    Job Interview: Open source server components presentation

    Applied for a job a few weeks back and I got a letter yesterday saying i've got an interview. No problems there.

    They would like me to "Produce a short presentation that outlines what open source server components are available for the linux operating system". No real problems there either, I just need some help in making it a little bit different. I can't stand boring powerpoints where people just read off the slide!

    I'm not the most imaginative person and I dont just want to do a presentation that lists a load of software and their features. Can anyone think of ways for me to spice it up a bit?

    The presentation only needs to be 5-10 minutes long so I suppose I really only need to cover the basics, Apache, Exim, mySQL etc.

    They mean software components right? Because components always makes me think of hardware?!?

    Unless you know of any open source hardware components then I'd assume it's software. Got most of it sorted now anyway

    Make sure to cover most server roles, ie. DHCP, DNS, Web, Database, Email, Security, Authentication

    I wouldn't use Powepoint if they are into their open source

    The only thing I can think to include is that there are are number of companies (Novell, IBM, Sun, etc.) that are opening up some of their components to the open source community while commiting to continuing their development too.

    They said it's to be done in Powerpoint, think it's a bit much to assume everyone has it to be honest!

    I've covered all the major server rolls, included stuff like Network Management, storing DNS zones/configs in mySQL, think i've got it all covered
