APPLIXWARE SUITE TARGETS LINUX USERS

Posted at June 23, 2000 01:01 PM Pacific

SELECTING AN OFFICE productivity suite can be a daunting task. For many users, their most frequently used business software is a word processor or spreadsheet, such as those in Microsoft Office. However, recent events involving Microsoft, coupled with the trend toward portal-based support for end-user software, have businesses looking for cheaper alternatives. One such option is Applixware Office 5.0, from VistaSource (formerly Applix).

Applixware offers a full-featured and well-designed alternative to Microsoft Office 2000. Currently, Version 5.0 supports only the Linux platform. Users of other operating systems, such as Solaris, Windows, FreeBSD, HP-UX, and Irix, must use Version 4.4.x of the product.

LINUX IS REACHING A CRITICAL TURNING POINT AS THE
MICROSOFT SAGA CONTINUES TO UNFOLD

Posted at June 23, 2000 01:01 PM Pacific

IF YOU TALK privately with representatives from ISVs, you'll find that they have been itching for ages to rally behind some platform other than Windows. Microsoft has left such a long trail of dead bodies that few ISVs remain in denial about the consequences of promoting Windows as a dominant platform.

They know that, given the opportunity, Microsoft always will use Windows to put its competition out of business. The last remaining hope for any ISV is that Microsoft will not consider it a competitor. But as Microsoft expands into every conceivable market, the chances of remaining out of the company's sights are slim to none.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

"Risk is now chaotic and complex in a way that a small incident in one place can become a major incident in another place that you hadn't even thought of. What could start off as a simple intrusion into a corporate network could very quickly become a national security incident.

--Nick Beale, research and development officer for intelligence
services group Infrastructure Defense U.K.
