Re: [vox] Survey: What do YOU use Linux for?


I teach community college classes in network operating systems and I.S. security. After years of NetWare and NT/2000/2003, Linux is a real delight. Students don't have to pay for any of the software and a home network is cheap enough for almost everyone. They can play with anythingmail servers one week, protocol analyzers the next. The open source community is still all about freedom, roll-your-own, tons of resources and let's help each other solve problems, all the stuff that makes learning fun. To stay current, Linux supports our home net with iptables and NAT, postfix, spamassasin, apache, bind9, DHCP, SAMBA and a slew of security tools.

I can't imagine ever teaching closed source again.

Cheers, Mike

There's a demo this Sunday at the Davis Food Co-Op, and I thought it'd be
neat to have a list of "things LUGOD members use Linux for" available
for when people ask.

So, here's a very short survey...  What do YOU use Linux for?
(Server? Desktop? PDA? Appliance?  What services do you run?
What desktop apps do you use?  ... and anything else you can think of! :^) )
