[SOLVED] Which programming language is mostly used today for developing corporate software
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2012
Basically, name of the subject says everything... I'm wondering which language is mostly used today for developing "serious" (corporate) software. Which are pros and cons for each? I'm not trying to start some flaming war... nothing similar!
I just want to hear your thoughts about those programming languages. If somebody has a good book regarding any of those languages, please, share the title and the author.
NOTE: if anybody thinks I should add another language, please, do recommend it!
why linux is a better corporate solution
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 16, 2006
my final assignment in my technical writing class is to write a white paper about some issue related to our current field of study. as a computer science major, i have decided to write my paper about microsoft's monopoly, its alternate solutions (mainly linux), and the benefits of linux in the corporate world (cost, security..), and how microsoft's monopoly leads to a lack of innovation.
i was wondering if anyone had any links to credible linux journals or other publications that i might be able to reference in my paper?
also if anyone has any other comments i would love to hear them.
Need Help Configuring CNTLM to Authenticate Against Corporate Proxy
- date: February 2, 2010
I posted another thread asking about ntlmaps, but I've given up on that, as I couldn't get it configured, and it seems that even though ntlmaps still seems more popular, it's been obsoleted by cntlm.
Anyway, my company imposed a proxy server which requires NTLM authentication, and as a result, non-NTLM clients don't work. I'm trying now to configure cntlm, but haven't figured out how to configure it for my proxy yet.
Please help me get this configured?
I posted to the cntlm forums, but that place is a ghost town.
Failing wget (no local proxy in use), for reference:

evolution exchange GAL success (corporate environment)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 24, 2008
I've read just about every post about evolution/Microsoft Exchange configuration. Not many describe the details of how they achieved success. So here is what I did. Hope it helps.
-- Ubuntu 8.04 w/all updates as of this posting --
Here are the most important settings:
As previously described by other posts.
for example mine is: napa/e0085899
(These are the same values that I would use to log into XP)OWA URL: <url>
This could be anything. I found mine by using our web access link
from the corporate website. When I click the link I was directed to:
https://owa.etn.com. So that is what I used for my OWA URL.Global Catalog server name: <good luck>
You could ask IT, but in my case, IT is happier if they don't know that I'm using Linux at work. By looking up Account settings in in Outlook (logged into XP), I found that the exchange server is listed as "CLEOHSMB12.napa.ad.etn.com". I know that CLEOHSMB12 i
best open source OS to learn from before entering corporate world

Hello and good day! I want to thank you for taking the time to read my questions.
1. First, consider the following copied from elsewhere on this site...
Businesses want things that are
a) Proven safe and stable
b) Well supported
c) Easily manageable/supportable
e) Cost effective (although almost never "free", because being the skeptics they are, they figure anything free must have a lot of problems)
f) Used by other businesses, especially others in their same "space" (i.e. businesses that do the same thing they do). No one wants to be the first to try something, and that won't ever change.
The above are why lots of companies use Red Hat and SuSE, but none (that I know of) use Gentoo.
With that being said, my goal is to pick an open source, Unix based OS and study the hell out of it. I mean I want to take it apart, put it back together, and repeat. So which one is the best to learn from? More specifically, which open source OS has the
Ubuntu Corporate Edition

I work as a systems tech for a reasonably large organisation with a few thousand deployed desktops and a couple of hundred servers. Other than using Sun Solaris for a couple of web-servers, Microsoft solutions are used for all desktop and server roles.
I've managed to sneak Ubuntu based servers into a couple of roles like web-content-filtering and wireless routing, and I must say my experiences with Ubuntu have been largely positive and it stands up well in the roles I've deployed it in.
That said, i wouldn't deploy Ubuntu into a desktop role. What's more my bosses wouldn't let me even if I tried. Let me try to explain why...
The organisation I work for has spend a fortune on deploying Microsoft server technologies and they underpin all that it does. Active Directory to authenticate users to resources, Exchange technologies for organisation and email, File Servers for well... serving files! The list goes on and on. Microsoft Windows XP slides nicely into this organisation
GPL Licensing issue for PCLINUXOS live cd : corporate environment
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 1, 2006
I am planning to customize live cd to be used for INTERNET kiosk in my organization. The CD that I will be using is:
I am planning to remove certain applications like multimedia/file sharing clients etc, and the PC shall be used only for browsing purposes.
I would be obliged anyone could help that:
(i) Whether commercial usage of this CD, in this manner is allowed or not.
(ii)I think that entire iso is available under GPL, however some individual components may not be for e.g. firefox etc.
Please Help, also provide supporting evidences if any.
Chort, please move this thread to appropriate forum, in case the need be.
Thanks in advance.

Debian "corporate firewall" howto author here considering Ubuntu version, worth it?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 13, 2012
I apologize for my frankness, and probably posting in the wrong section. It's been years since I last visited the Ubuntu forums.
I am what you would call a Debian enthusiast. For many years, I have authored an advanced how-to on developing a corporate firewall system, using freely available Debian packages, without compiling or patching. Configuration is the trick. You have to become an expert on firewall configuration methodology, the same required by Cisco or any other firewall manufacturer.
Now that I have your attention, over the past seven years or so, I have been the author and developer of an advanced debian-based firewall system, fully documented in a how-to document. It has a happy home in the Debian community, among the advanced users.
Up until now, I never considered the Ubuntu community would be interested. Quite frankly, it's not for beginners. Although I wrote it to educate the beginner, you must have a willingness to learn advanced TCP/IP routing/filte
Slackware corporate implementation ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 6, 2007
Totally off the wall guys but basically my question is does anyone use (by that I mean administer or have recommended) Slackware in a corporate setting rather than a home/personal setup ? I have been searching UK recruitment sites to get an idea on how popular Linux,(with a slant to Slackware), is and it seems to be the businesses that are running Linux mainly choose Redhat as their solution. Does anyone know of ,(or work with), a corporate Slackware environment? I am new to Linux (about 4 months now) but not IT in a corporate sense in general (20 years, CPM,DOS,Win,OS/2,AIX,Vax,Sco,Windows,Slackware) but to be honest I'm really getting a good 'old fashioned' feeling about the openness and community around Linux and in particular Slackware - (yes I'm showing my age now with the old 'hacker', in it's truest sense, mentallity. Anyway - in a nutshell - (and there are a lot of issues around this) - are there any BIG (as in number of users/volume of data) mission critical solutions in plac
