Response to ZDnet article on Medsphere

Dana Blankenhorn has posted an article regarding my claim thatMedsphere has betrayed the community on ZDnet.Is Medsphere taking it back, is a great article overall, but its conclusion is terrible. From the article:Medsphere's board probably feels it was a Little Red Hen, doing all the work for a lazy community's profit. In his defense, Dana is one of many people who do not understand that Medspheres business model relies entirely on the community-built VistA codebase. Given its current actions, this makes Medsphere alot more like a"slimy brown leech" than a"little red hen". Still I am glad to see that the mainstream blogs are starting the pick this up. It is important for Medsphere's board to see that this issue will only get bigger and bigger, as it recieves more publicity.

Linux Faithful: Vista No Threat

The Linux faithful were quick to dismiss Microsoft’s Windows Vista launch Thursday, saying it poses no threat to the adoption of the open-source operating system.

  • Story Type: Reviews; Groups:

This book is not what you might expect from a Cisco Press title. If you are looking for the config register setting in a password recovery procedure or want to find out what happens to a data-link frame when its received on a router interface, don't bother with this book. This is not a prep guide for the CCNA, CCNP, or any other Cisco certification. If you don't know what show startup-config or show ip ospf database router mean, find another book. Alexander Clemm's text has nothing to do with those details.
