The Future's So Bright For Open Source I've Got to Wear Shades

I recently broke my glasses though I admit I don't wear them much and I started to notice that I was squinting more. Sometimes I could make out what was going on on my Linux desktop, which is set to a whopping 1920 x 1200 resolution, but I couldn't quite make out some items without closer inspection. That's like the way I think businesses and government agencies have come to view Linux and Open Source. They've been squinting at the "Open Source movement" knowing that there's something worth looking at there but not quite making out the details. I think those days are ending since the drought in IT spending has left the wary IT buyer looking for more efficient and cost-effective solutions that give them big returns on their IT dollars - or at least don't waste them on what, in hindsight, turns out to be frivolous solutions that don't return what was promised. What ... (more)

Ulitzer Responds to Adobe's User Community

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our readers, authors, and the newly born Ulitzer community for making our March 29, 2009 beta launch an astonishing success! Ulitzer, the first "new media" platform in history, is on its way to becoming one of the fastest growing professional viral sites on the Internet. Since Ulitzer's beta launch a few weeks ago, a number of inaccurate and untrue blog posts have also appeared that were picked up from blog sites from wihin Adobe's user community. Some of these stories even accused Ulitzer of "posting stolen articles." Two weeks after our beta launch, out of roughly 1 million original articles published on the site, not a single story was removed for copyright violation.  This is because either Ulitzer.com owns the articles, including all content that appears at www.sys-con.com, or has the copyrights to each and every ...
