VMware released the first open source virtual desktop client yesterday allowing Linux end users the ability to connect to Windows desktops managed by VMware’s View product, which previously was only available to Windows users. Check the app out on their Google code page http://code.google.com/p/vmware-view-open-client/. I hope we start seeing more open source utilities from VMware in the near future.
I was recently given a copy of the CUPS Administrative Guide, which was written by Ankur Shah and published by Packt Publishing. The book covers the Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) and offers a very simple yet powerful set of instructions for managing your CUPS environment.
The book is written well, its easy to understand and generally flows very well. The author did a great job explaining how to compile and install CUPS, configure CUPS, check printer status and configuring user access. These are just a few tidbits of information the book touches on.
If you are working with or plan to work with CUPS in the future I highly suggest checking this book out.
I’ve attached a sample of Chapter 4 with permission of the publisher so you can get an idea of how well the book is laid out.
