Welcome to www.man-from-linux.com,
a division of
ROSCO Associates Technology Staffing Ltd. (RATS!).
We exist to provide support for Linux
and other Open
Source software to small and medium sized organizations.
We are sure you have heard something of either
Linux or the
Open Source movement by now. The initial articles trashing Linux
in 1998 have given way to articles of praise in 1999. Linux can
even be found in prime time news and mainstream media. In 2000,
attention is being turned to the practical use of Linux
for mainstream business. The same can be said for Open Source
So what is holding you back? Microsoft may have gotten
you to where you are now, but maybe it is time to move on to better
things. There is often an Open Source solution that is cheaper and
better. Perhaps you just need
someone to guide you - someone to be accountable - someone knowledgeable
who you can rely on. That's the Man From L.I.N.U.X.!
We can provide support in a big way or a small way - any way
- No bleeding edge - just tried and true, meat and potatoes
- Transition from Microsoft NT servers to Linux servers - increase
your reliability. Linux makes excellent print and file servers.
- Networking - Inter/Intra/Extra_nets - Linux distributions
come with all you need to set up a network server and provide
such services as email, www, ftp, dns, etc.
- Workstations complete with Graphical User Interfaces - work
as intuitively as with Microsoft Windows, but with more options.
- Open Source solutions with office productivity applications
such as Sun's Star Office suite, The Gimp graphics program, and the mySQL
- Security - forget about cost per seat for firewall protection
and virtual private network licensing - acquisition is totally
free. And security is great!
- Administration and troubleshooting.
- We can create project managed solutions to match your needs,
including complete application development from scratch.
It is no longer necessary for small and medium sized
businesses to pay for the name, whether it is for their
operating systems or for their outsourcing. Solutions from the
Man From L.I.N.U.X. will hold their own (and more) against
solutions from the big name systems houses. You can now decide whether
to pay for developing your outsourcer's infrastructure, or for
developing your own.

of the idea.
