Ibm's System i Priorities for 2007

As the holiday season approached last December, two key people at IBM's System i division took some time out of their schedules to talk about the technology and marketing areas that they would focus on in 2007 with the i5/OS platform. Many of the priorities that Big Blue has for the platform have been talked about in 2006, such as Voice Over IP telephony and the PHP language running on the platform. But these key IBMers did offer some more insight as well as an initial reaction to my own suggestion that IBM fully embrace user-based capacity pricing for the System i5 line.

Review: Exaile Media Player

One of my favorite open source applications is Amarok, a music player with an intuitive interface that makes boring tasks such as organizing large music collections less troublesome. The only problem with Amarok is that it's a KDE application and I'm a GNOME user.

I've found a good alternative in Exaile, my new favorite media player for Linux.
