An Unholy Alliance?
I have a confession to make. Sometimes, when I'm trying out an unfamiliar open-source Security, strength, a lower TCO: find out about all the advantages of IBM Middleware on Linux. Latest News about open source component, I cheat. Even if the software I'm working on will deploy to Linux, I'll sometimes develop it on Windows first. Why? Because on Windows, an open-source component is likely to come with an installer that just works. That's a huge advantage. The game of software development is dominated by the evaluation of available components and the selection of those that best meet needs. To play well, you must be able to evaluate and select as easily and quickly as you can.
