It looks like Linux on the desktop has taken a hit. Wal-Mart has announced that it’s no longer going to sell Everex’s Linux-based systems…at least in its brick-and-mortar stores. Based on the stereotypical Wal-Mart demographic, I can’t say I’m shocked. Hey – I shop there too when I have to!
That said, based on my experience – and continued instability – of Windows Vista running on my HP Compaq 8510p, Wal-Mart shoppers and computer newbies might just be better off going the Linux route. End of an era I suppose…
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
