  • Blog Post: WS's and Longhorn

    Charles Cooper of CNET has an interesting take on Longhorn and Web Services. Ok, so he says that big companies aren't abandoning ship on J2EE just because Ballmer says .NET is better... But in fact, if you look at the toolset provided by VS.net, developing Web Services with .NET is far easier than...

  • Blog Post: More on the Novel takeover of Ximian

    CNET's Robert Lemos recently spoke to Chris Stone (Novell's vice chairman) about the takeover... When asked about how the takeover will affect the Mono Project, Chris had this to offer: “Mono is great. I like the idea very much of being able to run .Net applications on Linux and recompiling things...
  • Blog Post: Newsgroups & RSS --> why not?

    Chris Sells made an excellent point last week when he said he doesn't read anything that doesn't have an RSS feed. You know, I was thinking just last night that I don't get around to reading the microsoft.* newsgroups as much as I want to recently. I like looking through all the posts in a few selected...

    Oh, this is sweet!!!  SmartPhone Thoughts talks about this company Dopod who announced the first SmartPhone 2003 device. Some good stuff with this phone.

  • Blog Post: Macromedia

    Ok, I must admit, I have been Macromedia ignorant.

  • Blog Post: (re)Look at TMC Performance Data

    Christophe  points out that TMC re-released its famed report on J2EE vs .NET performance.
