Open Source Embrace Gives Sun New Fans

,----[ Quote ]
| Sun's first stab at open source was via the Common Development and
| Distribution License (CDDL) -- a modified Mozilla open source license
| recently approved by the Open Source Initiative (OSI). That didn't go over
| very well, so Sun switched to the more popular General Public License (GPL),

Coders Tell Why They're Avoiding Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft Corp. undoubtedly wanted to avoid its current predicament. It has
| been publicly talking up features in Vista since 2003 -- half a decade.
|
| But such "overmarketing," as Krasowski calls it, can rebound. Experienced
| developers have become jaded towards the third-party apps Microsoft trots out
| as exemplars of Redmond's latest technology -- "demoware," he calls them --
| that sparkle with flashy animation and video.
