All the web developers out there may find this interesting.

O'Reilly Network Launches ONLamp.com
February 1, 2001
ONLAMP.COM OFFERS SOLUTIONS FOR HIGH-PERFORMANCE WEB DEVELOPMENT New Site
Promotes Optimized, Integrated Use of Linux, Apache, MySQL and Scripting
O'Reilly Network has launched ONLamp.com, a web site promoting the
integrated use of several high-performance open source technologies used
for web development. The new site is being shown at LinuxWorld Expo in New
York this week.
LAMP is an acronym describing a suite of powerful web development tools:
Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP, Perl, or Python. O'Reilly Network has
previously focused on these technologies individually, and now has
brought them together in one location to save time for developers.
ONLamp.com will provide articles and resources related to web site
performance, development, security, Linux/BSD system administration, Apache
installation, Linux multimedia, and MySQL data management.
The new site will feature developers/writers such as Noel Davis writing the
Linux Security Alerts column, Dave Phillips finding ingenious ways to
enhance Linux performance, and long-time PHP web developer Darrell
Derrick Story will manage the ONLamp editorial content, and Chris Coleman,
Open Source Editor, will work with developers to deliver a steady stream of
cutting-edge technology articles.
ONLamp's reference section will include such resources as a directory of
important LAMP-related products, helpful tutorials, in-depth columns by
experts, industry analysis, and audio roundtables on key
The term LAMP originated in Germany and is gaining currency among North
American developers as a shorthand for the suite of tools that serious open
source web developers use.
While the acronym LAMP is relatively new, its technologies are not. For
example, IDC reports that Linux is currently used by 20 million people
worldwide. Apache is the most popular web server (source: Netcraft survey).
MySQL.com, reflecting the popularity of the database software's use,
receives 8.7 million of page views per month.
Heavily-visited sites such as Amazon.com have long relied on Perl and a
host of other open source technologies. All of the O'Reilly and O'Reilly
Network sites, receiving a combined total of more than 3 million unique
visitors per month, also rely on the LAMP technologies.
As the premier provider of open source books, online information and
technical conferences, O'Reilly has long been respected for its expertise
and support of these popular open source technologies. The O'Reilly Network
team, like O'Reilly & Associates' book publishing team, is experienced at
providing reliable, useful information, as well as finding and recruiting
leaders in the technical community to share their expertise with O'Reilly
