The Way of Responsible Computing

For an IT administrator or any member of an organization, it is important to have a stable and secure infrastructure. It lets everyone focus on the tasks that bring success to the collective group.

Diagnostics

A process manager should work efficiently, able to display all running services. All processes should be under the direct control of the operating system.

A network status manager should display all active connections at what ports, initiated by what user.

Security

The term virus should only be known in medical contexts, not in the day to day activities of using a computer. Thankfully Unix derivative operating systems such as Linux and Mac were designed to be immune to them.

Stability

Production servers should remain steadfast and operational, always online and able to deliver services. Systems should be lightweight, requiring little memory to push out tens of thousands of requests per day.

Usability

Office software should be efficient, be able to read all formats including open document standard, free, and readily available for download. (Open Office)

Web browsers should be able to block popups, protect the user, and adhere to international standards. (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera)

Desktops should be up to date and lead the industry in usability. Both Gnome and KDE have provided commercial operating systems with most or all desktop usability innovations. The difference is that they appear several years earlier in Linux, and are freely given to the public.
