CyberKnights supply Open Source products wherever possible, and particularly Free (Libré) Software distributed under the GPL - the Libré part is important due to the choices and power it brings, and the overheads (auditing etc) that it takes away.
The list of available products is extensive, we’ve included a few favourite highlights here to give you some idea of what is available. If you seek a much more exhaustive list, try FreshMeat, and here is a local list of the 2539 packages included with Mandriva Linux™ 2007.0. See also the Mandrake 10.0 version. Note that you can click through to individual package pages & pull down everything including source code if required.
We have a special on at the moment, which is a BGP-capable, VPN-capable ultra-low-maintenance router-style server in a half-wide half-deep 2RU format for AUD$1500+GST.
We have a new product, a game-console-based Thin Client workstation installed for around AUD$900+GST with a 17” flat screen depending on your precise configuration requirements.

Linux, along with Solaris, also came out ahead of Windows in terms of administration costs, despite the fact that it’s less expensive to hire Windows system administrators. The average Windows administrator in the study earned [USD]$68,500 a year, while Linux sys admins took home [USD]$71,400, and those with Solaris skills were paid [USD]$85,844. The Windows technicians, however, only managed an average of 10 machines each, while Linux or Solaris admins can generally handle several times that. — CIO Update, summarising a Robert Frances Group report
