Headlines often tell the world what university researchers are
accomplishing after long and arduous years examining cures for diseases,
alternative methods of power generation, and new ways to rehabilitate the
banana. This week, the larger metropolitan dailies may not pick up what
we've found as their page-one news, but we really don't care. The
Post-it note from openBench Labs is good enough for us: Unison, an Open
Source file synchronization tool from the University of Pennsylvania's
Institute for Research in Cognitive Science, is software that IT departments
can put to very good use.
See what happens in our openBench Labs LAN scenario where we construct
a Windows-centric environment complicated by a laptop running Linux and
Open Office, in order to assess Unison's performance in handling the
relationships in transit.
Also in the spirit of good user-level tools, Njet Communications is a
young company with a nifty platform for developers in the name of Anvil,
which promises to help build web application projects with only a third
of the time and effort of traditional ways of Java development.
Read how Anvil's pioneers decided to do some serious business homework
on how to make money with Anvil, coming up with a business name, Njet,
a business model, and licensing decisions that make Njet's founders
poster children for business advocates of Open Source. You just have to
like a company that says Njet to .net.
