Why or why not would you agree that Novell partnering with LinuX will now present a viable alternative to Microsoft in the business world I agree that this partnership will present an alternative to microsoft in the business world for obvious reasons that it saves business organizations a lot of money since linuX is a free application It s really more of the budget that is concerned in some business organizations The lesser the budget without compromising quality and functionality then it s a fine choice Because there are alternatives between Microsoft LinuX and Macintosh what would make an individual choose one alternative over the other The most important criteria to look for if it meets the requirement needs of the business organization if all of them does then the criteria would likely be on asking question like would there be a lot specialist on that field that could be hired to maintain the system which is cheaper which is more efficient and are there a lot of technical support Based on Stallman s 2009 article what is the difference between the terms freeware and open source software Which of these two terms will you use in the future EXplain your preference for the term Free software is having the freedom to use the free software It s a social movement against proprietary softwares which they chose only certain types of organizations to use software and not allowed for everybody On the other hand open source software means that the software s source code is open for everybody to see and it doesn39t really necessarily mean free Open source is a methodology I prefer use free software if talking to technical people because it preserves the meaning However since most people think that open source is about having and downloading software for free without payment I might need to use that term for them to understand and avoid confusion Based on the article by Robert Strohmeyer 2008 is malware a threat in an online LinuX OS environment What factor might in uence the threat of malware to LinuX systems that run Web servers Yes malware can be a thread to the linuX operating system The only problem why there isn t much malware in the linuX operating system is that because it s not marketed If linuX operating system is the widely used operating system in all business sectors and at home the chance of linuX being attacked of malware will be high just like how microsoft is nowadays LinuX are popular for web servers and could be attacked if there are diffencies or bugs in the code however there is not much which is why many people prefer linuX as web servers Based on Yalta and Lucchetti s 2008 article what are the advantages and disadvantages of adopting GNULinux According to the article the advantages of adopting linuX are the following gt There is a free circulation of idea since it can be redistributed and can be modified to meet specific needs gt There is an access and transparency to the computing environment and everybody could see how it really works Unlike in microsoft the processes are hidden and secured gt It is freely available for everybody to continue the development maybe for research purposes It is sable and runs without interruption It is secured because of its architecture It does not make a big impact of damage when something goes wrong It is eXible where users could use it via a shell or a graphical user interface There is quality to the software because they are made by hobbyist iliii According to the article the disadvantages of adopting linuX are the following gt There is lack of commercial support gt Some hardware will not work because most hardware39s are dominated by the microsoft windows platform gt Migrating to a linuX environment is tough for non technical users LinuX is easier to understand for people are well seasoned with computers
