Itís Wimbledon fortnight and what better time for strawberries and 
cream than when Tux takes the .NET. OpenBench Labs puts an IBM xSeries 235 
eServer at center court and serves up a first round match between 
Windows 2003 Server EE and SuSE Linux Enterprise Server v8. It's all about 
coaching and Visual Studio .NET 2003 is no match for Intel v7. To spill 
the Beans, team SLES looks mighty impressive.

Celebrating independence, the executive director of the Free Software 
Foundation reveals in an interview with Open whatís behind the rise in 
GNU General Public License violations and what its GPL Compliance Lab 
could do if they werenít as staffing-constrained. Bradley M. Kuhn also 
answers those who would dismiss the GPL as unenforceable and the FSF as a 
trombone looking for some sheet music. 

Next, we visit newcomers WDI, a division of Brunswick Corp., for the 
story about their software for application integration, now presented to 
the outside world as Open Source. Michele Lambert, WDIís general 
manager, talks about Business Integration Engine.
