Open source 'ready to go' for business applications

,----[ Quote ]
| With open source already mainstream, 
| companies are now arriving at the point 
| where they are prepared to invest in 
| this area for business applications.
| So claims the chairman of the recent 
| Open World Forum and chief executive of 
| Wallix Jean-Noel de Galzain, in a recent 
| interview.
| Galzain said that open source was a 
| mainstream part of IT, found in internet 
| infrastructure and high-performance 
| computing, and would offer opportunities 
| in cloud computing and network 
| technologies.

Microsoft Losing its Grip on UK Small Businesses?

,----[ Quote ]
| Put another way, according to this survey few small business in the UK intend
| upgrading to Windows 7 soon; the majority want to move to solutions
| independent of the operating system, to those based on the browser; and fully
| a third of the companies are using Firefox, not Internet Explorer, for that
| purpose.
| That adds up to a bunch of headaches for Microsoft if those results are
| mirrored across the whole of the UK, because it suggests some fairly seismic
| shifts are underway in the small business sector, and that the company is
| failing on multiple fronts.
