XenSource, the Palo Alto, Calif. startup that also oversees the open source Xen project, will launch its first management and automation solutions based on the open source Xen 3 virtualization engine in two weeks, said Simon Crosby, founder and vice president of strategy for Xensource.

Open Source virtual server software a likely dark horse

When new hardware that supports virtualization technology comes on the market next year, IT managers will have more to choose from than popular software from VMware Inc. and Microsoft.

Windows shops will likely be looking over the Xen 3.0 hypervisor and commercial products built on this release, such as software from XenSource Inc., in Palo Alto, Calif. Xen is an open source alternative for x86 computers that can execute multiple virtual machines, each with its own operating system (OS), on a physical system. The latest release, Xen 3.0, is expected out in early November.

Using the Ruby Development Tools plug-in for Eclipse

This article introduces using the Ruby Development Tools (RDT) plug-in for Eclipse, which allows Eclipse to become a first-rate Ruby development environment. Ruby developers who want to learn how to use the rich infrastructure of the Eclipse community to support their language will benefit, as will Java developers who are interested in using Ruby.

Three reasons why Internet-based applications are a bad idea

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Oct 17, 2005 11:30 AM EDT)
  • Groups: Sun; Story Type: News Story
We've all heard the hype about how Sun and Google may someday, somehow, produce a version of StarOffice or OpenOffice.org that you'll access online through your browser instead of installing an office suite on your hard drive. Even though I think "The Network is the Computer" makes a fine marketing slogan, I am still going to keep most of my software where it belongs: on my own computer. Here are three reasons why.

Meet the 21-yr-old Norwegian who defied Hollywood

  • Pittsburgh Post Gazette; By Steve Stecklow, The Wall Street Journal (Posted by tadelste on Oct 17, 2005 10:35 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story

Steve Stecklow writes "Jon Lech Johansen dropped out of high school after just one year. He lives alone most of the time, except when he stays with his parents in his native Norway. The 21-year-old doesn't drive, rarely goes to parties and says he has no close friends, except his father. He spends about nine hours a day in front of his computer screen.

"Yet this reclusive young Norwegian is the man who may be the entertainment industry's worst nightmare. Mr. Johansen, Hollywood executives claim, has done more than almost anyone in the world to ignite the explosion of movie piracy on the Internet, costing them billions of dollars in lost sales. He scoffs at that."

In our view, if Hollywood would provide the Linux software to watch the movies we bought as they do with Microsoft Windows and allow us to watch them on our personal computers, then maybe they would not have a problem. -Ed
