Why Using Linux is Wonderful

by @ 1:33 pm. Filed under General Linux, My Opinion

Can I just tell you how much I hate school?

I got a new ’04 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. I’ll have to post pictures some day.

Some while back, our company was looking at getting a new mail server. At first, we were considering the open-source version of Zimbra that runs on Linux. Well, after a licensing fiasco with them, we decided to use Exchange. I just about quit. We got this hugely beefy system to run it on. 4gb RAM, ~400GB RAID5 (after raid there’s that much), dual xeon procs, not sure the speed.

Good thing we got such a robust system, otherwise I would be getting errors like this:

Error

Actually, I DID get that error from the Exchange server. No resources available to send my text-only email of 2 sentences in size on such a massively overpowered machine. Maybe it’s because it only has half the resources that Exchange requires? Never got anything remotely like that from the Zimbra install on the Linux box. But hey, we HAVE to have the calendar and shared contacts, otherwise we may end up as PHB’s.

Sweet.

Ya’ll have a spectacular weekend. openSUSE Linux 10.2 all the way.
