Desktop Options: Pros and Cons
By Rob Enderle | 11 oktober 2007 | Datamation
Well, in the enterprise the votes appear to be in and the winner is – drum roll please – Windows XP SP3. And I can say that before Apple’s Leopard platform has even shipped. For the Apple folks, don’t get overly excited because Windows Vista isn’t exactly cutting through the enterprise market either, and it appears SP3 will flow into the segment in large numbers. Linux, whose supporters have been touting as the best platform overall, is still under 1% on the desktop even though it has doubled its market share. And if this was any other product, after this many years with this little result, we’d write it off like we did the Commodore platform, even though it was vastly more successful in its time on the desktop.

Bringing open source to enterprise management
Computerworld | By Doug Dineley | 11 juni 2007
If you curse your “tier-one” IT management solution as too cumbersome, complex and expensive, you’re not alone. A recent Gartner study declares the big four management software vendors — BMC, CA, HP and IBM — are increasingly vulnerable to SaaS (software as a service) and open-source alternatives. For Bill Karpovich, co-founder and CEO of open source network and system monitoring software provider Zenoss, dissatisfaction with the leading management frameworks is a business model. In fact, Karpovich notes, Zenoss’ solution was born from the failure of IBM Tivoli at USi, an application service provider (and now a subsidiary of AT&T) where he and Zenoss inventor and chief technology officer Erik Dahl used to work.

The IT Sceptic
This blog seeks to balance sunny over-optimism and hyperbole in IT with an icy blast of winter through the techniques of the skeptic as well as applying that other great Litmus test: common sense. This blog takes a critical look at IT’s absurdities, especially those relating to ITIL.
At O'Reilly, a big part of our business is paying attention to what's new and interesting in the world of technology. We have a pretty good record at having anticipated some of the big technology developments in recent history. For instance, we launched the first commercial Web site, GNN, in 1993; we organized the meeting at which the term "open source" was first adopted; we were early investors in Blogger, which helped launch the blogging revolution; and more recently, our Web 2.0 conference launched a world-wide meme. We call this predictive sense the "O'Reilly Radar." And while we're certainly not always right, we are, at least, good at making interesting guesses. Our methodology is simple: we draw from the wisdom of the alpha geeks in our midst, paying attention to what's interesting to them, amplifying these weak signals, and seeing where they fit into the innovation ecology. Add to that the original research conducted by our Research team, and you start to get a good picture of what the technology world is thinking about. What books are people just now starting to buy, and which are falling off in interest? Which tech-related Google AdWords are rising or falling in price? What can we learn from predictive markets tracking tech trends? What do help-wanted ads tell us about technology adoption?
