    RE: Linux version of Active Directory?
    The Linux version of AD is called OpenLDAP, and they interoperate quite well. Like YP (Yellow Pages) it will provide you with single sign-on and authentication across your network.

    RE: Active Directory Alternative
    Install OpenLDAP. That is an AD compatible directory manager. Here is a link to their web site: http://www.openldap.org/

    RE: Bluray on Linux.
    Yeah. I think the Linux version is free, at least for now. Advanced beta I think.

    RE: Ubuntu with photoshop cs6
    Assuming you want to pay for a 64-bit Windows system (Win7 recommended for that), you can run it in a Linux virtual machine easily enough. For those who have to use Photoshop CS6, that may be your only option, aside from a dual-boot system (yech). I run 64-bit Win7 in a Linux VirtualBox VM (64-bit RHEL 6.x) with no problems.

    RE: apache make httpd cannot allocate memory
    That package has a lot of stuff that other components of the operating system required for most normal use, so it is listed as a dependency in those other packages. As a result, when you removed util-linux, you removed all the dependent stuff as well, resulting in ... well, now you know. This is why yum, as a default, will list what it is going to install or remove and then ask if you want to continue the operation. Unfortunately there is no quick fix for this except to reinstall the OS. You can install all the removed packages manually, but that will take a LOT longer than a simple reinstall/repair. Some installers will let you repair the installation, re-installing the default package set without munging current configurations of other stuff in /etc for example. In any case, you will have a lot of work to do to get back to where you were. My recommendation in such cases is not to uninstall the package in question, but to install it in /usr (the default --prefix option for source packages is /usr/local, normally). If that causes problems, then you can fix that with a simple "yum reinstall util-linux" command. That will restore the default system version of those applications and such.

    RE: Portable Scanner
    1. See if HP has some Linux sane drivers on their web site for this. 2. Go to #1. 3. See if generic sane drivers on your distribution work.

    RE: Welcome: Why build an open cloud?
    My company is seriously looking at Amazon's cloud for additional resources for our cell phone proxy browsers (though who knows what impact the recent power failures due to the storms on the US east coast will have on this effort will be). My opinion (as principal/senior performance engineer for the company) is that we don't want to put all of our eggs in one basket... :-)

    @goingeasy I used to write risk analysis software for the options trading industry in Chicago. To trade stocks/options effectively, you really need dual HD displays (or more), plus a REALLY big pipe... :-)

    RE: Ubuntu with photoshop cs6
    Unfortunately, Photoshop hasn't worked well under Wine since version 7 (pre-CS5). I still keep that version on my system, but to tell the truth I usually run such applications in a Windows virtual machine running under Linux. If you want to run CS6 (or 5 for that matter), then you will have to pay the Microsoft tax... :-( Open source alternatives? Try GIMP. The latest versions have been well-received by the graphics arts community. As for animation tools, there are good FOSS tools for that as well. I'll check with my sister-in-law (a professional animator and animation educator) to see what she knows about FOSS tools of the trade.
