The 'Linux Inside' Stigma

bryanc Re:technical people don't market their things well (366 comments)

And my point is obviously made by this very discussion....

anyway, I didn't say Intel invented little-endianess, just that in the 'early' days of the PC, most non-PC microprocessor applications were 680x0 processors (Mac, NeXT, Amiga, VMEbus systems, every laser printer, early set-top-boxes, many PDAs, ...... on and on). Technical people chose the processors for those machines, but Intel/Microsoft were the king of marketing to the consumer.

The 'Linux Inside' Stigma

bryanc technical people don't market their things well (366 comments)

Tech folks get into specific discussions about the best solution to a problem. People just want to buy 'the best'.

If I had my way, we would not have Intel processors in machines and Windows would have ended at 3.1 when it was clear it was a poor solution. The market didn't work that way and I still have to live with bits in the wrong order and drives identified by their letter.

VPN Solutions for Small/Medium Businesses?

bryanc Re:OpenVPN rawks the Casbah (126 comments)

OpenVPN is great. We've tried the PPTP thing, but there is a tendancy for users to dink with settings that end up with unwanted traffic on our network (e.g. default route goes through the vpn).

OpenVPN puts all of this in a config file even on windows. Distribute the config and installation package and you're done. Need more security? Distribute the key files as well.
