Open Source Choices 

,----[ Quote ]
| Open source was Best Supporting Actor in 
| the 2010 Intelligent Enterprise Editors' 
| Choice Awards. It plays an important part 
| -- in some cases, a star turn -- for four 
| of The Dozen top-category winners and for 
| eleven of the thirty-six Ones to Watch. 
| Noting that the awards reflect both current 
| impact and our expectations -- all forty-
| eight awardees, really, are "ones to watch" 
| -- clearly, in our estimation, open source 
| has reached a new level of enterprise 
| importance and promise.
| [...]
| There's really nothing new in my points, 
| just a reaffirmation and extension of 
| common knowledge regarding the value open 
| source. Intelligent Enterprise clearly sees 
| open source as delivering ever increasing 
| value for enterprise information management 
| and applications. 2011 should be no 
| exception.


Open source: dangerous to computing education?

,----[ Quote ]
| First, let's talk about breadth of 
| opportunity. Mark seems to assume that 
| every student developer has the opportunity 
| to engage in commercial development. This 
| is demonstrably untrue. It may be true that 
| an elite school like Georgia Tech provides 
| these kinds of opportunities to most of 
| their conputing students -- but what about 
| everywhere else? For that matter, what 
| about the kids at Georgia Tech who, for 
| whatever reason, don't make the cut? Unless 
| you can guarantee 100% co-op or internship 
| placement for every computing student on 
| Earth (and let's be honest, we'll never get 
| even close to that number), there will 
| always be aspirant student developers who 
| have no chance at all to see a commercial 
| codebase, or to engage in Legitimate 
| Peripheral Participation.



10 important Linux developments everyone should know about

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux technology, development model, and
| community have all been game-changing
| influences on the IT industry, and all we can
| really do is stand back and look at it all,
| happy to have been along for the ride for
| developerWorks' first 10 years. The Linux zone
| team has put together this greatly abbreviated
| collection of things that stand out in our
| minds as having rocked the world of Linux in a
| significant way.
| Much too much has happened with Linux in the
| last 10 years to do anything like a complete
| job of listing the important events and
| technological advances surrounding this
| operating system. But nevertheless, in
| celebration of our 10th birthday, the Linux
| zone team looks back and presents to you some
| major milestones, why they matter, and what we
| wrote about them. Please to enjoy.
