Hello Readers!

Broadband is a popular topic in the UK today. BT is in the news yet again – this time they’re trying to sell broadband directly to the public. Unfortunately, this gives the company an unfair advantage over other ISPs offering similar services. And while we’re on the topic of broadband, should the government intervene and use public funds to help boost broadband use? Some say yes – it worked in South Korea. Also in the news is a British startup called Jool. They’re offering Linux servers for sale, but they’re taking a new approach. Jool sells less “geeky” servers – you don’t need to have Linux skills to use their products. That’s good news for Web masters who want to spend more time on business and less time learning an operating system.

‘Schools must drive broadband,’ says expert
How should Britain proceed in its effort to bring broadband to the masses? Some experts say we should look to South Korea, where “the take-up of high-speed Internet services is the best in the world.” Experts believe that the British government should fund high-speed access to schools, plus invest in educational content to be delivered over the new broadband system.

Start-up offers Linux server for non-geeks
The least expensive Web server runs on Linux, without a doubt. And while Linux has had a few security problems, it faces nothing like the onslaught that Windows servers have faced recently. However, many Web masters don’t have Linux skills and don’t wish to learn. Jool, a UK startup, is now offering a Web server just for this audience. The server is completely open source yet hides the operating system from the user.
