  • Steve Jobs and the Next Big Thing

    by Randall E. Stross

    List: Out-of-print , check with us directly , we may have it.

    Stross takes tremendous pride in saying practically nothing positive about Steve Jobs or NeXT , classic "read" and truly a twisted view of what happened after all these years. Stross , well you missed the boat in my opinion. Stross must have been in awe and suckered into the much superior Dos and Win 3.11 marketing engine like most of the world unfortunately. Out of print but occassionally available.

Red Hat Linux Professional sold here!:Our Price: $139.99 Platform: Linux Media: CD-ROM Availability: Usually ships within 24 hours. system requirements Features: Powerful server and e-commerce tools for ISPs, Web developers, and system administrators Advanced partitionless installation and improved X configuration Powerful Web-based, high-availability configuration tool Fast, easy Priority Online Access for software updates Enhanced software RAID Shipping: Currently, item can be shipped only within the U.S. ASIN: B00004SV5B Editorial Reviews With straightforward installation and strong administrative features, Red Hat's Linux Professional 6.2 offers a powerful option for running Linux and Apache Web server with SSL-security. Red Hat continues its tradition of easier Linux installation in this release; you'll be up and running quickly. Right out of the box, Red Hat comes ready with two graphical desktops, KDE and GNOME, and the reasonably powerful StarOffice office suite (for word processing and spreadsheets). We found administration in Linux is easier thanks to the graphical LinuxConf utility; most administrative functions are available through a browser for remote administration. One standout feature here is Red Hat's support for installing new modules through its easy-to-use Red Hat Package Manager (rpm) technology. This Professional Edition is geared to the server. (If you need Linux for the desktop only, consider the Standard version. A separate CD contains a secure, SSL-enabled version of Apache Web Server, which requires a separate install. Fortunately, the documentation for working with certificates and SSL is good. We liked the handy graphical utility for managing certificates. Besides Apache, Red Hat bundles numerous server-side tools on several extra CD's including trial versions of Oracle 8i and IBM DB2, plus numerous resources for developers, such as excellent Perl support. (The contents of, the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network, CPAN, are provided on a separate CD.) Besides online help, we found Red Hat's printed documentation to be quite good, which makes it a wise choice for anyone entirely new to Linux. With a growing installed user base, Red Hat continues to offer an attractive bundle of features that add considerable value to Linux. Red Hat Linux Professional delivers all you need to run secure Apache as your Web server successfully. --Richard Dragan Product Description The Professional edition powers your server or workstation with its advanced server and e-commerce tools and 180 days of Priority Online Access to keep your code current. It's the perfect choice for ISPs, Web developers, small-business owners, and system administrators. Red Hat Linux 6.2 features installation options more powerful, support options more complete, and high-availability clustering more advanced than the earlier versions. The Internet applications Apache and Sendmail are also... read more
