Stating a Business Case for the Linux Operating System
A 10 page paper providing rationale for choosing Linux operating system over various Windows® systems. Unix – and its Linux variation – remains the most versatile operating system in terms of hardware requirements. Windows is more hardware-specific with each generation, and less open to alteration than either Linux or UnixWare. The paper discussing points of cost, security (system, file, workgroup, Internet), performance and includes a list of some of the companies currently using Linux systems. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
Windows LINUX and UNIX Implementations
If there is no living without networking, there is no living without network security, and this growing threat makes it wise to consider other options to the Windows OS. Two operating systems, UNIX and LINUX, are possibilities. They are compared in terms of implementing network security. Considering what is at stake, LINUX proves the better system. Bibliography lists 6 sources. jvOSimpl.rtf
Stadium Security and Honeywell
A 3 page paper discussing the need for increased stadium security and the capabilities of the Honeywell Stadium Security System. The system includes provision for fire detection, security and close-circuit television, as well as for public address voice alarm and a system for the hearing impaired. It also provides communications capabilities. Expensive at $3.9 million, it may be able to save the stadium through reduced personnel need, tighter security and lower insurance premiums. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
NT2000, UnixWar, and Linux Operating Systems' Hardware Considerations
A 6 page paper comparing the general hardware needs of each of these three operating systems. The ongoing debate typically centers on what operating systems can do; the purpose here is to focus more on what Linux, UnixWare and NT2000 need in order to fully perform. Unix – and its Linux variation – remains the most versatile operating system in terms of hardware requirements. Windows is more hardware-specific with each generation, and less open to alteration than either Linux or UnixWare. Bibliography lists 9 sources.
UNIX, Linux, and Windows OS Security
This 6 page paper compared and contrasts the security characteristic of UNIX and Linux with Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The paper looks at the strengths and weaknesses of each operating system and compared them to asses which is the most secure and which is the easiest to use. The bibliography cites 10 sources.
