Free VMWare Server?

The “key product” is GSX server – their “lower end” software that runs on a Windows or Linux server. The re-branded product is now sinply called VMWare Server, and is completely free. My guess […]


I’ve been very interested in the series Linux Journal has been running on NX. They describe it as: “a new technology that allows one to run remote X11 sessions across slow or low-bandwidth network connections. User experience with NX is one of excellent responsiveness.

Novell has recently “opened” their development of SUSE Linux, creating a project called Open SUSE To clarify what Novell means when it says it is “opening” SUSE, Mancusi-Ungaro says “SUSE Linux is already open from a code perspective.
