Option 1: Boot Ubuntu as a Live CD from a USB Flash Drive
Use this option to install Ubuntu as a Live Install, which allows you to boot from the USB flash drive in Ubuntu, experience the Linux environment but will not retain any changes or settings after you shut down. This is a great way to get a feel for the OS, test some of it's capabilities as well as typical hardware compatibility.
Programs you may need to download:
Ubuntu 10.04 Live CD ISO available at ubuntu.com
Universal USB Installer available at pendrivelinux.com
What you will need:
Running Windows XP/Vista/7
Fat32 Formatted USB 2.0 Flash Drive, at least 1GB
PC with a Bios that can boot from USB
Now with all of the necessary components in place, we can begin to setup our Ubuntu Live USB Drive.

For those working in the IT field, especially those that serve as a database engineer should not hesitate to use the Linux OS to perform their daily work. Because existing applications that are reliable enough to perform the database management of linux, that is "Tora"

Tora application is available for free on linux, maybe you could say as a replacement for TOAD application which runs on Windows OS. Tora application supports multi-OS platform which can be installed on Linux, Windows, and MacOS. Tora is also supported databases MySQL, Postgresql, and Oracle.

To download this application please visit his website: http://torasql.com/Download

For ubuntu users, just install it from synaptic. Or if you want the console, follow these steps:

$ Sudo apt-get build-dep tora

and install the library files to connect to an existing mysql database is:

$ Sudo apt-get install libqt4-sql-mysql

Incidentally I am here just to connect to the mysql database on localhost only. Assuming that to connect to the database, you must have already installed the database and already have a database with tables a try.

The name of the database that I use here is TestDB the table:

In the column order you just use the commands to existing databases and perform database manipulation according to your wishes.

Listed below are the five most common ways to install Linux on your system. If you are a total newbie running a Windows system, you might want to consider option V!
I. Slick and go: You can install it on your hard disk and completely erase the current disk, which will wipe out your Windows install. This isn't recommended unless you are installing Linux on an older computer that isn't critical to your business. Or if you are really ready for a change and are into new and exciting things...
II. Dual-Boot: Another way is to install Linux alongside your current Windows install and then decide which one you want to use at bootup. This is a popular route because you can always go back to Windows if you need something. This is recommended because there will be growing pains when you start to use Linux. Linux can do anything that Windows can do, but it is not Windows. Once you get used to Linux, you'll never go back, but sometimes getting to that point is difficult. Dual-booting can ease the transition and give the new Linux user a safety net.

Why should the Department of Defense stay behind when the rest of the world is busy developing on the open source Linux platform? Well good news is on the horizon for all telecommuters and Linux enthusiasts. The U.S. Department of Defense launched three brand new high end, secure, Linux based distributions in a bid to help telecommuters with better protected Remote Control Software technology.

The new high end distributions are called Lightweight Portable Security (LPS). The DoD is targeting telecommuters who need to access corporate and government networks. Most telecommuters presently use less secure remote locations and risk a unauthorized access to a lot of data. This is where the LPS Remote Desktop Software comes in as an add-on to the technology. True to its name, the LPS software creates a secure end node from any Intel based PC or Mac computers.

The LPS was created under the Software Protection Initiative and jointly produced by the Air Force Research Laboratory along with the DoD. The software can work by booting a thin Linux OS from a CD or pen drive without any need for local or external hard drives. There are no installations or admin rights needed to make it work. This greatly increases convenience, as all that is necessary is to have a functioning a computer which can boot from a CD, DVD or a USB flash drive.

As a business owner, you should have your website so that you can get customers through internet and earn revenues. When you are all set to publish your website, you should look for a suitable hosting provider who can provide accessible services at reasonable prices. There are several types of web hosting service providers, so you need to be bit careful. Before you buy services of some web hosting service provider ask which operating system they use for hosting. In today's world where every now and then there is a new technology being introduced it is important to have the best service provider to meet the future requirements. It is better to choose Linux hosting or Linux reseller hosting on web servers as operating system like Microsoft Windows does not support many latest software and programs.

Most of the people know about Microsoft Windows as it's mainly used at home, work or at school. It's very simple to use Windows for beginners and as you don't need any knowledge of the various commands. You can just open the required file or folder or application by just locating the cursor on it and then clicking it with mouse. Linux is a system with an open-source code which means that it's free and source codes are appropriately documented and simply extended.
