Companies that have web enabled technologies that use ActiveX
are in a dangerous position.
1. ActiveX is proprietory and dangers carrier of virus technologies
so it has to turnd OFF.
2. There is no open source replacements because it is proprietory from
from head to foot. So open source can't help
you as much as it does other projects.
3. So if your products rely on anything with .asp extension, its going
to soon fail in the market place along with your company.
The EU already has >50% use of firefox. That is 50% revenue lost to
your company if your product needs to use a .asp extention
- everyone is affected - from web IP camera manufacturersd
to web developers. Sack your programmers that usees .asp and go
for open source solutions like java and open source code that
allows open sourcers to build viable solutions that work
on the Linux platforms in ways that you don't have the power
to imagine and produce.
