Back in the day, your operating system was a big deal. It was who you were. Mac vs. Windows was like Catholic vs. Protestant, or Republican vs. Democrat, and about as rational. Now it's somewhere down around Coke vs. Pepsi...So many of the file-compatibility issues have been solved, and so much computing goes on in the browser anyway. So who cares?
Barely a week after a U.S. judge approved a landmark antitrust agreement with Microsoft, company executives were swapping e-mails suggesting Dell deserved a beating for its growing interest in Linux, according to documents filed with a state court.
As an educator, I am interested in course management systems (CMS) applications for courses, curriculums, and institutions. Well-known proprietary CMS applications such as WebCT and Blackboard are too expensive for the schools and companies I work with.

The previous incarnation of this book (seven years old, now) was a heavy hitter in the Linux and UNIX communities. While that's not a bad thing, it doesn't do much for you if you administer a heterogeneous server and desktop environment (tell me you don't have any Windows computers at all where you work). Preston threw a much wider net this time, covering not only UNIX/Linux and Windows but Mac OS X, HP-UX, AIX, Solaris, and even VMware. Most backup and recovery books on the market target specific OS and hardware platforms. That would seem to make sense on the surface and would make the book easier to write. This book however, proposes to be the "one-stop-shopping" text for just about everyone's needs. Preston's first book on the subject was a smash. Let's see if lightning strikes twice in the same place.
An industry coalition that has represented competitors of Microsoft in European markets before the European Commission stepped up its public relations offensive this morning, this time accusing Microsoft of scheming to upset HTML's place in the fabric of the Internet with XAML, an XML-based layout lexicon for network applications.
Web 2.0 is a popular buzzword, but nobody seems altogether sure what it means. It has something to do with user-driven content and interaction among users, but is there more to it?
Web 2.0 is still one of the computer industry's hottest buzzwords, despite widespread disagreement as to what the term actually means. This month, The Geronimo renegade cuts through the hype and looks at the Apache Geronimo project as both an enabler of Web 2.0 applications and as a Web 2.0 application itself.

Last year the Italian FreeBSD user group, GUFI, rekindled the FreeSBIE project to develop a live CD based on the FreeBSD operating system. After more than four months of development, and an equal number of beta releases, the project released FreesBIE 2.0 this month.

I've got to hand it to Practical PHP and MySQL author Jono Bacon: There aren't a lot of writers who could get me to bring a book about Web development on a plane to keep from being bored. He understands that some people don't want hundreds of pages of tutorials about everything a language has to offer. Instead, Practical PHP and MySQL dives right in with a compact, efficient overview of both the PHP programming language and using a MySQL database, and follows that with some hands-on projects.
