I'm a fan of GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software (FOSS). Most readers that write me, even ones that disagree with my perspective, count it toward the plus side. They understand my bias -- there's never been any question of it...
We, at LXer.com, don't have all of the answers. I'm not paid to give them to you and I certainly don't even begin to think that if I were, I would have them all. But I can speak about what I do know. I have some friends here that share the same opinions. They know that to speak the truth, to be true to your own beliefs -- to call them like they see them -- that is where the true power is.

The dramatic growth of its databases has forced ABCC to address increasingly complex user queries, which have required additional processor power, memory, and data storage capacity. In order to address these growing demands, ABCC has purchased an SGI(R) Altix(R) 3700 supercomputer, powered by 256 Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 processors and running the open-source Linux(R) operating system, which will serve as an important scientific computational resource that is part of a growing list of SGI servers at the center. ABCC researchers depend on the Altix systems' scalability and their ability to handle large memory problems, such as modeling anti-cancer drug interactions with known tumor targets or analyzing genomic/proteomic data.

Depending on how you look at it, Novell's Open Enterprise Server is either more of the same old stuff, or a major breakthrough in how advanced services can be built to run on a variety of base operating system kernels.
Based on our Clear Choice Test of OES, we think it's a major breakthrough in Novell's long-stated intention to marry its directory and administrative applications to Linux. OES layers a highly competitive directory service onto Linux, provides decidedly evolved administrative and management components and offers very good, egalitarian client support.

As alternatives to Microsoft's Office 2003, the free OpenOffice.org suite and low-cost StarOffice both have a lot to offer. eWEEK Labs recently reviewed StarOffice 8, and was impressed by its broad platform support and low cost -- two measures by which the Sun Microsystems Inc. office productivity suite edges out Microsoft Corp.'s market-leading Office 2003 but falls short compared with its open-source sibling, OpenOffice.org 2.0.

With open-source productivity suites getting better and better, the cost of Microsoft Corp.'s Office is looking higher and higher to FN Manufacturing LLC.
Last year, FN Manufacturing began testing OpenOffice.org 1.1.1 with the hope of mitigating the costs associated with an enterprisewide upgrade to Microsoft Office 2003. FN Manufacturing's goal was not necessarily to entirely replace Microsoft's Office suite, but to find and deploy a more cost-effective office solution where and when possible. And for Ed Benincasa, an eWEEK Corporate Partner and vice president of MIS at FN Manufacturing, the more the OpenOffice.org suite matured, the more compelling he found the open-source alternative to be.
