Cisco becomes a major Linux server vendor overnight

,----[ Quote ]
| I wrote about Cisco's contest last June as Cisco's 
| way of paying developers to stick a finger in the 
| Microsoft eye with a $100,000 bounty for writing 
| Linux-based applications for its AXP (Application 
| Extension Platform).
| I clearly underestimated Cisco's ambitions.



Cisco "Think inside the box" contest finalists answer my questions

,----[ Quote ]
| Jack Wallen had the opportunity to interview three of
| the eight finalists in the latest Cisco âThink inside
| the boxâ contest. Read about what the finalists had to
| say about developing for open source, the future of
| Linux, and their projects.

| The Local Advertising Mesh Network, an advertising platform
| for local ad management, is Rajesh Kotagiri's response to the
| challenge Cisco put forth in the Developer Contest guidelines
| -- to use the "network as a platform" approach and develop an
| application using Cisco's Linux-based AXP (Application
| Extension Platform), a service module on its ISR (Integrated
| Services Routers).


Cisco Developer Contest Finalists: Team CampUser

,----[ Quote ]
| In June, Cisco announced the ten finalists in its
| "Think Inside the Box" developer competition. The
| global contest centered on the "network as a platform"
| philosophy, and asked applicants to develop
| applications using Cisco's Linux-based AXP
| (Application Extension Platform), a module on its ISR
| (Integrated Services Routers).


Cisco, Red Hat in the Cloud: Friends or Enemies?

,----[ Quote ]
| What is the operating system of the cloud? Linux vendor Red Hat would like it
| to be Linux. But networking giant Cisco, despite working closely with Red Hat
| in a number of areas, may be going another direction entirely.
| Both Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) and Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) were busy last week with
| their own respective cloud-related initiatives. Red Hat launched a new cloud
| certification program while Cisco outlined its go-to-market cloud strategy.
| Is there an intersection between the two vendors and their cloud initiatives?


Cisco offers Linksys 802.11n router with Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The choice of Linux still allows for media sharing and, through USB storage,
| can share media to any computer or other device that recognizes UPnP.
| Security is also as advanced as other routers with a single-button Wi-Fi
| Protected Setup link for those computers that support it. Cisco's latest
| hardware should be available today and sells for $120.


Cisco releases Linux-powered 802.11n router and media-server

,----[ Quote ]
| At first glance that may not seem that interesting. But, this isnât just a
| new Wi-Fi router with Linux. Cisco, via its Linksys subsidiary has long been
| offering users Linux-powered, hackable Wi-Fi routers like the WRT54GL. But,
| this one also includes integrated Storage Link functionality that lets you
| use inexpensive USB storage devices as NAS (Network Attached Storage) and a
| built-in media-sharing server that Cisco says can handle video, photo, and
| music sharing.


Cisco AXP Contest Field Narrowed to Top 10

,----[ Quote ]
| Companies are growing more comfortable with the concept of open source
| development, but they don't always approach it in the same way. Some try to
| build communities; some try to work in-house first then slowly branch out,
| and some just jump in with both feet and swim in the deep end from day one.



Them's Fightin' Words: Cisco Says HP-Microsoft Alliance Cuts Out Partners

,----[ Quote ]
| Cisco Systems called out Hewlett-Packard's and Microsoft's $180 million
| unified communications and collaboration alliance, saying it leaves partners
| out of the loop and that neither company has the networking chops to support
| the solutions.


Cisco whinges about Microsoft-HP alliance


Cisco finds that it's not so easy working with Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| Apparently Microsoft has "taken limited steps to share users' presence and
| availabilty information," for fear of losing its ability to own all of the
| client.
| Someone should tell Chambers that in reality it's not so easy working with
| Microsoft.


Cisco CEO Says Microsoft Screws Its Partners Everytime...Just Like Apple.

,----[ Quote ]
| If partnering with Microsoft is not a win-win then it must be a win-loseâin
| Microsoftâs favor of course.


Cisco CEO: 'Microsoft Has Given Us a Three-Year Lead'

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft has given us a three-year lead. And we've never lost a
| game when we've had a three-year lead... It's a battle we fully
| intend to win.


Microsoft's Worst Nightmare (Nope, Not Google)

,----[ Quote ]
| The Cisco/Linksys drive into the home follows an absolutely miserable
| effort by Microsoft, which had a first-mover advantage but blew it in
| favor of its Xbox gaming play. Maybe Microsoft figured the timing just
| wasn't right. In any case, Microsoft angered a lot of digital home
| integrators who were hoping for some support to break open the
| market.


Cisco benefits as Microsoft keeps moving the goalposts

,----[ Quote ]
| Forced between choosing between unified comms vendors, many users
| are reluctantly opting to use an alternative to Microsoft. Others,
| it seems, are a lot less disappointed.
| [...]
| The Microsoft partner confessed that Cisco is the preferred option. "Cisco
| has a better track record of consistency on upgrades. Whereas Microsoft?s
| new products can be a completely different kettle of fish from the last,"
| he said.


Cisco, Microsoft, Others Get Together On Security

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft, Cisco Systems and the open-standards Trusted Computing
| Group each developed their own NAC approaches, which use a variety
| of software and hardware to boost network security.


Can Microsoft and Cisco Still Be Pals?

,----[ Quote ]
| That puts it in direct competition with Microsoft, which is No. 2
| with its Live Meeting service. Microsoft's big push will come in
| June when it begins producing a host of products, including Microsoft
| Office Communicator 2007.


Why the world needs openness, not interoperability.

,----[ Quote ]
| This NAC/NAP lovefest would be laughable if it weren't such
| a kick-in-the-teeth to the rest of the industry, enterprise IT, and
| all Internet users. A Cisco/Microsoft oligopoly stalls implementation,
| stifles innovation, and makes the network less secure. In this way, Cisco
| and Microsoft are standing in the way of progress.
