Open Magazine - Your strategic guide to Open Source
Welcome to a newly evolving Open. Strategic Communications, the
publishers of OPEN magazine, and Interex, an independent IT professional
association and publishers of the monthly Interex Magazine and the weekly
e-newsletter Interex Enterprise News have formed a joint venture to
extend our coverage of open source and its influence on IT.
Under this agreement, subscribers to Open will now get the added
benefit of a free membership in Interex without obligation. All Open
subscribers will soon receive weekly electronic Interex Enterprise News
editions designed to offer comprehensive coverage of news, technology, and IT
customer advocacy issues. US subscribers to Open will also be getting a
copy of the solutions-oriented Interex Magazine written expressly for
senior level IT professionals.
We are still working on the details of this exciting new arrangement.
Very shortly, you will be getting an email invitation from Interex, with
more details on the new publications.
Also part of this change is the creation of the Open eXchange web blog.
The blog will be evolving into a new 2-way Table of Contents for reader
discussions. Here you will find the start of a review of SUSE LINUX
On the desktop, the new distribution features KDE 3.4 which introduces
the Kontact framework which integrates KMail for e-main with anti-SPAM
and anti-virus wizards; KOrganizer for shared calendar functions; and
aKgregator for RSS blog and news feeds. On servers, there is XEN from
Cambridge University, a powerful software virtualization tool that may
redefine the power of Linux.
Meanwhile, 3 million .NET developers can't be wrong! But they can be
full of beans (the Enterprise Java variety). While flexibility and
scalability keeps J2EE favored for large-scale enterprise applications, other
productivity issues, such as programming complexity and the need for
skilled Java developers, have up until now retarded broader use of J2EE.
Now programmers working with Visual Studio .NET can contribute to J2EE
projects and radically change the TCO equation.
