Introduction to Linux course free and open to all

March 15, 2014

The Linux Foundation announced that it would be working with edX, a non-profit online learning site governed by Harvard and MIT, to make its “Introduction to Linux” course free and open to all.

This introductory class, which usually costs $2,400, will be the first from the Linux Foundation to run as a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). There is no limit on enrollment through edX’s platform.

The course will be held this summer, although an official start date has not been posted yet. Jennifer Cloer, Director of Communications for the Linux Foundation, said that over 2,500 people signed up for the course within the first 24 hours of it being posted. There are no prerequisites, and a note on the course’s information page says that most users will find the course takes between 40 and 60 hours to complete.

Kon-Boot Lets You Bypass Logon for Windows and Linux

August 4, 2009

Kon-Boot looks like a very interesting tool since it can get you into a system without having to logon first.

In the current compilation state it allows to log into a linux system as ‘root’ user without typing the correct password or to elevate privileges from current user to root. For Windows systems it allows to enter any password protected profile without any knowledge of the password.

The tool reportedly works with Windows Vista, XP, Server 2008, Server 2003, Windows 7, Gentoo, Ubuntu, Debian, and Fedora.

All of you admins out there might want to give this tool a whirl to see how it works against your systems – before one of your users does!

Ten essential Linux office apps

November 9, 2008

ZDNet article – 15 Oct 2008 18:01

This shortlist includes software that can easily handle much of your day-to-day office needs and do it on the Linux operating system. The software listed here is simple to use, reliable, (mostly) scalable, and business ready.

Of course, this is a generalised list. Far more specialised office-type software is available on the Linux platform. One of the best places to look for such software is in your Install Software tool, such as Synaptic or Yumex (the tool you have will depend upon the distribution you use). Look through the various categories (a good place to start is the ‘Office’ category) to find what you need.
