Is Linux the ideal medium to do Web-Publishing?

Post by Bob Ha » Sun, 01 Jun 2003 22:01:44



Hello folks,

I am a student doing a Project on Linux. My project goal is to determine
whether Linux is a better medium to do web publishing than Windows.

For example,

1. Can Linux do simple HTML editing, e.g. notepad

2. Can Linux do perl, xml, java etc.

3. Can Linux use the latest web technologies, e.g. Flash etc.

4. I may have miss something but you can add anything that may be
appropriate in relating to the subject.

5. What Linux distribution would you recommend for creating web-sites.

Hope this is not too much to ask.Thanks

Bob

There are a variety of plain-text editors available for GNU/Linux such as
vi, emacs, kedit, gedit, etc.  If you want a GUI or WYSIWYG editor there is
Netscape/Mozilla Composer, Qanta (not sure about spelling) among others.

Quote:> 2. Can Linux do perl, xml, java etc.

Yes. Yes. Tes.

Quote:> 3. Can Linux use the latest web technologies, e.g. Flash etc.

GNU/Linux supports many web technologies.  I recommend you search Google for
some ideas.

Debian GNU/Linux for ease-of-updating packages.  Slackware Linux if you want
to have more control over what is installed on the web server.  Most
distributions can easily handle web serving including a few specialised
floppy-disk-based distributions.

You will learn much more by researching the answers to your own questions
using the excellent search facilities of Google.com or visiting the IBM
developer website.

There are a gazillion text editors for linux.  Some specifically directed
towards html editing, such as quanta, bluefish, screem, vi, kate ...

What does "do" mean.  Create?  Run?  Parse?  The answer to all these is:
Yes.

Quote:

What does "use" mean?  Display?  Yes.  Generate?  Not that I'm aware of,
although I'm sure I've seen reference to projects on freshmeat that can
generate .swf files.  Not sure if Macromedia Flash works under wine.

You appear to have missed the research component of your assignment.

Any distro that includes vi - which is almost all.

Why do you feel it neccessary to not only lie, but initiate a
crosspost in order to do so on multiple newsgroups?

For the reader, Flatty is as usual, lying. It's a flatty reflex.

Yes, Linux can do all or most of the above (depends in part what you
mean by "latest web technologies" )

Anyone who claims that Linux doesn't do Perl, XML, Java, or allow you to
edit textfiles is either an idiot, or thinks you are.

Fartfish is just replying to itself in the thread s/h/it started. Like
my little boy does when he's playing with his trucks and stuff.

Speaking of pouring out of the woodwork, we keep getting a lot of
spider mites and gnats out of the MICROS~1 groups over here. Can't you
corral those things or disinfect the place or something?

Well, one possible solution to flatfishs crosspost would be that everyone
answering such crossposted drivel should always do so with the html-crash
bug. The utter morons from the wintendo groups he would like to call in
would soon learn (you know, even apes are able to learn some) that
crossposted flatfish idiocy is poisoned and will result in crash courses

1. patents!!! publish, publish, publish.

I am not philosophically against software patents when something is truly
valuable, but I am against what is currently being patented. Stupid little
techniques which are obvious to anyone skilled in the art.

Take the patent on hostname session management. It says that using the session
name in the hostname of the URL is patented. For instance:

session1232233.mydomain.com/index.html

is patented. The problem with it is that it wasn't possible until named was
able to use wildcards. It didn't take any real inventiveness. It is a tiny,
minuscule thing added to a much larger open system: named.

The only way to combat this is to write and publish these stupid little things
as we think of them. The average open source developer, or closed source
developer, does not have the resource to pursue a patent unless funded by a
company, but we do have the resource to publish!

Once published, and a date becomes a verifiable public record, we can create a
history of prior art. With prior art, we can fight non-sense patents on trivial
techniques that doubtless we have all though about.
