, one would think it has taken over the technology world. No disruptive technology is without its challenges and potential impediments that frequently get lost in the hype. The panel will discuss their perspective on what they see as th...

Authorization of web applications developed in the cloud is a fundamental problem for security, yet companies often build solutions from scratch, which is error prone and impedes time to market. This talk shows developers how they can (instead) build on-top of community-owned projects and frameworks for better security.Whether you build software for enterprises, mobile, or internal microservices, security is important. Standards like SAML, OIDC, and SPIFFE help you solve identity and authentication, but for them authorization is out of scope. When you need to control "who can do what" in your ...
