Open Source
Open Source is an idea whose time has come. Comprehensive information and extensive links can be found on the Open Source Initiative web site. It is very important to be aware of the contributions of the Free Software Foundation and the GNU Project to the development of the free software movement as we know it today.

The Web:


Debian Project
Debian is my Linux distribution of choice. I believe it is both the most technically sound and politically correct distribution. Debian has a reputation for being hard to install. The initial learning curve is a little steep, but the payoff is that Debian is by far the easiest distribution to maintain once it is up and running.
OpenBSD Project
As security becomes a bigger issue, you might want to consider OpenBSD as an alternative to Linux on exposed machines. OpenBSD is secure by default. The project emphasizes security, cryptography, and stability. And the documentation is superb, including release-specific man pages that are comprehensive and correct.
SourceForge is an important project which, in their own words
. . . is a free service to Open Source developers offering easy access to the best in CVS, mailing lists, bug tracking, message boards/forums, task management, site hosting, permanent file archival, full backups, and total web-based administration
SourceForge is hosted by VA Linux Systems, who also own the domain.
