So what's going on with Linux and Linus these days? There are a lot of people who are asking, with yet another delay of Microsoft's Vista. Linux could emerge a victor in this voracious vindication for valor with the votive that there is value in the virtues of running Linux. That being said, you may call him Linus... and this was our interView:
One of the main reasons that I chose kubuntu over the more popular Ubuntu was the KDE base that it was built on. KDE, in my opinion, has one of the best free IDE available for it: KDevelop.

In the short, medium, and long term IBM realizes that AJAX is a true genie, now out of its bottle - which is why it loosed its OpenAJAX initiative on the world a couple of months ago. But is Open AJAX, SYS-CON's West Coast Bureau Chief Roger Strukhoff asks, a bit too open in that it does not have a structure, a specific mission or goals, membership requirements, or milestones that will define its success?
