I'm a fairly prominent member of the Linux Community as a writer, contributor, and longtime evangelist for the cause and there are a few things I'd like the Community-at-Large to consider on my behalf. These are five things that I wish Linux had. Consider this as my wish list for the 2009 development calendar. 1. Built-in Paravirtualization - I want a distribution that is paravirtualized--that is to say, a distribution that comes out of the box ready to give you the virtualization you need as a hypervisor OS. I know there's projects like [URL="http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/serveredition/jeos"]JeOS[/URL] and [URL="http://www.proxmox.org/"]ProxMox[/URL] but I want a …

News headlines screaming that yet another Microsoft Windows vulnerability has been discovered, is in the wild or has just been patched are two a penny. Such has it ever been. News headlines declaring that a 'major security problem' has been found with Linux are a different kettle of fish. So when reports of an attack that could circumvent verification of X.509 security certificates, and by so doing bypass both secure sockets layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) website protection, people sat up and took notice. Warnings have appeared that recount how the vulnerability can impact upon Debian, Red Hat …

I've had several people ask me what I think the best, top, most user friendly, ultimate, and so on distribution is--so now I'm publishing my Top 10 Linux Distributions in reverse order of preference. Ease of installation, commercial support, community support, updates, administrative tools, stability, performance, and to a lesser extent--their ranking on [URL="http://www.distrowatch.com"]DistroWatch.com[/URL]. 10. [URL="http://www.novell.com"]SuSE[/URL] (SLED, [URL="http://www.opensuse.org"]OpenSuSE[/URL], etc.) - This bottom spot belongs to Novell's Linux offerings mostly due to the commercial version's lackluster performance and overall updatedness (if that's a word). SuSE Linux seems to be a bit behind the curve for updated hardware drivers. Though it's community-supported …

Any list of best or worst will have its opponents and proponents and I foresee that this list of worst Linux distributions will be no different. There were, at last count, almost 300 Linux distributions and they all can't be great. But, this list of Linux distributions are, in my opinion, the worst of the lot. Beginning with the least offensive at number 10 to the least desirable at number 1, this list is a compilation of my opinions and experiences with various distributions over the past 15 years but only current distributions are included.

Do you consider yourself to be fairly familiar with the [URL="http://www.debian.org"]Debian[/URL] Linux distribution? I thought I was familiar with it enough to know its origin and history, how its name was derived and that Richard Stallman, the Father of the [URL="http://www.fsf.org"]Free Software[/URL] movement, uses a Debian derivative ([URL="http://www.gnewsense.org/"]gNewSense[/URL]) for his own [URL="http://www.lemote.com/"]personal computer[/URL].

[URL="http://redhat.com"]Red Hat[/URL] Enterprise Linux now comes with built-in virtualization ([URL="http://linux-kvm.org"]KVM[/URL]) but is Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) about to go to the virtual mat with [URL="http://vmware.com"]VMware[/URL]?

The topic of certification surfaces every so often in technical circles--especially when job seekers face tough job competition. The value of such certifications comes into question versus that of years of experience. For experienced technicians and engineers, the opinion is that experience is the most important for landing a job. In the minds of newbies and wannabes, certifications rule. Certifying authorities and vendors, of course, want you to spend the money obtaining the certifications and are ready to cite instances where certification is required for employment. I, myself, was caught up in the certification frenzy back in the early 90s …

It's rare that a company like [URL="http://www.redhat.com"]Red Hat[/URL] would remove a high-end feature from its popular commercial operating system but that's just what it did. Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.0 will ship without the [URL="http://www.xen.org"]Xen[/URL] hypervisor. Instead, it will include Red Hat's own [URL="http://www.linux-kvm.org"]KVM[/URL] virtualization. Has Red Hat done itself a disservice with this move? Is it alienating an entire user base? Absolutely not, to both questions. After Red Hat purchased Qumranet in 2008 (and acquired KVM in the deal), it no longer needed to support a second, competing hypervisor. The people at Red Hat and Qumranet are smart …

I've been a long time anti-VDI voice but Red Hat just might be the one to pull it off and make it work with its KVM and the SPICE protocol both of which were acquired in their 2008 purchase of Qumranet. If any non-container technology can make VDI work sufficiently, it is KVM and SPICE.

Welcome to the 10th installment of the Crystal Ball Sunday series. This is an exciting time to be involved with Linux because the temperature is right for some Linux vendor consolidation.

It's hard to convince Joe and Mary User to convert to Linux when the first things you hear from them are: "Where's my <insert stupid application here>?" "Why can't I just have <insert ridiculous thing here>?" or the ever-popular "This doesn't work like <insert overpriced application here>?" Honestly, it's enough to make me want to tell them to "just buy a Mac and stop calling me." Linux, after all, is for smart people and I really don't find any reason to "dumb it down" for the general population. Linux converts feel that they must proselytize everyone they know and have …
